“14 Creative Valentine’s Ideas”

By Michael Webb, Founder www.TheRomantic.com

Here are 14 Creative (yet inexpensive) ways to say “I Love You” this February. Do your friends a favor and forward this message to them.

  1. Sleep under the stars
    Buy some glow in the dark stars from the toy department and arrange a special message above your bed.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Got milk?
    Hide a bunch of silly prizes and a card in your love’s favorite cereal.
  5. 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.
  6. Rubber ducky races
    Go to a nearby river or stream and race rubber ducks. The loser takes the winner out for dessert.
  7. 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.
  8. Music to their ears
    In your own voice, record a book, fairy tale or poetry on tape for your dearest to listen to on the way to work or while he or she is out of town.
  9. 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).
  10. 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.
  11. The personal touch
    Gently scratch his back for ten minutes while he falls asleep or brush her hair for the same amount of time.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.).
  14. Welcome home!
    Use chalk to write a welcome home greeting on the sidewalk.
