Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas For The Décor Obsessed

 

Most everyone enjoys dressing up their home for special occasions and holidays: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s, and last but certainly not least, the sweetest day of the year – Valentine’s Day!

For home décor enthusiasts and DIY experts, creating unique and inventive furnishings and decorations for Valentine’s Day is a literal breeze… but what about all the rest of us? Let’s be honest, not everyone is a skilled artisan or a HGTV aficionado. However if you’ve got some creative ideas in mind and a little bit of initiative, you can easily make beautiful, fun-loving home décor that will uplift your spirits and literally knock the socks off that special someone! So, what are some of the best Valentine’s Day gift ideas and DIY tips out there for the décor obsessed?

Firstly, think outside of the box. Don’t give into buying kitschy items, or furnishing your home with lots of factory-made, store-bought decorations and furniture. Be inventive. Let that free spirit within you rule your choices and artistic, gift ideas.

If you want to totally wow the love of your life or BFF with some incredibly neat gift ideas, create handmade ornaments that say, “I love you” or “Be Mine”. Whether it’s a do-it-yourself romantic card made from recycled paper or a pair of heart-shaped painted wooden signs, the thought and creativity will be more than appreciated. In craft stores, you’ll find everything you need to create cutie-pie handmade sign or ornaments. Try using glitter, paint, decorative appliques, and jewellery to adorn your special piece of lovable art.

If you want to spruce up your home with thoughtful furnishings, consider buying solid wood furniture, which, in addition to looking nicer than the factory produced stuff, will last a lifetime. Your significant other will absolutely adore that you took the time to source only the finest furniture; get ideas from this furniture blog you are sure to love and get ready wrapping this big gift for Valentine’s Day!

Another idea for a DIY gift is to fill old-fashioned mason jars or antique perfume bottles with red, white, and pink beads, jellybeans or marbles. Place vintage-inspired lace or crochet doilies around the house, from dressers to dining room tabletops. Tie red ribbons around old food jars or small clear vases, and fill with colourful pastel flower petals. If there’s one day out of the year when you have permission to get a little kitschy with your design ideas, it’s Valentine’s Day.

You don’t even need to go crazy with the art supplies; want to create an easy Valentine’s Day gift using just a pair of scissors and cardboard? First, pencil out hearts and letters on a flat piece of either heavy construction paper or old cardboard. Afterwards, carefully cut out around your drawings to make the perfect decorations, using marking pens or paint to decorate each cut out. Later string the shapes with utility twine around your mantle, coffee table, or dining room chandeliers. If you are handy with a saw, you can create similar shapes by using particleboard or old slats of wood.

These are just a few ideas to wow that décor-obsessed person in your life. Remember, when it comes to decorations, do it yourself; when it comes to furniture, choose high quality, handcrafted, solid wood furniture.
