Tell me, doesn't all that 'All I need is you.' stuff just get on your nerves after awhile?? When I wouldn't quit pestering I was told 'Then MAKE me something, you don't need to buy something, I want something that comes from your heart.'
Make something? In my SPARE time? Really? I'd have to pay someone to make something, haha.
So, anyhow, I settled on these two things.
I made a message in a bottle using my printer, red ribbon, multi colored stones, stickers & a glass bottle I got at Hobby Lobby. (BTW, did you know they charge upwards of $60.00 for these if you order them online?!!)
And I got the best picture of us together & went to the engraving store and got a nice frame engraved with our nicknames. (Ok, I cheated there, but it was only HALF cheating! And it was way cheaper than I thought it would be!)
For Valentines day, I got a giant jar and put stickers all over it, not lovey type stickers but like manly ones & filled it with black Jelly beans (his favorite) that I found at an actual candy store. That only cost about $8.00
If you have a Hobby Lobby near you... hit it. Best store on earth, even if you are not very creative ( like me! ) you can always find something, and what man would turn down candy??
