Valentines day gift guide!

UntitledOkay so I’ve been single for… a long time now so maybe I’m not the best person to be giving advice on Valentine’s day gifts but I spend a lot of time reading lovedy dovey books and scorching through ship tags on Tumblr.So surely I can at least attempt to help some of you buy something for that special someone. Also note: a lot of these are cheaply made/home made so you don’t have to go all out and spend lots of money on each other, because I know a lot of people set budgets for each other these days and also making presents yourself has become a lot more frequent, which I love. I feel as if making something yourself really shows you’ve put the effort in for the person you love.

These are a super cute idea. You can get these for free by following the link bellow. They allow you to write your own little message that you can then print on a chocolate bar for that special someone. Or if you want to just do something nice for someone you’re not with you could take it differently. Say write ‘for when you’re sad’ or ‘for when your team loses’, put them all together in a big box and give to someone as a little emergency supply of chocolate.

For both: 52 Things I love about you flip book

52-things-i-love-about-youThis little idea is called ’52 things I love about you’ yes it’s quite a cheesy gift but as least it’s personal and easy to make! Basically it’s 52 playing cards printed out and clipped together. On each card you write something you love about the other person on the card. This is super adorable, especially if you’re in a long distance relationship and you don’t get to see each other often.

valentine-s-gift-ideas-for-her_1421850587For both: Love heats map canvas print

This isn’t actually a home made present. Well you could make it yourself if you’re super talented, but otherwise you could simply just purchase it at the shop I’ll link to bellow. It’s pretty much a white wall canvas with two overlapping hearts on it. The idea is you can either put the places you’re both from in each heart, or you can have the place you met in both. I think this is a really adorable unique idea and something worth spending money on for that special someone.

These are really cool. The superman was is not really romantic themed but it’s still a nice idea if you’re unsure of what to get someone for Valentine’s day. The Star Wars ones are slightly more Valentine’s themed. One features Princess Lelia saying ‘I love you’ with Han Solo replying I know. Super nerdy but still very cute.
