Take a Break: Make some last minute Valentine’s

With Valentine’s Day two days away, here are some very inexpensive gifts and cards to make for Valentine’s Day.

Design a Mug with Sharpies: Write or draw something on a light colored mug (or other porcelain dish) with a Sharpie. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Allow to cool completely before washing or using. These will need to be cleaned by hand. 

Send E-cards: Below are free on-line e-card options-note some include virtual flowers and chocolates

Flowers: I learned this from a florist- It’s okay to use flowers from the grocery store, Costco, Wal-Mart or even your local deli.  It’s what you do with them that counts. Arrange them in a nice vase or other container. If you need some help arranging them, check out these links:

If you need to send flowers, you can save money by calling a florist in the town where the person lives and discussing what’s in season, best prices, designs etc. Be aware that if you Google a local florist, the top sites may in fact not be local to the area you want. Get a phone number and call.
