“It’s not a real holiday…” “I don’t need Valentine’s Day to show her I love her!” “It’s all so commercial…”
We’ve heard it all before, year after year, with the inevitable approach of February 14th. But who said that going against the grain has to mean doing nothing? Here are a few ideas that will keep your effort to a minimum, help you avoid being cliché, and still have you ready with a gift from the heart on that special day.


It might sound obvious, but it’s true. The key to a successful Valentine’s Day is to get started early. Why? Well, it will keep you from stressing out, panicking on February 13th, ending up with a last-minute gift that cost too much or one that is clearly an afterthought. We recommend having your first brainstorming session in mid-January. You might even surprise yourself with the ideas you conjure up.

Thinking about a Valentine’s Day gift early makes planning a cinch, saves you money and energy (along with shipping fees), and, should you decided to go out, you’ll still have plenty of reservation options available. Taking the time to plan in advance will mean that there’s no shortage of ways to show your husband, wife, girlfriend or boyfriend that you care and you won’t have to break the bank to do it.


Regardless of how your other half feels about Valentine’s Day, you’re caught in the crosshairs. If you overdo it, you look like someone who’s given in to all the marketing mumbo jumbo. If you don’t, you run the risk of disappointing your special someone, leaving them feeling a bit like Dewey from Malcolm in the Middle.

So what to do? Your gesture doesn’t have to be big or expensive to be meaningful. Why not start things off with a few free Hooray Hero products, like customizable love coupons or personalized wallpaper to surprise your significant other?

Flowers? Beautiful, but don’t last long. Chocolate? Potentially delicious, but abundantly lame. Perfume? Wonderful, if you get the right one, but it’s still pretty cliché.

This year, why not consider an original, custom-made Valentine’s Day gift instead? Like our personalized Love Book for couples!
