February is getting at close and so is Valentine's day! And when it is, I know you won't slide the chance to give something sweet and do romantic experience with your lover nor to someone you want to show your affection.

Create your own and customize

"It's the thought that counts" is what they always say. Think of something he would like to have in which you think you can do on your own. Let's say your partner like chocolates very much. It's too plain to just give her chocolate that she can just buy at store. Why don't you add some spice into it, customize it and experiment.


1. Buy a bar of chocolates you can afford. It doesn't have to be her favorite brand of chocolate. Melt the chocolates and put it in a molder which could be a heart shape, shapes in a form of letter, etc. Put it in a fridge. Easy!
2. Use the melted chocolate as a dip. Then just buy her favorite fruits that mix really good with chocolate dip.

Be a Cook for the Day

Bring out your chef personality and cook his/her favorite dish. Just like they say, "The way to man's heart is through his stomach". Yet so as girls. Well, everybody does, I guess. You won't have to worry if you do not know how to cook since recipes are always on the line(online). A little google and follow the instructions is the key to it.

It would be best if you both help on cooking at least you learn at the same time and have a delicious diner afterwards.

How lovely would it be to share not only on the food that you both had worked on but also the happiness and memory while cooking the dishes you would love to share with each other.

Walk in a beach

Walk in the beach and have fun conversing with each other or go somewhere you know you both can enjoy. Don't bring her on a place where you can't see anything special and a place you usually go. Being together alone is sweet and romantic. Note: Always make her see that you are prepared for the day and you know where to go and what to do. That is a special day for you so she's expecting that you have prepared special for her.

Special Message Card

Of course, the Special Valentines Card. There are a lot at stores and you can also create one too. You can write your own thoughts to her in a poetic way or whichever you are comfortable with. Some women find this cheesy but I know they love it because women wants to know every thing about you especially on what you think of her and how much you love her. What you should put in the card are the things you don't casually say and things you haven't told her yet.

The things you will need to create your own card is only a nice paper where you can write and creativity.

Personalized Couple Things

Personalized couple mugs are the usual one and even the couple t-shirts. That is sweet actually which means you have something that you both only have to use. You can make your personalized couple mugs and shirts in a printing service business. This is not expensive especially if you create your own design. They provide you the plain mug or shirt then you provide your own design.

Cartoonize your couple picture

If you have the gifted hands to draw your picture, then do it and frame it. Include the date when you draw it so it can be remembered.

However, if you do not know how to draw, I have a very cool idea for you in which you can also create a cartoon out of your picture. Go to and just upload your picture, choose a cartoon style that you like and wait until it is completely downloaded. There are other apps that you can use in changing a picture into a creative one that can even be found in your mobile phones.

If you have a skill in using photo maker and editor like Photoshop or Corel, take a picture of her/him and use those special programs and transform the picture into cartoon.

The sample cartoonized picture on the right is not a couple picture but a result using Adobe Photoshop CS5.
