99 Sweet And Flirty Notes To Put In Your Husband’s (Or Boyfriend’s) Lunch Box

Your hardworking guy deserves a delicious lunch break in the middle of the day to refuel and step away from the demands of the job.

But sometimes lunch can be as monotonous and uninspiring as work. 

Same old sandwich.

Same old chips.

Same old whatever it is he tends to eat every day.

Have you ever thought about shaking up your partner's lunchtime routine with something unexpected? 

Before sending your husband off with his lunch in hand, why not surprise him with one (or more) of these sweet and flirty notes?

With these sweet messages tucked into his lunch box, he’ll be all smiles when he opens it, no matter what kind of day (or sandwich) he’s having. 

Remind him that you’re always thinking of him with these fun little tokens of your love!

What Kinds of Things Should You Write in Lunch Box Notes for Your Husband?

It takes more than a boring “because I love you” to make your husband feel loved. A little creativity goes a long way when it comes to spicing up those lunch box notes.

Forget about the generic messages, and try writing something meaningful and unique. 

Here are some general topics to get you started that are sure to put a smile on his face come lunchtime:

  • Fun and Funny: Fun lunch notes are great for keeping things light and cheery. Try a joke, a silly riddle, or even an adorable emoji.
  • Encouragement: Give him some positive reinforcement with lunch box notes reminding him how much you believe in him. No matter what he is going through in life or at work, he’ll definitely appreciate your words of encouragement.
  • Flattery: Who doesn’t love a little flattery? With notes telling him how handsome, smart, and kind he is, you can be sure he will enjoy lunchtime even more.
  • Love and romance: Showing your husband that you genuinely love him doesn't have to take long, heartfelt letters or big romantic gestures. A sweet lunch box note telling him why you love him works just as well.

No matter what types of notes you decide to write for your husband, there’s no denying that they will make lunchtime even more enjoyable. 

Who knows, maybe he'll even start looking forward to lunchtime so he can have the pleasure of reading your sweet messages.

How Do I Write a Lunch Note for My Husband?

Writing a lunch note for your husband doesn't have to be complicated or time-consuming! Here are six tips to help you craft the perfect lunch note: 

Start With a Sweet Salutation

Begin your note with a sweet salutation such as “Hi Hubby!” or “To the love of my life.” These simple words will show your husband that you care and think of him even when you're apart.

Use an Endearing Nickname

If you have a special nickname for your husband, use it! Nicknames help to make lunch notes more personal and meaningful. 

From “Honey Bun” to “My Prince Charming,” you can come up with plenty of endearing nicknames.

Make it Personal

Include thoughts and inspiration about his day, your loving feelings about him, something he may be worried about at work, or funny stories you share. 

Mentioning these details shows that you are interested in his day and care about his feelings.

Acknowledge His Achievements

Let your husband know that you recognize the hard work he puts into his job and other tasks by acknowledging any achievements he has made.

This could include completing an important project at work or achieving small goals like working out every day for a month. 

The recognition can provide much-needed motivation and confidence in his abilities. 

Add an Inside Joke

Nothing says “I love you” like inside jokes.

Whether it's a funny situation that happened recently or something silly from your early days of dating, including an inside joke in your lunch note will definitely put a smile on his face and make your lunchtime message more endearing.

End With a Loving Statement

Finally, end your lunch note with a loving statement that expresses how much you appreciate him.

From something like “I'm so lucky to have you in my life” to “You make me the happiest person alive,” these words will show your husband how much he means to you and remind him of the love that you share!

Other Ideas for Surprising Him with His Lunch 

If lunch notes aren't your thing, there are other ways to surprise your husband. 

Whether it's packing his lunch in a fun lunch box or adding a little something extra to his lunch bag, here are a few ideas to make lunchtime more enjoyable for him:

  • Pack his favorite meal: Surprises don't always have to be grand gestures! If you know his favorite meal, consider packing it for him. This simple yet thoughtful gesture will make your husband feel extra special.
  • Include a spicy photo of you: Lunch notes don't have to be serious! If you want to spice things up, why not surprise him with a picture of you in a creative outfit? It's sure to make your lunch messages just as memorable.
  • Add a few snacks: If your husband loves snacking throughout the day, why not add some of his favorite treats to his lunch box? Whether it's popcorn, candy bars, or fresh fruits and vegetables, your husband will surely appreciate the extra effort you put into making his lunch.
  • Include a lunch game: If you want to make lunchtime more interactive, why not include a lunch game in your husband's lunch box? This could be anything from a word search, crossword puzzle, or even an origami project!
  • Order his favorite meal and have it delivered: If packing lunch is not your thing, why not order his favorite meal and have it delivered to him? Just make sure to send it with a lunch note that expresses your love and appreciation!


Nothing says “I love you” like a sweet, flirty lunch note! Whether you write it yourself or get creative with your surprises, these little messages can be just the thing to brighten up his day. 

So, show your husband some lunchtime love with the above ideas! He's sure to appreciate your thoughtfulness and love.
