A Fun Way to Show Him You Love Him: Create a Love Letter Scavenger Hunt

Last week I shared 7 ways to verbally affirm our husbands plus 3 words of caution. 

This week, as part of the "Be My Valentine Challenge" at Women Living Well, we are being creative in our praise.

Let me warn you, I am NOT creative, which is why I have no fashion sense or find it hard to be resourceful. I'm all about practical and useful, but creative I am not nor will I ever be. Fortunately, my husband isn't so interested in my creativity and likely neither is yours if you find yourself in the same boat.

So, here's my very simple attempt to show love to my husband in a non-traditional way:

Create a daily scavenger hunt with love notes for each day of the week!

So, while cutting out construction paper hearts with my daughter, I made a few extras for Daddy. 

Then, I added a simple but sweet message to each one and folded it in half.


Need some ideas?
  • I love how you have a heart for your family.
  • I love that you help me clean up the kitchen at night. 
  • I love your fun-loving nature; it sure makes life more interesting!
  • I love how you calm me down when I'm frustrated & overwhelmed.
  • I love how generous you are with your time, money, & energy. 
  • I love how affectionate you are with the girls and me.
  • I love how cute you are. You still make me melt.
  • I love your cheesy sense of humor. 
  • I love how you're a hard worker.
  • I love how you drop everything for me.
Now, each day, I will put one heart in a different location, kind of like a grown-up scavenger hunt. {He's a big kid, so I think he'll like it.}

I will let you know how this turns out!

Do you struggle with being creative?  
What creative ways have you found to show your husband you love him? 

I'm praying God's richest blessings for you this week!

  3. Hi Keri,
    Thank you for stopping by to visit me today! I love this idea of the love letter scavenger hunt! So all the little pink hearts--easy to just stick in his pocket!

    1. Thanks, Mary! Yes, I stuck one in his wallet this morning, but I guess he hasn't found it yet because he hasn't called. Guess that's a good thing, though, because he isn't spending money! :)


  4. Hello Keri, I just found your blog and am enjoying looking around! I am not creative either and therefore will be stealing this idea to use on my hubby lol, thanks for sharing, should be fun :) Also, I just added your blog to my blog's directory, so stop by for the button if you'd like!(
