Creative Valentine Ideas!

I've never really had a lot of money, so I've had to be very creative with my gifts for the people I love on Valentine's Day. 

These are all super simple and very inexpensive. Definitely perfect for last minute gifts and will put a smile on the face of the ones you love!

1. Buy a box of children's Valentines and write a note on each one. Put them back in the box and give the entire thing to that special someone!

2. Cut out three hearts. Write the words "I" "Love" and "You" on their own heart. Then take a picture of yourself holding them in front of you. The pictures are plenty, but if you want to spend a little extra time and cash, print them and put them in three separate frames.

3. I've always been a fan of a good card. Feel free to buy a card from the store if it's the perfect card for someone you care about. Just don't leave it there! Be sure you write something inside of the card that will mean something more than whatever Hallmark wrote.

4. Create a scrapbook page!

(This is a two page spread that I made of lovey type pictures of my family.)

5. Buy an inexpensive Valentine's themed puzzle. Put it together, flip it over, and write a message to your loved one on the back. Take it all apart and put it back in the box. It's a fun Valentine and an activity! I did this this year and had so much fun with it! (Another option is to write something you love about that person on the back of each piece of the puzzle!)

6. Make a short video telling someone how much you love them and post it on YouTube! This is a great one for those of you in Long Distance Relationships or living away from your family or friends! It lets them see your smiling face and hear your voice as you tell them how much they mean to you!

7. And for all of you bloggers, be sure to dedicate a post to those you love on February 14th!

Do you have anymore great ideas? I'd love to hear them in the comments!

I still buy the kiddie Valentine's to give to my co-workers, or cast mates if I'm working on a show.

Nice ideas.

Wow! You are so creative. I LOVE the puzzle idea. I'm gonna have to steal that one. Next year though, I've already got this year down. ;)

I love these ideas.

Also, I added you to my blog roll, because I love finding other Vegas folk randomly on the web.
