A Side-note:  Good luck deciding which gift to make, they are all so tempting!!! Click on the title to be sent to that idea.

1.  Love Letters and Children’s Books by The Crafting Chicks

Dress up your old candles with tissue paper. Print some of your favorite pictures and sweet messages onto tissue paper, heat to the candle, and you’ve created very special candles.

3.  DIY Sharpie Dinnerware by The Sweetest Occasion 

Aren’t these lovely?! Think of all the cute messages you could write on your dishes.  Would be fun to decorate a plate, cup, and bowl with sharpies just for him.   If you love Pride and Prejudice then you have to check out The Phobia for a cute pair of cups she bought from Brookish Etsy Shop (sadly this shop no longer carries these mugs).  Might give you ideas for a simple yet adorable message.
