When Valentine’s Day rolls around, I am a little burned out when it comes to gifts. I think I go full force during the holidays and I am still recovering in February! I do not give a lot of Valentine gifts because I feel it is a special holiday to be shared between people you love. I give my husband and my kids gifts and that is about it! When I give them gifts, I try to make them special and try to stay away from store bought presents. If you are looking for some ideas for gifts that are a bit different, here are just 3 for you.
3 Creative Valentine’s Day Gifts
- A Photo Collage: Last year, I made my oldest daughter a photo collage for her Valentine’s Day gift. I took photos from birth through the previous year and made them into a cute collage and had it framed. She loved it! It was meaningful, affordable and one of a kind.
- Write A Poem: Last year I wrote my husband a love poem and I think he really liked it very much. He bragged to his mom about it, so I think it was a big hit!
- Handmade Sweet Treats: I love to work in the kitchen and if I can make something sweet and delicious for my loves, I am all over it! I have made cakes, cookies, candies and chocolates in the past year. This year, I was inspired to make a really cool gift; a doughnut bouquet! I bet you have never received one of those!
I was sent an Entenmann’s Sweet Valentine’s gift package, valued at $80, which enabled me to create a cute edible bouquet. The package came with coupons for Entenmann’s products, a $30 AMEX GC to purchase my supplies and the adorable Mr. Rich Frosted and Ms. Crumb plush toys. The step-by-step recipe card to create the bouquet is easy to follow and the supplies are affordable. Because we were snowed in for 3 days, we were unable to get all of the supplies we needed for the bouquet, so the kids and I had a great time creating our own masterpiece. They were delicious!
