Last Minute Valentine

Wednesday, February 12th, 2014

So we’re going to assume that you’ve sorted your Valentine’s day card thanks to our new ‘Cheesy Valentine’ ecard - but what about a present?

Whether you’ve been trying hard to avoid it or just haven’t had the time to organise anything fancy, Valentine’s Day is almost here. But never fear, Katie’s Cards is here to share some of last minute gift ideas from around the web that just happen to be pretty economical too.

Personalised Sharpie Mugs

You can find design ideas for these all over Pinterest but we really liked the idea of personalised Mr and Mrs mugs. You could even add a special date to the handle. We’ve also heard on the grape vine that the cheaper the mug, the better the result – so don’t worry about raiding your Granny’s china cupboard, a cheap mug from the supermarket or Ikea should do the job.

Love Pegs

We saw these a couple of days ago and shared them on our Facebook page. Turn an everyday run of the mill clothes peg into a secret love message for a Valentine that won’t leave them hanging.
