Ah, Valentine's Day. The yearly holiday for hopeless romantics, those with significant others, and suitors who want to take things to the next level --- and an annual event that most singles dread (particularly the “bitter” ones). We've got exactly two weeks to go before the big day, and everyone's already making arrangements for it (or the weekend before or after the 14th). But before you become preoccupied with personal plans, we have a reminder for you: Valentine's Day also presents numerous opportunities for entrepreneurs to cash in!

Also, we suggest having a dedicated phone/mobile number for your sideline, along with a website or Facebook page to handle online orders and inquiries.
Without further ado, here are the 10 sidelines that you can do for Valentine's Day (and maybe turn into a full-fledged business afterwards). Click on the gallery below to check it out.
