75 things I love about you.

Now this is a cute idea for Valentine’s Day, but me and my boyfriend had an argument a couple of weeks ago (I snapped over nothing), and so I decided to give him this early as a quick reminder of how special he is to me.


I compiled this list together of some of the things I love about him – some soppy, some not so soppy, some cheeky and some: I can’t even show you (I figured it would make him less likely to vomit if they weren’t all too lovey!). I then folded them all up and put them in a mason jar.

And do you know what, it turned out really cute and he was super happy with it.


All you need is:

  • A mason jar or some other container
  • Paper
  • Sharpies in what ever colour you like
  • Scissors to cut out the 75 things/label
  • Glue to stick on the label (alternatively you could use a sticker)
  • Ribbon for embellishment (optional)

I then as a last minute idea also decided to add this tag which I quickly made from a piece of card, reading:
There are more than 75 things, but I couldn’t fit any more in the jar!

20150109_132509I think it looked so cool in the end and it barely took me any time, I only used things I already had so it cost me no money, and it couldn’t of found anything more personal to give him if I tried.

But the problem with being an eager-beaver is,Β now I have to think of something equally cute for Valentine’s Day…
(that’s not even taking into account that it’s also our two-year anniversary in February!)

      Haha there were a few like that. He’s Greek so one of them said ‘our children will tan easily’ and another said ‘you have a free place for us to stay in Corfu whenever I want to go on holiday’ – haha the important things in life!

      I’m glad you liked it πŸ™‚

    This is such a cute idea! I’m definitely doing this for Valentine’s Day, since I have an extra jar hanging around that I’m not using.

    I love your blog Lauren! Also this is an adorable idea! I’m secretly a soppy person and I love soppy things like this haha, I just wish my boyfriend did too haha!

    What a lovely idea. My husband and I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day. However in April we will have been together for 10 years so this would be perfect to do. Plus it gives me more time to do it x

    I adore this idea, Lauren! My husband deserves one of these… I have been a bit irascible lately.

    Glad you visited, it seems we have a bit in common. Thank you!

    That is a great idea. One that could only be thought of through the creativity of a woman. But I think I may make this for my wife. She may however wonder where I got such a great idea πŸ™‚ lol.
    Also a good exercise to really put things in perspective and think about all of the reasons , I really do love her . in day to day life the subtle securities of the ones we love often get overlooked .

    Great idea !
