You know what I like? Getting old fashioned mail. These days it seems like every time I go to the mailbox, all I get is a big pile of advertisements. Every once in a while there is something legit in there that surprises me. It makes me smile to hear from people in old fashioned snail mail.
Romantic Tip: Send your love a letter at work or even home. You can disguise it in a regular business envelope and it can be funny or/and romantic. Or even a little naughty if you're planning a special evening together.
