Do not miss it!
1. ORIGINAL GIFTS FOR VALENTINE’S DAY: STRING ART
Give a thread to your partner and leave him speechless. Doing so is very easy. You just need a wooden base, some nails, hammer, and some thread. Start by drawing on the base the shape you are going to do and then place the nails following that silhouette. The final part is the most fun and the one that gives the most play, you just have to roll the thread all the way using the nails you put to give the shape. The result is super cool and it takes less than it seems.
2. GIVE A LOVING PILLOW ON VALENTINE’S DAY
It may seem silly to give a pillow but if your partner does not live in the same city as you … this option will be the winner. Make him a pillow with a message like this: “If you miss me, hug this pillow.” Cool, right? You can get a basic in any establishment that sells bedding and then with a marker or fabric paint write the message.
3. HANDMADE GIFTS FOR READING LOVERS
If you are one of those who like to read for sure, more than once you have been identified with a character, or even your partner, right? Well, very simple, take that book and with the book folding technique make a word you want to say. There are a lot of tutorials and blogs explaining this technique and even free patterns so you can follow and get a result like this.
4. GIVE A MATCHBOX
The flame of love! To make this picture, get a photo frame with a background and many matches? Draw the silhouette of the parable or the shape you want to make and go hitting the matches and filling the entire space. Make sure you use a powerful glue since otherwise, the matches will fall.
Personalized keychain can be a great option. You can search for love shaped or heart-shaped keyrings and you can customize it by printing a photo of you both. I think this would be one of the special gifts he/she will remember.
6. ROMANTIC VALENTINE CUSHION
Make a cushion for your partner with a little felt expressing your feelings towards her, or better yet, her favorite movie, or that first trip together … The case is to capture with felt that moment of yours. A cushion is a useful gift because it always comes in handy, whether for the sofa, the bed, or that chill-out area that we like so much.
7. GIVE A PERSONALIZED JENGA TO YOUR PARTNER
Who hasn’t ever played Jenga? Or better yet, who doesn’t want to stay home on a cold, rainy night with their partner playing board games? Buy the Jenga and personalize it by adding phrase and moments lived with your partner so that every time he moves the card, he reads one and the game excites even more.
