With less than a week before Valentine's Day, one of the most ROMANTIC holidays of the year, more and more people are seeking new and thoughtful ways of saying I LOVE YOU besides flowers and candy.

I get it, every year trying to find new and innovative ways of showing you care and saying "I love you" is costly and exhausting. Understand, we all know that we show our love and affection throughout the year for our spouses or significant others, but for many Valentine's Day feels that there is a significance in your feelings based on the gift given. So now its time for you to think out of the box?

These fun gift ideas are sure to make you the talk of the town and the apple of your lover’s eye. Remember that gifts from the heart mean more than spending gobs of money on the mundane. Kick it up and have fun...Happy Valentine's Day!

Card in the Yard

Nothing screams I love you more than a 6’ x 4’ card placed in your front yard with accompanying smaller 'gifts' and schotkeys for good measure thrown in for fun. People will come to a slow crawl as they past your home wondering what have you done and then the ladies all swoon and the men get irate because your MAN took saying I love you to another dimension.
