This will remind your favorite someone where you two started this incredible journey that you are on and how far you have come along the way. The first thing that you will need to do is to find a picture of the two of you from as close to the time that you first met as possible. You will also want a current photo of you and your sweetie for this gift. The optimum size for these photos will be 5 by 7. This is a size of picture that will make it easy to find a frame that can sit on a dresser or even on a desk at work. An inexpensive picture frame that folds and will hold two pictures can be picked up at your local dollar store. The frames that are available at these stores are surprisingly nice and will save you a lot of money on this Valentine's Day gift.

If you are one of those people who always seems to be able to express themselves perfectly with words, then this is the perfect choice of the best valentine's day gifts for you. Sit down at your computer and type out a letter or maybe even a poem that tells your perfect someone exactly what they mean to you. Choose a font that looks like handwriting. This will make your gift shine. You can pick up a pack of pretty paper that contains 5 to 10 sheets for next to nothing. Either a paper that has a beautiful border or maybe one that looks like old parchment would work great for this. Print your writing out on the paper you have purchased. Find in your keepsakes something that really symbolizes the two of you as a couple. It could be a flower that you both love or maybe even a ticket stub from a concert that you both attended. Place your letter in a frame with the keepsake on top of it but angled down in the corner so that your letter is readable. A Valentine's Day gift from the heart will mean more then anything all the money in the world could buy.
