My husband and I love to make each other handmade gifts, and one of my favorites I’ve made him is a DIY Valentine Love Jar. This is a sponsored post.
Our Love Story
After six years of marriage, I still feel butterflies and my heart skips a beat when I catch a glance of my husband. We met in a typical 21st-century fashion. We both had gotten out of bad marriages and tried the same dating website. I wrote a novel about who I was and what I loved and what I wanted in a partner. He found it and sent me YouTube videos of him performing songs he had written.
I remember having just come home from a bad first date when I received his first message. It was as if he was THE guy I had been dreaming about. I was cautiously optimistic. We started writing long emails back and forth every day. I loved coming home from work to find another email from him. (Even now, we both still have them saved in our email accounts.)
Within a week or so, we were talking on the phone and chatting online nearly every night after I put the kids to bed. He was such a breath of fresh air. We debated all kinds of things such as the meaning behind Shakespearean phrases and living life complexly.
Soon we had a date. It was actually a spur of the moment on a Saturday. He invited me up to his hometown which was about an hour away. My children were visiting their father, so I got in the car and went to meet him. It was amazing! Neither one of us wanted that night to end.
After a short while, I introduced him to my children and before we knew it, he fit perfectly in with us. My mom even loved him. Within six months we were married and had a baby on the way. Even now, we all forget he wasn’t there at the very beginning of our older kids’ lives. Our life is good, and I am so thankful I met this amazing man.
Finding time to be a couple can be difficult when you’re in the middle of life with kids. One way that helps me is to schedule a regular date night at least once a month. Whenever we go out just the two of us, it feels like those first few dates. It really helps us to connect and keep our romance going.
Intimacy is important to both of us. It keeps us connected and our marriage strong. I truly believe it is the glue that holds a marriage together. However, until the kids are asleep, I have a difficult time getting into that groove. One way that really helps to spice things up is a sensual massage.
Make a DIY Love Jar
My husband loves trying something new, so I thought this would be perfect to surprise him for Valentine’s Day.

First, you’ll want to print out all the printables.
Make sure to print them on regular paper and NOT cardstock. You’ll want to be able to roll them up or fold them up to put in the jar.
You can hide something adult and intimate in the middle of the jar like a bottle of one of KY’s new warming lubricants or a mini bottle of alcohol.
