I know you're looking for something creative, but. . .

I just buy the cheesiest pop culture kids' valentines I can find and distribute them with candy. They're always a hit. The Ricky Martin sticker valentines truly exceeded all expectations. The Crocodile Hunter was also quite popular. The one year I was sick and didn't bother, people thought they had been left off my list!

I'm still looking for this year's offering. I was hoping for something like One Direction, but no luck so far.

Anyway, I'm sure someone more craftily inclined will give you some good ideas!

I don't normally shop at Target, but I was there last week and they had One Direction valentines! Run, go there! I love your tradition!

I have a staff of ten for whom I usually do a little treat every month. Here is my Pinterest board for Valentine treats. Not too much there but a few options.

I have a board for just about holiday with pins of treats for my staff.

This year I'm doing the red velvet brownies but using a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut them out instead of just the usual squares.

budget friendly and cute - get those little 6-packs of flowers and cut them apart - wrap each one in a little heart tissue and a ribbon - very cute and cheap

Is it the custom to give work mates Valentines??
Over here (well at least in the UK) you only give a valentine to the (one) person you truly love...often anonymously

I'm only giving personal valentine's day gifts not group. Sorry!

Candy sounds good though.

No. Not customary to give valentines to co-workers. I was thinking I'd be uncomfortable if I were one of the op's co-workers to be receiving gifts.

We have a region meeting this Friday 2/8 and I always try to find something in the Target Dollar Bin, Michaels, etc for something fun for all the Associate Staff (secretaries.

Michales have their 90% sale going on and I found what looks like the size of a mouse pad note pad with a calendar at the bottom of each page and a great looking Iron Gate. I'm going to add a tag about positive change and had those out. They cost me .03 each!

We are going through a realignment across the state and everyone is so unsure about what is happening and where they will be. It is the only time we will be together prior to Valentines!

I normally do not give Valentines to people at work but I thought it would be a nice little random RAK with the single flower suggestion and a chocolate. You know...just to brighten someone's day. We have a small office with only 5 women in it, the rest are men. Sometimes we get lost there.
