Valentines Day should be about celebrating love, not how much money you spend, for me the best gifts are always those that we put a bit of thought and effort in to. I love the idea of making your own valentines day gifts, but if your life is too busy for that I’ve put a few quicker but still thoughtful ideas in here.
My favourite Valentine’s Day Gifts for Geeks
Go old school and make a mixtape 🙂 Burn it to a CD and design your own case, or create them a Spotify playlist.
Bake some cupcakes or brownies. I think the best brownie recipes are ones that are gluten free, flour dries them out too much for me they need to be fudgey! Try these Ooey Gooey Gluten Free Brownies from Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diary.
Hand Made Paper Flowers
Hand made Valentine’s day flowers are a lovely alternative to roses. The Craft Fantastic will make them from paper tailored to your favourite geeks interests. How about flowers made from comic books, sheet music or maps?
Knit a Gift
A knitted or crochet scarf will almost literally wrap them in your love! Use chunky yarn with big needles for a quick gift, like this Tasseled Garter Stitch Color Block Scarf from Love Knitting.
Well buy them a book (or a book token), what would make them happier!? If you need help choosing a book, comment and tell me what genre they like and I’ll think up some suggestions for you!
And if all else fails
Candles are always a nice little gift, or plan an evening with some nice food you both like, and a good film 🙂
If you have suggestions please comment and share your ideas!
