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.

Breakfast in Bread

Breakfast in bed is old hat, so liven things up a bit by getting creative in the kitchen.

Serve up a tasty treat of egg in the (love heart) basket with an extra decadent side of (love heart) bacon. Does there exist a thing on earth more overwhelming than love that’s bacon flavoured?

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

There are so many creative Easter craft ideas on Pinterest and I thought it’d be helpful to select a few of the best to help anyone who needs some inspiration:

These painted Easter eggs filled with gold glitter would add a touch of sparkle to any Easter table.

This is an adorable idea for decorating a kids’ table – Simply cut out a flower shape from colourful paper, fill a cupcake case with sweets and voila, you will have little edible daffodils strewn across the table.

These eggs capture the current ombre trend and look beautiful when hung in amongst a bunch of Spring tulips.
