Valentine's Day is the one day when friendship, love, and romance are actively celebrated all around the world.

As easy as it is to tell someone you love them, it's not always easy to find the perfect gift, so keep scrolling to find some perfect ideas for your Valentine this year!

#1. They say, the best way to a man's heart is through his stomach, and this girlfriend definitely followed those wise words.

Unfortunately, Domino's Pizza didn't exactly do the greatest job at making a heart-shaped pizza. But, like their message says, at least they tried!

#2. Nothing screams love quite like a basket of fried food from different fast food joints.

Those that clog their arteries together, stay together. Remember that the next time you want to go through the drive-thru.

#3. If you're wanting to make your own Valentine's day dessert, instead of buying one from the store, then feast your eyes on these delicious red velvet brownie bars.

Red Velvet Oreo Truffle Brownie Bars

INGREDIENTS

1 Duncan Hines box Red Velvet cake mix

1/2 cup butter, melted

2 eggs

1 package Jell-O instant white chocolate pudding (3.3 ounces)

6 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 package Oreos

8 ounce package cream cheese

1/2 package (1/2lb) chocolate bark (CandiQuick) (or about 1-1/2 cups chocolate chips)

mini chocolate chips for garnish

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Combine cake mix, melted butter, eggs, pudding mix, vegetable oil and mix well until thoroughly combined (2-3 minutes on medium of electric mixer).

Spray a 9×13 with nonstick cooking spray. I like the baking variety that has flour in it. Then spread the red velvet brownie layer into the pan. It will be VERY thick, use the back of a spoon (or clean hands) to help spread it into all edges of the pan.

Bake for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean (ovens vary so watch closely). Let cool completely before flipping out.

Crush package of Oreos in a food processor (or in a large plastic bag and rolling pin).

Melt cream cheese for 15 seconds in a microwave to soften.

Stir together crushed Oreos and cream cheese until blended smooth.

Carefully spread out Oreo truffle mixture on top of baked red velvet brownies. Use your hands to help press it down instead of spreading to avoid tearing the brownies.

Melt chocolate candy bark (or chocolate chips) and pour over top Oreo truffle layer.

Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips while still warm.

Let cool completely before cutting into squares.

#4. Speaking of traditions: "The roses are red, violets are blue" poem has been around for as long as any of can remember.

But now, people are spinning the words around to make them more personal and funny. It's not difficult to come up with some rhyming words and your Valentine will appreciate the effort!

#5. Instead of getting her fella flowers or chocolate, she decided to get him something that he'd actually enjoy.

Hopefully, they went out to dinner first because people really shouldn't drink on an empty stomach.

#6. In a world full of so much negativity, it can be really difficult to find something positive to say.

This eternal pessimist made sure to let their wife know just how much she meant to him. At least she knows she's his favorite person in the world.

#7. This person knew that his girlfriend wasn't your typical "roses and chocolate" type of lady, so he made her a bouquet out of her favorite thing…comic books!

By no means are we suggesting cutting up your significant others prized comics, but we are proposing that you get a little creative with it!

#8. This couple decided to go out to dinner to celebrate and ended up getting a bill for $250.

While they were getting ready to pay, they received a note saying that it was already taken care of. As it turns out, they were the grateful recipients of a random act of kindness for Valentine's Day!

#9. What do you get for the nerd in your life that has just about everything they need?

A box filled with Star Wars shaped chocolates, of course! There's really nothing sweeter than biting into the head of a Stormtrooper while cuddling up on the couch watching a Star Wars marathon.

#10. There's a good chance that every single one of you have been in this stage of the relationship.

You know what we're talking about, right? The part of a relationship when nothing has been defined yet. The part when things are still brand new and different. Well, this is the perfect card if you're in this stage for Valentine's Day. You can let them know you're thinking about them, but without being too mushy and committal, of course.

#11. Not everyone is happy about Valentine's Day, especially those that are single or heartbroken.

But that doesn't mean that they can't enjoy the goodies, too! This bakery makes Valentine's cookies for every situation, even the embarrassing ones.

#12. This woman's husband decorated their bedroom with 7,000 Post-it notes.

When she left for work on Valentine's Day, Jennifer Brinley's husband covered their bedroom wall with 7,000 sticky notes with loving words on them, designed to look like an 8-bit video game.

#13. If you'd rather spend the day at home with your loved one, make sure to make something sweet to eat!
