Scavenger Hunt

You can start your Valentine's Day experience early with a scavenger hunt. Get your love a few small gifts and one big gift. Package them up and hide them all around your home. Include clues to where they can find the next gift in each package. To make it an even more romantic part of your Valentine's Day, pick up a stationary set and so you can write mini love letters and place them with each gift.
