A few months ago I promised you a new series: Absolutely no occasion. In a few words, do this and make someone you love/like a lot feel awesome.
So today I bring you…the six pack of love.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Your someone’s favorite six pack. (Alex recently discovered a new favorite beer ne’er to be found at the local grocer. So while he worked today and I did not, I took a trip to Binny’s for this most loved Augustiner. But of course, this isn’t really about the beer. So any variety will do the trick.)
Simply cut out the tags, fold on the dotted line, cut slits in the top portion of the tags, and slip onto the bottle necks. When Alex got home from work today and opened the fridge, he gave me the look of giddy delight that I had hoped for. It works!
Now gents, before you give me the ol’, “My lady’s not much of a beer drinker,” let me show you something else:
Yep, these tags are multi-purpose. They fit perfectly on these tiny vases we had. They also worked on candles and wine bottles. (I saved you the trouble and tried it myself.) And let’s not underestimate the power of Scotch tape to attach these tags to any chocolatey treat.
So go ahead, make someone’s day. Heck, make their week! Take something seemingly ordinary and turn it into a reminder of just how cool and appreciated your spouse/BFF/roomie/boo really is.
Fold the card in half, and then in half again. Sign it.
Fill in the hearts using the handy little prompts.
Cut the heart paper into six cards.
Tape the cards in places your sweetheart will find them on Valentine’s Day. Like this:
Even if you’re not into Valentine’s Day cheesiness (maybe especially if you’re not into Valentine’s Day cheesiness), you can make someone feel awesome with just a few minutes and some kind words. (Most of the cards could also encourage a coworker or friend.)
My first 28 years of writing thank you notes was child’s play compared to wedding thank yous. A note seems to hardly suffice for the overwhelming generosity of so many (oh so very many), so a special thank you card is even more important.
