Homemade Valentine's Day Gifts

Feb 02, 2016

Valentine’s Day is a great time to show your loved one how you feel, but what do you do if you're broke? Don't worry, Kidzworld's got you covered with the Top 10 Homemade Valentine's Day Gifts!

10. Mix CD

Gather all your favorite love songs together on one mix and show your loved one how much you care by making a special case to hold the CD. Cut a rectangular strip of paper twice as long as the CD, put the CD in the middle of the strip and fold up to create your pocket case. Decorate the case with photos or try gluing together pics from old magazines.

9. Decorated Candy Jar

Whether your loved one likes sweet tarts or cinnamon hearts, a decorated jar filled with their favorite treats is a thoughtful and simple gift for Valentine’s Day. You can glue transparent tissue paper to the outside or leave the glass exposed so you can see the candy inside. Finish it off by tying brightly-colored ribbons around the lid.

8. Conversation Heart Brownies

Baking is always an easy, inexpensive way to show someone you care. Get an adult to help you mix together a simple brownie recipe, then top the baked brownies with icing and conversation hearts—your bf/gf will be speechless!


7. Photo Scrapbook

Even if you can’t afford fancy scrapbooking supplies, you can still make a great photo album with just a few photos, some construction paper and glue. Choose 5-10 pieces of construction paper to make your album then staple them together into a booklet. Cut out heart shapes from red, pink and white paper to line the photos like a frame, then paste the framed photos into your book.

6. Draw Their Portrait

If you’re lucky enough to be artistically-inclined, why not draw a portrait of your loved one? You can use photos as a guide, or just go by memory.

5. Make An Origami Heart

Start with a 6” x 6” piece of paper. Fold it in half then open it back up. Fold the other side in half and open it back up so you have 2 creases on the paper. Fold the top point of the paper to meet the center crease then fold the bottom point to meet the top. Now fold the right side to meet the center crease. Then fold the left side to meet the center crease. Now just fold down the pointy ends of the heart and you’re done!

4. Write A Poem

Capture your feelings for your loved one in a heartfelt poem. If you’re not a fan of sentimental gifts, try writing a goofy poem instead—your bf/gf will appreciate your wacky sense of humor.

3. Sidewalk Art

Get some sidewalk chalk and draw different-colored hearts on each block of the sidewalk on the route your bf/gf walks home. Better yet, draw a mural on the sidewalk outside their house.

2. Shoebox Of Memories

Decorate an old shoebox with bows, glitter and hearts then fill it with keepsakes from your relationship. Don’t forget to include ticket stubs, silly photos and sweet love notes.

1. Thank-You Jar

Write thank you notes for your bf/gf on notes and tie them to chocolate kisses. Put them in a jar and have your loved one open the jar every day until the notes run out.

Hi! I'm making this so I can get commissions to draw something from someone. I love doing commissions, and I love drawing :3 If you'd like to request something, here's what I'll need to know. Note: I tend to do humans (mostly OCs for people) and fail at inanimate objects/plants/animals, but I can try XD Style: Realistic (Hardest for me) *A selection of a head shape. Like, oblong, square, oval, etc., and if you don't know all them or what they look like, look up some charts of head shapes, and pick your favorite. Or just, whatever your character has XD *A body type. Chubby, skinny, average, toned, etc. *Height, generally. I'm not good at putting a height effect in, but I can try :P *Eye shape. Good to look up a chart for this, too, and choose the one you like. Also say whether or not they're wide-spaced, close-set, or the classic one-eye-apart. Note, though, that Africans/African-Americans tend to have wide-spaced eyes. *Ethnicity. European, African/African-American, Asian, etc... it's good to know, since some ethnicities have different proportions than others. And yeah, Google doesn't think "ethnicities" is a word. I'm not sure either XD *Age. It'll make a difference in heads tall. *Gender. It'll make a difference in features. *Hair color, hair length, and a good description or image example of what it's styled like. *A good description or an image example of what the person wears. *A good description or an image example of what the pose the person is doing is. *If you prefer, it can be done in black-and-white. You don't have to include colors if you want black-and-white. That's all I can think of for that style, so if you think of anything else, please add it in! X3 You can also just use embedded images for all of the areas, if you so wish. If you desire to see my skill level before you request a drawing, I'll be posting an example of each style I do this weekend. Now... for anime/manga. *Essentially the same as realistic, but with the eyes, it's best to provide examples for the shape of the eyes. Anime/manga elements should be included, too :P That's all. If you have some other style I should try, or have some tips on how I can improve, please tell me! ^-^ I already know I need to work on clothing wrinkles for sure, so any help on that is greatly appreciated. (Eventually, over the weekend, I'll make forms for each individual style... And an example of my work in each form.) Oh! Media forms! Here's what I offer, and the time expected... Pencil and paper (Just shading): One day (1-2 commissions), 2-3 days (3-6 commissions), 3-5 days (7-10 commissions), 5+ days (11+ commissions). NOTE: ESTIMATES. Pencil and paper (In color): Same amount of time as the above. Digitally drawn (Longest): Five days (1-2 commissions), it really just depends though. Expect digital ones to take at least a week.

Kristin, usually, but sometimes they refer to me as "brilliant".   [s:p/1kuk] Ginger is also very common, and some of my internet friends call me Dan/ny. Other internet nicknames blossom from my usernames, such as how I'm often called "Poptart" here on KW.
