Searching for a sweet Valentine’s Day gift that won’t break the bank? This year, skip the chocolates and teddy bear, and show your beau just how much they mean to you with a sentimental present they’ll never see coming: A compilation of love notes from around the world!

A year ago I started working on a project for my boyfriend since he and I are in a long distance relationship. I decided to collect pictures from strangers around the world to show my love and appreciation for him. Sappy, much?

Let’s all pretend Johnny Depp is my boyfriend *hyperventilates*

Okay. Where was I? Right. Okay…

How to get started?

1. Log-in to Facebook and join Love Notes from Around the World and Unicorn Love Notes. Be sure to read the ‘pinned post’. It contain rules and instructions on how ‘note-swapping’ works.

2. Decide what phrase you want. For example: Grayson, Paula’s love for you is so big it has reached (location).

3. You may also ask your social media friends to do this for you. Have them write the phrase in a piece of paper and take a picture of it outside with beautiful scenery.

4. Once you’re happy with the number of notes you’ve collected, decide how you’re going to present it. Some print the pictures and make scrapbooks, others print them as a magazines. You may also create a video or slide show. And there are those who post them in Facebook and Instagram.

I was able to collect 600+ Love Notes from all seven continents (including Antarctica), the seven wonders of the world, Harry Potter film locations, Disney theme parks, the top beaches in the world, all 50 states in America, and much more.

Some love notes that I have collected:

I had fun doing the project and he enjoyed his little present. I also sent a magazine full of love notes to France which he showed his family. Win-win! ❤️
