A Few Last Minute Valentine Ideas

Valentines day is TOMORROW, so we've compiled a few little last minute ideas that will go down a treat. So don't panic if youve left it till the last possible moment to get a gift or card, because hopefully we'll be able to help with a few quick ideas

The Card...
Everyone appreciates a little bit of time and effort when it comes to gifts and cards, so 'hand-made' is always a great bet! You don't need to be particularly creative or artistic to make a card funny and personal. Here are a few of our favourite ideas...

A little line of text and a cute doodle is all you really need. 
Or if you do have enough time to pop to the shops to buy a card, take a look at our favourite card shop, Scribbler (we have been known to spend rather a long time in here chuckling away at the cards!) 

Something sweet...
Have a little look back at our red velvet cupcake recipe here, the colour alone means they're perfect for the occasion! So scrummy too!

Or, head over to the wonderful blog 'milk bubble tea' for this lovely pink rice krispie heart bite recipe, a true valentines treat. 

A gift, or 2...
A lovely little homemade gift idea now; and so SO simple! All you'll need is a plain mug and a sharpie. 
Write, doodle, draw or scribble away on the mug, something funny or personal and then simply stick in the oven for about half an hour and you're away (surly the easiest valentines gift going?) 

It might also be a nice idea to write down all your favourite memories into the shape of something sweet like a heart, or on a map of somewhere special! Frame this and you've got yourself another unique and personal gift. Not On The High Street have done something similar...

Or again, if you do have time to pop to the shops quickly, we've found a few gifts you may like or may fill you with inspiration...

We hope that whatever you are doing tomorrow, whether it be snuggling up eating pop-corn and watching Ryan Gosling movies with your besties (which will probably be what we do!) or being treated to a delicious dinner, we hope you have a wonderful day! We also hope this post has helped in your last minute Valentine's preparations! 
Lots of Love and Happy Valentines! Let us know what you get up to,
