Hi! My name is Ellen and you can find me regularly at Thrifty & Chic Mom where I blog about money saving, do reviews and giveaways, share recipes and generally talk about being a mom, come on over and say Hi sometime.

I am excited to share with you some ideas for homemade Valentine’s while Becky enjoys Blissdom!

  • Box of Love: This is a great craft for grandparents or parents from a child. Have you child decorate a box then “fill” it with kisses. Close it and tie with a bow to keep all those kisses in and send or deliver to a loved one.
  • Cookie bouquet: These are easier than you think just bake your favorite cookies and insert a long rod into the cookies as soon as you pull them out of the oven ( you can buy at local craft store) Once cooled arrange like a flower bouquet.
  • 10 things list: This is great for a spouse you make a list of 10 things here are a few topics you can use, 10 reasons I fell in love with you/love you, my 10 favorite things about you, 10 reasons I am glad I married you, 10 reasons you are the best dad/husband
  • Heart candles (watch Martha’s video here)
  • Heart tea bags: Cut two hearts out of red construction paper, write a short message on one of the hearts. Next, remove a tea-bag tag and, at the end of the string, affix two hearts, back-to-back, using double-sided tape or a stapler. Package bags to give as a present, or steep one in hot water and serve.
  • Button heart cuff links: Make these for these men in your life, instructions here
  • Make homemade goodies in the shape of hearts
