Creative Ways

Okay, I am not a fan of Valentines Day. I mean you should show those around you EVERY DAY how much they mean to you. But with that being said, I thought this was a fun article of creative ways to show those you love how much you care.

Six ways to say “I love you”

When you’re going out with a great person, it’s tempting to max out your credit cards on the biggest, shiniest, most see-how-much-I’m-into-you gift possible. But as most of us have learned from Valentine’s Day experiences, birthdays, and holidays past, the best gifts are rarely the priciest. Usually, they’re the most thoughtful. To that end, we’ve come up with six of the cutest, coolest, most thoughtful things that you can do for any special day to truly show how much you care.

1. Frame a mutual memento
Start with a simple picture frame and get ready to create some low-cost art that’s rich in sentimental value. No, you’re not giving your partner a picture of you, silly. What you need is a memento (just one — no collage skills necessary) from your first date or the time you met, like a matchbook from the restaurant, the receipt where she scrawled her number, a ticket stub from a movie, a brochure for a museum, or an invitation to the party where you two first locked eyes. Put it all together for a simple, sleek piece of art that’s extra-special for the two of you.
