I can’t believe January is quickly coming to a close and February is rolling in!! Speaking of February, many of you lovebirds out there must be busy thinking of what to do when that special day in February comes. Chocolates, a fancy dinner, and a bouquet of flowers are probably what pops up first in your mind, right?
1000couples is looking to mix things up by offering a digital platform where you can claim a spot on their website and profess your love and devotion to your significant other, and it will remain there forever! How lovely would it be to look back on that specific day and be able to read exactly what your love said to/about you? Yeah, social media is there and you can do the same thing but reserving a spot on a site exclusively for the purpose of sending a sweet note on Valentine’s Day is even more special, don’t you think?!
How It Works
Basically, it’s a first come, first serve basis, open to the first 1000 couples … hence the name 1000couples. You can sign up on the site for a fee which will increase by $1 (0.78p) every time someone signs up. What’s pretty nice is that half of the profits will be given to charity!
Harry, one of the early buyers, said,
I met my wife 8 years ago online so the internet has always been a part of our love story. I tried 1000Couples because I was impressed at the level of ingenuity & the flavor of romance in it. My wife loves Valentine’s Day & I wanted to gift her something unique. The price was a little steep but since the business donates 50% of all its profits to charity, it was fine for me & so I went ahead with it.”
My Feelings About It
I personally think this is a cool idea because my boyfriend and I are in a long distance relationship. We also met online. Buying and sending each other physical goods can get pretty pricey by itself, so I think the fact that he or I could go back to our roots of how we met and do this is something special (hi boyfriend, yes you, pay attention)! I definitely want to look back and, depending on what I write, giggle with delight or cringe with how sappy and lovey dovey the note was. In return for this post, I was gifted a spot on the site, which I am grateful and excited to use!
Anyway, definitely check it out 1000couples if you’re interested in giving a spin to your Valentine’s Day this year. They’ll be pleasantly surprised!
