I've done something like this several times in the past, but because Tony and I won't be together for Valentine's Day this year (sigh of self-pity), I wanted to do it again this year so that he had a little something to open each day of the 14 days leading up to Valentine's Day. The trick was finding 14 NEW things to send, but also making them something that he could use or that he could enjoy while he is deployed or share with his office. So this is what I came up with:
Day 1: I "chews" you for my Valentine. (big 12 pack box of gum)
Day 2: I'm stuck on you. (a sheet of heart stickers)
Day 3: I love to "tissue"...get it? Kiss you? Okay, work with me here... (mini tissue box)
Day 4: You make my world go 'round. (a package of his favorite round cookies)
Day 5: You knock my socks off! (a pair of new socks)
Day 6: You're my King of Hearts! (new pack of playing cards)
Day 7: You've been hugged. (bag of chocolate Hugs candies)
Day 8: You're hot. (a box of Hot Tamales)
Day 9: Your love hits the right note with me. (notepad)
Day 10: Our love is better than any Hollywood story. (box of New Moon candy)
Day 11: You've been kissed. (bag of chocolate Kiss candies)
Day 12: 'Nuff said. (I found the ugliest foil wrapped chocolate fish that said "You're a Keeper" on it. It was so bizarre that it was perfect.)
Day 13: I've got you under my skin. (favorite aftershave OR you can take the "under" part and run with it...:-) I'm just sayin'...
Day 14: Happy Valentine's Day! (you're on your own for this one!)
I wrapped each gift individually with the tag inside. Then I wet embossed a number on 14 tags with silver powder and attached them to each gift. I found some of the coolest silver tokens for "time gifts" (hugs, kisses, massages, etc.) and got 5 different ones and attached them to each of the bagged items as well as the final gift. And the best part is that they fit comfortably in large flat rate box.
It's on it's way!!
