Valentine’s Day Idea #2

If you’re looking for an affordable gift, Count On Me has the perfect idea for you! Fill a mason jar with little notes of things you love about your significant other. This is a really simple, but incredibly thoughtful present. Make sure to not be too generic though; write things that are specific to him/her. For example, instead of saying “you’re really funny”, write down a little quirk about them that always makes you laugh. This shows that you’re really paying attention, and that you care for them. Really try to show your personality.

Supplies needed:

  • Mason Jar
  • Paper
  • Pen
  • Things to decorate the Jar (ribbons, stickers, etc..) .. Be creative!

Estimated price range: $0- $10.
