6 creative Valentine’s Day gift ideas

for the whole family to get involved in

The 14th of February is just around the corner, and while couples around the world are searching for their favourite romantic recipes, stocking up on heart-shaped gifts and compiling special playlists, if you’re part of a family you can bring everyone into the fun.

Below you’ll find six simple and sweet arts and crafts ideas to keep little hands busy sharing the love:

Nothing says I love you – quite literally – like a handwritten note. Make Valentine’s Day cards even more special with these homemade potato stamps.

Fresh herbs can be used in a number of ways and make for perfect little presents. A mini herb garden is a great addition to any kitchen, and this 5-minute rosemary and thyme scrub will work wonders for your next flavoursome family dinner.

For a classic kiddie craft why not create cute papier-mâché decorations? Don’t let any paper go to waste – use an old Spinneys FOOD mag, card and foil, and some plain flour to make these fun decorations.

Show off your sweet side in the kitchen and help little ones with these easy recipes: a rhubarb Valentine’s tart dotted with dough hearts is a great tea-time treat for everyone, or bring an element of art to the table with an edible fruity arrangement.

While we won’t blame you for getting caught up in all this family fun, don’t forget that you can also buy a number of gifts from Spinneys stores, from fluffy Me to You bears and cute mugs, to Oh So Heavenly gift sets, gorgeous cheeses and more. Make Valentine’s Day special with Spinneys.
