It’s almost time for America’s favorite Hallmark holiday – Valentine’s Day! We’ve been scouring everywhere for ideas to create just the right VIBE!. We know you probably are too, so we thought we’d share some slightly different ideas we’ve found that you can use to make Valentine’s Day special for your favorite affection! From the outrageous to the simple, there’s something here for everyone.
- A romantic getaway! Destination: Paris!
You can never go wrong with a relaxing trip for you two to spend some quality time together. Why not venture off to the most romantic city in the world, Paris! The beautiful Hotel Sezz Paris offers cozy and minimalistic luxury with 26 spacious rooms. For the month of February, they’re offering rose petals, a ½ bottle of Veuve Clicquot champagne and sweets in your room upon arrival in addition to a limousine tour of the city!
- Sweetheart Cake Pops!

- Valentine’s In A Box!
Is your sweetie going to be far away on the big day? Don’t worry, you can still send him/her a valentine in a box. Go to the store, and get a balloon, some macaroni and cheese, a movie and two candles and a bag of chocolate Hershey kisses. Put them all in a box with a note that explains how much you will miss being with them on Valentine’s Day, but this is what you’d do if you were together. The balloon represents your decorations. Ask them to blow it up. It should have a cute message on it. Heart shaped balloons with sweet messages are easy to find this time of year. The Macaroni and candles are for a candle lit dinner, (you can substitute any kind of boxed food), and a movie you know you’d like to watch if you were cuddled up together, and then fill the extra space in the box with Hershey’s chocolate kisses. They have several kinds now so be sure to select his or her favorite.
- Fun at the Office!
Many people don’t often think you can mix Valentine’s Day and work together without getting awkward, but that’s far from the truth. If you have a few chefs in the office, a fun activity would be to bring heart shaped food items to work for everyone to share such as lasagna or pancakes or even hamburgers. You can even turn it into a game, awarding the most creative idea with a gift bag or gift card from a popular restaurant!
- Go Love Postal!
We ran across this idea and found it to be creative, simple and fun! Buy your Valentine’scard now and mail it out to Loveland, Colorado for extra special treatment. Your card will be postmarked LOVEland, Colorado and it will also be hand-stamped with a unique four line poem.
The Loveland Chamber of Commerce heads up this yearly romance project with cards going to all 50 states and over 100 foreign countries annually.
It’s simple. Just enclose your pre-addressed, pre-stamped Valentine’s card in a larger envelope and mail to: Postmaster, Attn: Valentines, Loveland CO 80537
You can also send it to postmasters of these cities too:
- Valentine, Texas 79854
- Valentine, Nebraska 69201
- Kissimmee, Florida 32741
- Loving, New Mexico 88256
- Bridal Veil, Oregon 97010
- Romance, Arkansas 72136
We hope you will be inspired to do something unique and different, and remember there’s nothing wrong with your sweety’s favorite flowers and a bottle of chic new perfume or cologne. Perhaps Calvin Klein’s most recent fragrance “Beauty” would be a hit with its sensual undertones of calla lily, jasmine and warm musk.
We’d love to hear your ideas too! Either way we are sending Valentine’s wishes from the VIBE Agency straight to you!
