Love on the Cheap

May 1, 2013

in the generous life

Good gifts don’t have to be expensive.

Mostly it’s about being a student of your husband and being thoughtful.

Buy his favorite soda or snack (doesn’t take much extra time, you just pick them up while you’re doing your usual shopping). You could make a bookmark for your reading husband. A download of a new song doesn’t cost that much. A small note of love or thanks is great for your “words of affirmation” guy. Cook up his favorite meal. A coupon for something he wants.

A little thought. A little time. A little gift. A lot of love.

May no gift be too small to give, nor too simple to receive, which is wrapped in thoughtfulness, and tied with love.  L.O. Baird

I subscribe to coupon alerts to our favorite restaurants and stores. When a good deal comes along, I like to surprise my husband with a inexpensive-to-free lunch date, drinks out, or special dessert.
