Printed with love: DIY Valentine’s gifts

Can you believe that it’s almost Valentine’s Day? It took us by surprise as well this year – so we’re sharing some quick-and-easy DIY gift ideas for your lucky loved one.

Flowers and chocolates are lovely, but a homemade gift (or one with a personal touch) is so much more meaningful.

Here are five simple ways to show him, her (or mom) how much you care:

  1. Custom wine labels
    Treat that someone special to their very own Valentine’s Day Vintage by creating a personalised label and pasting it on a bottle (or case) of their favourite wine. You could even label the sparkling wine that you plan to serve with the meal if you’re organising a special dinner or picnic for two. Printing your own wine labels is so easy with Tower’s range of Valentine’s Day labels.
  2. Personalised treats
    Create a one-of-a-kind jar filled with biscuits, jam or jellybeans for your sweetheart. All you have to do is remove the label from an existing product or fill a clear glass jar with your loved one’s favourite goodies. Then design and print your own custom-made label with Tower’s help. There are a range of A4 labels to choose from. Once you have selected your variant, simply download the template and print your labels at home or the office.
  3. Valentine’s playlist
    A mix-tape (on CD) does take a little effort to put together, but it makes a big impact as a gift. Why not put together a playlist of your favourite songs, or tracks that mean something special to you and your Valentine, and then personalise the CD with print-at-home labels from Tower? You can put a cool photo of the two of you on the front of the CD, as well as design and print your own inserts for the jewel case.
  4. Photo album
    When last did you print out your photos and compile an album? With Valentine’s Day coming up, now’s the perfect time to do just that. Pick your favourite photos of you and your partner, best friend or little one and print them at home using Tower’s photo quality paper. Compile an album and give it as a gift!
  5. DIY fridge magnets
    A great way to remind someone that you love them every day is to craft a range of personalised fridge magnets. You can paint pebbles, print out happy snaps and glue these to sturdy card, or even use Scrabble tiles sealed with clear varnish for instant fridge poetry. To make these magnetic, you can use Tower’s magnetic tape. Simply roll out the length you need, cut on the cutting edge and stick to your designs using the self-adhesive side of the tape.
