Valentine’s Day is right around the corner.

How will you celebrate?

Are you stressed about finding the right gift, not having enough money or not quite knowing how to express your love?

How about an easy (and loving) homemade gift?

Create a Memory Jar or Love Bowl for your partner.

My siblings and I created a memory jar for my parents this Christmas.

We wrote down our favorite memories, things we love about them and things we appreciate.  We cut those into small pieces of paper, put them in a jar and added a ribbon.

The finished project looked like this and gave them fun memories to read about and share.

You can do a variation on the memory jar by filling it with things you love about your partner, things for which you are grateful or loving quotes.  You can use a pretty bowl, a nice basket or any other container to house your sweet sentiments.

This is an inexpensive and meaningful way to make your valentine feels special.
