Grabbing the last battered box of chocolates from a shelf that was emptied thanks to a collective last-minute panic is nowhere near as impressive as giving a handmade, homespun gift. This Valentine’s Day, why not make that special someone feel particularly loved with a DIY gift? These goodies are easy but heartfelt, the perfect surprise for a day dedicated to thoughtful gestures. No more wilted red roses and stale chocolates! These are handmade with love, for love.
10. Deck of love
At the end of the day, even if you fail spectacularly and end up with more papercuts than cut-out triumphs, your special someone is sure to appreciate the effort. First and foremost, February 14th is about celebrating the love you share and how Cupid brought you together (although this is done particularly well with a berry sorbet champagne float in hand). The gifts are just the cherry on top. Happy Valentine’s Day!
