Romantic Notions

There are many tokens and notions you can give to a woman that will earn her affection – flowers, perfume, candy, and jewelry – but most of these cost a good amount of money. I have found a few fairly inexpensive things that you can do or get for your sweetheart which have the added advantage of leaving her speechless. I offer them here for the inspiration they may provide:
  1. Put some suet on her favorite bonnet, so songbirds will alight on it.
  2. Whitewash the dinner plates.
  3. Starch her best tablecloth into a form that both fits neatly and firmly over the table and offers a sculptural centerpiece for the placement of special dishes.
  4. Spread chicken feed in the yard to spell the words “I Love You”, and make sure to call her after the chickens are released.
  5. Oil the butter churn.
  6. Fill the well bucket with catfish.
  7. Buy her a pair of bright plaid stockings. Plaid stockings are both appreciated and cheaper than any other kind of stocking. You can gussy them up with a little lace.
  8. Give her a hat decorated with ribbons and stuffed squirrels. Or ribbons, stuffed squirrels, and suet.
These are just a few of the romantic gestures and notions with which you can impress your loved one with a minimal investment of cash. I guarantee she won’t know what to say.
