10 Ways To Leave [Love Notes For] Your Lover

10 Ways To Leave [Love Notes For] Your Lover

The Dictionary defines a love letter as:
1. a letter or note written by someone to his or her sweetheart or lover
2. (in Malaysia) a type of biscuit, made from eggs and rice flour and rolled into a cylinder

To be clear, we're not talking about Malaysian biscuits here.

Love letters are seemingly vintage now, but we think (like many style inspirations from the 60s and 70s) they are due for a comeback. Here are a few fun ways to get back on top of your Love Note game and knock the socks off your lover. 

On the bathroom mirror

There’s something so sexy about red lipstick. Use yours to write out a sultry little note on your bathroom mirror for your lover to find. It’ll get him excited and he’ll be picturing your lips!

On the shower door

When he hops in after a sweaty workout, or first thing in the morning... and he’s scrubbing away with soap in his eyes, draw out a heart shape for a quick “I LOVE YOU” message in the steamy door for him when he rinses off.

In the fridge magnets

It's called "Magnetic Poetry" and it's a kit with all kinds of words that you can slap up on your fridge and use to create hilarious, creative or even sexy messages you'll enjoy as you grab the cream for your coffee.

On the way out

Do you leave before him in the morning? Write out something sweet on a sticky note and post it on the inside of the door so he’ll catch it on his way out for the day. Does he leave before you? Write the note before bed. Voila!

In his pocket

Sneak a little something into his jeans or his jacket before he gets dressed for the day. When he's emptying them later to find receipts for his expenses, he'll love finding this in the mix. 

In his lunch kit

Does bae pack a lunch each day (cute), or do you pack a lunch for him (even cuter)? The sandwich will curb his hunger, but a little love note from you will curb his girlfriend cravings and get him through until the end of the day.

In the mail

Are you in a long distance relationship? Or do you travel a lot for work? Kick it old school and send snail mail. These days, mail is all bills and flyers (and no one likes those!), so throw a postcard or a love letter into the mix to surprise and delight him.

In an email

Okay okay, this may not seem that original. But in a world of non-stop text messaging, even an email will seem like a blast from the past--think late 90's.

On his pillow

Leave a "Good Morning" message on his pillow, so it’s the first thing he sees when he opens his eyes. Bonus points if your note says: “Meet me in the kitchen for breakfast, Handsome. I’m making your favourite”.

On your My Cinema Lightbox

It’s bold, it’s trendy and it’s changeable. Create messages for your lover using the different letter packs and display them in your home where everyone can see. Light up his day!

9 Ways To Use Your My Cinema Lightbox At Your Wedding

9 Ways To Use Your My Cinema Lightbox At Your Wedding

Ahhhh weddings! A time for confetti, cake and, of course, true love. 

Once you've said YES to the man you're going to marry, the fun has only just begun, because girl, now you've got a wedding to plan! This is your big day and so you're going to want to pull out all the stops to make it one to remember. You need to pick a perfect venue, a menu that will make everyone happy, and you can't forget the dress that makes you feel like a million dollars. You want it all to be beautiful, magical and romantic and--you want it to be unique! (You can't have it falling short to your sister-in-laws nuptials from the year before.) 

Here are 9 fun ways to use your My Cinema Lightbox on or leading up to your big day that will surprise and delight all your guests! 

In Your Invitations

Customize your invitations by inserting a photo of your own, and use your My Cinema Lightbox to create this memorable imagery. We suggest posing your lightbox with a few key items, or a fitting backdrop of your choice and trying messages like YOU'RE INVITED or BE THERE OR BE SQUARE. 

At Your Bridal Shower

This event is all about the ladies and that usually means the prettiest details are not to be missed. So as you're serving up glasses of pink champagne with frozen raspberries and chocolate covered strawberries on a stick to guests with perfectly gift-wrapped bags of tissue paper and lingerie, put up your My Cinema Lightbox with a cute message like HAPPY GIRLS ARE THE PRETTIEST or BRIDE TO BE.

At The Ceremony

There are going to be oodles of photos of you two and your wedding party up at the alter, gazing lovingly into each other's eyes, reciting your vows. Why not position your My Cinema Lightbox in view just in front, behind or to the side with something to mark the moment like: AUGUST 9, 2016 or TILL DEATH DO US PART.

During Your Photo Session

Photographer's love these things because they easily add a little flair to their already spectacular pictures, and you get to personalize it any way you like to add some personality or romance or even humour to your shots. Try something like JUST MARRIED or MR & MRS. Toronto Photographer Roberto Lissia captured this perfect shot using "YOU & ME FOREVER".

At The Reception Entrance

We recommend getting the XL Cinema Lightbox for this one, and as your guests walk toward the reception hall, catch their eye and make them feel welcome with a message like:  or TIME TO GET THE PARTY STARTED.

At The Head Table

Much like the alter, this is going to be a hot spot for photos and having a favorite quote or customizable caption of some kind on the whole scene might be kind of unique. You could try YOU & ME, FOREVER PLEASE or ALL BECAUSE TWO PEOPLE FELL IN LOVE. 

At The Cake Table

The Mini Cinema Lightbox may be all you need here, but bring a little attention to the cake table with a cute message like IS IT TIME TO CUT THE CAKE YET? or I LOVE YOU LIKE A FAT KID LOVES CAKE.

In The Restroom

Okay wait--hear us out. You know how at some weddings people have started leaving little amenities baskets in the restrooms with extra bobby pins, stain remover, hairspray, breath freshener, etc. What if you added a little message in there too to up your restroom game like HELP YOURSELF or A FRIEND IN NEED IS A FRIEND INDEED?

At The Bar

Not that most people need help finding this corner of the room, but still, a bar is a bar is a bar... until you add some unique touches! And this is a great place to add humour with messages like IT'S GIN O'CLOCK or SHAKEN NOT STIRRED. 

Now that you've got some ideas, back to planning for you! You still need to decide on your guest favours and pick the flowers. Get to it!
