One of our sweet readers, Beckie, sent us this super fun and easy idea that will work perfectly for ANY day of the week! We know you have plenty of “Riesens” you love your spouse…so why not whip this little ditty up and give it him or her…just because!?

{Yeppers….Valentine’s Day has come & gone, but we still need to show the love!}

Here are the materials you will need:

  1. Bag of Riesens Chocolate Candies
  2. Colored cardstock or paper
  3. “Riesens” Printable
  4. Tape or Heart Brads
  5. Something to put all your candies in

Take a bag of the Riesen candies and attached to each wrapper is a slip of paper with something special written on it. You can write about things you like about your spouse, favorite memories, inside jokes, fun little coupons for messages or a date night, etc. If you are truly in a hurry, you can use the printout of “Riesens” that I did for my husband.

Here is what Beckie said about her “Riesens”: “At first I wondered if I could be creative enough to come up with enough different things to write. It seemed like there were a lot of chocolates to fill, but I soon realized that there were so many reasons I love my husband that I would run out of chocolates long before reasons. It worked so well that even though it was over 7 years ago, my husband still talks about it.”

Awe! Isn’t that just too cute!? Thanks so much Beckie for sharing this wonderful idea with all of us!

  1. My husband is the rugged outdoor type. I usually don’t make him things like this because he thinks anything made of paper is “girly” and “geeky”. However when I saw this I thought I may be able to sneak it in. I filled a hunting supply pouch with my reisen’s that I printed on camouflage paper. He actually loved it! Thanks for an idea I could adapt to our rustic way of life.

    1. Ooh, great idea Erica!! Love the camouflage too! It is a bit more beef-caky for such a girlie idea, My gosh, different colored paper could really make this idea work for any person and any occassion! Thanks girl!
