Valentine's Day is just a few short weeks away and if you haven’t thought about gifts yet, it’s time to get your creative juices flowing.

Don’t have a clue what to get? Our recommendation is to skip the box of chocolates and opt for a thoughtful gift that will last much longer and will make your loved ones smile. 

Let your loved ones know that you adore everything about them this Valentine's Day (even the prickly parts!) with a cute little handmade planter with a succulent or cactus you’ve chosen for them. Or print out a few plant tags, stickers or cards that bring in a little nature and fun to a container you purchase from the nursery or store.

Below we're sharing a few more adorable and down-right hilarious gift ideas we were inspired by for Valentine's Day.
