Cute and CLEVER Ways To Say I Love You

I love any excuse to tell my family and friends just how much they mean to me. But, being me, I just HAVE to mix things up! Giving a treat to say “I Love You” is wonderful, but if you can jazz it up with a clever saying and cute printable, it just puts that treat OVER THE TOP! Isn’t it fun to feel brilliant when gift giving, especially when someone else did all of the brain work for you? After all, us geniuses need to stick together! Time to share some of my favorite cute and clever ways to say “I Love You” from ideas submitted to IShare Printables!

Candy, shmandy. Today’s kids …okay, today’s kids love candy, but they will ALSO love getting their own tic-tac-toe game for Valentine’s day! Whether you print these for the entire classroom, or just your own little valentine, they will definitely be feeling the love!

4. Mini Valentine Popcorn Bags

Treats on Valentine’s Day don’t always have to be sweet! Download a free mini popcorn box, fill, and give! Better yet, prepare these for a family movie night and enjoy a little “together” time to show you care. Mmm..this has my mouth watering all over my key board!

5. Valentine Flags!

I believe there are two types of people in the world; fans of the movie “The Princess Bride” and people who haven’t seen it, yet :) If you know and wuv someone who is of the latter persuasion, why not wrap up a copy of the movie and add this little tag. They will WUV you FOWEVAH!

9. I’m a “SUCKER” For You

A little ingenuity goes a LONG way, especially when you are looking at what to hand out for a classroom of children! A package of Smarties (or Rockets, if you are Canadian, eh), a stick of gum, and some life savers, magically transforms into the coolest valentine ever! Add the adorable free printable tag, and you’re set! This is an idea that will really “take off”!

{Are you groaning at all of the bad puns, yet?}

13. “Owl” Always Love You

Cute and CLEVER Ways To Say I Love You

I have a thing for owls – it’s kind of a well-known fact among my friends and family. So, they can expect I’ll be somehow incorporating an owl into their Valentine’s cards this year. Since owls are super popular, right now, you could easily find a cute little owl trinket, attach this free printable card, and write a heartfelt little note of love inside. Then, you can pop it in the mail to ME and “Owl” love you forever ;)

14. Cupid Monster Bookmark/Pencil Topper

Cute and CLEVER Ways To Say I Love You

Finally, I can’t imagine a better gift to give, this Valentine’s Day, than to GIVE the gift of ‘clever’ to a child you love. Encourage them to read and write by attaching these adorable free printables to a new book, and/or notebook and pencil. You can’t get more clever than that!

I just know you are feeling cuter and clever-er than ever! Now, get downloading, printing, and giving! Your friends, family, and neighbors will certainly be feeling the love, and they will see you for the brilliant gift-giver you are :) Oh, and while you are being all BRILLIANT, stop by ALL of the IShare sites for even more inspiration!
