5 Quick to Make Last Minute Valentine’s Gifts

This year is just speeding along, isn’t it? It seems we’re just over one holiday and another is fast approaching.

If you’re looking for some last minute Valentine’s items to make to give or for decoration, I’ve got some lovely ideas to share with you today.


Valentine’s Pips made using my Thimble Pip Tutorial are perfect for holding small gifts.

Reversible Tissue Box Covers would be great teacher gifts.

Make one side for Valentine’s:

And the reverse side for St. Patrick’s Day:

Reversible Tissue Box Covers are a gift that does double duty.

Perhaps even add in a few extra boxes of tissue to go along with it. Teachers are always in need of those kinds of supplies!

Coin purses made from my Coin Purse Tutorial are always well received:

Prairie Point Star Ornaments are still my most popular tutorial. They can be made in fabrics to suit the occasion or the individual taste of the maker or recipient.

Aren’t these Valentine’s one just lovely!

And last but definitely not least, I couldn’t resist making a Valentine’s version of my Archimedes Owl Pincushion.

Now she’s definitely too feminine to be called Archimedes, so we’ve decided she is Archimedes’ wife, Valentine. 🙂

The pattern to make Valentine can be purchased in my Craftsy Shop >>> Archimedes Pincushion
