This year, don’t go for cliché, tried-and-tested gifts; instead, find something inspired from our list of unusual Valentine’s Day gift ideas.
1. Compose a Song
For those of you with musical talent, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to showcase your skills for the one you love. If you put your heart and soul into it and compose a song especially for her, it will mean a lot more than an expensive watch or handbag. Besides, you just might compose the next big hit! Don’t hold back. Discover your inner musician and let your love be the muse for your composition. This will be one of the best Valentine’s Day gifts you can give your special lady. After all, how many women can claim that they had a love song composed just for them?
2. Design a Treasure Hunt
Design a stimulating treasure hunt for your significant other this Valentine’s Day. Write a series of love notes, with clues that lead to one of your favorite hangouts or to a surprise gift. Hide them in different places, such as under the bed, on the fridge door and in her work bag. You could even include locations that are memorable to her, as well as important to the two of you as a couple. Put on your thinking cap and plan the route and clues carefully. Make sure that the messages and signs on your notes are challenging enough to keep her intrigued, but not so difficult as to be indecipherable. You can end with a great finale that leads her to the place where you first met. This will ensure that your Valentine’s Day is like no other.
3. Design a Personalized Coupon Booklet
Shopping coupons are popular because of the discounts and special offers that they provide, but you can reinvent the concept to make this Valentine’s Day special. Get creative and gift your lady love a coupon booklet that grants her special privileges. From doing the laundry for a week to making dinner one evening, there are a range of household chores you could offer to take up. Your booklet could also include activities like a massage, a picnic, or a bubble bath. What’s great about this idea is that it’s a gift that literally keeps giving, as she can redeem the coupons anytime she likes! You can be sure that the warmth and love of this Valentine’s Day will linger long after the day has passed.
4. Discover Your Artistic Flair
Nothing can be more flattering to a woman than to be the inspiration for creative genius. Express your creative streak by making a special work of art and turning it into a unique Valentine’s Day gift. It doesn't matter whether you try your hand at sculpture, pottery, painting, or glasswork; what matters is the emotion you want to convey. While you may not be a Michelangelo or a Picasso, your effort will be appreciated. Of all the gifts you have given her, this will be the one that she displays with most pride!
5. Motivate her with an Inspirational Calendar
Create a calendar with motivational quotes to help her achieve her goals and stay focused.

Show her that you believe in her ability to achieve every goal, by gifting her a personalized calendar of motivational quotes this Valentine’s Day.
