One way to surprise her is by placing different action shots with a message. The photo coaster set (5) here → holds up to 4, so something like this would work: 1st coaster “ Hey,(her name)” , 2nd coaster “I’ve had my eye on you”, 3rd “ Be my Valentines,(Your name here)” , and the last coaster would finish it off with a picture of you both. We hope this example helps, the best tip to keep on mind, is to be unique and creative, and think of something that will put a smile on her face or make her giggle.
