  • Popsicle stick frames
    These cute frames are a great gift idea – give to daddy from mummy or just from the kids to their dad for his desk at work. Add a little magnet on the back and it can be kept on the fridge too!

  • Love notes jar
    This one’s authentic, touching AND easy – a jar full of reasons why your Valentine is loved. The whole family can add their notes (which is bound to create a few laughs!) which are then added to a jar, decorated and given as a gift that just keeps on giving.
  • Heart luminaries/suncatchers
    DIY Valentine’s Day house décor just got easier thanks to this easy candle holder craft. We also like the idea of these tissue paper mosaic suncatchers for even more colourful Valentine’s home décor.

  • Thumb print keepsakes/magnets
    OK, so more than anything we love the pun “Thumb body loves you”, which you could use for any number of lovely Valentine’s Day crafts, but these cute thumbprint magnets are a little bit different and sure to bring a smile to the recipient!
