Valentines Day Gift Idea 1. Milktape

It used to be mixed tape, then a burnt CD, and now it’s all about USB playlist. Hop onto your iTunes account and make a playlist of songs that remind you of your special someone to download to their device. It’s compatible for Mac and Windows.

Valentines Day Gift Idea 2. A Card

If you ran out of words to say let this card do it for you. A card can have all the special touches and humour that are just right for your sweetheart. Add photos, mementos and items inside shared between just the two of you.

Valentines Day Gift Idea 3. Mutual Dream Board

Thanks to Oprah, dream boards are all the rage now. Find pictures and photos of both material and spiritual things you two are hoping to achieve together. You can include words like happiness, inner peace or increased sex drive, or pictures of a bigger house, a new car or a holiday destination.

Valentines Day Gift Idea 4. Your Very Own Chocolate/Treat Box

Rather than give your special someone a box of choccies they will probably only eat half of, make up a batch of their favourite type of treat and wrap it up pretty. Think honeycomb or strawberries dipped in chocolate, personalised M&Ms or jellybeans or homemade slices. You can also try having customised marshmallows with your photos printed on it.

This is a really cool idea! There are heaps of ‘make your own crossword’ sites where you choose the clues and answers and a purpose-built crossword can be downloaded and printed. Use clues that are just about the two of you, for example; Clue: ‘Where did we meet’  Answer: ‘At Bunnings’. It’s gonna be exciting!

Valentines Day Gift Idea 6. IOU Booklet

Tried and tested, the IOU booklet can always be a winner. Make sure you include really personal IOU’s; if you know they hate folding in the washing or love a good foot rub, make sure there are a couple of vouchers for those jobs. Be sure to include some fun ones like some date night ideas!

Valentines Day Gift Idea 7. Coffee Table Book

Better yet, make a virtual one! Most people store all their photos on their phone, so snaffle their phone and download all their pics into albums and folders. There are thousands of free slideshow/album type programs online and you can often find great deals for photobooks and albums to create hard copies to keep.

Valentines Day Gift Idea 8. Gourmet dinner or a simple picnic lunch

Find out your Valentine’s favourite dishes and spend an afternoon cooking a custom menu.

A pretty jar, a decorated box or a little booklet made of little poems, love notes and things you find special about your loved one are a really sweet way to show them how much you care.

Valentines Day Gift Idea 10. Socks

No matter how you choose to spend the day or what you choose to give, there’s really no better reason to show your special someone just how much you love them, on Valentines Day or any day!

What do you give your sweetheart on Valentines Day?
