Unique Valentines Gift Ideas

Coming up with unique Valentines gift ideas for the same people each year can become a bit of a struggle.

This year instead of the usual create something special. A great place to start to get your creative juices flowing is a local craft store.

Unique Valentine Gift Ideas

In Vancouver there's the craft store Michael's that has a number of locations around the lower mainland. They have all sorts of paper, photo frames, stencils, stamps, material for scrap-booking and greenery for you to make your own unique Valentine arts and crafts.

Another one is Urban Source which is a tiny hole in the wall store on Main Street. They have all kinds of scavenged materials like recycled tubes, pieces of glass and bits of ribbon. With a little bit of imagination you'll be able to come up with a Valentines gift that is truly one of a kind and unique.

Here are some ideas to get you started with your own unusual Valentines gift ideas

  • One unique Valentines gift would be a hand written poem. Use the letters of the persons' name as the first letter in each line.
  • Coupons that can be cashed in at anytime are quick and easy to create. Think of something that the person you want to give to would really appreciate. How about a coupon to get out of that dreaded household chore.
  • Create corny matching t-shirts with your picture on them. Even if you only wear them to bed, they’ll make you smile.

Remember the whole idea is come up with something fresh so feel free to add your own flair.

Of course Valentines Day just wouldn't be the same without involving chocolate.

Instead of a Valentine's Day flower arrangement or flower bouquet why not a candy bouquet?

Pick up your sweeties favourite candy bars and some sucker sticks from a candy store. Glue the sticks to the candy bars by making a paste of icing sugar and a bit of water and arrange them in flower pot with some foam from the craft store.

Your valentine will feel special and appreciate the time and effort you have put in to creating something from the heart.
