A FEW FILL-IN POINTERS:

Printable Version (Click to Download)
  • People crave specifics. They want to be told, in precise detail, why they are the bees’ knees. So if you’re not a poet, or even a good speller, don’t sweat it! Just be real—and specific.
  • Remember, seemingly banal choices can be surprisingly moving.
  • Write your fill-ins using a pencil at first, or on a separate piece of paper. It’s less pressure. And if you get stuck, feel free to scribble out and rewrite any prompt that’s giving you trouble.

SPECIFICS TO CONSIDER:

  • Unexpected physical attributes (fingers, voice, scent)
  • Little things you secretly enjoy (the way they brush their hair, sneeze, or twitch in their sleep)
  • Qualities you admire that the person may be unaware of (an adventurous palate, an ability to apologize, a facility with power tools)
  • Positive ways this person has affected you (teaching you to sew, helping you deal, upping your Scrabble game)

OH, AND ALSO:

  • Don’t overthink it.
  • Don't be hard on yourself.
  • Just relax.
  • They're going to love it.
