Although flowers and chocolate will never get old, let’s make something even better.
What makes the perfect gift? Use + thought. If you make something useful, and you’re thoughtful about it, you really can’t go wrong.
So here’s our top 3 gift ideas for your boo thang.
1. Hand-painted coffee mug.
PRO TIP: You can use an actual sharpie if you don’t want to go to the craft store to get enamel paint. However, the best paint to use would be bake-able Folkart Enamel paints, and then the second most durable would be Sharpie Oil Paint Pens.
2. Tote-ally cool.
PRO TIP: You can also use sharpies of any kind on fabric! Other options are acrylic paint, fabric paint, or Rit Fabric Dye. However, your tote should be hand-washed to avoid any bleeding on the rest of your laundry.
…because fresh flowers only last so long. Paint the pots using acrylic paint (or Sharpies again), and find some dirt outside. Lowes sells succulents year round, and they’re typically less than $5 a piece. It’s that easy.
