What to do for Valentine's Day?!

yes yes valentines day is here, they say its supposed to be the most romantic day of the year...but let's face it, as much of a hopeless romantic as I am, it really does take quite a bit of effort to create romance.  I hate to admit it, but i'm really running out of ideas for what to get my bf this valentines day.  Having been with him for almost 7 years now, every special occasion had used up almost all my creative juices and i was in desperate need of something inspirational.  After searching on the internet for a while, I realized that i actually have never made the classic chocolate covered strawberries for tuen before.  Oh yea, tuen is my nickname for him cuz that means ass in chinese and he has a particularly fat butt lol, yea we r a weird couple like that XD.  Anyway, this year i really want to try making these for him.  But I want it to be something a little bit more complicated and personal than just chocolate covered strawberries.  So i googled around for a bit longer and finally found the perfect recipe.  Since he also loves cheesecake, i thought what else would be more amazing than cheesecake stuffed chocolate covered strawberries?! *drools* I am going to attempt this recipe and hope that i won't totally screw it up and end up having nothing to give him at all. ^^"

I will post pics after vday if my attempt was successful lol.  With just less than 2 days before valentine's day, i bet lots of people are ferociously searching for ideas like i am, so i thought i would put up some of the things i have made in the past. 

Heart shaped sugar cookies.  (Add a couple drops of your favorite food coloring and knead it into the dough for a pretty marble effect!)
Home made dinner.  Pay close attention to what he likes to eat and make that for him.  You cannot go wrong with this one.
Scrapbook.  You wouldn't believe this, but this one took me almost half a year to make.  I made each page of the album from scratch, and had quite a few pages, so that's why the long process....but a lot of pre-made albums are easily accessible too.  All you have to do is put pictures in!
Hand knitted scarf.  This one obviously also requires time to prepare, so this idea isn't for any last minute vday gift hunters. maybe next special occasion though? :D 
Lotto 649.  Hey don't laugh.  This may just be the present that he likes the MOST.  One time i threw in a few scratch and win tickets as a bonus present, i think he liked that more than main thing i got him.  Totally wth @@" but whatever makes them happy~

Have a Sweet Valentine's day everyone! Even if you have not found ur other half yet, go spend it with ur friends, maybe meet up with ur other single friends and look for some new targets >:D
