VALENTINES GIFT IDEA #2: VALENTINE’S BEER OR WINE LABELS
If your special someone is a fan of beer or wine you can make special labels for their bottle and create a special message expressing something you would like to say to them. This is rather easy to do and we have outlined the steps below.
Create or look online for some clever beer or wine slogans and print them out onto cardstock.
Cut pieces of cardstock into an appropriate size for labels.
Decorate each label with Puffy Paint, stickers, and craft foam, then glue the labels to the bottles.
The labels are how you can make these Valentine’s Day gifts personalized in addition to picking out their favorite beer or wine. Remember to include a side of nuts or chocolates to go with their favorite beverage like peanuts, a nut mix or chocolate covered nuts and pretzels.
VALENTINES GIFT IDEA #3: MAGICAL MEMORY SCRAPBOOK
A Magical Memory Scrapbook is another great personalized Valentine’s Day gift as you can incorporate your favorite photos or words to express the magic and love you have shared with this person. Easy steps below:
Make your pages, using thin cardboard like a cookie or cereal box, and do not worry about the design on them. Make each page approximately 6×6 inches or 5×7 inches or any other size you prefer.
Use glue to cover the front and back of each page with brown paper bags that have been cut to the appropriate size.
Use your favorite colored masking tape to bind the pages together. Use the tape on each page to create a binder and margin on each side of the page.
Print out photos, find pictures in old magazines, use your favorite markers, paint, and stickers (just as you would for scrapbooking) and begin to design your book to personalize this Valentine’s Day gift. Use your words and creativity to bring the magic of memories of your history together with your loved one.
You get to decide how many pages or how big you want the Magical Memory Scrapbook to be and of course you will want to include some sweet treats for them to enjoy while they are going through the book. You can fill up a mason jar with nuts and their favorite candies, making a sweet mix, and package it nicely with a red bow.
VALENTINES GIFT IDEA #4: PERSONALIZED MUG
Find a mug that is the perfect fit for the person you will be gifting; you can also find one that is plain white and customize it using porcelain pens. Fill up the mug with sweet treats like candies, nuts, chocolate covered nuts, pretzels or any other goodies. Use red, white, and pink tissue paper and bows to wrap it all up to decorate your gift.
