Sweet Succulent Arrangment
If your man is the gardening type, try an arrangement of succulents for his Valentine's Day gift. Arrange the plants in vintage insulated drink containers and tops.
Freestanding Photo Collage
Give your valentine the gift of a trip down memory lane with our freestanding photo collage. Select 14-20 special photos, and crop them into 4-inch squares. Print onto photo paper; cut out. Using adhesive strips or Mod Podge ($5, Target), adhere the photos onto thick white cardstock. (The paper has to be thick enough to stand on its own.) Cut out photos using a crafts knife, leaving a narrow border. On all four sides of each photo, cut small slits as pictured. Assemble the collage by slipping photos into the slits.
Beer and Peanuts
Homemade Pizza Kit
Surprise him with a romantic dinner at home. Make and bake pizza crusts; wrap up a variety of his favorite pizza toppers plus our quick pizza sauce. Include instructions to bake at 350°F for 12 minutes, and place in a decorated pizza box.
Stamped Cheese Markers
We can’t help but get all cheesy about this Valentine’s Day gift idea. Silver-plated forks from a thirft shop get a new look. Place between two felt pieces, flatten in a vise. With the front side up, hammer metal stamps into the fork to mark the name of the cheese. Cut a few inches off the handle, wrap it in felt, and curl it backward using pliers. Surprise him by using the gifts in a Valentine's Day cheese spread.
Hot Chocolate Date with Personalized Mugs
Memory-Saver Photo Frame
Highlight a trip or other event in a gift that preserves cherished memories. Create a custom embellished photo mat by arranging words and phrases in an illustration program then converting them to an outline font. Print your creation on art paper, then color the words.
Triple-Pepper Hot Sauce
Spice it up this Valentine's Day with the gift of hot sauce. Try our Triple-Pepper recipe, perfect for kicking up everything from scrambled eggs to stir-fry. Or buy his favorite hot sauce and personalize with our printable labels. Dried chili peppers and a festive photo-transfer label complete the gift.
