    1. Hi Kristin! I’m so sorry you’re having trouble with printing this! Unfortunately, we only have pdf printables. The only other thing I can recommend is to try clearing your cache, turning off your printer/computer, and then starting all over again. Good luck!!

  6. This is so cute! I was thinking of doing something like this do I was reading through and how CRAZY that as I was reading I got to the part where it says, ” I put the letter in for Brent” that is my husbands name! I feel like this idea is meant to be now and I really should do it! I feel like it’s a sign, it’s a great idea and I’m sure it was very meaningful to your Vrent as it would also be very meaningful for my Brent!

  7. I did this just last week for my husband on our date night. I did not write a huge list like that, I went to the store looking for things that he likes, like simple stuff that makes him smile, and came up with little reasons i love him to reference the item i got. Like I got a stained glass lightbulb, and told him how he has shown me the colors of the world with his love, some star wars stuff because i love my nerd, and we are a young couple (both in our early 20s) so I got him a Pikachu toy, and told him how no matter what i choose him. (though it said i choose you on the gift) He loved the reasons why i love him more than what i got him lol it was a great start to a awesome date night. Thank you guys!!!!

  8. Thanks so much for this great idea!!! I am having my 5th baby any day now and my husband and I are celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary next Monday. I have been wanting to do something for my hubby for our anniversary, but couldn’t think of what to do so far in advance. This is great! I can get it ready now and give it to him on our anniversary….even if I’m in the hospital! Thanks so much for the idea!

  9. Love this idea. I found this through Pinterest and used it to create a gift basket for my mom’s birthday! Thanks for the inspiration. I will be blogging about it Friday Sept 14th if you’d like to check it out.

  10. I found this website viz pinterest and when I found this idea I was ecstatic! My boyfriend has been away in Afghanistan for 7 months and will be returning very soon. While he was gone I was making a “reasons why I love you” list and after seeing this I’ll be able to make a nice welcome home basket in combination to the list. I had been pondering what to do with the list for months! Can’t wait to see his reaction to it!

  11. I made this for my husband on Valentines Day and he loved it!

    Here are few things I put on my list

This has my wheels turning!
