Last year, I took a little risk here on the blog and got personal… really personal… I shared my idea for the Best Valentine’s Day Gift Ever! I guess you guys liked it, because it was our most popular post of 2012- you dirty dogs! Ha! Have no fear, this year I have another idea that’s a lot less prep and will still keep your man saying…
Let’s recap really quickly…
Check out this post for all the details and the full tutorial, but basically you’re going to use a bed sheet as a game board and pull off the most incredible surprise ever. Trust me ladies, you will win major points with this one. I can’t tell you how many letter I’ve gotten from readers that had the best time with this project! Husbands are huge fans of The Game of Love!
This year, we’re introducing the Game of Love Travel Version!
You don’t actually have to be traveling to play this version, but it’s perfect to take on the road. However, even at home sometimes you need a little “spice” and don’t have time to DIY an entire game board sheet (definitely find the time to make it at some point though!).
Here’s how you prep your game…
#1 Print out a bunch of our free printable cards.

#2 On each card you’ll write some kind of fun bedroom activity. Make some nice and others a bit more naughty. You’ll want some variety in your cards. If you need ideas for your cards you can check out The Original Game of Love Post and click on any of the pictures to enlarge and read my game board squares *blush*, but be creative and remember that your husband will appreciate the effort you’re putting in!
#3 Put all of the cards in a bag or container
Here’s how you play…
It’s kind of like let’s make a deal. Your hubs will choose a card out of the bag (without peeking), read the card and determine if he wants to PLAY or PASS. Here’s the catch… he can only choose 5 total cards to PLAY and once a card is PASSED you can’t get it back! Oh Snap! It’s super fun to see which activities he can’t resist and which ones he’s willing to pass on in hope of something even better! I’d recommend putting about 15 card options in your bag, but you can definitely do any number you’d like- you guys are pretty wild You can play one of two ways, either do all the wheeling and dealing at the beginning and then get to business or do one card and activity at a time. Jess prefers having Kev make all his decisions up front. Either way is fun!
We’re pretty sure this Game of Love Travel Version will be a huge hit! We hope it gives you the second year in a row of the Perfect Valentine’s Gift! Who knows, it might also make your hubs want to plan more weekends away so you can bring your game along!
Being married is hard work and with so many marriages falling apart these days, it can never hurt to go the extra mile to let your man know you love him! So here’s to another successful Valentine’s Day and here’s to women that aren’t afraid to have a little fun with their hubs!
Good luck and let us know how it goes! We loved hearing all your success stories from last year!
So, are you going to play the Original or Travel version this year?
