20 Creative Valentine’s Ideas

Are you ready for Valentine’s Day?

While we feel that you should treat every day in your relationship like Valentine’s Day, we do want to help you make this special day incredibly romantic and memorable for both you and your sweetheart.

As we get closer to Valentine’s Day, we’ll continue to update our blog with any cool resources or ideas that we find.

Here are 20 Creative ways to say "I Love You" this February. Do your friends a favor and forward this message to them.

  1. Jewelry is always a favorite
    For the woman in your life, buy a heart-shaped locket and put a picture of yourself in it. Personalize the locket with your loved one’s initials so she’ll have something to wear that’s hers alone. Package it in a heart-shaped box or tied to fresh flowers. For your man, a good choice is the classic sterling silver ID bracelet or cuff links with his name or initials custom-engraved.

  2. Sleep under the stars

    Buy some glow in the dark stars from the toy department and arrange a special message above your bed.

  3. Rose is neccesary

    If your beloved has a green thumb, give a flowering plant to put in the garden to enjoy year after year.

  4. Their very own coloring book

    Draw a dozen or so silly pictures of memorable experiences. (browse through photo albums for ideas). Outline in black marker and then have the pages copied and bound on heavy paper at a copy shop. Give with a pack of crayons.

  5. Hold each other's hands and go for a short walk. If you are busy all the past days and have no time to be with your lover, this tip is important for you.

  6. Romantic long drive and a candle light dinner is a fabulous idea.

  7. Computer romance

    Change the screen saver on the computer to a scrolling message. For added effect, use a wingding or character font that can’t be read without decoding. Make a flash for your sweetie if you know how to use PowerPoint or Flash MX.

  8. Got milk?

    Hide a bunch of silly prizes and a card in your love’s favorite cereal.

  9. Jump start the romance

    Tie your card or gift on a three foot string and tie it to the bottom of an automatic garage door. When your honey comes home, the gift will magically arise to greet them.

  10. Rubber ducky races

    Go to a nearby river or stream and race rubber ducks. The loser takes the winner out for dessert.

  11. Warm the heart

    While your love is in the shower put their towel in the dryer for a few minutes so it will be toasty warm when he or she steps out.

  12. Music to their ears

    In your own voice, record a book, fairy tale or poetry on tape or CD for your dearest to listen to on the way to work or while he or she is out of town.

  13. A winter picnic

    Move the living room furniture and have a picnic in the middle of the floor complete with blanket, picnic basket, and all the fixings (in front of a roaring fireplace would add to the effect).

  14. Send a mail bomb

    Sending a card can be exploding romantic just by adding something unexpected: a feather, leaf, matches, lock of your hair, pressed flower or your handkerchief scented with perfume/cologne.

  15. The personal touch

    Gently scratch his back for ten minutes while he falls asleep or brush her hair for the same amount of time.

  16. Mirror, mirror on the wall

    Use Rain-X Anti Fog (used to keep car windows from fogging up) and a cotton swab to write a message that will mysteriously appear on the bathroom mirror while your sweetheart is showering. Or put that old tube of lipstick to good use with a good morning greeting on the mirror.

  17. The Jelly Belly game

    Blindfold him and feed him Jelly Bellies. If he guesses the flavor correctly, he gets a prize. If he guesses wrong, you get a prize. To make it more interesting, combine flavors (root beer + ice cream = root beer float, coconut + pineapple = pina colada, chocolate + cherry = chocolate covered cherries, etc.).

  18. Welcome home!

    Decorate the house for the special occasion. Implement smart tricks for creating the mood for romance. Dim lights, light music, romantic songs and most importantly attire a nice costume specially meant for Valentine's Day. Adorn yourself with jewelry and other fashion accessories.

  19. Make a photo slide show!

    Make a photo slide show of you two and burn it to a DVD. With this DVD your sweetie can review the sweetie memory and feel the love of you everywhere and for ever. Not just February 14 , Love should be continuous.

  20. And finally, whatever you do, just let your hair and your defenses down, and enjoy each other's company.
