Valentine’s Day or Valentine’s Day, on this date we all want to surprise and please our partner but sometimes it happens that we do not have enough money to buy the gift that we would like to give them. Well, today we leave you a series of ideas for Valentine’s gifts that you can create yourself and that are very easy to make, inexpensive and very original for this special day. You are sure to surprise your partner with the gift of your choice!
You will tell us how this Valentine’s Day has been for you.
BOX FOR DAYS WITHOUT PLANS :
For this gift what you have to do is buy a large box (the one you like the most or think your partner would like) or if you want it to be totally your creation, I advise you to buy a cardboard box and line it with wrapping paper, or with photos of your favorite series or of the two of you. In this way you will get a collage totally customized to your liking.
But the gift does not end here, you can fill it with a blanket of the suavecitas, a box of popcorn, some jugs of breakfasts (one for each one) and if you like infusions, a box of the one that you like the most. both of them, some bags with their favorite jelly beans … or whatever you want to include. The only condition that this very original gift has is that you must wrap each of the gifts separately.
KIT WITH FIVE SENSES …
We would make this Valentine’s box the same as the previous one, the only difference is that we would change the gifts for the ones we know our partner likes the most. There would be five, one for each direction, we would wrap them separately and put a little sign on each one indicating the corresponding direction:
Sense of taste: We can give you your favorite sweet, jelly beans, chocolate, etc., you can also include a voucher for a lunch or dinner at your favorite restaurant. Why not make that romantic dinner that will make her surrender at your feet?
Sense of touch : We can give our partner a soft cuddly toy, even some socks or slippers to be at home, those soft and loving.
Sense of hearing : In this case, buy a CD of your favorite singer or group, we could even record some poetry made for this occasion and recited by ourselves, in my case Felix, my husband, gave me an album with ballads.
Sense of sight : You can create a small montage with the photos remembering those moments that have meant so much to you, but if you still have not framed a photo of the two of you together or if you want to give him one in which you are alone, this will be a good occasion. Another option that may also be fine is to include your favorite flower.
Sense of smell : It is the sense of perfumes, aromatherapy, we would give you a keychain with a small doll that can be perfumed with your favorite aroma, so that you can always find yourself together.
MESSAGE IN A JAR OR IN A BOTTLE (like The Police song):
We can make a short love letter , written in nice handwriting and then put it in a glass bottle. We close it with a cork and decorate it with a large bow that we would hang a heart on which we have put “I love you.”
Create the glass jar with the decoupage technique, decorating it as we want, either with cutouts of photos or with pieces of wrapping paper, etc., once finished we would put the love letter inside.
BOX WITH HEART:
This craft is the easiest of all, all we have to do is find a small cardboard box and stick different colored hearts on the six sides of it, the last one would be the largest of all and we would paste it with the dedication that we want to do to our partner, putting him in the part where he has to open it. Next, we would also fill it with hearts of different sizes and different colors with words or phrases of love, we can make them with cardboard or with eva rubber ; the true gift would be covered with all the hearts that would hide a small jewel (some earrings, a ring, a pendant, etc.).
FINALLY, THE RASCA-GANA OF VALENTINE’S DAY:
We all know scratch cards; As a child I loved to scratch them and discover the prize. It is a simple cardboard with some boxes painted and covered with metallic paint to scratch and discover the prize. Well, what I propose is that you do several scratch cards and put them in different gift boxes (jewelry type).
To do this, we only need cardboard, the drawing that we want to put on it with the name of the gift, we will cut it out and stick it on the cardboard, including plastic or cellophane paper above the name of the gift so that when we scratch it does not get damaged .
Then we put in a cap two parts of metallic paint for one of the dishwasher that we normally use, we mix everything and with that mixture we will cover the name of the gift. We let it dry very well and can now put it inside the boxes.
A very good idea if you want to ask your partner to marry you is to make a small puzzle with the phrase “Do you want to marry me?” This would take a lot of work and time, but it would be a very original way of asking. To do it with a lot of suspense, we would put a letter on each scratch-off.
