Personalized Crossword Puzzles

How fun would it be to solve a crossword puzzle all about you...and your spouse!

This idea could be used for many purposes including: midweek romance, a fun time-killer on a date, clues for your next date night, or a walk down memory lane as you relax in a suite on your anniversary.

Here are some links to sites that let you create your own personalized crossword puzzle:

So, all of the clues and answers should have to do with your relationship, marriage, and perhaps as a re-cap of your dating days.

It'd also be fun to do one of these annually, that way you could document all the "little things" about your relationship and they'd never be forgotten (if you keep the filled out puzzle each year). OR, if you were trying to tell him/her something,

Here are some ideas for clues:

Where you first said “I love you”
The place where you first kissed
The nickname you had for each other when dating
Where you went on your first date
Details about your wedding
The name of a hotel you stayed at on your honeymoon

(Try to dig deep into fun things you've done or memories that you'd like brought back up--it helps to look through journals, pictures, scrapbooks, etc. to get ideas for clues).

Special thanks to Rachel, one of Love, Actually's followers, for providing extra inspiration for this post!

Yay you're back! I LOVE this idea! I'm gonna start one right now!! lol

I absolutely LOVE this idea. I'm such a fanatic of all kinds of games. And this would definitely be something fun for us to do as we relax together in a hotel or something just before my husband leaves on his upcoming deployment. So fun.

Cher said...

Manda--yes, I'm back. Feels great!

Courtney--I agree...doing one of these together in a hotel would be way fun. I hate to say it, but we're not newlyweds anymore and we need entertainment other than the bed!

I'd love to hear from all of you how your crossword turned out and any ideas for clues you used... I gotta start planning my own!

I made my husband a word search because I didn't have the time to think of clues for a crossword puzzle.
The words were to ask him out on a date for later that evening. So after he found all the words he had to unscramble them into the sentence.
He loved it and added a bit of his own creativity to our evening date.

Cher said...

Lydia--that is terrific. I like the idea of the wordsearch, too. I'm sure there are places online that provide that service, too. I'll check into it! Thanks!

If anyone has needs their ex back, or a love spell to get your lover to love you, contact Dr.Ikhine He helped me get back the guy who used to like me, but because of mistakes I made, he was freaked out by me. At first, I thought him and I would never be together, but then I contacted Dr. Ikhine and he casted a spell on him, and now we are happy, and he loves me very much:)! I am pretty sure he will propose to me at graduation, and I know we will be happy:)! If you want him to cast a spell for you, just email him at: agbadado@gmail.com or call him at +234805692230 for a spell:)!! I hope he can help you like he has helped me:)!
