7) At the end of the evening, hand your mate a love letter that tells him or her how wildly attracted you are to them and how much they mean to you.
8) Finally, carry the Valentine's spirit over to the next morning. This is an inexpensive project, but it will create a memory that lasts forever. Buy a dozen uninflated balloons. On 12 small pieces of paper, write down the traits that make your mate special. For example," You have the most beautiful brown eyes," "You light up a room with your smile" or "I love your sense of humor." Stuff the pieces of paper into the balloons and then blow up the balloons. Put them in your mate's car. Then on the windshield leave a long needle and a note reading, "The only way you'll be able to get into your car is to pop each balloon and read the message inside that tells you why you are so special to me!"
Your mate will be driving to work with a smile on his face, knowing that he has to be the luckiest person alive to have you in his life.
