1. Don't go for normal. Be weird, fun and creative.
2. Don't be too cheesy.
3. Skip the flowers and balloons.
4. Gifts don't have to be bought. Use your head and make something special.
5. If you're going for funny, make sure your significant other can take a joke.
6. Don't try to sing your lover a song if you're tone deaf.
7. If you don't have a boyfriend or girlfriend, ask a friend to be your Valentine.
8. Don't lead them on, make it absolutely clear you are just friends!
9. Keep it simple! If the idea is too complex, your special person might become confused and your idea of a sweet Valentine's Day will be crushed.
10. Make this Valentine's Day one to remember!
If you just can't get away from the sweet treat of chocolate and you want to do something for a special friend, but don't want to make it to awkward, make it clear that your friendship is important! Spell out Friend-Zoned in chocolate and don't forget the cute heart over the “i.”
Are you a joker rather than a lover at heart? Then Valentine's Day probably isn't your thing. Instead of candy and balloons, give your love a puzzle. In some way have it say, "I was going to get you something sweet, but I figured I was all the sugar you would need."
*Warning: If your girl/boyfriend can't take a joke then I would not advise this gift!
This is a gift for the girls. Boys, hearts are everywhere during Valentine’s Day, heart candies, heart cards, heart-covered bears, even heart shaped furniture. A heart pillow is perfect for cuddling up with her. Let's face it guys, your lap really isn't that comfortable.
Is your lady or lad always on the go? Do they sweat a lot when working out? For this Valentine’s get them something that will not only make them huggable after hitting the gym, but keep their skin satiny smooth. Anti-Monkey Butt Powder works to keep sweaty areas dry and soft. No more fear of having a wet sweaty hug or rough itchy irritated skin, just pure bliss.
*Available for Ladies and Men.
Ladies, do you have a lovey-dovey boyfriend and just need this one day to have to yourself? Here's your solution! Get a pair of movie tickets to the most gruesome movie in theaters. Give them to your boyfriend’s best friend and tell him to take your boyfriend out for the day to do guy stuff. It's a win-win, your boyfriend gets to chill with his "home-boy" and you have the day to relax.
Maybe you don't want a serious Valentine's Day. We all have really embarrassing photos of ourselves, whether we have food all over or eyes crossed or caught in the middle of a yawn. Take your significant other’s most embarrassing photos and make a collage! Give it to them on Valentine's Day and make up some random line like, "You're weird but I love you for it," or "If you're so tired, why not take my hand and lean on me." You'll both have a laugh and won't forget it.
Not everyone has buckets and buckets of money. If you are one of those people then do something that's truly from your heart. A few ideas would include making a heart box from old water bottles or cardboard. Color it with red markers and put a candy ring or necklace in it. Another idea would be to take the ends of pencil erasers and glue them on paper into a heart, write out or come up with something like, "I can't write you a love story, but I can erase the horror story." Finally give them a bag of letter cereal. Tell them it's a game and they have to spell the secret message.
*Tip: If they don't get the secret message after 10 minutes, you may want to help them out.
