Day 6 of 14: DIY Valentine’s Gifts for your Sweetheart finds our writers discussing great Home Depot products or projects for gift ideas. In today’s edition, Caroline shows Jae how cooking on a floor tile can impress your sweetie.
Jae: I don’t know what all the fuss is about Valentine’s Day gifts. I say go old school. I say give a little box of those heart-shaped Valentines candies, like the ones you used to get in grade school with the “Be My Valentine” messages on them. You know – cute and kitschy.
Caroline: You’re joking right? Good luck with that.
Jae: Isn’t everyone always saying, “It’s the thought that counts … yadda, yadda”.
Caroline: That is a very important sentiment, but the message you’d be sending with that particular “thought” is, “I completely forgot Valentine’s Day so I got you this candy on my way home from work.”
A much more thoughtful gift would be a homemade dinner with your special someone.
Something easy would be a homemade pizza. Even you could do it, Jae. Think of cooking a pizza as a DIY Valentine’s gift.
