FOR YOUR LITTLE LOVES:
I’m a huge believer in a sweet little box of chocolates for your little loves. My dad used to always bring us home our own special box of heart-shaped chocolates each year growing up. It always made me feel so special and loved. All kids will love it too!
You also can never go wrong with a sweet, personalized letter to show someone how much you love them. Sure, you can always tell someone to their face, but there is something about having it written on paper that makes it so special. That way you can look back and read it year after year. It’s a love letter you can always take with you. You could even personalize it by drawing or making your own from scratch. Or, if you’re not feeling creative, you could always purchase some beautiful stationary. So, a nice little note is never overrated or will go overlooked. It’s just as special a way to share your feelings and tell someone how much you love them.
