- Make a balloon bouquet: Using transparent balloons, fill each balloon with small
colorful items such as
love notes, confetti, and flower petals. Blow them up and attach them together with a ribbon to create
your balloon bouquet! Note: You can make confetti by using colorful paper and a hole punch. If you have
a heart shaped hole punch, that is even better!
- Create a CD: Include your favorite love songs (or songs that have special meaning to the
two of you) and put it in his or her car, ready to play when the engine is started.
- Photo: Get a friend to take a sexy picture of you and have it framed for your love.
- Lottery: Make a personalized scratch and win card for them. Take a heavy piece of paper
and draw hearts on it.
Using a permanent marker, write something you will do as a prize in each heart. Color over the top of
each heart with red crayon until the crayon is really thick and you can't see the words anymore. The
rules are, only one out of three hearts can be scratched.
- Decorate the lawn: This is a really fun and unique Valentine gift the whole neighborhood
will know about! Cut hearts out of sturdy paper and put the pointed end of each heart between the prongs of a
plastic fork. Write messages on the hearts if you want to and stake them all over the front yard by sticking the
handles of the forks into the grass.
- Reminder of your love: This gift takes a little planning but is a lot of fun. Give your
valentine a card that
says, "Whenever you see a pink (lavender, red, whatever color you like) ribbon, remember how much I love
you." Put the first bow on their car, backpack or bike. Then drive or walk along the route to your love's
school or work and tie big bows on random trees, stop signs, bridge overpasses, snowmen, etc. Be sure to remove
- I love you pillow: On a light solid colored pillowcase write or sew a
special message like, "Sweet Dreams", "True Love" or "I love you" on one end. Using your computer, print
a picture of the two of you on iron-on transfer paper and iron the transfer on the center of the pillowcase.
- Indoor picnic: Cook a nice dinner and serve it on the floor - in front of the fireplace is nice,
if you have one - on a blanket. Use candles and have soft music. Some white Christmas lights make it an
especially romantic celebration!
