A look at the companies celebrating the holiday in creative ways.

Feeling blue about being single on Valentine’s Day? Gone are the days of mandatory candy and letter exchanges, but thanks to these creative brands, everyone can share in the Valentine’s Day love.

Fab-Cafe-3D-Printed-Chocolates

The average chocolate box goes high-tech with FabCafe’s Valentine Day promotion: 3D print a chocolate version of your lover’s head for just $65. If you’re currently single, perhaps now’s the time to make a chocolate version of Ryan Gosling.

Heineken VDay

Forget to make a dinner reservation for the big day? Heineken will help you snag a spot with this clever Twitter promotion. Just tweet with the hashtag #tweetforatable, and Heineken will set you up with a last minute reservation. Details are scarce about the logistics- which cities/times are available, but it may be worth a shot to avoid going the take-out route!

eau-de-pizza-hut-valentines

Perfume, flowers, and chocolate are typical Valentine’s Day gifts. If you’re in need of a scent suggestion, Pizza Hut may have the perfect solution: a pizza-scented fragrance. After first introducing the perfume in Canada, the brand has brought the signature scent to the US in time for Valentine’s Day. Tweet #lastminutelovers to @PizzaHut for a chance to win the fragrance.

IKEA Valentine's Day

Let’s not beat about the bush: Valentine’s Day is a day for romance. IKEA Australia celebrates love (and it’s offspring) with this clever print ad execution: a voucher for a free crib for any baby born on November 14th, exactly 9 months after Valentine’s Day. But if you’d rather stay baby-free come November 14th, Trojan is offering free New Yorkers free condoms and cab rides.

VW Vday

If you’re unsure as to who’s your perfect type, VW South Africa has a fun YouTube interactive ad that will guide you towards your ideal partner (who of course, drives a VW). Will it help you find the ‘One?’

And it looks like we spoke too soon- Intel brings back the classic Valentine’s card exchange with a digital twist. Dell, Sony, Acer, HP, and Lenovo are all among the lucky recipients so far to receive custom Valentine’s Day Cards. It looks like the brand is taking special requests– tweet @Intel for your very own card!

Have you seen any other great examples of brands celebrating Valentine’s Day? Tweet @PSFK and tell us how you’re celebrating!
