valentine’s day gift ideas

So I have been thinking about valentine’s day for my family, picking up greeting cards here and some chocolates there.  But I am not sure what the main gifts will be.


So like with everything, I always look and review what I did the year before and the year before that, etc.  So I thought I would share what I did last year in case it inspires someone for this year.


I used a deck of cards to tell Mr. Masterpiece 52 different ways I love him.  It was super fun to create and pretty easy to put together.


I printed out the 52 reasons on plain paper and then cut them out in strips that would fit width wise on the cards.  I used a glue stick to attached the paper strips to the cards.


Then I hole punched the cards and attached the whole deck with binder rings.   It’s a thoughtful gift that only takes some time but costs nearly nothing.  I bought the cards at the Dollar Tree.


Mr. Masterpiece is also a great mixologist.  Yes, we enjoy a good cocktail.  I got him the oversized ice cube tray from Williams-Sonoma to add to his bar paraphernalia.  He’s not a big sweets guy so this is his candy.  LOL.


The Masterpiece kids on the other hand love chocolate and candy so I filled mason jars for each of them full of their favorite chocolate treats.


They also got a scented candle each for their bedrooms.  We all love to burn candles in this family.


Just some simple gifts to remind my family that I love them and think about them all the time.


They are my life!

  1. These are such cute gift ideas! We don’t buy gifts for Valentine’s day,
    it’s more like flowers & a date night together for us 🙂

  2. Lovely gift ideas! I’ve seen the 52 Ways… idea before but never with the cards put on rings before. I like that this makes the cards feel more like a flip book and would encourage the receiver to look back on it more frequently. I think I’ll have to give this DIY a go! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  3. I still don’t know what to do for Valentine’s day and what to buy to my bf but this idea is so amazing.

  4. What great gift ideas! I wish someone would do neat stuff like that for ME! I do little things for my kids and the grands. Boyfriend is not too much of a romantic but I got enough chocolates at Christmas from everyone that I still won’t need Valentine’s chocolate! At work, I once told an affiliating student that women should get flowers, perfume, chocolate, and jewelry for Valentine’s Day. Come the day, she came in, laden with gifts for me; a single cheap silk rose, several Avon perfume sample packets, a baggie with a handful of Hershey kisses (she knew I was dieting), and a child’s crown/bracelet/ earring set from the dollar store! What a hit! I promptly put on the jewelry and going through a doorway, I startled someone who had a mad on at me into saying hello; she hadn’t spoken to me for over a year! What fun!

  5. How sweet! You really come up with great gifts! I give my kids a few small items each year. Husbands are hard to get for, though! You’ve got my wheels turning…….thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm.
