- What to give for Valentine’s Day?
- What if you are not in a relationship at this time?
- How much to spend?
- How to avoid a cliche?
Somehow Valentine’s Day gifts for home are less tacky than hearted chocolate boxes for your girl. They seem to be less attached to one person and more symbolic of love as a concept. To me Valentine’s Day is not about expensive gifts. Let humor be your friend. Part of being romantic is to make someone smile. If you choose a painting as a Valentine’s Day gift or a beautiful wall art piece, chances are they are going to stick, literally (I mean on the wall).
But because many people still prefer dinner parties, let’s start right there
For romantic dinner at home
Set up the table. It does not have to be in the dining room. Use clues, such as door signs and stickers leading to the decorated dinner table. Use table scattered hearts to decorate your table. Bring more romance with wine glasses with candles. Get ready for desert with colorful cake cases and toppers. Finish it up with a picture to remember.

If you can’t say it, write it
If you want to say something and words are difficult for you put it on paper. I like blank cards or better yet something that has personal, custom vibe.
It’s fair to say, if you can, make something yourself. We live in a highly disposable time, so your gift will have more chances to be remembered if you put an effort making it. What if you are not good at making things?
6. Little Vintage Hearts
Unique pictures with hearts and personalized words within each vary in size and colors. It can be free standing or wall mounted. The handwritten message can be written underneath the hearts as well. The picture is signed and dated in bottom right corner and gift wrapped. It has a white or black deep box style frame and it could be freestanding or wall mount.Price varies from $72-$160.

If the walls could talk
Choose a gift for home such as wall decorations that are beautiful and unique. You can make it into a fun and easy project to do together with little effort of using hammer and nails. It can be a painting, a wall brooch or even a cabinet knob. They are going to stick. Literally.
7. Rose Wall Brooch
This wall decoration will make a statement for any room or a bathroom. It works with many colors or over light or white background. The set of three roses with each having the hole in the back for hanging. for more information click here
Keep it simple
In this complicated world, nothing makes people smile more than a reference to something familiar and nostalgic, such as childhood years. Warm their heart with a naive and primitive gift. Don’t be afraid to express yourself with your gift. It can be silly, goofy or childish just to remind your loved one (or yourself) that life should not be taken so seriously.
8. For MY Darling
Naive and charming, this gift could be for anyone with a big heart or a great sense of humor. It reminds of the nostalgic younger times. For more information click here
Choose romantic art
Love Autumn Rain
9. Love Autumn Rain
Painterly and truly romantic. This is original watercolor, painted using the very best materials. (Daniel Smith watercolors on Ampersand Aquabord.) Layers and layers of transparent colors are used creating a gorgeous finished piece. The web never does it justice, it really is lovely in person. For more information click here.
Add Illuminating Surprise
10. Dance and Embrace Spirit
Hidden inside these inconspicuous-looking white pillar candles is a bronze sculpture that’s only revealed as the wax burns away. While it may be tempting to hold a marathon candle burning session for a more immediate reveal, the candles’ mysterious charm revolves around not being antsy: slowing down to reflect and to savor each moment as the candle burns gradually and the figure, slowly but surely, emerges from its waxy encasement.

If you are not in the relationship at this time it is still in your power to share your love with others. Open your heart to children, parents, friends, neighbors or total strangers! Make random gifts. You will see how much happier you will be!
