Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and we thought what better way to celebrate the holiday of love then with some thoughtful and homemade Valentine’s Day gift ideas. While roses and chocolates are always a lovely option, making a gift from the heart can be much more meaningful. Here are some creative ideas to try:
We all have tons of photos saved on our phones, take this as an opportunity to print out some of your favorites and create an album. It is a fun way to stroll down memory lane, relive some happy times, and have a keepsake of memories you have shared. Another way to add a fun touch to the album is to purchase index cards or cardstock and add little notes about the photos and memories you have created; like the date, place or a special moment in the picture.
As you know, on Valentine’s Day it is usually cold! To help your Valentine warm up this winter, make some homemade bath bombs. This is a great gift idea to not only help them warm up in a steamy bath, but to remind your special someone to indulge in self-care too! You can be creative with the bath bombs and try different scents. For example, try a nostalgic Valentine’s Day scent like cinnamon, for the classic red heart candies. Or if perhaps you would like them to kick back and relax, a lavender scented bath bomb would be perfect. If the winter weather is starting to give your loved one the sniffles, make a tea tree and eucalyptus scented bath bomb to help clear sinuses.

As we mentioned, roses are a classic but may be a little over done. This Oreo Cookie bouquet is perfect for all the Valentine’s Day recipients in your life! Get creative with your bouquet and dip the Oreos in different melted chocolate, pink and red are classic choices, but feel free to choose your Valentine’s favorite color instead. Add some sprinkles and crushed candies, and you have the most delicious bouquet you can deliver. If you are skilled with a piping bag, try and write a special message on the cookies, too!
Valentine’s Day is a fun way to remind those around you how much you love and appreciate them, and with these homemade and meaningful gifts, they are sure to be impressed!
