A Customized Basket Full of Goodies
Create a basket full of goodies customized for your loved one. This can be anything from candy to personalized gifts. For example, you could create a basket with all their favorite candies or put together an entire gift set complete with perfume and slippers. These are just some ideas that will inspire you when it comes time to customize the perfect basket filled with treats they love.
You can make the customized basket by following the steps below:
- Choose a sturdy basket that will be able to hold all the goodies you put inside
- Line the bottom of the basket with some tissue paper or cloth to protect whatever you’re putting in it
Try and think outside the box and start filling up your basket with items related to your loved one’s interests and hobbies. This could be anything from movie tickets to a book they’ve wanted to read or personalized valentines shirts.
- If you want, you can also include a personalized note or card for them tucked away among the gifts
- Finish off by tying a pretty ribbon around the top of the basket and giving it to your loved one.
They’ll love being surprised by this unique gift idea that has been explicitly customized for them.

A Photo Collage
This is a great gift idea for those loved ones who love to remember all the memories they’ve shared with you and want something that will allow them to display these photos in their home without having too much clutter or taking up space on their walls. All it takes is some pretty patterned paper, scissors, glue sticks, and tape.
Start by cutting out your favorite pictures from old magazines or newspapers and make sure they’re clean. You can vary things like the size and color of each piece and play around with different pieces of patterned paper. If there’s any text on certain photos, make sure you cut this off before continuing onto step two.
Now, take the adhesive side of the glue stick and place it onto your photo.
Place your paper on top of this image so that you can see where you want to put each piece down before actually doing so. Use tape if necessary to secure everything in place.
Once done, go ahead and start gluing away. Let dry overnight before removing any remaining adhesive from the backside using rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball or swab.
Start at the bottom with your most significant pieces first, then work towards smaller ones around them or switch things up by starting with small pieces and ending with larger ones for a fun design element. If there are multiple photos, find creative ways to overlap these images without making them look messy or think about how dominoes connect.
Hang your photo collage up on the wall or give it as a gift to someone special.
