Other things on your mind besides Valentine’s Day this year? Simply too busy to deal yet? Or did the holiday just straight up sneak up on you? No need to worry… You’re not too late to get into the Valentine’s Day spirit! Today I am sharing a round-up of my favorite last-minute Valentine’s Day ideas (for food and drink, activities and crafts, DIY décor, and Valentine’s cards and gifts). Oh, and they are all fabulous (of course), and easy (my fave). For more inspiration, follow my Valentine’s Day inspiration board on Pinterest, but read on for some of my favorite, last-minute ideas!
Food and Drink
Activities and Crafts
Toilet Paper Roll Hearts. I’ve done this before, and it is both super easy and really cute. Great V-Day craft for little kids who can’t draw or cut hearts as easily. Bonus – you get to reuse/upcycle old TP rolls!
Valentine’s Cards and Gifts
As a “Pinterest Mom,” I do feel pressure to have cute, homemade Valentine’s Day cards for my sons. But to be honest, I don’t do it every year. It’s all about balance, and some years I just don’t have the bandwidth. Luckily, the kids never mind, as they are just as fine with store-bought Star Wars cards as a homemade Pokémon version. But there’s a great middle-of-the-road option! If you don’t have time or creativity to design and make your own, there are so many adorable printable options (free on Pinterest, or low-cost and customizable on Etsy) that give you that one-of-a-kind/homemade feel without much effort on your part. If you have car lovers, check out my DIY Car-Themed Kids Valentine Idea + Free Printable.
I hope this gave you a bit of last-minute inspiration for Valentine’s Day! For more ongoing inspiration, don’t forget to follow Fab Everyday on Pinterest if you’re not already.
