Items to Beat Boredom
Movies: Pick a favorite movie that means something to both of you; preferably one that you could both watch over and over again, without getting sick of it. (Start with these V-Day Movie Deals!)
A Deck of Cards: On all of the face cards in the deck, glue or tape a picture of you, your kids, or your dog (and for an added laugh, a picture of HIM on the Joker card!)
Books or E-Readers: Pick a few books that you might both enjoy! When you email one another, you could review the book together. Don’t like the same types of books? Try reading something they like and vice versa. You might be surprised just how much you learn about a person through what they like to read.
