It was not only a really cool gift, but it took a lot of effort on his part and of course his thoughtfulness really touched me. He’s not one to always express the way he feels, so this really got me good. I was crying in his arms like a baby. And I still get misty-eyed to this day whenever I watch it.” -J. N.
  21. “First was a bottle of sand. You may think, sand in a bottle? Romantic? But it was. She had gathered it from the beach around the pond where we went on our first date. I was about 1200 miles from her when I got it, just made me miss her more. Second, still 1200 miles away from her. She bought a shirt for me, sprayed it with her perfume and sent it to me.

Using label stickers and small rectangle-shaped pink note cards, my boyfriend typed on each one reason why he loves me.

  46. “My husband sent me a Valentine’s present when I was at college. It came in a long red box with silk flowers and a white organza ribbon tying it all together. I was pleased to get something, but disappointed that I would find long stemmed red roses inside. So cliché, I thought. Imagine my surprise to find 12 long stemmed chocolate chip cookies (my favorite) in the box! It was wonderful! No one had ever seen anything like it before.
