Ten Unique Handmade Gifts for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is all about showing your other half how much you care for them. The best way to do that is by adding your own personal touch to your gifts. We have found some interesting ideas that can help you in such important occasion. And, don´t forget that you can find all the material you need at www.letspackit.com.

  1. Fill a jar with a candle or candy and decorate with washi tape:

First of all I made two versions of the jar filled with candy that can inspire you. I used our own washi tapes, string and tags to decorate these jars and as you can see with a small budget you can make something cute and meaningful. You can do the same with candles or any other item you can think of.

The best way to wake up to a Valentine´s Day is to find a romantic message from your other half. And if you do it with washi tape you will not have to clean up anything, and it is totally safe for your walls. Look at the examples I found on Pinterest:
