Breakfast in bed, a day at the spa, handmade coupons for everything from hugs to household chores – all these are great. But, while you’re at it, why not send her over the moon with some thoughtful words of recognition. Do these prompts, cull the good stuff and I promise you, you will be golden for the year.
As always, stay loose, don’t wait for the perfect words, but keep your pen moving, let it get messy and allow the words to surprise you.
