One of the simple one is to just cut the top off, fill with wax and a wick, and create a candle. You can leave the label on for extra decoration of remove it and etch the glass.

Give a plant instead of cut flowers. If you have some plants you can make cutting from give a gift from your own yard this year. Cut flowers are nice but they only last so long while a plant for the house or garden can create a lasting reminder of your love.

There are many web sites out there with great ideas like The Blue Chair which has a listing of 50 really cool recycled valentine gifts you can make.

So have a happy and loving Valentine's Day and don't forget Mother Earth when celebrating.
