Valentine’s Day is such a special celebration for all couples – both young and old. It’s meant to symbolize your love for each other and offer you a day out of the calendar which you can dedicate to and celebrate with your loved one.
Unfortunately, just like pretty much every other holiday or celebration with a social aspect to it, Valentine’s Day has been hi-jacked for commercial reasons, resulting in throngs of teddy bears and heart-shaped chocolates, but tending to lose its true meaning.
Thankfully, in spite of this, there’s still a large number of people out there who understand the fact that the 14th of February needs to be about symbolism as opposed to commercialism and, each year, they make a special effort to create homemade Valentine gifts for their beloved – gifts made with lashings of love, and that are unique. These individuals understand that the true meaning behind the Valentine celebration is to show their partner just how much they mean to them – and this they do by dedicating time, care and love to the gift, as opposed to money.
Modern technology has made creating great personalized gifts and items much easier, so you can pretty much go one of two ways when it comes to making homemade Valentine gifts – you can choose the more traditional route or the more modern one.
One traditional idea for a Valentine’s Day gift is to create a special scrapbook for your beloved. This is a relatively easy and affordable gift to make, but the time and thought you put into it will surely be much appreciated by your partner.
The first thing you’ll need do is select which photographs you wish to use, and this is when you can also choose a theme for your scrapbook. Perhaps you’ll pick a few photos of each other taken separately before you met, followed by your meeting and continuing with your days together. Or, if you’ve been together some time, you may prefer pictures taken in places that have a certain meaning for you both – or any other theme you feel would be appropriate.Image Source : Pinterest
