Today’s Friday Five is ten Valentine’s gift ideas! Whether your significant other is a guy or a girl, there’s a Friday Five for both. 🙂

For Him:

beer-nerd-1Beer Nerd, it’s a beer tasting trivia board game. If the guy in your life is a beer connoisseur this would be a really cute and fun gift. The game requires some ‘blind taste tests’ so it would be cute to pair it with a six pack of various beers!

For Her:

il_570xN.415614315_n1eqI’ve personally been swooning over these heart cut out shirts by BGlorified Boutique since they were first featured  here on Crafting & Cupcakery. They have a variety of the heart cut out shirts in their shop so be sure to check out the selection! You can also send in your own shirt and have the heart cut out done by these fabulous ladies! I don’t know what girl wouldn’t adore this!

8949screenLast year for Valentine’s Day, Max made me a giant card that lit up. He made it all by himself. This gift meant more to me than any gift he’s ever bought me! Even if you don’t think you’re creative, give it a shot! Even if it’s not perfect, I’m sure the recipient will adore it and appreciate the effort! If you really doubt you’re creative abilities, shop locally for a handmade card. If you live in Southwest WI, check out the Valentine’s Day Card Sale at Shake Rag Alley in Mineral Point, WI.

Hope your weekend is full of adventure and things you love!
