In Australia we celebrate Valentine's day, but it's a day exclusively for lovers, to give a gift on that day is a declaration of romantic interest.  You won't see kids at school handing out Valentine's favours to class mates, or to their teacher.  We don't give token gifts to workmates, or friends.  Such a shame that we are reluctant to expand this day to include all our friends and loved ones. 

I made this little treat box with a girlfriend in mind, so I kept it cute and sweet and will fill it with chocolates for her so that it's an appropriately platonic gift.  To make it a little more romantic you could use a real matchbox and include a sentiment similar to "You light my fire".
