If you’re looking for something original to give your sweetheart this Valentines Day, you may want to consider doing something a little more individual this year. Although flowers and candy are also great (and welcome), you may want to add to the celebration of the day by composing some Valentines Day poems. Here are some ideas for creating the best poem for your loved one.
To begin with, you’ll want to decide whether you want to break the poem into sections, or if you want to give the whole written piece to your loved one with a present. You can compose a few short verses about how much your Valentine means to you, and present it with flowers instead of a card, or you can frame the verses and give it with chocolates or other gourmet candies. You can also separate the verses in the poem and use it as part of a Valentines Day treasure hunt; start in the bedroom by placing part of the poem near the bed, so that your loved one will see it when they wake up. You can also include a clue that will lead your partner to the next part of the house, in order to collect the second verse of the poem and more clues that will lead them to their Valentines gift.
Valentines day poems should be totally sincere, and should express exactly how you feel about your beloved. This means that your poems do not have to rhyme, and do not have to have a lot of fancy words. Your family will be able to sense the truthfulness, and this is the best gift of all. If you’re writing Valentines day poems for or with children, you may want to come up with a theme that will make the poems particularly original. For instance, if you’re working with children that are writing Valentines day poems for their parents, you can have them spell out the word ‘Mother’ or ‘Daddy’, and help them come up with an acrostic where each line begins with each of the letters in the word. Your ‘Valentines day poems’ can also just be affectionate notes to your parents, siblings, or friends letting them know how much they mean to you, and how happy you are to celebrate a day that is meant for spreading love with them.
