10 last-minute Valentine’s Day gift ideas

Life is good—and then suddenly you remember that tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. But now it must be too late to find an appropriate gift or arrange a romantic celebration. Au contraire. With a little imagination, you can still have a Valentine’s Day to remember. Here are 10 last-minute gift ideas to help make your holiday special.


Hearts and flowers


Flowers are a perfect last-minute gift for Valentine's Day. They're not only traditional, they're also widely available. Even grocery stores carry beautiful bouquets and arrangements for Valentine's Day. Make your gift of flowers a little extra special this year by slipping a love note or some handcrafted chocolates in among the blossoms

Let me count the ways


Buy your beloved a book of love poems at the nearest bookstore. It doesn't really matter whether you choose Shakespearean sonnets, love poems by Rumi, the 13th century Persian poet, or a volume of modern verse. A book of love poems can transform your last-minute purchase into a gift of timeless beauty.

No reservations? No problem


What could be better than a romantic dinner on Valentine's Day? But getting last-minute reservations may be nearly impossible. Rather than settle for something less than perfect, make your own romance with a picnic featuring food from your favorite deli or gourmet shop. If the February weather is too wet or cold where you live, find an indoor alternative: a car parked at a favorite overlook; your high-rise office with a glittering view of the city lights; the cabin of a borrowed boat or RV; or a blanket at home in front of the fire. 

Try a little bling


As a Valentine's Day gift, jewelry is a time-tested classic, and you can often find last-minute deals on a wide range of great pieces. A beautiful pendant or earrings for her; a handsome bracelet or watch for him. Whatever you choose, jewelry is a Valentine's Day gift that is sure to please.

Smile for the camera


Use your video camera to record an intimate message that will leave no doubt about the depth and intensity of your love. It's a last-minute gift that your beloved can keep and treasure -- and replay again and again. 

Frame it


If a picture is worth a thousand words, why not send your beloved an eloquent Valentine's Day message with a framed photo that declares your love? Whether you choose an image of the two of you or one that evokes a memory you share, the right photo will make your Valentine's Day picture perfect.

Start a love journal


Buy a nicely bound journal and write on the first page, sharing just one of the many things you appreciate about the man or woman of your dreams. Make this year's Valentine's Day gift the journal and that first romantic page. Then pledge to write a new entry each day of the coming year, and give your beloved the 
completed journal on Valentine's Day next year. 

Get a room

You don't have to fly to Paris to have a romantic evening. Call around to local hotels and book a last-minute room for two. February is the off-season for travel in most places, so you should have no problem finding a boudoir for the night that will fit both your budget and your mood.

Say it with ink


Be spontaneous! Make a permanent declaration of love with matching tattoos. Actually, they don't have to match. You can each get a tattoo that has meaning not only for you but also for the person you love, and together make a statement that time can't erase.

Yahoo Publisher Network or AdSense?

Yahoo Publisher network (YPN) and Google AdSense are the leading and most popular PPC (pay-per-click) programs. If you are running a website and wish to earn money through business promotion by displaying ads on your website, then don’t look any further. However the most intriguing question is that which program is the best and that which of the two offers higher profit. Well, this is a tough question to answer. Google AdSense is rated as the most prolific and market-leading PPC affiliate program in terms of affiliate base. But Yahoo is not far behind and has its own benefits too.

Which is Better? Google AdSense or Yahoo Publisher Network (YPN)?

Based on analysis, Google AdSense provides better CTR (click-through-rate) which means whenever a person visits your website, greater are the chances of generating clicks from the visitor. The more people visit and click the Ads, the more money the advertisers will pay to the website owner.
The reason is that, Google Ads are more content specific and target audience better than Yahoo Ads. But on the other hand, Yahoo provides a better CPC (cost-per-click) than Google AdSense. CPC is nothing but the percentage of commission the affiliate programs pays per click. For a single click, Yahoo pays more than Google. Google typically pays around 30%-40% whereas Yahoo pays 60%-70% for a click.

Due to the above mixed features, one should decide which ads to display on their sites. If your web page is good enough to attract substantial number of visitors per month, there won’t be much of a difference between the revenue paid by Google and Yahoo, though experts say that Google can attract more number of visitors due to better content target ads. Most people regularly switch between Google AdSense and Yahoo publisher ads to check which program generates better revenue for their websites.
Note: If you have both Google AdSense and Yahoo publisher affiliate accounts, I would personally suggest that you display Google ads on a set of websites and Yahoo ads on another set of websites. It’s better to display Google ads on specific content oriented sites and Yahoo ads on non-content oriented sites such as entertainment sites. Users browsing non-content oriented site such as an entertainment site are more likely to click on a variety of Ads as opposed to a content visitor who is more likely to click on related topic. Since Yahoo ads are less relevant as compared to Google ads, displaying them on professional content oriented sites would not be a better idea.
