Reasons Why I Love You Book + Printables

Reasons Why I Love You Book

My husband and I don’t go all out for Valentine’s Day, but it’s still a holiday I love and so I try to make it special without expensive gifts and crowded dinner plans! In the past, I’ve done a fun VDay Balloon Gift, a thoughtful Dry Cleaning Gift that he LOVED,  and I’ve spiced it up a bit with this Sexier Gift idea (probably his favorite!) But this printable book idea is perfectly sentimental and super easy to make – and we have TWO variations + free printables for you today. Take a look –

What I Love About You Book

The first idea is called “The ABC’s of What I Love About You” and it’s all about the characteristics of your sweetheart that you LOVE! Here is how to make it:

Supplies Used To Make A What I Love About You Book

How To Make A What I Love About You Book

  1. Download and print the printables.
  2. Grab a pen and start writing down the fun characteristics you love for every letter of the alphabet.
  3. Optional – Look through alllllll your pictures and find some of your sweetheart that illustrate the qualities on your list. For example, the letter “E” in my book was “Encouraging.” I found a cute picture of my husband coaching my son at a baseball game. Glue the pictures to the book, either on the front or back, as space permits.
  4. Punch a hole into the top left corner of each card, then stack them up in ABC order.
  5. Slip your metal ring through the stack of cards and secure it so you have a little flip book!

…and that’s it!

SUPPLIES:

  • Pen or marker
  • Circle hole punch
  • Metal clasp ring
  • Pictures + glue stick, optional

DIRECTIONS:

  2. Grab a pen and start thinking of fun memories! For each letter of the alphabet included in the printable, you get to write a fun memory. For example, for the letter “F”, I decided to write about our “First House.” I had a lot of fun remembering and trying to come up with an idea for each letter.
  3. Optional – Find some pictures that illustrate the memories on your list. (A picture of your first house would be so cute!)
  4. Punch a hole into the top left corner of each card, then stack them up in ABC order.
  5. Slip your metal ring through the stack of cards and secure it so you have a little flip book!
