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 fiancé 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!
The goal is to crowdsource personalized love notes from each of the 50 states — bonus points if you can get international submissions as well. Each note should read, "[Groom's Name Here], [Bride's Name Here] love is so big for you that it has reached [State Name or Country Here]." Then, each well-wisher needs to take a photo of their note, preferably in an outdoor setting that plays up their home state (e.g. a snowy woodland in Alaska, the skyline of New York City). You could also create a book with the photos and give it to your groom as a wedding-day surprise or an anniversary gift.

The savvy brides from our "All About Weddings: The Bridal Guide Community" Facebook community clued us into this fun trend. Although the exact origin is unknown, the photos began surfacing around January 23rd in mommy groups on Facebook.
