Romantic "12 Days of Valentines" ideas for that special someone!




OK my friends I had to put this idea on here!
Because it was a GREAT success for me last year!

As some of you may not know I am a florist....by trade.

AND Valentines is MAD....CRAZY......STRESSFUL.....DIFFICULT for me.....

BUT I LOVE (pardon the pun!) Valentines day!

It has been on the FAVORITE top 3 holidays for me PERSONALLY!
"WORKALLY"(I know its not a word!)...NOT SO MUCH!


But since I have had so much to do AND so little time, I really had to find a way to let MY SWEETIE Kevin know I sooooooo love him & am WISHING I could be with him on VAL day! SOOOO I made this 12 days of valentines up for him. IT WAS so fun!...The weeks before Val-day I put everything together AND was soooo glad I did!

A few of the days take fresh things, Like cookies & Strawberries, so I just had the tags & containers ready to fill & go!

I placed the package on the breakfast table OR in his truck & one I even put in his WORK apron for him to find.

I was a little concerned at the beginning as I started this, because by the time I saw Kevy at night, he had forgotten to say something to me about it. So I was worried he thought my 12 days of gifts was lame ORor silly OR WORSE.... he didn't care. BUT....

NO worry....One day I had not had a chance to put the HOMEMADE cookies on the table....so he calls me up at work AND ASKED if I had "forgotten something this morning AND was I mad at him?" I thought for a minute & said...."did I forget to give you a kiss good-bye?"

He said no...he jsut did not see my treat waiting for him that morning !!!


HE LOVED IT!


ANYWAY here goes:

I've got to give your credit - this is really creative! I wonder what my man would think of it? He, like most, is not very romantic...

Not sure f this posted the first time arfound I just got done reading your post and I have a few ideas for you if you like... you are married so you all have history. Use that to your advantage. .. first take a peace of paper glue it to a peace of cardboard the same shape and size. Write something meaningful or attach a memorable picture. Or even a poem that reminds you of him. Spray his favorite sent on the back side. Chews wisely the picture I'll tell you why in a min. Now then once you have that take and cut what you have made into 12 odd shaped and sizes make no 2 a like. For each day give him one but side it slightly so he has to work for it here's the fun part if you deside on a picture make the picture that of a place you want to meet for dinner/movie/coffee wherever it is you want to meet him at the end of they on val-day. Make sure it's a place he can't get till the last day IE the last peace you give him will have the name or location on it. Now if you go with the letter or poem :: whispers:: and coming from a guy that knows what guys like go with a heart felt poem that drop subtle hints where to meet and just incase he is a normal guy put at the end "detailed map/instructions on reverse side" on every peace you leave leave a clue as to where he will find the one the next day like "You I'll find the next peace of my heart in the place where my hand was most of our first date. That's if your hand was in his right side jacket pocket. That night holding his hand. That is also that he has the articulation of clothing. In short what your attempting to do is a love puzzle poem scavenger hunt. To a guy its almost like an adventure he Will get a kick out of it. Try to st others in on it kind of like where I am putting my gf's 5th clue there's a bakery down the z street from our house. We met online so it was where we had our first date our firs kiss. The first time she said I love you to me. Brings tears just thinking about it. In any case she goes there once a week on sunday to pick up some high end Boston creme thing. I'm not one for sweets but whatever makes her happy. Anyway sorry I digress.... We know the owner personnel and he ha a way to graft the picture of th 5th peace to the top of the cake. Yes she can still eat it redIstributed of the napkins under it will be the real peace. On the back of each peace is a Google earth shot with the latitude and longitude of each hmm of our f2f first 12 DATES. Each one will ha e a counter porn t that when you put it all together all the lines intersect with the location I'm going to ask her for her hand in merage. I'm flying her mom and dad out for the week. An way if you need anymore ideas you can get a hold of me via email at dc1usnavyj@gmail.com or by phone I care not whatever is easiest. 951-235-8365. And the names Hunter. Please no calls after 2100 or 9:00 pm Pacific standard time. Best of luck to you all.
