Creating Valentine's Day gifts do not have to be complicated or expensive. I had the chance to get several items from Oriental Trading to showcase some Valentine's Day gifts filled with love. They are perfect for gifts to give parents or grandparents.
Mom Owl Windchimes
We made these by untying the string that holds the chime. Then we added the owl charms to each chime string. Then we couldn't get the string to securely tie back into place. So, we decided to use the washi tape to hold it all in place. It didn't turn out as pretty as it was in my mind, but it still used the owls in a cute manner. Since it came from the kids to my mother-in-law I wasn't worried about her being disappointed. (Which she loves it.) I personally love the owls!
Give them an Owl of Love
Valentine Owl Picture Frame Kit's are something that Zeva loves to give out. She wanted to include her picture on these to give out to family and friends this holiday season. Since we have so many owl lovers in the family she chooses these cute birds. (Warning: You need a really small image to frame them in the hearts.It comes with a 2 1/4″ x 2″ heart-shaped photo space.)
You're The Change My Heart Needed! Piggy Banks
My kids and I both loved the DIY Ceramic Heart Shaped Banks.There are so many opitions for what you can do with these lovely well made banks. We decorated some with the Black and White Patterned Washi Tape. While others got painted and others were simply given special messages.
As you can see from the above examples there are plenty of cheap and simple gifts filled with love that you can make with your kids or they can even do on their own for Valentine's Day or other special occassions. Be sure to check out Oriental Trading's Valentine's Day section on their website for more ideas.
