Be My Valentine Challenge

Here we are on week 2 of the "Be my Valentine Challenge". I had fun last week praising my husband on Facebook and face to face. :) I wrote a praise either on his wall or tagged him in a status daily. He hasn't commented on any of them though.....
 Oh well. 
This week's challenge is to get creative!
Here's what Courtney says ~  

This week's challenge is: be a little more creative with your praise. Surprise your husband with:
1. A love message on the mirror
2. A love message packed in his lunch
3. Use sidewalk chalk and write a love message on the driveway
4. Write a list of ten things you admire about him and then read them out loud to him.
5. Make a toast to him at dinner with friends. Or raise your glass at dinner and list the things you admire about your husband for your children to hear!
6. Buy or make your husband a trophy and engrave it with the words "The Best Husband in the World." (I found a cheap trophy at a party supplies store - the kids loved presenting it to daddy)
7. Write a poem - even if you can't write - it can be goofy. Include in it references to your favorite movies, restaurants, places to go and memories. He will enjoy the trip down memory lane and the laugh!
8- Blow up balloons and put a loving message in each one. Fill your bedroom with balloons as a surprise.
9- Take a roll of receipt tape and write a long message with the things you admire and respect about your husband - then roll it up and put it in a bottle for your husband to open and read. (I made many of these for my husband in college when we were dating long distance. I mailed them in packages.)
10. Get creative with your selflessness!

Hmmm... a few of these are automatically out for me. (like the sidewalk is buried under snow and ice, lol)
I'll have to think about this one a bit. 
I do my best thinking in the shower which is where I am headed next so I'm sure something fun and creative will come to me soon! 
What about you? What are some fun creative ways you have showered your man with praise?
