Homemade coupons

One free hug
one free whole house vacuumed
one free room cleaned (a coupon for each room – yours, living room, bathroom)
one free load of laundry (folded and put a way)
one free batch of cookies
One free movie night – her choice
Breakfast in bed

Make a laminated (or non-laminated) bookmark: find pictures of the two of you or pictures she would like out of a magazine or inspiring words- it can be a few small pics or just one. Cut the construction paper to the size you want and start gluing the pictures on, then take it to Staples/Office Max, Office Depot or a store like that and get it laminated, then cut it. After hole-punch the top and put a ribbon or twine of some kind through the hole and tie it in a knot. You can even skip laminating it.

Make a ‘love jar’ and fill it with origami hearts, flowers and slips of paper with notes of appreciation written on them or ‘I love you’ written in different languages (on the back write which language it is).

Robert asks…

What could be a good gift for boyfriend of 10 months for xmas?

I’ve been with a guy for 10 months, but I still don’t know what to get him for Christmas..since it’s our first Christmas together. He is very romantic and very affectionate, enjoys basketball and playing a few video games, but would rather spend time with me. He is very adventurous and has a strong faith in God. Any suggestions for what I could get him??

David asks…

Can anyone tell me what the day in a life of a NAVY Seal wife is?

I have reason to believe I will become one in the very near future. I accidently posted this without the wife part. sorry.

LoveKnots answers:

Same as any other military wife; finding something to keep you occupied while he’s deployed and worrying about him while he’s gone.

There’s a reason why they say Navy wife is the hardest job in the Navy.

The Navy Wife

A Navy Wife is no ordinary woman. Operating for months at a time without the companionship or assistance of her husband, she routinely overcomes challenges that would give the average person a nervous breakdown.

Part Doctor, part Teacher and part Handyman, she can lavish loving care on a sick toddler, help a teenager with his Algebra homework, and track down a faulty circuit breaker — all while holding down a full time job.

With thirty minutes notice, she can serve breakfast, lunch, or dinner to fourteen hungry Sailors, and still somehow balance her family’s meager grocery budget.

She can press a set of dress whites to inspection standards, tie a perfect square knot in a military neckerchief, and pack a seabag in the cold hours before dawn.

For months at a time, she must settle for letters instead of kisses, emails in place of hugs, and long-distance phone calls in lieu of her husband’s touch.

She manages a smile when her Sailor is at sea for the second Anniversary in a row, and accepts the fact that there’s a one-in-three chance that he will have to stand Duty on her Birthday. She has learned to stand on a pier and wave goodbye without tears, even when her heart is breaking.

To her children, she is Chauffeur, Umpire, Psychologist, Spiritual Advisor, Financial Consultant, part-time Father, Tooth Fairy, Santa Clause, and the Easter Bunny. To her husband, she is Friend, Lover, Partner, Confidant, and Soul-Mate.

She is a patriot. She is the sort of citizen that all of us should be, but so few of us are. She lives with sacrifice, because she believes in the rights and ideals that her husband defends. Although she wears no uniform, she is a part of that defense — a vital link in the chain of Freedom. Although she wears no medals and will reap no glory on the field of battle, she is a hero in the truest sense of the word.

She is a Navy Wife.

Maria asks…

what christmas present can you get the guy who has everything?

He’s my best friend. He got me a warm up microwaveable teddy bear, so that I’d be warm when he goes home for christmas and some headphones (because he knew that I needed some)

He leaves for a month in 2 days. I wanna get him something meaningful – rather than the ‘usual’ any ideas?

Thanks (: x

Make a laminated bookmark: find pictures or photos that he would like – animals, sports, cars, pictures of you two – it can be a few small pics or just one, glue it to construction paper, make sure you know how wide you want it to be before you start with the glue, then take it to Staples/Office Max, Office Depot or a store like that and get it laminated, then cut it. After hole-punch the top and put a ribbon or twine of some kind through the hole and tie it in a knot.
