Love notes you equal my best friend plus the love of my life

Love Notes for Your Favorite Traveler

My husband, Chris, is a seasoned business traveler. Prior to the pandemic, he was traveling every week across the United States and around the world.

Friends would often ask “Where’s Chris this week?”, and if he was within the United States, I would joke, “Oh, he’s just local this week.”

Sometimes he would have meetings in numerous countries during one trip and I would shrug my shoulders and say, “I’m not really sure where he is right now!”

His business travels have taken him to six continents and numerous states and countries world wide.

You might think it is hard to keep the romance alive, but we learned along the way how to keep a “long distance” relationship strong and happy.

Love Notes for Him When Traveling

As Chris prepared for his trips and began to pack his Briggs & Riley suitcase (highly recommended if you travel frequently), he was very purposeful in folding his dress shirts just so, stuffing socks into his dress shoes to save on space, and using packing cubes [affiliate] to organize under clothing and ties.

It is an art to pack for a week-long business trip in one carry-on size suitcase.

On one of his multi-country, multi-week business trips a number of years ago, I surprised Chris with LOVE NOTES tucked and hidden throughout his clothes.

No worries, I was careful not to mess up his packing system!

He LOVED the notes and kept being surprised each day as he planned his clothing for the day and found new notes.

I even tucked love notes into Chris’ “dopp” kit or toiletries kit. It is always fun to find a note when you brush your teeth for the night right?

These DIY love notes for him were just the thing he needed when he was wishing for home.

Surprising Chris with love notes on his international trips became a thing.

Coming up with new and creative love notes for my traveling husband had me scouring Pinterest and the internet for the best love quotes for travel, for ideas on what to write in a love note to your husband, and for the most romantic love notes.

Sometimes, I would even number the notes so that he would know how many love notes were hidden in his luggage.

There were even a few times when Chris didn’t find all of the love notes and came across them later on shorter business trips within the United States.

Love notes for couples always brought a smile to his face.

Since he was traveling so often, it was a small and simple way for us to stay connected and keep our relationship strong and happy.

Do you have a frequent traveler in your life who would appreciate love notes while they are away?

Or just someone who makes you feel special?

They are not just for those who travel.

These DIY love notes for him or even for your children are perfectly awesome to tuck into someone’s lunch, to place under a pillow, or to hide around the house.

While Chris was away on one of his trips, he collected the notes, took a picture, and posted on Facebook:

There are lots of reasons Jolayne is awesome. But this one is especially great and worth sharing, even if personal. Going on frequent business trips around the world may seem luxurious and amazing, but in truth it’s really hard missing so much of what goes on at home. Sometimes it’s a real drag. Mostly it’s just hotels, restaurants, airplanes, and offices.

On my last trip, Jo hid over a dozen notes in my luggage for me to find throughout my trip. The kids even pitched in with their own notes too. What a pick me up! It made being gone for three weeks just a bit easier. Thanks babe for being so supportive!

Final Thoughts on Love Notes

How do couples express love? One way is to tuck DIY love notes for him (or her) into their luggage.

We are a note-writing couple. That’s is one way that we communicate our love for each other.

We are even a note-writing family.

I love to walk into my girls’ rooms and see the notes they leave for each other. I love the notes my husband leaves for me and my girls. I love the excitement of knowing that he will find the notes I have hidden throughout his suitcase when he travels.

I LOVE this idea so much! I send daily notes in my kids’ lunchboxes during the school year. It’s such a fun way to connect with our loved ones. If my husband starts traveling for work again, I’ll have to remember to do this for him as well. <3

I love the idea of slipping love notes into a bag. What a nice surprise when the bag is opened in a new city. I am sure they brought a smile to your husband’s face. I may steal this idea and start leaving them around the house.

this is the sweetest suggestion! i am 100% doing this for my BF the next time he has to travel for work… especially now with travel being a bit more hectic, he will just adore this when he unpacks.

Such a sweet idea! I have hidden little surprises in the luggage for the kids before, but maybe I should hide some notes for Hubby too!
