Valentine Card Ideas for a Boyfriend
Your boyfriend will cherish a homemade Valentine card. (valentine colour card image by Leonid Nyshko from

Don't give your boyfriend an impersonal, store-bought card for Valentine's Day. A homemade Valentine card demonstrates how much you love your boyfriend and how talented and creative you are. Only your imagination limits the kinds of Valentine card you can make.

Photo Collage Card

Assemble a collage of photographs of your boyfriend's favourite things. Include images of his family, his pets, his favourite band, a movie you saw together, his favourite food and, of course, you. Use photos of the two of you on a trip or doing something you both enjoyed. Use photo editing software to help you design the card, and print it out on a colour printer. Write a personal message on the inside of the card.

Video Card

Make a Valentine video card for your boyfriend. Write a personal Valentine message, one word at a time, on pieces of paper. Hold the papers up, one sheet at a time, in front of the video camera. Smile and blow kisses into the camera. Upload the video to a social networking or video-sharing website and send your boyfriend a link to the video so he can watch it on his cell phone or mobile device.

Coupon Card

Print a page of coupons for your boyfriend, redeemable for services. Make a coupon that lets him watch as much TV as he wants one night and a coupon he can redeem for his favourite meal, home-cooked by you. Include coupons for personal services, such as a car wash and a massage. Fold the coupons and present them as a Valentine card.

Candy Card

If your boyfriend likes candy, express your Valentine wishes with candy bars on poster board. Write a personal message and fill in the blanks with candy. For example, write "Be my" and glue a "Big Hunk" chocolate bar to the poster board. Write "I'll be your" and glue a package of "SweetTarts" to the poster board. Shop the candy aisle at the grocery store for inspiration.

Poem Card

Make your own version of a store-bought greeting card. Draw a picture on the front of folded cardstock. You don't have to be an artist to draw stick figures, hearts and flowers. Ask a friend to draw something for you if you're shy about using your own work. Write an original poem on the inside of the card. Your poem doesn't have to rhyme; a poem can consist of simple words from the heart. Draw inspiration for the card from your boyfriend, your relationship or a trip you've taken together.
