    It ain't money making if you don't spend money on it ice.
    Make your own card with one of your fab. poems, I'm 100% positive it will be more appreciated than a shop card.
    It shows that you care enough to make an effort for someone.
    Me I try to tell my friends and family I love then as much as I can.
    I've lost a few so have come to realise that next valintines may be too late.
    Lets live valentines day every day and spread the love.
    :love::love::love::love::love::love::love::love::love::love:

    Hug at least one person every day!!!!!!

    :yes: I agree - boycott material items on Valentines Day and make it all about the ones you love.

    Have a candlelight dinner with your kids. Put your true feelings on paper for your SO - let them know that you still get butterflies when you're with them. Give your wife a pedicure - draw your husband a bubble bath.

    Make it a day to do little things for those you love.

    Whether immaterial or material, it's the suprise factor that re-sparks the engine of relational grind.

    Since this is the first Valentines I have had with someone, my wife, since my first wife back in 1991, I wanted this one to be special and original and my wife deserved it, cause it was her first time with someone since about my time as well. I had a ring made especially for her, 24k ring with a 1/4 carat diamond princess cut with ruby (birthstone/gemstone color) hearts on each side with diamond shavings wrapped around the hearts. Plus gave her a bracelt with XOXO's the O's are diamonds and a Diamond pendant, 15lb chocalate heart, box of creamy chocalates, 4 e-cards, 2 orginal cards made by me with poems by me, 4 dz red/wh mixed roses and when she woke, she woke to a bed full of rose petals. Just thought I shared that with you all, cause it was a wonderful day, beforehand I couldnt stand V-day...my wife makes all that more exciting.
