Cute gift idea

Sometimes its hard to think of gifts and even harder to think of creative gifts that you can make. To make things a little easier here is a little gift idea. 


My sweet husband gave me a gift for Christmas that is going to last all year. What he did was write on little slips of paper that I get to pick everyday. Each one containing something different, some are memories of us, or a gift for that day, or something he admires about me. 

So for example one day I got breakfast in bed (And I pick what I want). Or he would tell me something funny that happened while we were dating.

So it's a really inexpensive way to show your love everyday and it sure is fun to see what I will pick
Another thing that he did since there are 365 days in the year, he made it a little easier on himself by saying I can either pick a paper or a chocolate for the day. And if your a chocolate lover like myself its a fair trade :)

So you can give it as a cute Christmas gift, Birthday gift, Valentine Gift or just to say I love you...
