Valentine’s Day Gift Guide, with a twist

The holiday season and the entire month of January have flown by! Before you know it, Valentine’s Day will be here and you’ll need a gift for your sweetheart. Last year our gift guide was a hit. This year we decided to do something a little different; we picked all handmade, vintage, and DIY gifts! Up-cycling, recycling, vintage, and supporting handmade are important to us, so enjoy our picks for your sweetheart while supporting great initiatives!

We Crusaders love vintage plates (we often use them for our cupcake photos) but we also love the tiered cupcake stands created with vintage plates! If you search, you can find one in just about any color/pattern that fits your sweethearts style.

This bakers necklace was too cute not to have on the gift guide. Handmade and available in other color options, this necklace is the perfect for a Valentine’s jewelry gift.

And because the ladies aren’t the only one’s who love cupcakes, here are some guy specific gift ideas:

The most important part of Valentine’s Day isn’t the about presents, it is letting the people you love know just how special they are. Take the time this Friday to call, text, make a trip, give a hug, write a note, or do whatever you can think to touch the hearts of the people you love.
