DIY Romantic Gift: Love Jar
Pack all Your Love in a Jar
Have you ever thought that all the love you feel for your partner can fit in a jar? Metaphorically speaking, this is entirely possible.
Moreover, you can prepare this jar of love yourself. This means that while remaining on a budget, you will have the most thoughtful gift for your loved one. There are many forms your love jar can take.
The only things that matter are to be creative and to tailor your present according to the receiver's personality, hobbies and style. This way he/she will feel you did something especially for him/her, and did not just reuse the same stereotypical ideas of romantic gifts.

Do It Yourself!
While this is an elegant and stress free idea, a gift made with your own two hands would say much more than a ready-made one. There is no way your partner will not appreciate the efforts you made.
It's not as difficult as you might think. Just take a transparent glass jar. Half-fill it with red confetti. Or, even better, make the confetti yourself. The heart shaped red ones work better for a romantic gift. Grab a heart patterned hole punch, a few sheet of red paper, and here you are! Half of the job is already done. Alternatively, you can use different colors of paper. It's up to you!
Now get to the notes. You can look for some heart patterned cards, but the white ones work, too. Their simplicity stands for sincerity and purity. Moreover, you don't run the risk of overdoing it. Alternatively, you can adorn the notes yourself if you are good at drawing. Take a pen and write some sweet messages. Don't simply right "I love you" on all the notes. Actually, it's best you write a different message on each one. Your partner will have then to open all of them to see what's inside. Another note, another surprise. You don't have to worry about the envelopes. You can fold the notes in two or four before sliding them inside the jar. The suspense will appear while unfolding.
What you need:
- a transparent glass jar;
- red paper (for the confetti);
- a heart shaped hole punch;
- white notes (for the messages);
- a pen.

Love Coupons for Your Jar
You don't have inspiration for so many love messages? How about filling your love jar with coupons?
The idea of offering coupons as gifts has been used for a while. I personally don't like it, especially when the present is for a close friend, or even worse for your spouse. I think that on such special occasions as Valentine's Day, your partner's birthday or your anniversary as a couple you need a more personalized gift than a simple voucher. It's not about money. It's all about the message you send.
These books do not contain vouchers you can use in a store. They are a collection of humorous and romantic notes your partner can use later when he/she wants a kiss, a hug, to cuddle for a while, or to make love to you. Go through the book and cut out only the coupons you feel comfortable with. You can also write some of your own after you got inspired.
