Valentines Day is moving nearer and by now I’m sure you all would have planned something awesome. So, for people who were very busy with their routine life and could not make time for making the day special, here are a few last minute valentine ideas great ideas to make it memorable in the countdown.

Last minute valentine ideas

Let’s start with the candles:


  • Just as I saw these simple candles; an idea struck me and I suddenly bought them. I searched for romantic and love quotes on Google and found one wonderful quote that well suited my candles. I then simply printed and transferred the quote to each candle with vinyl sheet and there don’t they look lovely now? : )
  • These candles are a very romantic gift for Valentine’s Day.

  • I wanted to make a magnet for quite a long time and it just suddenly happened that on my last visit to Walmart I just randomly bought magnets. Now I was surfing through my stuff and thought of making something with foam and there the magnet heart came to my mind.

  • This is the simplest thing to make. Just cut and glue the stack of hearts together. You can use any color and any number of hearts depending upon how thick you want it. I used 3 hearts. Then glue the magnet and beads on the back and front and leave it to dry. I used white glue as it dries transparent.

  • I made 2 hearts. One saying “I love you” and the other has our names on it. Both the hearts look great together for last minute valentine ideas.

  • Make an easy and instant bookmark for your book worm Valentine. A bookmark is something that will last forever if your valentine loves to read books. Whenever he/she will be reading a book, the bookmark will remind them of you.
  • Draw a template on a piece of paper like the one on the right and cut it. Now trace the half piece on both sides. In this way you will have equal sides.

  • Now cut some hearts from a patterned paper and glue them over. You can use hearts and red color papers. There is a whole lot of paper variety to choose from everywhere these days.
  • Make a simple braid three parts with colors of your choice. I have used red, orange and off-white. Punch a hole at the top of the bookmark and pass it through.

  • Finally make boundaries using thread in the shape of hearts and your bookmark is ready. Give your heart bookmark.

  • Finally the greeting card that is made with love tags. Cut cards into any shape you like. Here I have cut black and red cards into tag shape. Cut a pattern that you like from a paper and glue it over the card.
  • For the out-line use golden ribbon and glue it at the back of the tags to reveal just a thin layer.

  • I crafted the “L” with buttons, the “O” thread and hearts inside, “V” with nylon net ( just cut scraps of nylon net and glue the ends to the card, the shape will automatically be formed) and “E” is simply card that is glued over.
  • A complete buttoned card looks like this. If you wanna give it a try for last minute valentine ideas.

  • Finally decorate it with ribbon flowers, cut-out hearts, buttons and any accessory you like.
  • Glue the tags over the greeting card.

  • Here are two different looks of the Tag-Card. Which one do you like better? : )
  • Finally write all that you want inside; it would be a great idea to write your journey with him in the form of a poem, or a quote that defines your relationship.

I bought these candles from a thrift store nearby..
