Ever received a heart attack? The paper, less life-threatening type? Well, consider yourself attacked. Happy Valentine’s day. PS–“kærlighed” means “love” in Danish. PPS–wish me luck, this is my last day with long hair. Hip hip.
Valentine’s Day Heart Attack Ideas
We’ve done a few other “heart attack” surprises for Valentine’s Day! Try posting paper hearts to a friend or neighbor’s door like we did here (or put them on your own door/ windows for festive Valentine’s Day decor!). We tried another version of the heart attack gift box here. These boxes are a great way to show some love to everyone, from neighbors who are close by to friends and family who live far away. Another great way to share the holiday with those who are far away is to send a Valentine’s Day care package. Fill it with your loved one’s favorite sweets and some candy hearts!
Another easy way to spread some love is through balloon heart attack surprises! We did this in 2018 and 2020 (and yes, I dressed up like Cupid!), and we can’t get enough of these heart balloons! Maybe it will become a tradition to sprinkle the town with balloon hearts each year.
