Every so often, you meet a special someone who compels you to put pen to paper (or fingertips to keyboard) in an attempt to let them know how you truly feel. This week, we’re giving some tips on how to write a love letter specifically for him and for her, but today we’re going to focus on delivering the letter itself.
While your words can be read and re-read over and over again as a cherished keepsake, you’ve got just one chance to deliver a love letter to your sweetheart.Here are a couple love letter delivery suggestions to make the act of giving the written contents of your heart a beautiful and memorable experience.
A Sweet Surprise. If you happen to live with the person you plan on giving a love letter to, there are some cute, creative ways to surprise them with it. If your loved one takes his or her lunch to work, sneak a love letter in next to their sandwich or fruit. (Hint: You may want to seal your letter in its own little plastic baggie to avoid getting any stains or food odors on it in case something spills!) Is your special someone an avid reader? Slip your love letter into the pages of the book they’re currently reading in lieu of a bookmark. Get creative with the ways you can offer a surprise delivery.
Enlist Your Four-Legged Friends for Help. Is your special someone an animal lover? Think about asking them to accompany you and Fido to the dog park to get in some playtime If there’s an enclosed area to let your pet romp freely, secretly attach your love letter to your pooch’s collar and throw a stick for Fido to retrieve. When he comes bounding back, direct your dog to your special girl or guy to deliver your love letter to them.
Send a Long Distance Message in a Bottle. If you’re involved in a long-distance relationship, it can be difficult not being able to be with your guy or girl as often as you’d like. Sending a thoughtful care package can be a wonderful romantic gesture. Instead of simply mailing your love letter as-is, you can plan a grand love letter delivery by placing your note in a beautiful bottle (picked up from a craft store or even a yard sale) and stashing your note inside. Wrap your bottle in bubble wrap and mail it in a box. They’ll never expect to find a message in a bottle inside of a much larger box. Good things can come in bigger packages!
A Scavenger Hunt for Your Sweetheart. Who says you can’t make ‘em work for it just a little bit? Design a fun scavenger hunt to guide your special someone to your letter. Your scavenger hunt can be as simple or as outrageous as you like. If you’d like to keep it simple, leave a trail of rose petals leading to your letter. For a more adventurous scavenger hunt, leave little rhyming clues around the house to guide them to the next clue until they eventually find your letter. Keep the clues simple and use them as an opportunity to create more excitement around eventually finding the note as a sweet reward.
In person. While creative ways to deliver a love letter are always wonderful, thoughtful, and appreciated, there is something truly special about handing your words (and heart) to someone in-person and seeing the look on their face as they read it.
