Suggested Prizes for
Valentine’s Day Games

Victorian Valentine’s Day Gift Tag

The prizes given for Valentine games should be in some way suggestive of the day. A sofa cushion for one of the important prizes can be made in the shape of a heart, of red silk or even of Turkey-red cotton.

For the smaller prizes heart pin-cushions are good, and pen-wipers made of leather or felt and cut into various forms. Heart-shaped key-rings, pins, and buckles are in order, as indeed, is any ornament which suggests anything connected with St. Valentine’s day.

The regulation old-fashioned valentine must find a place, too, somewhere among the prizes. The new posters made of rough red card-board, with a small picture in the centre, cost a comparatively small amount and are very effective.

Small dainty books of love poems and lyrics are also appropriate, or the essays of Charles Lamb containing the invocation to St. Valentine.
