How to Give Valentines to Friends

Save

It's fun to acknowledge Valentine's Day (February 14) by remembering your friends and co-workers. With a little advance planning, your Valentine remembrances will be greatly appreciated but not too hard on your budget.

Things You'll Need

  • Craft Supplies
  • Rubber Stamps
  • Valentine's Day Greeting Cards
  • Address Books
  • Flowers
  • Postage Stamps
  • Rubber stamps
  • chocolates
  • Make a list of all the friends to whom you want to give valentines.

  • Decide what form your valentines will take: greeting cards, e-greetings, cookies, candy, flowers or special gifts.

  • Purchase greeting cards for out-of-town friends at least 10 days before Valentine's Day so that you can find a good selection. Mail them early so they will arrive in time for the holiday.

  • Order flowers at least 10 days ahead of Valentine's Day to be sure you can get the arrangement you want. Have them delivered on February 14.

  • Buy chocolates 10 days ahead and have them mailed from the store to the recipient, or take them with you to be delivered to friends personally.

  • Make cookies the night before Valentine's Day to be given to friends the next day. Bring a platter of Valentine's Day cookies to work to share with co-workers, or make up small plates of cookies for close friends and wrap them in cellophane with a red bow. Add a card with a personal message.

  • Send e-greetings on Valentine's Day or the day before. These are free and can be sent to anyone who has a computer and Internet access.

  • Give a single rose to special friends. Choose the color based on the sentiment you wish to convey (see "How to Choose the Right Color Roses to Send" in Related eHows).

  • Save extravagant or very personal gifts for special friends and deliver them personally and privately.

Tips & Warnings

  • Always add a personal note to greeting cards.
  • It's in very poor taste to pass out valentines to friends while other people you know - who aren't getting them - are watching. Try to be discreet or you may hurt the feelings of people you often associate with or see at work.
  • If you have time, make your own unique greeting cards. These are always appreciated.
  • Avoid handing out mushy or suggestive valentines to casual friends of the opposite sex.
  • Before you declare your undying love in a greeting card, be sure the recipient feels the same way you do, or you could find yourself in a very awkward situation.
