Sample prompts:

If we’d first met in a comic strip, the thought bubble over my head would have said…
I adore this little daily ritual or habit we have…
One of your most irresistible physical features is…
I missed you when…

Playful, tender, and personal, What I Love About You makes a romantic gift for special occasions such as anniversaries, Valentine’s Day and birthdays, or just because the spirit moves you. It is equally good for couples in passionate love as well as those looking for ways to rekindle the sparks. Expressing love is always the answer.


Kate and David’s story of what it’s like to give and receive What I Love About You.



Reviewers Say:


My wife said this was the best gift she had ever been given in her life. I really liked how a lot of the questions made me have to really think outside the box and look at the important parts of our marriage more intentionally. Definitely recommend this!”


“This book expressed everything I’ve been feeling for the past 7 years with my significant other and I very, very highly recommend it. Of all the sentimental gifts I’ve given, this one got the biggest (positive) reaction, and is my absolute favorite.”


I’ve seen other couple journals that try to stir up trouble. Not this one. Even if you’re not feeling into it when you sit down to start writing in the book, the questions so gently and respectfully remind you of the good stuff in your relationship that matter most and all the things you’ve gone through together that you find yourself feeling really good.”


“I purchased this book as a gift for my husband. It helped me express romantic sentiments and memories, which was extremely helpful as I am not a mushy gushy kind of girl. It made me think about my love and our relationship in ways I hadn’t in a while.


His face as he was reading it was well worth every minute spent writing the answers.”
