Flowers is a lovely present but leaving it to the eleventh hour will only result in you getting the last pick of a terrible bunch.
What is more, it doesn’t really scream effort when it is obvious you have bought them on your way home from work from the local corner shop.
It isn’t too late to make something for your loved one. Creating your own gift is brilliant because it allows you to personalise the present with his/her name and with their favourite colours. And a homemade gift really shows how much you care because you have put thought and time into making it.
So grab one of our aprons and put a smile on your special someone’s face this Valentine’s Day with some of these top arts and crafts ideas.
Or make a pretty picture frame/canvas? A heart frame is really easy to make so it is great for beginners and it only takes 30 minutes!
Show your creative side by making a cute button-heart cushion to makeover the living room, or decorate some candles with garland trim and gems?
And as well as the present, why not make a homemade card for her too with bows, ribbons and feathers?
Make a collage by printing out some pictures of the two of you and cover the card to remind yourselves of all the good times that you have had over the years.
Get the kids involved too by encouraging them to make their mum or dad a card. It will entertain them for a couple of hours and they can use their imagination with colourful felt tip pens and crayons.
