My mother's birthday was on Valentine's Day that made the day extra special. She passed away 10 years ago on Palm Sunday and I miss her so much. Every year I try to make a floral arrangement for my parents' tombstone. I am in poor health so some years I haven't been able to do that. However, I do keep an arrangement on their stone. I try to honor both of my parents in that way. By far, she was my greatest Valentine's Day gift always will be!

anything home baked

Our son! I always said he was my best ever gift, born on Feb. 6. And mys husband always said our son was the best gift I had ever given him!

My favorite gift was a giant stuffed white ape with a box of chocolates and a pendant with two joined hearts. This was from my terrific husband.

My best Valentine's Day gift was in 1999, when my mother came home from the hospital, well again, after a scary episode with blood chemical imbalances and low white cell count.

for an idea. I would love to go for a hike in the snow. Then end up at a cabin with a wood fireplace and cuddle with my hunny.Have a wonderful supper with chocolate orb dessert and spend the evening just being with eachother and forget the rest of the world for a while.

My best gift is my daughter (of course, she wasn't delivered until the following November...)

Being Single Valentine's Day is not a very special day as a Single person usually doesn't have that special person to send a bouquet of flowers to you or take you out to a super special restaurant for dinner but what is important is to be a blessing to someone else My idea of and awesome Valentine's Day gift is to go and pick up maybe a bouquet of flowers some kind of special treat such as a word find or crossword puzzle book then go to the nearest nursing home or assisted living and ask for a person who does not receive any visitors and surprise them with your special purchases To see a smile come across someone's face who has not had a visitor let alone any kind of special treats makes the whole day worthwhile Even take the gift to a shut in neighbor or lonely friend orRead More just a stranger This is my idea for my best Valentine's Day gift idea

I would like to have an intimate dinner with my husband at home, with candles, and a cheesecake slice to share.

The best gift I got was coming home to a clean house and taken on a weekend getaway

The best gift is enjoyable time with someone you love. And chocolate.

The best Valentine's gift that I ever received was every year my dad would have a single red rose delivered to me at work.

The best Valentine's gift I ever received was a babysitter that allowed me to have an overnight date with my hubby. This isn't as easy as it sounds with three kids close in age with the middle child having a high functioning form of autism

Apple pie yum. Every year since high school my husband has gotten me long stemmed yellow roses, he is the best ever valentines gift.

The best Valentine's gift I received was half a heart shaped peanut butter cup. I made a whole one for my husband and he cut it in half and said he'd keep the other half of our heart..

Years ago I crocheted a filet heart blanket in burgundy with red satin ribbons laced between the squares for my husband. Twenty years later it is a seasonal tribute to our love, which marked 40 years Sun., Jan 24

The best Valentine's Day gift I ever received was a dozen long-stemmed roses from the love of my life, with a heart-shaped box of chocolates and a little teddy bear holding a red heart. That may not sound original, but we'd found each other in middle age, and it was the first Valentine's Day I ever really celebrated. I was thrilled.

I made a red white Heart designed quilt for my mother.

I made heart shaped gummies from jello and plain gelatin.

I melted fresh chocolate and dipped long stem strawberries, then hardened the chocolate. The I wrote an original poem for my Valentine.

i received a hand made card from my husband, beautiful artwork and poem.

I love warm knit booties to keep my feet warm

Honestly, the best Valentine's gift I've ever received was from my children who dipped their hands in paint and placed them together to form a heart on the front of a cloth bag and called MommaJo's "Handbag". I absolutely loved it and still have it in their keepsake box. That was 20 yrs ago. The best gift I've given would be to my ex when I took a surprise picnic lunch to him at work. Unfortunately, he'd called in sick that day I found him at his mistress' house. Not the fairytale ending I'd hoped for, to say the least. I'm still hoping for the ultimate gift...maybe winning this contest will change my mind about this particular holiday. It's not just for lovers, ya know.

My favorite Valentines gift was a massage certificate. The best gift i've given was a heart shaped monster cookie. I made it in a huge heart cake pan wrote I love you on it-he loved it!!

How ironic! A giveaway! I never win anything, but for Valentines a few years ago, I decided to enter a radio drawing. Wouldn't you know it, I won! My prize was a gift bag full of candy and various romantic notions such as massage oils, rose petals, candles, red net pantyhoses, etc. Best Valentines present I have ever received!

I think the greatest Valentine's Day gift I had ever received was a homemade card from my husband kids with "coupons" from the kids for things I could ask from them (ie. "Coupon good for one back massage" "Coupon good for one night of doing dishes without any argument")

I'm a sucker for classics. Flowers and chocolates are my favorite Valentine's Day gifts--hands down!

The best thing I've ever been given was a mini character (okay, it was Gir from Invader Zim) coin purse. It totally distracted me from the actual gift-- the necklace inside. Though, I would love to get flowers. I've never gotten any of those before.

I love flowers on Valentine's Day, and I usually just give sweet little homemade gifts or cards. Once the holidays are over, you're just too exhausted to plan (and pay) for an elaborate gift!

Last Valentine's, I made my boyfriend one of those card deck books where you write 52 Things I Love About You. He loved it so much he still has it and keeps it by his computer. He was so touched.

It's very old-school, but honestly you can't beat a nice dinner out - especially since it gives me an excuse to get dressed up. ;)

I like to give my daughters some fun little treats like candies or stuffed animals. The best gift to receive (aside from jewelry of course) are chocolate covered strawberries :)

I'm not really into Valentine's day myself, but friends of mine and myself have given each other mix CDs or made playlists on Spotify to share with each other in the past. Nice little treat for the music lovers in your life and you don't have to spend a dime!

I like to bake something ridiculously chocolatey for my loved ones on Valentine's Day. This year I'm thinking flourless chocolate cake or some kind of amazing brownie...

I don't usually give gifts for Valentine's Day (aside from store-bought cards), but I have my eye on a few of these. My best idea up until now has been to make festive criss-cross cookies!

Once a friend got me a book that she'd just bought a copy of so we could read it together. I loved that idea and it was lots of fun to read the book at the same time.

My father once made my mom's favorite dessert, creme brulee, from scratch. He even bought the the special torch!

A handmade card and chocolates! They're both very sweet.

Flowers! I can't get enough of them... even if they are short-lived :)

I prefer gifts where we can do something together, like going out to dinner or to a show. Since events are hard to wrap, I like to make handmade cards or printables to present what the event is. It really adds something special.

My favorite Valentine's gift was a homemade dinner with all of my favorite foods!

The best gift I've ever received for Valentine's Day was a handmade storybook full of drawings and memories.

I got an iPad for Valentine's Day one year. It wasn't the most sentimental gift I've received, but I was a happy camper!

The best Valentine's Day gift I've received was actually from my best friend! She put together a little spa care package in a Mason jar with nail polish, a face mask, and little things like that. It's good to celebrate all kinds of love on Valentine's Day, not just the romantic kind!

These ideas are great! I never know what to get my boyfriend, so i'm so glad I found this list!

Wow! I love these so much. That heart pie looks AMAZING.

Thanks for the above wonderful ideas. Perfect presents indeed! Valentine's Day is fast approaching, when good sons, friends, boyfriends and spouses everywhere will be purchasing the women in their lives presents to celebrate the event.
