Anniversaries and birthdays are not the only time you should send a card or write a love note. Speak “sweet somethings” to your partner by using Post-It® notes in unexpected places, and express it in every way you can. Leave your sweetheart love notes – scattered around the house, in the garage and in the car.
Cookie jars are great hiding places for love notes. Leave a note in her sewing kit or on her sewing machine. Buy him/her an “I (heart) you” coffee mug.
A few racy notes in the privacy of your home is fine too. “I love you” is not the only way to express your love. Say it with love quotes, loving poems, and hand-written love letters. Be creative. Use your imagination.
Leave a love note in his pre-packed lunch that you made for him. Leave a note for him in his trouser pocket. Spray your notes with cologne, so he will be certain to know it is there.
I once unrolled a roll of toilet paper and left a sticky love note rolled up inside in her bathroom. Hide a note under her makeup tray. Carve “I love you” in her bath soap. Buy a cheap tube of lipstick (don’t use hers) and write a note on the mirror she keeps in a drawer. Write a message for him on the bathroom mirror with his shaving cream.
Hide a love note in the current book she is reading near the end of the book. Put a note inside the freezer in a freezer bag or on the pizza box in the fridge. Tape a note under the TV remote.
Have a single rose delivered to his/her office with a brief love note attached.
Write “I love you” on several other languages on different Post-It® notes and scatter them everywhere.
Tape a love note around her meds bottle. Leave a note for him under the bathroom toilet seat: “Thanks for putting the lid down!” 😉
Fill her car with gas and leave a love note on the rear-view mirror. Write something romantic on a Post-It® note and before she opens her favorite magazine to read, stick it to a page you think she is sure to read. Send a cell phone text message.
Leave a note tucked in his luggage (in a pair of socks) if he’s doing the traveling or leave a note on the pillow along with a Hershey’s kiss at home. A well written note can convey every flirtatious thought and then some. Pin a note inside a shirt just returned from the cleaners. A sticky love not on his laptop can be a surprise.
Buy a GIANT cookie and write “I love you!” or “je t’aime” (that’s French) in frosting.
Change your name in your partner’s cell phone directory to say “I Love You” instead of your name. Next time you call they are in for a surprise.
Cars are neat places to hide love notes – on the top of the sun visor, in the glove compartment and one of my favorites is to drive by her office and leave a note on the driver’s side window. Leave a love note attached to the spare tire saying, “I love you – Call AAA!”
Tack something sweet to his workbench tool board in the garage. Stick a note to the button of the garage door opener that says, “You can push my button anytime!”
Buy some sidewalk chalk. Draw a large heart on the driveway with red chalk and write, “I love you” in the middle.
It’s the thought behind the love note that counts. Some love notes will be find right away and others may be found months later. However, no matter when they are found they will always convey love and bring a smile to your partner’s face. Hopefully your love will not only be understood, but it will also be welcomed and returned.
Once last tip: Always remember to say, “I love you!” – out loud – to your partner at least once each day. Saying those three little words works magic in your relationship! Express your love in action as well as in words. Connect physically. Unexpected hugs are good too! Opps! Guess that’s two tips! 😉
