How to make Valentine's Day gifts at home

Don't spend your life savings this Valentine's Day

We are here to help you give the best gifts without breaking the bank.

Valentine's Day 2017

For some of you reading this, we shall simply refer to 14 February as THAT day. For the rest of you, Valentine's Day is nearly here! Yay!

South Africans on the whole are loving people, so a day like Valentine's Day is the perfect excuse to get all cuddly and lovey-dovey with that special person in your life - or your mom, because we know how hard it can be playing the game of love.

EDIT: Maybe don't get all lovey-dovey and cuddly with your mom. That's just a tad weird if you are a guy.


While Valentine's Day is special, it can also be quite expensive. Shops tend to mark items up around this time of year, and things like flowers almost require you to take out a loan from the dodgy pawn shop you drove past on Saturday morning.

Yes, it is great to spoil the one you love, but it doesn't have to cost you your life savings and the coins hidden under the cushions of your couch!

This video, created by 'DIY Nikol & Alexandra', will help you to create amazing gifts at home, with minimal amounts of cash needing to exit your purse or wallet.

Watch the video below and let us know if you are going to give any of these fantastic ideas a shot.
