Pinterest Picks: Valentine's Day Edition

A selection of gift wrapping ideas, inspiration and products, as discovered on Pinterest.

1. Printable Army-Man Valentine. By Liz on Love and Marriage and a Baby Carriage. It's nice to see a Valentine that isn't all pink, red and hearts.

2. DIY Arrow Treat Bags. By Erin Lepperd on Style Me Pretty. A nice idea for homebaked treats.

3. DIY Stitched Gift Box. By Camilla Fabbri on Family Chic. I love the heart, but also love the idea of stitching any pattern onto a box top. Imagine XOX for Valentine's Day, or colourful circles for another occasion. And if you're super skilled at embroidery, you could make an amazing design.

4. Printable Valentine's Day gift tags. By Bre on Bre Purposed. Of course, nothing says you can't use these tags for non-Valentine gifts.

5. Printable Valentine's Day wrapping paper. From For the Makers on The Source. Four cute patterns: tiny heart gift wrap, painted brick gift wrap, matchstick gift wrap (my fave) and sugarpie gift wrap.

Pinterest Picks: Free Printables, Subtle Valentines + More

A selection of gift wrapping ideas, inspiration and products, as discovered on Pinterest.  

1. Soap packaging. From Humunuku Shoppe (item no longer available). I love the idea of covering one entire side of a gift with a label.

2. Graphic-patterned chocolate- and salmon-coloured wrapping paper set. From Froh & Frau. This colour and pattern combo are super on trend these days.

3. Kraft, black and gold paper goods. From The Stationery Boutique. With Valentine motifs like hearts and arrows, you don't need pink or red.

4. DIY doughnut Valentines with free downloadable printable gift tags. By Gabrielle Blair on Design Mom. Instead of chocolate, why not give doughnuts for Valentine's Day this year?

5. Valentine envelopes/treat bags (free downloadable printable). By Kristen on Ella Claire. Vintage romantic charm.

This Week on Pinterest, March 1, 2013Nicely packaged homemade boiled apple cider syrup. By Erin Boyle on Reading My Tea Leaves. Everything about this blog post is scrumptious — the packaging, the recipe and the photography. (Image courtesy of Reading My Tea Leaves)

+ Chalkboard gift tags. By Lia Griffith on Ellinée. Click through to Ellinée for the free download of these gift tags.

+ Gifts wrapped with wax seals and string. By Joanna on Liebesbotschaft.

Coloured hot glue "wax" seal adornment. By Shane Powers on Martha Stewart Living's the Crafts Dept. Similar concept as above, different look. Brown paper, string and a "wax" seal — wine bottles wrapped with old-world appeal.

+ Men's tie gift topper. By Amy Atlas on Sweet Designs. A little piece of ribbon cut and tied just right looks like a miniature men's tie.
