Surprise Your Sweetie with an Embroidered Valentine’s Gift!

Roses are red and chocolates are fine, but wouldn’t you rather choose a design? You’re an artist, after all. If you really want to show some Valentine’s Day love, remember that Cupid’s arrow is nothing compared to your 90/14 Sharp Point Flat Shank Chrome Needle. There isn’t anything wrong with a heart-shaped box of chocolates but an embroidered gift is just, better. It takes the kind of handiwork, ingenuity, and dedication that you won’t find on a supermarket shelf.

Here are a few lovey-dovey ideas to get your fingers stitchin’.


Felt Conversation Heart Pillow

Embroidered Pillows Valentine's Gift

They say communication is the key to a healthy relationship. If you’re too shy to say it out loud, or you just want to poetically reiterate your love, try saying it with a cute Conversation Heart pillow. Now you don’t have to whisper sweet nothings – you can stitch them! The beauty of creating them yourself is that you are free to personalize them. You don’t have to stick to “KISS ME” or “GOT LUV?” You could include the recipient’s name, a brief declaration of adoration, or even an inside joke. Find the full tutorial here.

Embroidery Hoops Valentine's Gift

If you want to get the kids involved with a Valentine’s craft, ask them to help you make hoop art. Hoop art is the new canvassed print; very fashionable. It gives the room a whimsical, delicate, and unique feeling. Also, like it or not, kids are much more creative than adults so the resultant art is bound to be incredible. This is the perfect gift for family and friends. Find the full tutorial here.

When you want to spoil the children in your life, nothing will earn you some sweet sugar like a personalized Embroidery Buddy. With over forty Embroidery Buddies to choose from, there’s no doubt that your little someone will get what they love. There are sixteen inch frogs, tigers, pigs, and unicorns that are simple to embroider with this tutorial. Valentine’s Day gives you a wonderful excuse to remind the children in your life that they’re spoiled rotten with love from you.

Kiss the Cook Valentine's Gift

“Kiss the Cook” Apron

Who else should you spoil on Valentine’s Day? The exceptional chef (or even the microwave master) who graciously fills your plate with delicious (though occasionally questionable) substances. Spoil them with an embroidered “Kiss the Cook” apron. You can find a variety of cooking and baking related embroidery designs to choose from here.

Disclaimer: The apron won’t magically transform your amateur hash slinger into a classically trained culinary artist. Try to appreciate the charming moment when they attempt to flip a pancake and drench your hard work in uncooked Valentine’s Day breakfast.

Valentine's Gift Monogram

Embroidering Initials

If you want to seriously vamp up the romance this Valentine’s Day, forget the apron. There is something so incredibly romantic and underrated about carving a heart with initials into a tree. The only thing better is taking that heartfelt art inside, where they can obsessively glance at it and daydream about the future. It may not be as permanent as tree-carving but embroidering initials onto a throw pillow or a flour sack towel is just as cute!

The Embroidery Store provides six different colored pillows (the Oatmeal would be best for this gift) that are as easy to embroider as the Embroidery Buddies!

You can find the full tutorial here.

Whatever you choose to give or create this Valentine’s Day, keep this in mind: the most important part of a gift is the love inside. That’s what Valentine’s Day is all about; showing your love for one another in the cheesiest way possible. Get stitchin’!
