DIY-ify: 23 Budget Friendly Handmade Valentine’s Gifts!

Trend: Handmade Valentine’s Gifts.

First, sorry I’m bringing up Valentine’s in early January, but it’s just around the corner and it always sneaks up on me. In our home we try to spend very little for the Valentine’s holiday. That means if there are any gifts, it’s handmade or food (my husband is a wonderful cook, so I love that). I’m prepping some ideas to make a couple of gift items for my hubs, friends, and family. I hope you enjoy my inspiration.
