I was going through my Tightwad Gazette this week and came upon some of the author's (Amy Dacyczyn) frugal ideas for Valentine gifts. Some of these sound like fun!
Bake a batch of heart shape cookies
Give a home made coupon for a massage
Cut a heart shape into a pink eraser and stamp hearts on a piece of construction paper to use as a place mat for your littlest Valentines
Pick a bouquet of winter branches and tie a red or pink ribbon around it for a centerpiece. Around here the only ones that are available are pine branches, so I would use a pink ribbon. You could stamp the ribbon with red hearts from your home made eraser heart.
Write a poem to express your love.
