Hearts, roses and all things red

Ok, ok, so Valentine's Day is just another Hallmark creation and something I've never really been into (unless you count when I was in Primary School and got a "secret admirer" card from someone who's hand writing I could pick a mile off). But alas, I think I've fallen prey to all the advertising card and gift companies do for February 14th and am feeling like a Valentine's Day post is in order.
I've been keeping my eye on things in the blogs I read and in recent shopping trips and whether you've got $5 or $500 to spend (or even nothing!) check out just some of the great ideas that are out there for your special someone.

Items in the picture are:
Double initial necklace US$22 from Solomon Lane Jewellery on Etsy
Heart shape egg mould US$9 Fred Flare
Red spotted bra $22 Cotton On Body
Satchel bag $69.95 Sussan
Sweetheart compact mirror US$1.50 Forever21
Paper message flowers (free!) - instructions from Martha Stewart
"From the bottom of my heart" greeting card US$1.25 Minted
Heart tie US$31.75 Zazzle
Rose petals from your local florist (display them in a heart shape on the table with a candle in the middle and... voila! World's cheapest Valentine's centrepiece)
Moet & Chandon (prices vary) available at your local bottle shop
