I will come straight out at the start of the post and ‘confess’ that I am writing this from the perspective, of a 30 something female, wanting to make a little something for her hubster.
An awful lot of the Valentine’s gifts I’ve seen whilst ‘researching’ this post have been lovely. But not, I suspect, what my hubby would like to receive. As much as I would like to make him a pompom heart necklace, I fear he would not be best pleased with it….
So, this list is for quick and easy things that you can make, that I think the man (or woman) in your life might like to receive.
And I guarantee you they will all be cheaper than a bunch of red roses (actually, now I come to think of it, what do you buy men for Valentines? It seems to be a very female orientated occasion!)
1) 52 things I love about you
I did this for hubby one Christmas, and he had an envelope to open every week for a year-I do love this idea to do it with a pack of cards though
2) 12 months of pre-planned date nights
Again, I’ve done this with hubby as a Christmas present, but I have to confess that we seemed to forget after February…!
The rest of the ideas are un-ashamaedly (is that a word?!) food based. What do they say about the way to a man’s heart..?!
3) A heart shaped pizza!
4) Heart shaped muffins or cupcakes!
5) Nutella pies. In a heart shape. I will say no more.
As an added bonus, here is what I did 2 years ago:
If I’m brutally honest, I can’t remember what I did last year. I know that hubby made me these awesome origami tulips:
I think I may have made heart shaped versions of this peanut butter fudge. As neither of us can remember, I plan on doing that this year…!
Do you celebrate/acknowledge Valentines?
I kind of get that it is a media/marketing phenomenon, but I do like to make a little something to mark the occassion-how about you? Any favourite DIY Valentines to share?!
