V-Day DIY Ideas

Valentine’s Day is one short week away, and now’s the time to start thinking about what you plan to give the special someone (or someones) in your life. While many people resort to buying their valentines gifts, I think something handmade can go a lot farther towards showing someone you care about them, don’t you?

For your loved one, for your family, or a party for friends; I’ve gathered up a few recipes that may breathe some life into the day of love.

In other places around the world, though, traditions can be pretty different from ours!
