Valentine’s Day Gift and Decor Ideas

Here’s some ideas that will cost you little money and time to put together.

#1-Try to get most of the items you need at one store if you can.

#2-Keep it simple, yet give it the “Wow” factor by making the gift into an arrangement or placing an item in a cute box.

#3-Try to find items that you know will go with their home decor.

#4-Buy in multiples for teachers.

Here are some sites that have great Valentine’s Day gifts and decor

For Valentine’s Day Ornaments check out Bronners.com. You can have a couple of them personalized.

Another great site for decor and ornaments is Christmastraditions.com.

Williams-Sonoma.com has great sales on some of their baking essentials, like dragees and decorating pens.

For hand made gifts, try Etsy.com

Terrysvillage.com, Partycheap.com and Personalizationmall.com

Basic materials are Scotch Tape or double sided tape to attach items to trays or plates. Ribbon and cellophane wrap from Hobby Lobby.

For teacher’s gifts this year, I purchased a set of 6 “LOVE” balloon holder/picture holder paper weights. I added a jewel on each one for a little sparkle. I purchased a box of 6 petite four Valentine’s Day magnets. Each one has been placed in a tiny treat box with mini doilies. I tied them off with ribbon. These are simple yet thoughtful gifts. For a busy mom, this shouldn’t take up much of your time putting them together. I found the mini doilies, mini treat boxes at “HEB Cypress Market”. The magnets I stumbled on at a local gift shop “II Friend’s Gifts” in Cypress, Texas.

      Great idea! I love how you made that awesome flower out of high waters! What a great way to re purpose! Love the candle holder with the kernels as an anchor for the flower clippings! Keep on doing what you’re doing!
