Creative Valentines Day Ideas

Updated on January 12, 2014

Creative Ideas for a Memorable Valentines Day

Creative and thoughtful Valentines gifts can go a long way to ensure long lasting romantic memories that remain fresh throughout the year.

It's easy to pick up a bouquet of flowers from the grocery store, a box of drug store chocolates, maybe a card and call it good. While your gesture will be appreciated, a well thought out, creative gift for Valentines Day will not only be enjoyed just on Valentines Day, but the memories will remain throughout the year.

You may have an idea of your own, or perhaps something here will aid you in creating a lasting Valentine memory.

Go On A Romantic Picnic

In The Living Room Or Any Other Cozy Room!

If it's snowing or just plain old cold outside, why don't you take your sweetheart on a picnic?

A picnic in the living room, that is, or any other comfortable, cozy room in the house. It's easy to create a romantic atmosphere when setting the scene for a cozy picnic. You could invest a little in a picnic basket filled with gourmet goodies and a bottle of wine. Or perhaps purchase a picnic basket and cook your own delicious romantic, picnic meal. Either way, create a setting in front of the fireplace, load the room up with lots of candles, put on some romantic music, throw out a blanket and some comfy pillows and you now have a picnic in the living room.

Not only have you hit a home run with a creative valentines gift, but with your investment in a picnic basket, you have also created a tradition to recapture that Valentine feeling through out the year!

Don't forget to tuck a little gift inside the picnic basket for your Valentine to unwrap. Need ideas? Keep reading!
