This was my gift to J for last year’s Valentine’s Day. Here are the cool things about this gift:
- It’s FREE.
- It lasts all year long.
- It is also a gift for me.
- You really learn to show love for each other better.
I covered some canisters with paper and stickers. I used decoupage, but you could use double sided tape, too.
Here are the rules:
-Write 46 things (since there are 46 weeks left in the year) that we want our spouse to do with us or with us.
-Put those sheets of paper in your canister, and then we will swap canisters.
-On Sundays, we will each pull a strip of paper out of each other’s jar, and we’ll have to do whatever the spouse asked for.
-We will have the whole week to do the request.
-We will put the papers (with the writing hidden) on our bathroom mirror as a reminder.
On Sunday, J and I each drew one strip of paper (his were blue; mine were pink). Some of his said things like: Create a new meal without a recipe; compose a rap song for me; invite 3 couples over for games; iron 4 shirts for me. Mine were requests like: Bring me a candy bar home from work; rub my feet; take care of Abs on Saturday morning so I can sleep in; write me love notes around the house.
I got this idea from an article I read, and I was happy that J was super excited about this project. Yea for a good, free gift!
Do you have any good, cheap ideas for gifts??
