Need a Valentine Gift?

AHHHHHH, sweet, sweet, honey, honey love day is just around the corner, isn't it?


Whatcha gettin' yer man?

A wallet, some new cologne, an electric toothbrush, a new pack of boxers?

These are all gifts that fall into the category of great, no doubt. But perhaps you might want to select something that helps to facilitate and render the both of you with quality time, silliness shared, and simple, easy gifts of expression.

Ahem. Got your gift right here.

Why Today? is a couples game that I have created to help arouse (you like how I used that word, didn't you?) creativity, everyday gifts of happiness, and easy love and conversation that a marriage sometimes misplaces from time to time.

The idea of creating this game came to me over the Christmas holidays. We really wanted to give our loved ones and friends near and dear gifts that were from the heart and handmade.

We wanted to do one gift for each of these couples.

My inspiration came from, of course, my hunky husband. I was thinking of the things he does that mean the most to me. Then I thought of things that I do that he really appreciates as well.

Believe it or not, almost all of them came back to words and feelings exchanged or small tasks exhibited. Money wasn't a huge factor at all.

Well, this set my craftiness in overdrive.

Hence Why Today? was born.

Here is how it works:

The game comes with an overview of game origin and inspiration as well as directions on how to play, of course. It also comes complete with ways that you can vary the way you play the game once you are done. It EVEN is equipped with a list of several ways to repurpose each and all pieces parts to the game for the GO GREEN in you.

Allow me to introduce each member of this Why Today? team.

Here is your jar of tasks and items for sharing:

Here are your game players hand painted by me to match each spouse's eye color and hair: (one dimensional objects really do say it all don't they?)

Here are your game pieces to represent when a task or an item has been shared. They are color coordinated to represent either the task or the sharing item:

Attached to the "game players" is a ribbon to house the color coded game pieces once each task or shared item is complete.

The jar is filled with oodles of goodies for sharing and tasking all in the goodness of love. They have such a wide range of topics and tasks that encompass both the husband and wife mentalities. In a nutshell, please rest assured,husbands, that you won't have to be painting your wife's toenails or looking at home accents while sipping a mocha latte should you draw one of the slips out. Rest assured.

Yes, I feel like I have a good mix for both genders to appreciate.

The game's name is a sure classic completely inspired and graciously borrowed from this sweet one and her husband.

This game hopes to leave you and your sweetheart with more than one answer to Why Today? Why is today the day of all days to be yours forever?

Here is a glimpse of only 1/4th that I made for Christmas gifts. So far, the reports that I have heard back have been great. Lots of, "Awww, this is so sweet." and some more of "We are having so much fun with this!"

Yes, yes. These are the Christmas theme.

But, the Valentine theme is ready and waiting with all its pink and red hearts.

There are 3 versions to this game in which to select:

1. Married couples with kiddos version
2. Married couples with no kiddos
3. Dating couples

So, for that sweet Valentine's Day just around the corner, Why Today? will give you memories and mini treats to carry you through much more than just that 14th day of February. It's the game that keeps the gift of connecting and appreciating on the front burner of any romance.
