Frugal Valentine's Day Ideas - Part 2

Yesterday we looked at frugal ways to spend the day with your significant other. Today, I have some Valentine gift ideas that will not break the bank!

  • Burn a CD of the songs that mean the most to you as a couple.
  • Make Valentine cut-out cookies and decorate them. (This could also be a project you could do together with your Valentine!)
  • Write out on slips of paper different reasons why you love that person, wrap them around mini candy bars and present them in a pretty jar. Whenever they eat a piece of candy, they also get to read a special note!
  • Pick out a really nice picture of you two and put it in a cute frame.
  • Make a collage of the words "I LOVE YOU" printed out in multiple languages.
  • Create your own chocolate dipped strawberries.
  • Give your Valentine a rose plant. They are cheaper than fresh cut roses and last longer. (That is, unless you have the same luck as I do when it comes to houseplants!)
What is the most creative gift you have received for Valentine's Day?

Great ideas! I'm having trouble coming up with something for Tom. I would normally bake him something that he likes, however, he's trying to lose weight so that's not the best idea this year.
