Jar of Compliments
Get a mason jar, or mug, and fill it with little slips of paper with compliments about your significant other.
This book will be filled with little coupons your significant other can redeem. Suggestions include: “1 ticket for a romantic dinner”, “1 ticket for a long massage”, etc.
Who doesn’t love sweets? They’re even more sweet when they’re made by someone you love. Try making some cupcakes, cookies, truffles, or whatever their favorite treat may be.
This may take a bit of time to create, but it will be worth it! You can do it just in your home, at a park, or all across town. They will have to follow the clues to find the next clues and end up at some special place. Don’t be surprised if they ask for some clues. Tip! Try adding in special places you two have been together like “Go to that place where we first met” or “That place where you spilled your coffee”.
