12 Random Declarations of Love for Your Spouse… Just Because!

You don’t need an occasion to show your significant other how you feel! Surprise him or her by doing something on our list. When they ask why, you can answer, “Just Because!”

  1. 12 Random Declarations of Love for Your Spouse... Just Because!Leave them a handwritten love note. Technology makes it so easy to send a love note via email, but it just doesn’t have the same sentiment as a handwritten note. Leave it on the kitchen counter, their side of the bed, on the bathroom mirror… somewhere they will be sure to see it.
  2. Bring on the compliments! Everyone loves to hear how wonderful they are. And although we can never underestimate the romantic touch of a handwritten note, texting has its perks too. At the beginning of the day, text your sweetie: “20 Reasons why I love you!” Then, send them 20 texts throughout the day complimenting all their best qualities.
  3. Spoil them for a day. Forget about cooking, cleaning, and chores. Let your spouse kick their feet up and relax! Can’t decide on what to watch on TV? Let them choose! Wondering what’s for dinner? Serve their favorite meal!
  4. Give them a massage! Everyone loves getting a massage. So, break out the lotion and scented candles, dim the lights, and let your significant other enjoy this treat!
  5. Go pick up their favorite meal from their favorite restaurant… to go. They say the way to a man’s heart is through their stomach… and the same is true for women! Let them come home to their favorite meal, and we guarantee a smile on their face.
  6. Create a romantic playlist on their computer with songs that remind you of them. Music can be very romantic, and every couple has songs that remind them of each other. For an extra touch of romance, slow dance together.
  7. Serve them breakfast in bed! Who doesn’t LOVE breakfast in bed? It is a great way to put a smile on your spouse’s face as soon as they start their day!
  8. Plan a surprise mini-vaca: A romantic getaway is always a hit! And a little vacation alone together is always good for a relationship.
  9. Write them a poem. It sounds cheesy, but it’s sweet! Even if it’s just a few lines, poems are a romantic and cute way to express your love. And you never know, you may find out you’re a poet and didn’t know it! 🙂
  10. Collect the best pictures of the two of you. Whether you put them in an album, turn them into a scrapbook, or just display them on the coffee table, this is a sweet gesture that will take you on a walk down memory lane together!
  11. Plan a date night. It sounds simple, but it means a lot. Taking the time to plan a night with your spouse is an important declaration of your love. Extra points if it’s a surprise!
  12. Buy them a “Just Because” gift. We usually only send presents on holidays, but what better reason than to declare your love? Wow your spouse with an awesome gift like an I Love You Rose, or Paper Roses with a custom message or photos.

Our busy lives often don’t leave room for affirmations of love; we set aside days like anniversaries and Valentine’s Day for those things. But it is important to show your spouse how much you love them… Just Because.

How to Plan a Memorable Valentine’s Day with your Sweetheart

jpr-5stepsLooking for ideas to plan a romantic Valentine’s Day for your special someone? Here is our guide to make this a day they’ll never forget!

Step 1: Dress the part.
Taking the time to look nice for your sweetheart is an important gesture. It show them you care, and it sets the mood for a romantic night.

Step 2: Choose a romantic location.
Whether you are staying in or going out, romance should be in the air! If you are at home, dim the lights, light some candles, and put on some mood music. If you go out, choose a quiet, romantic place where you can focus on each other.

Step 3: Find a memorable gift.
No Valentine’s Day is complete without a special gift to show your significant other how much they mean to you. Whether you choose a classic bouquet of flowers, a cute and cuddly teddy bear, or another romantic gift, take the time to find something your sweetheart will love.

Step 4: Remove all distractions.
Eliminate anything that will interrupt your romantic night together. If you must keep your cell phone on, make sure you put it on silent. Don’t make your date feel like they are competing for your attention. Be 100% focused on them.

Step 5: Seal the deal.
Don’t forget to end the night with a passionate kiss! (Or maybe more… if you are lucky!)

4th, 5th, and 6th Traditional Anniversary Gifts by Year

4th-6thLooking for traditional anniversary gifts for your 1st, 2nd or 3rd anniversary? Check out the first article in our series.

Do you have a wedding anniversary coming up? Trying to find meaningful and creative gifts for your spouse year after year can prove to be a difficult task. But it doesn’t have to be! Rely on the traditional anniversary gifts for each year, and we’ve got you covered.

4th Wedding Anniversary Gift: Fruit

Fruit is the perfect symbol for marriage. Just like the flowering plants that grow fruit, your relationship with your spouse needs to be cared for and nurtured. By the 4th year of marriage, you have been through quite a bit together. You have gotten to know each from the inside out and have created something beautiful and sweet. This is the year you truly begin to enjoy the “fruits” of your labor.

Traditionally, fruit and flowers are given on the 4th wedding anniversary. What more perfect combination than our JustFruitRoses? You can choose a set of 4 stem paper roses to represent your 4th year anniversary, or you can go all the way with 12 beautiful long stem roses.

5th Wedding Anniversary Gift: Wood

A married couple is no longer considered “newlyweds” in the fifth year of marriage. The traditional wedding gift idea for this year anniversary is wood because it represents strength and solidity. After 5 years, your relationship has stood the test of time and is stronger than ever.

We have a variety of wooden rose options including our JustWoodRoses, lifelike wood roses, our handcarved Bloodwood Rose, or an endearing teddy bear holding a single wooden rose.

If your spouse is a baseball fan, he/she will love our home run baseball gift. It has a romantic imprint that reads, “You Hit a Home Run with Me!” and comes with a wooden display base.

6th Wedding Anniversary Gift: Candy

Candy represents the sweetness of love within a marriage. And after six happy years, don’t you and your spouse deserve a treat!?

A traditional box of candy is a good gesture, but imagine your loved one’s expression when he/she receives our JustCandyRoses made from old-fashioned strips of button candy. In addition, we also have a cute and cuddly 6th anniversary anniversary bear that comes with a single JustCandyRose.

Every year of a couple’s wedding anniversary has special meaning. For more anniversary gift ideas, visit our website!

1st, 2nd, and 3rd Traditional Anniversary Gifts by Year!

1st-3rdAt the beginning of your marriage, you may not know the appropriate gift to give your spouse on your anniversary or what those traditional gifts mean. Well, here is our list of traditional anniversary gifts by the year to help guide you!

1st Year Anniversary Gift: Paper
Paper symbolizes strength because of the interwoven connection of the paper’s threads. This traditional gift may seem to limit your options at first… but if you think about it, there are so many wonderful ideas for paper anniversary gifts! (And we aren’t just talking about a card!)

If you’re looking for a gift that is truly memorable and unique, JustPaperRoses has hand-made paper roses, such as our beautiful long stemmed red roses. Unlike regular roses that begin to wilt after the first couple of days, paper roses will never die. They are truly a gift that lasts a lifetime!

Some of the best anniversary gifts are more about the thought and experience behind the gift than the gift itself. For example, you could plan a special picnic lunch with your sweetheart using paper plates and napkins! Check out our 1st anniversary picnic set!

2nd Year Anniversary Gift: Cotton
Cotton is known for being a very flexible and resilient fabric.  In marriage, cotton material symbolizes a need for a couple to remain strong and adapt to changes. It is also associated with comfort and durability. In your second year, you feel more comfortable with your partner and are stronger than ever before!

There are so many wonderful gift ideas made from cotton. Of course, our “JustCottonRoses” are a wonderful, unique gift for any couple. We have romantic flower gifts for almost every anniversary.

Another romantic gift idea is a cotton-stuffed teddy bear. Our take on this classic gift is truly special, with the teddy bear wearing a “Happy Cotton Anniversary” shirt and the added bonus of a cotton rose in hand!

For those looking for a humorous gift, check out our 100% cotton t-shirt with the phrase, “We just celebrated our 2nd “Cotton” Anniversary, and all I got was this T-Shirt!”

3rd Year Anniversary Gift: Leather
Leather is soft to touch, durable and long-lasting.  Experts say that the 3rd year in marriage is the year of enduring strength, which leather symbolizes beautifully! After you’ve reached the 3rd year milestone, you know you’ve successfully passed the first big hurdle of marriage.

Our classic gift for the 3rd anniversary is our JustLeatherRoses. What could be more traditional and romantic? We have 1, 3, 6, and 12 stem options with a variety of color choices!

Another one-of-a-kind gift is our leather baseball on a wooden display, perfect for sports fans. What a great way to show your spouse that they “hit a home run” when they met you!
