Homemade love card

A homemade, handwritten card can be a sure way of showing your thoughtfulness for the person you love. Being able to put your creativity and feelings into words shows how much you care and the length you’re willing to go just to express your love for that special person. 

The card can be designed based on the person you wish to gift and your expression put freely into words without any limitations. Whether it’s your fiancée, relative or just a friend, just put down the reason why you love them and show them how much you really care for them.

Handmade Heart Pillow

A handmade heart pillow is yet another great idea to express yourself to that special person. This can be done even if you don’t have sewing skills as there are different ways to approach the design. 

If you don’t want to sew, just get some fabric, glue, foam, pom-pom trim, and felt. Cut the heart shapes, customize your sweet Valentine’s phrase on the fabric, stuff the foam inside, and then glue the pieces together.
