Valentine's Baking and Craft Ideas

It's less than a week now till Valentine's Day, which means there's still a weekend to come for time to make something. It is also my birthday on Saturday which means I will only have Sunday free, although I may have a hangover it will probably be a good cure!  So I've had a browse on the internet for craft and baking ideas to make for my boyfriend, and here are my favourites:
