Frugal Valentine Gifts

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.
