Homemade Valentines day ideas
Under a fiver!
So here are some of my Valentines day ideas that I have put together to save you money and still give someone an excellent valentines day gift to give your partner.
I have searched my local stores to come up with two fantastic homemade and incredibly cheap Valentines day ideas for your loved ones that won’t cost you the earth.
How to make this Valentines Teddy & Handmade Chocolate gift
All you need is:
Valentines teddy (The one I used cost £1.99 from The Card Factory)
Cellophane bags for chocolates £1.00 for a pack of 10 from Poundland
Cellophane wrap (I already had this, but is available from Hobbycraft starting at £4.50 per roll)
Melting chocolate 69p Aldi
Chocolate heart mould 99p (comes with issue 1 of Something Sweet) or to save even more time you can use ready-made chocolate hearts available from the Pound Shop and most supermarkets.
Large Bow or ribbon for decoration
Step 1 – Place your homemade chocolate hearts into the cellophane wrappers and tie with the red ribbon included
Step 2 – attach the chocolates you made (above) to the teddy’s arm so it stays in place (Place them in cellophane and tie a red ribbon around see below).
Step 3 – Cut enough cellophane wrap to cover the teddy and enough left for decoration at the top.
Step 4 – Gather the cellophane up on each side and fasten with an elastic band to secure at the top.
Step 5 – attach a bow or ribbon of your choice to decorate.
Total Cost £ 3.69 as I already had a roll of cellophane and a bow, but cellophane is cheap and last’s forever.
This is the easiest gift you can make for any occasions including Mother’s day and Birthdays.
Valentines Photo Snow Globe
Shower your favorite photo in hearts thanks to this custom snow globe that I found in my local Pound store, I inserted a picture of me and my husband on one side and a picture of my husband and boys on the other.
An ideal little gift for your Valentine gift ideas for under a pound!
I would love to know what Valentines gift ideas you have planned or even what you have done in the past.
