Spend less this Valentine’s Day with these DIY gifts

by Andrea Tay

“L is for the way you look at me, O is for the only one I see, V is very very extraordinary, E is even more than anyone I could love…”

This lovely song by Michael Buble indicates that the season of love is just around the corner. It doesn’t matter whether you are single, have a crush on someone or you are already attached to someone — life is all about turning something plain into something more meaningful. It is no doubt that we all love unexpected surprises in life, the adrenaline rush we tend to get is like fireworks exploding in the dark sky.

Counting down the days to Valentine’s day, you must be thrilled to prepare a special surprise for your loved ones. However, it might be difficult to find a gift that portrays your love and sincerity in one. Scratch buying overrated gifts and make one instead.

Nothing can compare than receiving a bouquet of flowers from your significant other. Instead of going to the florist and purchasing one, you can now go to a flower workshop and make one yourself. It might be a little work but it’s the thought and effort that matters. Then again just like the saying, it is the littlest things that matter the most.

Valentine’s Pom-Pom Bouquet


If fresh flowers are not on your list as they will wilt. Why don’t you make a cute little pom-pom bouquet instead? All you need are some yarn, ribbons, twines and green felt. It’s so cute and it makes a cute piece for your side table.

If your partner is someone who is obsessed with fragrances, then why don’t you create your own bath bomb. If this isn’t the most romantic idea ever, then we don’t know what else is.

Remember those good ol’ days when slime used to be the IT thing. Well, slime is not only for kids or a pre-historic trend. You can create your own slime piece and place it into a heart-shaped container. So when they open it up, it’ll reflect the idea of your heart-melting for them.  Plus, it can act as a stress ball as well.
