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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
