52 reasons why I love you – Gift Idea

This handmade gift idea is such a lovely thing to make for any friend, partner or family member.

I made this gift for my husband. I thought of 52 reasons why I love him and listed each one in this handmade gift. To be honest I think I probably appreciated this gift more than he did! (He’s not a handmade gift kinda guy shall we say!)

You’ll need:

  • Personalised deck of playing cards
  • Thick card
  • Decorative paper
  • Alphabet stickers
  • Coloured string
  • Hole puncher
  • Sharpie marker

I ordered a pack of playing cards which I had personalised with a photo of the two of us. (You can type into google “personalised playing cards” and there are many online retailers to choose from)

Once the pack arrived, I designed two playing card sized covers, one for the front and back. I used thicker card for this.

I decorated the front with alphabet stickers – that said “52 reasons why I love you”.

I then hole punched everything and thread coloured string through each playing car to create a mini book.

Then with a marker pen I wrote a reason on each card. I gotta admit some of the reasons did stretch my imagination! But call it a test to your relationship! Can you name 52 reasons for your loved one?
