Create a Jar Filled with Love

What can help reduce stress, improve blood circulation, and even release anti-aging hormones to keep you feeling young? According to some studies, the answer is love. This Valentine’s Day, we’d like to prescribe this heartwarming gift idea: create a love jar and fill it with personal notes, inspirational quotes, and even love coupons, for a special delivery to the one you love. All you need are some basic items from around the house, Avery Tickets with Tear-away Stubs and/or Avery Clean Edge Business Cards, Avery Round Labels, and your sweet messages.
