Thrifty Thursday – Thrifty Valentines Gift

Thrifty Valentine Gift

I'm not really one for celebrating Valentines day, as far as I'm concerned it is just a way of making people spend money on a load of cheap tut that will ultimately get thrown in the bin the next day. It's consumerism at it's worst, well that and Grandparents day! Who on Earth came up with that one, oh I know the card companies, funny that. Anyway I digress back to the subject.

This year I decided that I would stop being a miserable old fart and actually do something for the other half but I challenged myself to create something for free and this is what I did...

 Thrifty Valentines Gift - Reasons Why I love You

To make it I used an old coffee jar, stripped off all the labels and stuck on my own label. I then found a bit of ribbon from my present box and tied it to the top. I filled it up with paper hearts, which I wrote the reasons why I love my other half on.

Simple and didn't cost me a penny.

    LOVE this idea Gina. We don’t do Valentines Day because it’s our wedding anniversary around the same time, but I might just steal this idea as have been drawing a blank for anniversary gifts this year ;-)
