You also might consider a charitable donation FROM THE HEART, either to your house of worship, a medical foundation, youth organization or homeless shelter. In keeping with the Valentine theme, you can donate to an organization for problems of the heart (physical or psychological). Arrange for the charity to send a simple card indicating that the donation was made in the recipient's honor.
