14 CREATIVE VALENTINES IDEAS
by Michael Webb, Founder
http://theromantic.com/

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

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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).

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

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

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.

The Jelly Belly game Blindfold him and feed him Jelly Bellys. 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
(rootbeer + ice cream = root beer float, coconut + pineapple = pina
colada, chocolate + cherry = chocolate covered cherries, etc.).

Welcome home!
Use chalk to write a welcome home greeting on the sidewalk.
