Finding a clever way to remind someone that you love her is difficult, but a little bit of effort and creativity can go far. Need proof? Just look at the viral video which is currently making girls everywhere swoon as their husbands and boyfriends slap their foreheads and mutter "why didn't I think of that?"

The video was recorded by a fellow named Sean Ohlenkamp who was looking for an adorable and geeky way to remind his wife of how much he appreciates her on their third anniversary.

His solution? To place a folder onto her desktop — on top of a background which encourages her to take a look inside. Inside the folder? Another folder and another and another — Ohlenkamp basically created a series of nested folders which when opened in sequence allowed his wife to read a sweet note in a ridiculously cute choose-your-own-adventure style.

Guys, steal this idea if you've got a geeky girl in your life. It only takes a few minutes to create a bunch of folders, but the result will make just about any heart melt.
