Nothing says ‘I love you’ like an adorable teddy bear!

Classic Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Chocolate covered strawberries are a classic gift that can be found everywhere on Valentine’s Day. Luckily, they are quite easy to make and are the perfect present for someone with a sweet tooth. All you have to do is melt the chocolate of your choice and decorate them with sprinkles, chocolate drizzle, almonds, Pop Rocks, or anything else you can think of.

Memory Collage

A wonderful way to remind your significant other of the time you have spent together is with a collage of your memories with one another. This college can be filled with photos, screenshots of cute text messages, ticket stubs, lipstick stains, and any other items that represent your relationship.


Another classic, romantic Valentine’s Day gift to make your valentine’s heart soar is poetry. This is of course a wonderful way to express yourself in a creative, personal way if you enjoy writing. However, if your significant other loves poetry but you are not confident in your writing abilities, you can still convey your emotions through literature. Rather than writing poems on your own, you can search for romantic poetry that perfectly articulates your feelings and create a collection to gift to your loved one.

Cozy Date Night Kit

Since it’s still a little chilly outside, why not spend an evening cozied up with your sweetheart to keep warm? You can fill a basket with snacks, movies, face masks, cozy pajamas, fluffy socks, and other gifts for you and your significant other to enjoy together while you binge watch your favorite shows and stay toasty.

I Love You Jar

An I Love You Jar is simply a jar filled with written notes of fond memories, reasons why you love your significant other, kind messages, and anything else you would like to include. This gift doesn’t have to be complicated since it speaks for itself, and it can provide comfort or happiness to your partner when they are missing you.


Origami can be as adorable as a teddy bear or as elegant as a rose, and there are many patterns with varying difficulties, making it a great option for artists no matter their skill level. You can create a wide array of interesting art pieces from cutesy hearts to delicate swans that spark conversation and stand out.

Homemade Food

Have you ever heard the phrase “The best way to someone’s heart is through their stomach?” Well, that saying exists for a good reason because delicious food can be a charming way to show that you care for someone. Even the simplest homemade snacks can taste like a warm hug or a sweet kiss when you take the time to carefully prepare tasty treats for your valentine.

Cootie Catcher

The Cootie Catcher is a timeless childhood staple with so much creative potential. It’s easy to make and it can be transformed into a delightful Valentine’s Day game by decorating it with a few hearts and filling it with date ideas, fond memories, compliments, and maybe even a few cheesy pick-up lines for a laugh. Playing this nostalgic game can serve as a reminder of bubbly childhood memories while creating new ones with your loved one.

Teddy Bear Sprayed with Perfume or Cologne

Teddy bears are another beloved tradition for Valentine’s Day and always a great gift because you can never have too many stuffed animals. However, if you want to personalize your plushie you can spray it with your perfume or cologne so your loved one can hug it close and think of you when they’re missing you. Just make sure that you don’t add too much so that your valentine doesn’t start choking before they can say “Aww.”
