I’m about to be a mom of 2, and while my daughter and this pregnancy claim most my time and energy I still have a really awesome hubby (who I totally adore ♥) that deserves some attention too. As the years go by and the kids multiply, I still want to keep a little part of our honeymoon spark alive but realistically I don’t have as much time as I used to, so here are 8 easy ways ways I plan to surprise my man over the next few days. I hope you’ll use a few to surprise your husband too!

1. Create a sticky note heart with all the reasons that you love him.
Idea from Life Lives Here.
2. Make an adorable DIY card: “Today I Have Loved You For ___ Days”
Get out your calculator and add up the days, then swing by Something Turquoise to print out her free printable card.
3. Buy the Ebook 175 Best Date Ideas and choose a favorite for tonight. Plan out the entire night and then just tell him what he needs to know as you go!
4. Slip a love note inside a balloon.
Love this idea from the Thinking Closet, I especially love the finishing touch of “Pop Me” on the outside of the balloon!
5. Draw a game board on your sheets.
Bring the romance and fun back into the bedroom! Check out how to draw the game board pattern and get started with a few ideas from Design Dining Diapers.

6. Make a date jar.
Surprise him with the homemade date jar but leave few blank sheets in case he wants to add his ideas to the jar too!
7. Bake a batch of cookies.
We all know food is one of the fastest ways to a man’s heart, he’ll love these tic-tac-toe cookies that are both delicious and super fun!
8. “Spam” His Phone with sweet texts.
And a selfie blowing him a kiss too!
And… Mail a love letter with a stamp to his work.
Not quite free but I’m pretty sure you can find 49 cents in your couch if you need!
