Valentine's day

What cute valentines gifts or ideas does everyone have in the work for their hubbies or kids?

I'd like to "borrow" some ideas

Re: Valentine's day

I wrote a little post on my blog about looking forward to Valentine's Day. This is what we've done so far (scroll down towards the bottom of the blog post) - Acts of Love countdown and Bible verse countdown. I'm doing another countdown with hubby with small gifts for each day.






The kiddos each have mini mailboxes which I filled with treats that they can open on the 14th. I have a few baking/craft ideas in mind - probably mini candy cane hearts with dark chocolate in the middle &/or peanut butter filled pretzels, handprint cards, etc.






Are you on Pinterest? I have a Valentine's Day board!

Re: Valentine's day

The handprint card looks awesome!

I have to make some knitted friendship bracelets and DIY bookmark for friends. No idea what to give my husband yet.

Re: Valentine's day

it's kind of 'crafter cheating' but i saw a cute valentine on pinterest that i'm using for my daughters daycare teachers and classmates.



i found templates on this site
http://backlessshirt.blogspot.com/20...and-cheap.html

you could also do the same thing but with swedish fish

she has a template on there for a teachers version that says "Our school is cool because of You!"

it's a great idea, especially for little ones who can't have the hard candies and other treats

Silly question- which way is up on the card?

I have to be honest - I don't know! Whichever way you like, I suppose.

I think the one on the right is correct. Otherwise the heart is upside down.

nak...please forgive typos
