Treat your loved one to something special with a handmade gift this Valentine’s. It’s a great time to get creative and show them just how much they mean to you. Not to mention the most special presents are often the most thoughtful ones. We’ve put together a few ideas we love, and not only are these easy to do, but they will also be unique to you and your loved one.
Fill a glass mason jar with little handwritten notes, each one telling your partner a different thing you love about them. With paper options such as the Memo Block Vivid Paper, Static Memo Notes, and even Wooden Blackboard Hangtags to choose from, simply write down memorable dates you’ve had together, cute pet names and funny moments you’ve shared. If you have the time, you could fill a jar with 365 reasons - one for each day of the year - that your partner can keep reading until Valentine’s Day next year! Decorate your jar with hearts, string and maybe even a small photograph of the two of you.
By creating personalised coupons that they can ‘redeem’, these quirky coupons are a fun and creative way to treat your loved one this February 14th. What's more, these fun-loving tickets allow you to be as inventive as you like, no matter whether you're promising a cup of tea, a foot rub, or even a homemade three course dinner. The coupons can be ‘redeemed’ at any time, and are a great way to bring some spontaneity and fun to your relationship. Either write them on a computer and print on nice paper, or handwrite your coupons and add toppers for that DIY touch.
On a piece of card, place a small square picture of you and your partner in the centre. Around this picture, write your loved one their own love letter. This can be a story of how you fell in love with them, or about a special moment the two of you shared. Make sure it’s short enough to fit on the side where the picture is. Find a frame that fits the piece of card in, and your Valentine’s gift is finished! A unique and special take on the traditional photo frame gift.
On a piece of card, glue scrabble letters such as the Wooden Tile Letters into an arrangement of words that mean something special to you as a couple. Whether it’s both of your names, the place you met or your pet names for each other, make sure it’s something that holds a place in your heart. Frame the letters and card, giving your loved one their very own personalised piece of art.
