When we are in a relationship many times we wonder how to make Valentine's Day special, however, sometimes we run out of time or even ideas and we end up just going to a regular dinner, luckily in a good restaurant or even with a rush nonsense gift.
But if you really want to make this day memorable for your lover, try one or maybe few of these Valentine's day decorating ideas and gifts that will certainly help you express all your love to your other half!
---> Lovers Breakfast! <---What better way to begin a romantic day than a Love style breakfast?
It is so easy to do and so creative that is far one of the best Valentine's day ideas i have seen.
You can buy everything done except for the french toast with the heart shape, but again, they are so easy to make, simply cut the bread into a heart shape before starting to make the toasts, and that's it.
If you feel like baking, you can find the ingredients and tutorial by A.C.Moore here.
- Chocolate covered Strawberry hearts.
You can add to your delicious breakfast the most common lover's fruit: Strawberries!
There's magic with chocolate strawberries that makes them so tempting and unique, but if you can make them with a heart shape! Wow it will be even cuter and surprising!
This idea is from One Little Project. Here you can find the tutorial on how to make these delicious chocolate covered strawberries.

---> Easy DIY Wall Decor <---
1. Hearts vertical garland:
- Using 8×12 (standard size) card stock paper and cutting them in strips. Probably about 1 inch strips or 1 1/2 inch. Then just use a stapler. Super easy!! -
2. Post it Heart decor!
This fantastic idea from - Jen Muller, Live lives here - is probably one if the easiest way to surprise your other half! Make a heart shape with Post-its and write on each one a different reason why you love him or her! The person reading those beautiful notes will be so amazed and feel so much loved that will never forget this Valentine's detail from you!
---> Balloons! <---
Personally, I believe balloons are simply the best compliment to any gift! And there are so many ways to decorate with them that it will be illogical not to include balloons for this lovable celebration.
You can choose to give heart-shaped helium balloons (my favorite are foil ones), or you can make a beautiful arrangement with latex balloons to surprise your significant other in the room or any housing area like the living room where you can set a perfect date night :)
Here is a very special way to decorate a wall using latex balloons! You can make it even more special if you also include this fun game idea by Kim Byers | Celebration Shoppe.
The idea is to insert in each balloon a little paper with a message with different date night plans, here are some examples, but you know way better your other half so just include fun activities that both of you have enjoyed!
You can also use Letter-shaped balloons to make incredible decorations, make up words like XOXO and Be Mine and Love to create a beautiful setting with of course, even more heart shaped red or pink balloons to surprise your special other.
---> Love Mugs! <---
Mugs are a very traditional gift for Valentine's Day, you can find them in so many different styles, and with various wordings, however, there are some Mugs that are just different and eye catching! And today I wanted to share with you these precious mugs - Meepples - by Julia Eve.
