What was IN the Open When gifts and letters?

She said:

It was mostly love notes and photos of me/us/him I got printed at Walgreens, but here were some of my favs:

Open for a good memory: Photos from a beach trip with shells

Open for lots of good memories: A map of the US with all the places we’ve been together

Open when you’re missing me: Photos of me

Open when you’re missing us: Photos of us

Open to awake your inner child: Mini origami kit

Open when you’re feeling clever: Wooden brain teaser puzzle

Open when you’re having a bad day: Photos of me, anti-stress lotion, and tissues with inspirational quotes

Open when you’re sick of the distance: Southwest gift card

Open for a sweet treat: Fancy chocolate bar

Open for a home cooked meal: Soup kit from world market

Open when you really really really miss me: Stuffed puppy plush I sprayed with my perfume and attached some photos of me

Open on Valentine’s day: A book of all the things I love about him

Open on our anniversary: Mini bottle of champagne

Open for a good memory: Sound maker from our New Years together

Open when you’re cooking Mexican food: A set of nice salsas

Super cute and THOUGHTFUL, right? I bet that took a LOT of time, but was really appreciated!

Oh, and she wax sealed all of the love letters with her initials – nice touch!

Someone asked what was INSIDE the ‘Open When I’m Mad At YOU’ and ‘Open When You’re Mad At ME’ letters (and I was super curious too!)

She said:

“Love letters that mostly remind him that we are both human and fighting is normal. Remind him that we love each other and can get through anything.

For when “I’m mad at you” I write that he should tell me he loves me and he is sorry. And I apologize in “you’re mad at me”, and write that I’m probably being a hardhead about whatever the fight is and I’m sorry. And I included some good photos of us in each”

So sweet and such a great idea to add to a stack of Open When letters!
