valentine fun

Anyone can go to Hallmark and buy a card for their Valentine, but my mom always said the best gifts are homemade (or she said something like that!)

I am always looking for new DIY Valentine’s Day gifts for my hubby, kids, the grandparents and my kids classrooms. I have found some really cute ideas out there to share!

Heart & Glitter Votives |

I really adore mason jars – these are so sweet with the hearts and glitter. A great grandparent or girlfriend gift.


Conversation Heart Soaps |

Cute and sudsy – these could be made into other shapes as well for other gifts!


Make Heart Shaped Eggs

I tried to find the original source of this great idea, but couldn’t (if anyone know, please let me know so I can properly credit them!)  How fun would it be to come down to breakfast for these adorable heart shaped eggs?


Valentine’s Pretzel Buttons |

I have a huge thing for sweet & salty – these are right up my alley AND they are so easy that I can even make them!


 Ah-Maze-ing Valentine |

I am always looking for some new and original valentine’s for my kids classrooms. Anyone can go and buy a bag of candy, but you don’t see this every day!!


Cut-Out Cards

Such a cute card – use this template to help you create it!!


This one has great step-by-step instructions:


 Chocolate Covered Pretzels |

I told you that I can’t get enough of sweet and salty and these are so darn cute (and they are at my cooking level!)


Chocolate Peanut Butter Heart cookies |

What’s better than a chocolate peanut butter cookie  A chocolate peanut butter cookie WITH A HEART ON IT!!!!

  1. This may seem like a really obvious question, but how do I download the template for the “I <3U" pop out card? Thank you! 🙂

      1. Thank you for the quick reply! It takes me to a Chinese pin interest page! I’m not sure what to do! (Sorry if this is very obvious). I cannot see where to download it from

  2. This is absolutely perfect. I am using it for my sister to open on Valentines Day for her “Open when” cad. Love love love. Thanks for sharing.
