The first thing you will notice about my list of ideas is they all mention a husband. That is because I wrote them from my point of view being a married woman. However, these ideas could work for wives, boyfriends, or girlfriends too.
1. Make A Trail of Love Notes
Write down one thing you love about him such as”his laugh” or “his smile”–anything. Place that note where you husband parks his vehicle, then make a trail of these type of notes either to a small plate of treats just for him or a romantic dinner for two waiting inside or…the ideas are endless.
2. Play Hide and Seek With the Notes
Instead of a trail make up 10 or so random “I love you because…” style notes and leave them in random places for your husband to find throughout his day. One in his lunch, another on his dashboard, and so on until you have them all placed.
3. A Treasure Hunt
This is a twist on my first suggestion, instead of a trail of reasons why you love him, this time make each post it a clue that will lead him to another post-it and so on. Until he arrives at…perhaps a gift certificate for your favorite place to eat for just the two of you and then tell him you already have the babysitter ready. Of course, you could make your treasure hunt with your husband spicier than that too! use your imagination. 🙂
4. Spell Out I Love You In A Big Way
Cover a large space of blank wall or a bathroom mirror with post-it notes arranged to spell out I (heart) U. You might also want to put a picture of the two of you together in the middle of the heart.
5. Create An Outfit Entirely Out Of Post-It Notes
The title says it all.
