Project ideas for Valentine's Day

We all know it's a silly holiday, but the women in your lives will still expect a present. Am I right? Yup...

Well I'm here to make your life easier with 10 gift ideas that are inexpensive and quick.

1) Make them a Jewelry Box - as simple as 5 walls and a lid. If you are more skilled, add some extra touches with designer knobs from Lee Valley or some drawers with individual components for their overpriced jewelry. Want to win extra points with your spouse? Include a new necklace inside... that's got to give you at least a few months worth of no cleaning duties!
The very talented Jack Belletrutti built this stunning jewellery box.

2) Turn a pen in their favourite colour and engrave their name, easy! We also have red velvet bags to put the pen in so it can get lost in their purse slightly less often...

3) Make some candle sticks! So many different options... turn, carve, drill... whatever. Set the mood with a few tea lights, cook her a lovely meal and you have survived another Valentine's Day!

4) Make a cutting board or a serving tray...  present it with a bottle of wine and a single long stemmed rose.

5) Build a custom picture frame... size, shape and colours combinations are endless!

6) What woman doesn't like jewelry.. turn a bracelet

7) Get a nice tasting wine and pair it with a wine stopper

8) Make a wine rack. There are so many designs in varying difficulty levels. Select their favourite colour and find a wood that matches. Chop, chop, nail, nail, polish, polish and voila! Make sure to drink the wine after the rack is completed...

9) Make a jewelry holder!
