  • Use an unusual topper to make it playful, whimsical, or cute.
  • While red is the color of Valentine’s day, pink hearts make it look like friendly love. This is perfect for friendship gifts, gifts for teachers, and gifts for the kiddos.
  • You really do not have to spend too much on Valentine’s day. Dainty gifts are also nice and are easy to transport, especially if you are going to present the gift while on a date outside the house.
