show some love with these Valentine’s Day DIYs!

Valentine’s Day is coming in like a freight train, and as we prepare for the big day at the flower shop I’m thinking ahead for sweet homemade gifts for C and my friends.

Here are some of my favorites scoured from the internets…

There are few things that make my husband happier than a six pack. Dress up a case of your Valentine’s favorite brew (or soda!) with craft paper, ribbon, and a homemade tag.

Make a cute card with birthday candles and card stock for the person who lights up your life. (This version with a match book is adorable, too.)

Pen a love letter on a coffee cup with a Sharpie paint marker. Bake it in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees (F) to make it dishwasher safe!

Who can resist chocolate covered strawberries? Add white chocolate football laces to score major points with your sports fanatic.

For a naturally sweet Valentine, print cute stickers to add to different kinds of fresh fruit and arrange them together in a big basket.

I’m all about s’mores these days. {They’re the cupcake of 2014; you heard it here first.} Fill a mason jar with mini graham crackers, mini marshmallows, and chocolate chips to make a s’mores snack mix. Top it off with a cute tag, like, “There’s no one I love s’more than you!

Turn a deck of playing cards into a book of “52 Reasons I Love You.” Or “Like You,” if it’s not that serious yet ;-)

If you’ve never made pots de creme, Valentine’s Day is a great time to start. It’s the easiest dessert to make, and so so good. Heart sprinkles and a dollop of fresh whipped cream are the cherry on top.

There’s plenty more inspiration where that came from! Peep my Be My Valentine board on Pinterest for other ideas.
