Love letters are by no means a new concept, but its a classic that’s worth a mention. It’s easy to get caught up in all the new technology, and the idea of trying to out due yourself when you are gift giving. But the true meaning on Valentine’s Day is to share the love we have for one another.

This is a fun twist on the previous love notes suggestion. You’ll need a deck of cards, a whole punch, and metal rings to keep them together. Each card you’re going to write one thing you love about the other person, until you’ve written on all the cards! Punch holes in the cards and bound them all together with the metal rings, and you’re done!

If you’re into graphic design, this is a perfect idea for you! Grab a bottle (or two) of your persons favorite wine and make a custom wine label!
