Start now and create the best kind of Valentine’s card for your spouse or friend.
Here is how:
Purchase a beautiful card which is blank inside, or just use whatever paper is available. Believe me, it isn’t the paper that is important here. It’s the handwritten message.
Before you write your message, consider these two questions:
- Why do you love your spouse (or special person)?
- Why you are thankful for him/her?
Then write your answers down. Be sincere and specific, so your loved one knows this is a card written especially for him/her.
If you are the type of person who loves to make crafts, you can take the idea of a handwritten card a step further. Purchase a small blank book, or one that’s created specifically for this purpose. (Such as Hallmark’s What I Love About You book. )
Write down several ideas that tell the story of why you cherish this special person in your life. For example, the Hallmark book provides open-ended questions for you to answer such as, “I love the little everyday things we do together, like . . . .” and, “A story about us that I never get tired of telling is. . . .”
So consider giving your special person a unique creative type of Valentines card. It may turn out to be her or his favorite Valentine
