Him: “I love you mostest x 100”
You: “I love you mostest x infinity,”
Him: “I love you mostest to the infinity power…”

Last but not least, this Message in a Bottle would make a wonderful sentimental Christmas gift for your boyfriend. Inside are 50 pre-written romantic messages that your boyfriend can pull when he misses you or just want to be reminded how much you love him.
I LOVE that the messages are pre-written for you because I’ve heard it takes an insane amount of time to write in your own messages and roll them up small enough to fit into a pill capsule.
This gift allows you to get super sentimental without taking a whole bunch of time.
