Valentine's Day - Chocolate of the Month Gift

N got me these pink roses a few days early so I gave his gift on Friday.
I tried to think of something N would really like for Valentine's day and I immediately thought about chocolate. He loves, loves, chocolate. 

I decided to get him a "membership" to a Chocolate of the Month Club. And by "membership" I mean... I'll be buying him a new chocolate bar at the start of each month for the rest of the year. 

When I gave him his first delivery with a chocolate bar for January and February he thought it was "the real deal" (a real chocolate of the month club) until he started reading my job answers to the frequently asked question page that was included in the envelope. :-)

I designed a membership card and a punch card and laminated them both so they looked professional. Packing tape worked great for lamination. I used the font Nite Club which I downloaded from

I even put the months in Spanish on the back just for fun.
Next I made a welcome letter... (PDF of letter)
 and a page of frequently asked questions (PDF of frequently asked questions).
I put the letter, frequently asked questions, membership card and punch car in an envelope. 

I went to the co-op and bought the first two chocolate bars. I was holding a handful of chocolate bars trying to decide when a man came up and commented on how many chocolate bars I had. I explained that my husband has a chocolate problem (addiction) and I was buying him some for Valentine's Day. He laughed and recommended two bars. I thanked him for his recommendation and bought the two bars he suggested.

February's Chocolate bar
As an added bonus, this bar has a love poem inside. :-)
I put the bars in a box, wrapped it with a paper bag and put a sticker on it. 
Then I used ribbon to tie the box and envelope together to give to N. 
 He loved the gift and is excited to receive a new chocolate bar every month for a year. I'm excited for him to share the chocolates with me....:-)

I have uploaded the membership card, punch card and letterhead. For some reason the text on the membership card looks didn't look like that before I uploaded it so I'm not sure what happened.

  1. I love this idea. I am going to bookmark this.

  2. What a brilliant idea. I think I might have to sign my husband up for this 'club'. It will have to start next month though, a bit late for Valentine's day here.

  3. What font did you use for the membership card? I really like it!

  4. Kate - I used the font Nite Club - I just added a link in the post to download this font from

  5. This is so creative! I can tell you put a lot of thought into this and I hope he enjoys it!

  6. You are so creative. And what a great gift!

  7. I love this idea! I wish I would have seen it before Valentines day. I guess there are always other holidays :)

  8. ha ha. this is such a funny idea! I will have to remember this for next year =) ha ha ha.

  9. OMG!!! This is the cutest thing I have ever seen. I might pass on the idea to DH for him to use for me :)
