The Love Jar

This is simple.  You will need:

  • An empty jar, like from spaghetti sauce or pickles with the top
  • Printer paper and ink
  • Avery labels, optional (for jar)
  • Ribbon, optional
  • Scissors
  • Creativity


Make a list of 365 love related items.  These can be things you love about your mate, favorite love quotes, and promises.  You can use Bible verses, create small coupons, whatever you like, just make sure there is one for every day of the year (so 366 in a leap year). Here are some examples:

  • I love the way you look when you are asleep
  • I appreciate how hard you work to support our family
  • You have the most beautiful face I have ever seen

Print out the lists and cut each phrase into a separate piece of paper. You can make this really pretty by using pink and red or red and white printer papers. Place the strips in the jar and make a label for it that says something like “The Love Jar”. Put a cover on it and tie a ribbon or raffia around it. The instructions should tell them to take ONE slip of paper out of the jar every day.
