Special Valentine’s Day gifts

Looking for an unusual gift for Valentine’s Day? If so, take a look at our hand-decorated jar filled with love vouchers. For this idea, you need to come up with a selection of things you would enjoy doing together with your partner, one for each month - or even week - of the year, or a little treat they would enjoy. It doesn’t have to cost much – it could just be a walk, a visit to the cinema, a cosy evening at home watching TV, or a joint cooking session. It really doesn’t matter what you choose. The main thing is to have a nice time together. Designing the jar is really easy when you use edding gloss paint markers, as the ink they contain is completely opaque so it shows up really well on dark surfaces. As well as vouchers, you could also fill the jar with heart-shaped balloons hand-decorated with loving messages. We show you how, step by step.
