A fresh way for couples to say “I love you.”

 

This fill-in-the-blank book prompts you to say what is in your heart, but may not always be at the tip of your tongue. Tell the most important person in your life just how much they mean to you by completing the scores of unique, evocative checklists, short answers, and phrases in this attractive gift book:

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:

 

“I got this as a gift for my husband and he loved it! I will recommend this to anyone in a relationship!”

 

“I gave this to my wife for our first anniversary and she absolutely loves it! It made her cry, tears of joy of course!

 

“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.”

 

“Probably my favorite product from amazon all-together!…The way it’s written it encourages you to give a detailed, very personalized answer and it feels almost effortless to fill out!…I love that there are all types of questions (check off, fill in the blank, paste a picture, etc.).

 

“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.”

 

I sent it to him about halfway through his deployment. Saying that he loved the book was an understatement! He read it several times, and even showed it to a couple of his friends. When he would get sad, or miss me, he would read it, and smile at the funny pictures I drew and it would help him out a lot.”

 

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.”

 

It means a lot when someone takes the time to write things down since many handwritten activities have been replaced by electronic emails, text messages, etc. This is a wonderful gift to give someone who holds a special place in your heart.”

 

“I got this for my boyfriend of 4 years, and to say the least he is not the most sentimental guy. I got this gift to go along with a bigger gift, however he barely even cared about the bigger one when he got his hands on this. I was very surprised when he said it was his favorite present he ever recieved.

 

“I gave this to my husband last September for our 5th wedding anniversary and he loved it! To this day, he still likes to take it out and read it.”

 

“This year my husband will spend another birthday deployed out. Since this is our first deployment married, I had NO IDEA what to send him! After finding this book, I knew it would be perfect…a lonely night out in the desert can be comforted by kind words from the person you love.”

 

“This book was amazing! It prompted me in so many ways to be able to express my love to my fiancé. I had no idea of what to get him for our anniversary, and I found this. He loved it.”

 

“My wife is deployed and I am constantly looking for cool things to send her. This book hit the spot! This book helped ME by making me dig deep and put my thoughts into words for her. It helped HER because…well, it’s better than a dozen roses every week for the rest of her life.

 

“…He loved it :-) He read it all in one sitting and I even saw him laughing on a few pages.”

 

“This book is amazing because sometimes you don’t know how to express your love for your partner and this book makes it so easy. It is a great gift for any day of the year.”

 

“As a lack-luster communicator on the topic of emotions this book allowed me to loosen my proverbial lips and own every word. Give yourself plenty of time to pen your thoughts and dig up those memories. Not a last minute gift but guaranteed to be a gift that lasts. “
