Thursday Thirteen - 13 Love Surprises

Little things mean alot. I'm sure you've heard that before... but it's true. Some things such as a smile can brighten one's day. My hubby is a pilot and is gone often so I enjoy hiding things in his suitcase. My mother lives in an apartment and I have fun leaving goodies in her fridge or on her dresser for her to find.

Here's a list of some items for you to leave in often over looked places for your honey or someone special to find.

For your honey:
1. Handcuffs.

2. A sexy photo of yourself.

3. A pair of panties scented with a favorite fragrance.

4. Small bottle of massage oil.

5. A key (to your heart).

6. A love poem.

7. A love letter.

8. Love coupons.For someone special:
9. A greeting or inspirational card.

10. A photo of the two of you.

11. A small book.

12. Favorite CD.

13 Favorite magazine.

Other items may include Hersey kisses, a teddy bear, jewelry, a list of why that person is special to you, small artwork, and a small bottle of their favorite fragrance.

What other items can you think of?

I haven't left a love letter in so very long. I'll have to do that this weekend when I emerge from the writing cave. Thanks for the reminder! :)

Happy TT,

Love notes...sigh

Savannah Chase said...

Love notes are always amazing...

Kimberly Menozzi said...

Lovely ideas. I think I should leave my hubby a note with his sandwich for his lunch tomorrow. :)

Happy TT!

I am Harriet said...

That would be too funny around here.

Have a great day!

I love food so I would say leave chocolates or a cool food item. You can get gourmet chocolate dipped fortune cookies and put your own fortune in them.

This is certainly something to think about. Seems like the only thing I leave on anyone's dresser is their cleaned laundry.

My husband went out of town and I slipped a love letter and a box of chocolates into his suitcase. He was very surprised and pleased when he found it!

Marianne Arkins said...

I leave little notes (and I mean little in size!) in strange places for my DH to find -- inside his deodorant cap, in between his t-shirts, in his wallet, inside his coffee container ... places I'm never sure when he'll look, but a nice little "I love you" when he's not expecting it.

Good post!

Heather said...

Some excellent suggestions, Mary. I used to leave little treats or cards for my mom.

(BTW, my word ver is "i melte" lol)

Rachael said...

When my husband used to travel 50% of the time, I made him a small photo book with pictures of us in it from throughout our relationship plus lyrics to some of our favorite songs and some of the inscriptions from cards I'd given him.

Nancy said...

i agree with Alice Audrey, it's really easy to get caught up in life. it only takes a minute to hide a picture somewhere for someone to find. Nice post.

Maddy Barone said...

What a cool idea!

Shelley Munro said...

My husband always says it with food - something special and unexpected.

Unknown said...

what about a new pair of undies? Nothing says love like, hey, look at that!

You know how "visual" men are ... ahem. Failing that, there's always beer.

What a fun list! I once did a "How Do I Love Thee, Let Me Count the Ways" journal in a tiny 2" x 1" book I found at a shop. I filled it with a bunch of things about my hubby and gave it to him.

He turned all pink 'n stuff. Aww.
