We can't believe Valentine's Day is next Saturday - it feels like 2015 is just flying by! If you, like so many, are experiencing one seriously busy winter, you might not have your Valentine's Day ducks (or should we say hearts) in a row. You know you should skip the traditional flowers and chocolate combination and do something more original this year, but don't have the time to come up with a creative gift idea. Don't fret - we've compiled a list of clever, easy, and fun Valentine's Day gifts you can try!

1. Mug It Out - Trying to treat a coffee or tea lover? Make them a mug! This is such a sweet and simple idea. Fill your mug with candy or their favorite type of tea or coffee to make this gift extra special.

2. Message In A Pillow - Not only is this pillow cover really cute, you can leave secret messages for your partner in it! A+ for creativity!

3. Carved Candle - Keep the flame alive with this super sweet candle. This gift is sure to have the traditional romantics swooning.

5. Boozy Bouquet - Men can be difficult to shop for. If you're not sure what to get your man this year, why not try this manly bouquet? Instead of flowers, your bundle can consist of mini alcohol bottles, cigars, shot glasses, candies, hot sauce - whatever you think he'd enjoy most!

6. Love Birds - Show your sweetheart that you two are birds of a feather! Create this cute and charming love birds diorama!

7. Make A Card - It might seem like a cheesy idea, but sometimes a homemade card is one of the best things you can give! It's a handmade gift that you can write your feelings on. This is one traditional gift that'll never go out of style!
