All The Reasons I Love You // DIY Gift Idea

Want a creative way to show someone all of the reasons you love them?

Write your top ten reasons and tie them to a helium balloons for a wonderfully romantic suprise.  We printed each reason on sticker paper and stuck to different styled scrapbooking paper, but it’s just as sweet (and easier!) to handwrite each reason as well.

Not sure what to give your babe this year?  Make him a DIY Man Bouquet!

Fill a beer mug with all things manly.  Ideas: Jerky, mini bottles of his favorite liquor, cigars, games, anything with a mustache , anything he loves.  At the bottom of the mug stick a styrofoam ball (can get at any craft store) and tape each item to a cake pop or kebob stick, stick it in the styrofoam and finish off with some tissue paper.
