Handmade Valentine Gift Guide
If ever there is a perfect outfit for Valentine’s Day then my money is on the fact that it would include these Leather Heart Knee Leggings • £16.69 • ShopFlattery
You know what, lovebirds? Valentine’s Day is just around the corner – literally, we only have one more week before the Big Day!
Now, I don’t much go in for the standard issue dozen red roses and a box of supermarket chocs. I’m the kind of girl that prefers something with a little more thought, a little more wow – and by wow I don’t mean £££!. I’m talking about a quirky illustrated card, a homemade cake (my husband makes a mean Vicky Sponge!) and a spur of the moment adventure in the great outdoors.
So, this year, let’s not have another Hallmark holiday, let’s pick out something handmade or make something with our own fair hands to show our loved ones just how much we cherish them! I’ve been stalking out the best tokens of love over on Etsy, so check out my Valentine’s Day Gift Guide…
