My boyfriend and I had only been dating a short while before Valentine’s Day, so I didn’t really want to get something super expensive. I just wanted to do something little and meaningful.
He plays guitar, so I went out and bought 12 guitar picks (red, white, and black, his favorite colors and white added in for Valentine’s day). I took scissors and trimmed them into heart shapes. This takes a while to do and some strength with the scissors, but it works. Then I filed down the edges and put them all in a little clear bag tied with a ribbon.
I made a card and I picked out candy hearts with the messages I liked on them. When we were exchanging our gifts on Valentine’s Day, I gave him the picks and he loved them, and then I gave him one candy heart at a time and told him he had to do everything they said on them. Things like „Hold me” „Hug me” and „Kiss me.”
He loved the whole thing and I’ve told all my friends the story and they thought it was the best Valentine’s story ever.
