50 Reasons Why I Love You

A Gift Idea that is Quick and Easy!

Years ago we held a contest to gather some ideas from our brilliant readers and this gift idea easily became the winning gift idea in the “Quick and Easy” category. Our reader, Sarah Zimmerman, came up with this amazing idea that was inexpensive and easy to put together. This gift idea gives you a unique way to share with the ones you love reasons why you love them AND it includes delicious treats! Perfect, right? Well, we have now added our own Diva flair to Sarah’s original idea and have gorgeous printables for you to make and personalize your own Reasons Why I Love You Jar for someone you love!

We are always looking for fun, unique and meaningful ways to show our spouses that we love them. What I love about this idea is how simple it is to put together. This could really be done in less than 15 minutes, but will be something they remember for a long time. And, with your choice of 3 different printable jar covers designed by our own Carisa from the site Messes to Memories, you can really personalize this gift idea to your own special occasion! Save this cute gift idea on Pinterest!

Quick and Easy Gift IdeaReasons I Love You Candy Gift

Using a 3/4″ garage sale sticker, write a reason why you love your spouse on each sticker. Place these stickers on some Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and fill a jar with all of the candies. {Reisens candies would be perfect too to match the “Reasons” why I love you!}

Isn’t that so cute? Every time your loved one reaches for a candy, they will be reminded why you love them! Your sweetie will get a sweet treat and a heart-felt message from you!

And it gets better! We have created three different printable download designs so that you can print and personalize your jar to your own situation! Save these printables on Pinterest!

We have 3 options for you:

  • 50 Reasons Why I Love You – This was the original idea from our contest winner.
  • Just a Few Reasons Why I Love – Numbers don’t matter, just fill the jar up.
  • # Reasons Why I Love You – This is the jar I am most excited about! Carisa has designed the printable to be editable! You can insert any number that you want! See ideas below . . .

Reasons I Love You Gift Jar

What I love most about this editable file, is how versatile the uses could be. Here are a few things you could do with this editable jar label when doing a gift idea for your spouse:

  • Anniversary Gift – Using the editable file you could do # of candies for how long you have been married. 30 years = 30 Reasons Why I Love You.
  • Birthday Gift – Match the # of chocolates/notes to their age. 35 years old = 35 Reasons Why I Love You
  • New Year’s Gift Idea – Wouldn’t it be neat to fill a giant jar with 365 Reasons Why I Love You and have them get a love note/eat one chocolate a day for a year!? Go ALL out!
  • Long Distance Idea – If your spouse is leaving for a time (like a deployment or work trip) you could do a chocolate for each day they are away. If they are away for a month, you could do 30 Reasons Why I Love You and have them take one a day while they are away.

AND . . . while we are brainstorming ideas, why stop at your spouse? This gift idea would be a great idea for anyone in your life that you love and appreciate: a mother, father, friend, child, grandchild, family member, neighbor, someone who needs to be cheered up–anyone really! So many possibilities! Who wouldn’t love something like this? Birthdays, anniversaries, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Just Because . . .

A GREAT gift idea that is inexpensive, thoughtful, personal, easy to put together, and yummy! What could be better? Let us know in the comments how you personalized this gift idea! We would love to hear!

  1. I think I might try this with some of those Chocolate Reisen treats. I wonder if the stickers would fit right on those. Thanks for a cute and simple idea!

    1. @Jes: I bet the stickers would have fit perfectly with the Chocolate Reisen treats, and if not, it wouldn’t be hard to tweek them to get them to fit! Glad you enjoyed the post.

  2. Doing this today for our anniversary on Sunday! It is our 23rd (how is that possible I ask you??!!) and I had nothing in mind. My hubs loves Reese’s too and I have some I bought after Valentine’s or Xmas that I can use. Might even have the price stickers too. Love that I can do this so quickly and easily.

    Thanks for an awesome idea!

    1. @Laura: I am so glad we gave you an idea for your Anniversary! I’m like you too and LOVE that you can put this together so fast! I hope things went well.
