Say “I love you” in a unique way on Valentine’s Day with help from a few mason jars and tea light candles. Choose a message to express your love, such as:
- Love is patient
- Love is kind
- Our love endures
Put one word on each mason jar using a permanent marker, vinyl stickers or heat-resistant labels. Tie some ribbon around the tops of the jars, put tea lights in the bottom and light them just before you sit down to dinner to create a cozy atmosphere.
Nuts About You Valentine Jar

If your sweetheart loves to snack on nuts, a jar full of his or her favorites can be a welcome Valentine’s Day surprise.
Find a fancy jar at a craft store, and get silly with a creative label playing on the theme of how “nuts” you are about each other. Add some embellishments, glue the label to the jar, and fill it up with a mix of your sweetheart’s favorite nutty snacks.
It’s a healthier idea than candy, and it adds a little humor to the day!

If you’re really running low on time, printable wall art can come to your rescue. Do a quick internet search for letter art or a suitable heart-themed design, and either print it out yourself or have it printed up at a local copy shop. Find an attractive frame, and present it to your sweetheart as a reminder of your unfailing devotion.
When you put your heart into a Valentine’s Day gift, it doesn’t matter whether it took you minutes or months to put together. What matters is showing how much you care with a personal message of love.
