For LEGO fans, any holiday or event is a great excuse/opportunity to be creative. To celebrate Valentine’s Day, LEGO fan Jason Allemann built a custom Valentine’s Day pop-up book based on the #21315 LEGO Ideas Pop-Up Book, originally submitted to LEGO Ideas by Jason and fellow LEGO fan, Grant Davis. Check out this sweet red and white version! 🙂

The Valentine’s Day pop-up book features a brick-built “I Heart U” message that folds out as you open the book. There is also a little black ring box, which rises up like the beanstalk from the Jack and the Beanstalk insert from the #21315 LEGO Ideas Pop-Up Book set. In fact, the Valentine’s Day insert was built to easily replace the standard inserts from the set. For the ring, Jason used an old LEGO Clickits ring, but you can use one of the LEGO Friends rings as well, or even a real ring!

In the video above, you can see the Valentine’s Day book in action, and if you would like to build the Valentine’s Day pop-up book insert yourself, instructions are available at the pop-up book page at Jason’s website, (You might want to visit this page regularly, as Jason shares other custom inserts for the set.)

Another unique item for Valentine’s Day is by LEGO customizer CitizenBrick. From now on, until supplies last, you will receive this darling chocolate heads heart tin with every order over $50. CitizenBrick carries some amazing and very high quality custom printed LEGO elements, so check out their selection, and place an order soon to get the exclusive heart tin.

LEGO themselves released a couple of Valentine’s Day sets for this year as well; the #40187 LEGO Flower, and the #40349 LEGO BrickHeadz Valentine’s Puppy set. I particularly like the flowers, as they are generic enough to use for any other event, or just as general decorations. They can also be used as templates to make other flowers in different colors. Both Valentine’s Day sets are available at the seasonal items section of the Online LEGO Shop.

Happy valentine’s day everyone! I love Jason’s book! So cute! And the video is funny. I think lego did better valentine’s day sets in the past, but the flowers are not bad.

Jason also posted another alternate model already. You can find it on the same page admin linked. The ring idea is great! Now just have to find a girl who appreciates the nerdiness. 😀

I like those chocolate tins. Anyway to know when they ran out to make sure its added to my order? They say you won’t see it on the order page.

It doesn’t seem like you can know for sure. The earlier you order the better chance you have of getting one.
