We all know that communication is a vital part of any relationship. Since we are in the business of making your relationship the best it can be, we want to share this amazing idea with you! We have designed an easy way for you and your sweetheart to further communicate with each other! You can thank us later {wink}

So what exactly is a Gratitude Journal you may ask? Let’s go back for just a moment and I’ll share where the inspiration for this came from. It all started with this quote.

“There must be constant appreciation for each other and thoughtful demonstration of gratitude. A couple must encourage and help each other grow…” ~ James E. Faust 

This is something that most couples are aware of. Expressing thanks and gratitude for each other will get you farther in your marriage than NOT expressing thanks. A few benefits of constantly expressing gratitude to your sweetheart are:

  • Your sweetie feels like a rock star! 
  • They know that you notice the little things too and that you’re thankful (this is especially awesome if your sweetie’s love language is words)
  • Expressing gratitude sort of re-trains your brain in a way to notice the positive rather than the negative 
  • Your attitude is better! You’re generally happier and so is your sweetheart because you are working together and lifting each other up.

And that is just a few of the many many benefits of gratitude. Now who doesn’t want allllll THAT in their relationship?! I know I sure wanted it. My husband also happens to have the love language of words of affirmation so this was a biggy for me. But I am totally a writer! It is easier for me to express myself through writing rather than speaking. Thus began the quest to create the Couple’s Gratitude Journal.

Couples gratitude journals are the perfect way to express how amazing your spouse is to them! Plus it's a keepsake for you to look back on

So here we are! Whether you or your sweetie have a love language of words or you just want to be a couple that expresses gratitude more often, this is the perfect way to do so. Our Couple’s Gratitude Journal makes it easy to take a few moments and praise your sweetie in a new way! Plus it’s more creative than saying the same old “thank you for doing that” am I right?

With our journal you get 52 gratitude prompts PLUS 4 blanks to create your own. That means that you have enough prompts to get you through a whole year! And you’ll have the journal to look back on and remember how amazing your sweetie really is.

Our Gratitude Journal is easy to put together. Especially with our absolutely darling printables! The only thing that you need to get is a journal. I used a regular composition notebook. (Our local dollar store had them, so don’t go spending big bucks peeps!) Then I printed off the super cute journal cover and put it on the front of the journal. Once you cut out the prompts you are all set! I put our prompts in a little mason jar. Whoever starts the week off draws a prompt, sticks it to the page, and gets to writing! If your sweetie is forgetful (like me) then you may want to leave the journal on their side of the bed or something as a gentle reminder {wink}.

And don’t worry. You don’t need to fill up a while page in the journal. Just write from the heart. If that means one sentence, then it’s one sentence. If it means a whole page, then do a whole a whole page! Just make it meaningful.

My sweets and I share the notebook, so we keep the journal in a place where we both know where to find it. There is no pressure to both write in it together. This is something that you can do when ever you have a moment. Just make sure you get it done in that week {wink}. And don’t limit yourself to prompts that we have provided! They will definitely get you started but if you already wrote in the journal that week and your sweetheart does something that you are super grateful for, by ALL means write it in the journal!

Our Gratitude Journal is the perfect go-to spot for you and your sweetie to share with each other even when time doesn’t permit. My hubby and I have conflicting work schedules and he often gets home pretty late. So this is the perfect way for us to remain connected and close. This may even be a way for you to express to your spouse something that was hard to express before! If you’re in a long distance relationship, simply write in the journal solo and you’ll have a thoughtful and sweet treasure to give.
