them a message in a bottle
Give them a message in a bottle: Age a white piece of paper by brushing
it with cooled tea and setting it on a piece of waxed paper. Once it’s
dry, write a love note on it, roll it up, tie it with a ribbon, and
stick it in a clean, corked bottle. Hide it for your love to find.
them puzzle it out
Make a jigsaw puzzle out of a favorite photo: Glue a photo that’s at
least 8-by-10 onto a thin piece of cardboard; trace puzzle pieces on
the back; then cut them out with a craft knife. Smooth any rough edges
with sandpaper, and present the pieces in a gift box.
a box of candy
Personalize a box of candy by writing messages like “I love you” and
“you’re hot” on adhesive-backed paper and sticking them onto the bottom
of each candy’s brown-paper cup.
Take a calendar, cover each month’s picture with a photo of people,
places, and things your partner loves, and mark days that are special
to the two of you – along with “mystery holidays” throughout the coming
year when you’ll surprise them with something special.
a set of playing cards
Make an adult set of playing cards by taking a regular deck and assigning
a sexy favor to the same cards in each suit – with aces being truly
wild. Then invite them to join you for a provocative night of poker.
