A romantic way to make your partner feel special is to write out a list of 100 (or more) “Reasons Why I Love You.”
If you want to make it even more of a romantic gift you could do a full list of “365 Reasons I Love You” as well…that way they could read one reason every day for a year!

Love is such a beautiful feeling, and we should share it with those around us; this includes your friends and family.
What a more thoughtful gift than to write out lists like these to give to your loved ones.
These lists can also be written as letters (so they know how you feel about them), poems (harnessing the power of rhyme), or even as notes (they will know you are thinking about them, but can only be found if they look for them).
You could do it old school with list of paper reasons in a “Reasons Why I Love You Jar” or you can create your own customized “Reasons I Love You” cards on the computer to give to them.
Or, if you want something more current (and less dusty) than the traditional paper lists, you can even text them each day with a new number, so they can look forward to receiving a text from you each day.
Start by writing out as many reasons as you can think of to let your person know the reasons why you love them.
