Valentine’s Day is on our doorstep and we have to think for the right present to that special someone that is in our heart. No doubt, Valentine’s Day is among the most commercialized holidays throughout the year along with Christmas, but still with some imagination and desire one can prepare a handmade gift. This gift will bear one message “You are unique to me just as this gift and I love you.” Those who are in love will get the romantic gesture and the personalized message. There are various ways in which one can express love and secure a day full of romance. Below are enumerated the best homemade gifts that one can present.
To many couples Valentine’s Day is associated with chocolate, wine, music and some alone time, away from kids, family and friends. Among the most popular and easy to arrange homemade gifts is a unique box of top quality chocolates. Everything matters here – the form of the box you will choose, the special type of pralines that you will buy and arrange, the wrapping paper and the foil paper, the excess paper inside and the ribbon. Usually, the form to stick to is that of a heart and the choice of chocolate – Belgium. This fabulous gift will go well with a hand-made card with a special poem in handwriting. The best poets to choose from are Shelley, Keats and Byron, but there are many others as well. If you feel that you can write a love poem of your own dedicated to the person you love – well, that will be the most romantic thing ever.
The romantic date will not be perfect without the right music and candles. Thus, another great homemade gift idea is to make a special CD with a playlist of your favorite romantic songs. The CD could be easily personalized with a printable label and a sweet message. Your partner will be able to listen to that playlist in the car days and months after Valentine’s Day and will appreciate the gift. As far as the candles are concerned – they come in various shapes, sizes and aroma. However, before giving the candle as a gift, you can make efforts and wrap it in a beautiful paper and thus make it seem even more beautiful.
Another interesting homemade gift for Valentine’s Day that seems to appeal to most people is the personal photo greeting. You can print a great photo of you and your loved one on a glossy paper, leaving room for the greeting and you can also add hearts of ribbon. Another good idea would be to print a great photo of the both of you and set in a lovely frame that could be arranged on the wall. Among the other good homemade gifts are also pillows in the shape of a heart. These you can do using the proper decoration like glass beads, for example. There are other ideas for a great surprise. One of them is a travel voucher for romantic weekend in lovely destination like Paris or London. Find your weekend deals to Paris over the internet or get a studio to rent in London and spend the perfect Valentine’s Day.
Whichever of the gifts you decide to go for, you should remember that Valentine’s Day is about love and expressing that love.If you do not have time to prepare yourself, a personalized card and a box of chocolates, or even a flower can deliver the message. The important thing here to remember is that you should express your feelings throughout the year and not just on that special day.
