52 Reasons Why I Love You

deck of cards

So whether you and your loved one like to go all out on Valentine’s day, or keep it low-key, it’s

always nice to share a small handmade gift. There’s something about a gift from the heart that even Hallmark can’t compete with.

Last year I came across this deck of cards craft and decided to make one for my boyfriend. The version I found on Pinterest was much more elaborate and involved pictures and cutouts on every card. But as a college student overwhelmed with classes and internships, I decided to go for a more simplistic route.

Make It Personal

I still used a regular deck of playing cards and simply took a Sharpie and wrote a reason why I love my boyfriend on each card. Coming up with the 52 reasons was the fun part. I included everything from the typical “you always make me laugh” to personal inside jokes only he would understand.

Valentine's Deck of CardsI got semi-crafty and decorated the box to make it a little personal, but it was such a simple and sweet gift to put together. And the most important part was how much my boyfriend loved it! Seeing the smile on his face while he went through each card was truly priceless.

And the best part is, you two can pull out the cards whenever you want to play a friendly game of Go-Fish, and it will be a wonderful reminder of your love. I highly recommend this pinperfect gift for your valentine this year.

Reasons I love you

I LOVE YOU!

    It is really warm and sweet for you to share your personal experience and sincere feelings with us. That makes the readers feel highly involved in your blog. And I love the pink color in your photos and headlines. That fits so much with the Valentine day! To have a link to the original contents on Pinterest would make it better.

    I really like the idea of taking something as inexpensive as playing cards and turning them into something as priceless as this gift can be. I am a big fan of the thought-out and inside joke type gifts and this is a great example of that.

    I think you should continue to post gift ideas for all occasions, especially with Easter right around the corner. I am always interested in finding good gift ideas, especially on my college budget.
