Bae-con roses

If you want to use a bit of creativity but don't have time to order anything online, try spending an afternoon making something both beautiful and delicious. These bacon roses were tried and tested - and were as ridiculous as they were brilliant!

All you need is bacon, maple syrup, toothpicks, some foliage and mood lighting. Then go wild with all the meat puns until your partner says "You're bacon me crazy"...

Stitch your own sweet (or sour) message

When thinking about gifts for friends I love anything that encourages a bit of reminiscence. Especially when it also involves food. Party snacks and goodie bag treats from childhood were probably the most fun and exciting gift as a kid. So I loved stitching this homage to the classic Love Hearts sweets by Swizzels Matlow - where you can choose your own love-related message! 

I used the Stitch Envelope Pouch and Rainbow Threads with Love Heart Template stitched on for this design. And I chose these phrases especially with 2020/21 in mind... 

Go cheeky or charming with your design, and then fill the pouch with a bundle of fun sweets (and classroom-style notes) that would brighten up anyone's Valentine's Day. 



I hope this gives you some ideas for unique gifts for V Day. If nothing else, remember how nice it is to receive love, any day of the year. And a little imagination goes a very long way...

Big love!
