You can buy custom portraits of you and your partner on Etsy (starting at $30).Ready to break out the romance this Valentine's Day?
If you're having a little trouble with your ballad or sonnet, the internet — as always — has you covered.
Users of task site Fiverr, for instance, are offering custom-made romance for as little as $5. Granted, you only get you a few butterflies for that low price. For a full swoon, you'll probably need to shell out more like $10-$20.
On Fiverr, you can find someone to write you a love song for $5 ($10 if you want it the same day). You can also hire someone to draw caricatures of you and your date as Cupid for $10 — it's $5 per person, if you're in the mood for a solo pic.
Another $20 will create a custom card you won't find on the shelves of the drugstore, and $5 will get you a handwritten poem "for your love."
On Etsy, $12 will buy you the ability to — temporarily — tattoo your partner's name somewhere your coworkers won't see on Monday. Another $30 will snag an illustrated custom portrait of you two together.
Shell out $20 to wear your affection on your sleeve using a bracelet inscribed with meaningful dates and locations, or write how much you love your other half across your chest (on a tee shirt, sheesh!).
On TaskRabbit, you can follow in the footsteps of past Taskers who have hired someone to:
- wait in line at a packed restaurant
- take stealth photos of your memorable date (or proposal, depending on your plans)
- deliver flowers and chocolates while you're stuck at work
- or even come up with a list of romantic date ideas for you to choose from.
