I’ve mentioned before that I wasn’t the type of person to celebrate Valentine’s Day and although that it’s true, I still shipped J a little something meaningful for the occasion. We both agreed that we wouldn’t be sending each other gifts or celebrating the holiday however, we did end up spending the day in burrito mode and watching Durarara!! (If you love anime just as much as I do, I would recommend watching this series. Every episode is filled with fantasy and mind boggling stories) together. And when I say together… that means, we’ll both be on the phone trying to sync the streaming episode. Ah, the perks of being in a long distance relationship right? A week before Valentine’s I was going through my arts & crafts bin and decided to create something small for him. I got the ideas from Pinterest a while ago and put my own twist to it to make it more personalized.
I took out these items from my bin but didn’t use all of them. Most of the items here are from the Dollarstore and from Michaels Crafts Store. I purchased 61ML mixed media adhesive with a fine tip a while ago from Michaels. It bonds to pretty well and it also dries clear. I purchased a bag of Red Fish and Worms gummies from Walmart. I was also able to get red the 3pc twine set for $1 from a local drugstore & a bag of red & white mini clothespins (30pc) for also a $1. The cards were premade and came as a pack, although I only needed 1 for J, I figured I would put the rest into good use in the future. **TIP: there are a lot of things that go on sale after Christmas that you can use towards Valentine’s Day. Most items can go on sale 50-80% off. And I love the ability to stock up for cheap!**
This gift didn’t have to be presented for Valentine’s Day but I figured I had some time to quickly do it, and why not? I do think it’ll be a cute gift to give to a significant other any other day, it doesn’t have to be for a certain occasion. It’s may be small but it’s a nice way to show your love and appreciation. It’s also nice to know it can easily create a smile on their face. I know it did for him.
