Homemade Valentines Day Gifts

Sometimes there are years when we just wanna buy ready-made stuff.

Sometimes making something from scratch just sounds so exhausting. Sometimes we don’t even want to think about it let alone create it.

Sometimes all we want to do is to buy the box of Valentine’s Day cards and have our kids sign their names on them without having to get all extra fancy schmancy Pinterest-y and making personalized, individualized, customized, one-of-a-kind gifts for each kid in their class knowing all along that once they get home they are chucking that homemade gift because it didn’t contain what they really wanted…candy.
