So, are you? Have you thought about what you’re going to get that special someone in your life? If not, below is a wonderful list of suggestions!
The point of Valentine’s Day, today, is to celebrate and show your significant other that they are loved. A common way to do this is to give a gift! Something I have found to be incredibly helpful when giving a gift is the simple rule of thumb: get them something they want, something they need, something they’ll wear, or something they’ll read. I’ve put together a unique Him/Her gift list for you to give you some great ideas.
A “Want” for Him
If your man is into the new Fallout that just came out, these shot glasses are for him! You can find them at PK7art
A “Want” for Her
In my opinion, you can never go wrong with an adorable coffee mug… and if you want to fill it with Hershey’s Kisses, I fully support that decision. You can find mugs like this one at MixMugs
A “Need” for Him
How cool is this contraption?! This is the perfect gift for his office, you can find this at flipprTEC
A “Need” for Her
If your lady friend leaves her house, I’m willing to bet she takes a bag with her. This nautical bag is only one of the many adorable totes you will find at MaggieAnn’s
A “Wear” for Him
No one will be able to crack the “Time to get a watch” joke with this trendy time-teller! Find more watches like this one at the TreeHutDesign
A “Wear” for Her
A mermaid has no fear of depths, but a great fear of shallow living. Does this sound like your lady? Then this Moonglow Mermaid Necklace would be perfect, you can find this and more like it here at AimeezArtz
A “Read” for Him
The Legend of Zelda is such a classic, it really Links hearts *wink *wink, you can find this card at playerNo2
A “Read” for Her
This card is, simply, romantic! You can find this card, and cards like it at NaturePals
DIY Bottle Opener for Him
To complete this project you will need:
- A 2X4 piece of wood
- Bottle Opener for the Wall (I got this unique one at WorldMarket)
- Mason Jar
- Hot Glue Gun (If you get Velcro with a sticky side you will not need the Hot Glue Gun)
Step One: Sand your 2X4 thoroughly, including the corners and edges
Step Two: After sanding your board will be dirty. To clean it all you need to do is wipe it down with a damp rag.
*Hot Tip: If you would like your 2X4 to look polished you can rub in a light coat of coconut oil, but be sure to use this trick AFTER you apply the Velcro so the Velcro sticks to the 2X4
Look at that difference!
Step Three: Screw in the bottle opener with a screwdriver. My bottle opener came with screws
Step Four: Attach the soft side of the Velcro to the Mason Jar, and the prickly side of the Velcro to the the 2X4
Step Five: Buy a beer, soda, or anything in a bottle and come up with an awesome pun for this gift!
Dang, Bae, you’re looking fine
I’m so glad you’re my Valentine
What I wanted to do, was do an image transfer with wax paper onto wood… that didn’t turn out as I hoped.
It started out okay; I got the supplies, I sanded the board, and I cleaned it off with a damp rag
I chose the picture I wanted to use, saturated it, and defined it with contrast in Photoshop
Then I cut out a wax piece of paper the size of a printer piece of paper and printed the picture
The printer ate the wax… I know! I’ll tape it to the piece of paper
Uh, it still ate it… Hm… Maybe more tape will work?
It worked! Now I quickly pressed the paper onto the piece of wood with a credit card
Okay… that’s not too bad
But, where am I? And Justin looks smeared. Nope, this didn’t work out. I’ll try again later
