If you are searching for some creative ones, here you come the right place.

Part 1


Love Coupons: Love coupons/ vouchers/certificate was the ‘just because’ gift suggested by the most people, including Maria Jade Wong, who recommended vouchers for massages, cooking his favorite meal, etc.

Candlelight is Always Right. “I made a surprise candlelight dinner for my husband a couple of weeks ago. I had everything set up & ready right after giving the kids dinner & putting them to bed early. I even made a music playlist with songs that he & I had dedicated to each other. It was nice. He loved it!” 

Best Husband Certificate: “Make him a “best husband” certificate.  When he asks you why, just say ‘because you are‘.  Frame it and hang it in your bedroom.” 

The Sneaky Bird Gets the Worm. “My ‘just because’ gift is always sneaking into his car before he wakes up and leaving a bar of his favorite chocolate with a love letter on his dashboard to remind him how much I love him.  It always puts a smile on his face driving to work and a great way to start his day.”

Message in a Balloon: Forget sending a message in a bottle. This is SO much cooler than that!

Card for No Reason. “When I come across beautiful cards I pick them up and send him one when he least expects it. Put a post it note in his shirt pocket that says I’m proud of you.” 

Passport to Love:  What a clever gift!  Use this DIY crafts project to take your husband around the world for free.

Deal Worth Waiting For. “I put aside some great family pictures and photos of the kids along with a letter from me and thoughts from the kids.  Then I waited (not long) for a photo book special and voila a touching memory book for him!  There are always free or cheap photo book offers and you can have text and photos.” 

Hot Tamale! “My hubby LOVES Hot Tamales.  If yours does too, here’s an idea.  Buy a bag or box of Hot Tamales or his favorite cinnamon candy and print out a cute note that says, “These are the perfect candy for you…Because you’re both so sweet and HOT!!”

52 Things I Love About You: “For Valentine’s Day two years back I took index cards and wrote 52 things/ reason why I love my husband and then I glued them to a deck of cards.”

A Special Homemade Lunch. “I make my husband’s lunch every day. Today, I put a note in a zip lock baggie that said: ‘You bring color into my life.’  I added a handful of skittles in the bag with the note.”

Floating Memories: “Balloon bouquet with balloons with hearts and that say I love you. My husband loves those!” 

One of a Kind Gift. “Write him a poem. It comes from the heart & will be one of a kind!!!” 

Treasure Chest of Love. “Candy works well-especially with a cute note attached. For instance: A bag or container (I used a small wooden treasure chest from the hobby shop) of Hershey’s Treasures. They look like miniature gold bricks. I put a note saying: Thanks for being such a treasure!” 

‘Why I Love You’ Jar: “I bought a cute jar with a lid, decorated it and cut out strips of colored paper and wrote on each piece all the things I love about him. It was so heartfelt and he loved it! Took more time than money. You can also do it with stickers on candy."
