Homemade Valentine's Day Gift Ideas

Feb 09, 2012

Valentine's Day is the day to show your crush how you feel. It could be in the form of a dozen red roses, blingin' jewelry, or a homemade present from the heart. Check out Kidzworld's homemade gift ideas to give to your sweetie this Valentine's!

Tasty Treats

Nothing says I love you more than food, so grab that apron and get to work in the kitchen. You can bake chocolate chip cookies, heart-shaped cupcakes, brownies, or even a whole cake. Use sprinkles and frosting to draw on hearts, or write cute messages like B MINE and 4EVER. Then put the munchies in a jar or tin can and wrap a big, red ribbon around it.

One-of-a-Kind Cards

Instead of buying a Valentine's card at the mall, put your own personal touch on the card by making it yourself. One idea is to make paper hearts by folding red paper in half, cutting a half-heart and then writing a special note inside. Or, fold a posterboard to make a giant-sized card and write something like, "I love you to Reese's Pieces" - but glue on the chocolate bar instead of the words. If you want to jazz up your card, then decorate it with dried flowers, glitter, lace and pics of you and your crush together.

Candied Hearts

This is a great idea if ya happen to have any candy canes left over from Christmas. It involves using a hot glue gun, so your mom or dad will have to help you out. Line up two candy canes to form a heart and attach it with glue (make sure to keep the candy cane wrappers on). Tie the top of the candy cane heart with ribbons and other fun decorations.
