Current Crushes: 2017 Valentine's Day Gift Guide

Paper Craft Pantry Blog 2017 Valentine's Day Gift Guide Austin Texas

We've been busy in our studio planning for Valentine's Day and we're beginning to feel the love! Any holiday that involves going a little overboard with pink and glitter is a holiday we love! Our shelves are stocked with the loveliest cards and sweet gifts, and our studio calendar is all set with fun Valentine's themed events!

Gift giving can be difficult, but we've got your back! We've rounded up our favorite 10 gifts in this guide of beautifully-crafted + independently-made goods that would make even the pickiest of gift-getters swoon (without breaking the bank). 

Single? No worries! This list is inclusive of all the special people in your life. We don't think there's anything wrong with surprising your best friend or favorite co-worker with a thoughtful Valentine's Day gift to remind them just how much they mean to you! 

Here's what we're currently crushing over:

1. "Cuddles" Candle ($16)

This candle by The Burlap Bag will have anyone and everyone dreaming of snuggling up with a fluffy blanket, still warm from the dryer.  Pair this with a bottle of wine and a movie for the perfect romantic or Netflix night in.

2. Love You Card ($5)

As a part of Curious Print's Modern Love collection, this bold, botanical design is the perfect proclamation of your love! Pair it with a gift certificate to the studio, good toward any of our workshops or retail purchase. 

3. Handmade Leather Business Card Holder ($32)

Know a small business owner who is networking 24/7? Help them tidy up their wallet with this minimalist, glittered card holder by AlloftheAbovely. Each wallet is made from vegetable-tanned leather and will hold 3 credit cards or a 1/4" stack of business cards. This wallet comes in three shades: silver, gold and natural leather.

4. Tickets to our Galentine's Extravaganza ($30)

Start your celebrations a little early by treating your gal pals to a fun evening of crafting, festive sips + treats, and — of course — 90s pop music! Crafts will include a D.I.Y bath scrub, and floral and painted card making stations. Grab your tickets here.

5. Donut + Cupcake Felt Decor ($8)

Show someone just how sweet they are with these adorable felt ornaments by It's So Fluffy. Hang them on the wall, style them alongside cookbooks, or throw one around the rear-view mirror.

6. Monthly Desk Calendar ($16) 

This hand illustrated tear-off agenda by Ginably is the perfect pop of color for any desk.
BONUS: This pad isn't dated, so it can be used year-to-year, for a total of 25 months! 

7. Vintage Rose Gold Scissors ($24)

You have a heart of gold! Show it off by gifting a pair of these vintage-inspired rose gold scissors. Just as much as they are functional, they make for a bold addition to any workspace or kitchen.

8. Floral Watercolor Art Print ($16)

Instead of a bouquet of roses, give your loved one flowers that will last a lifetime! This watercolor print by Leen Jean will fit in any 5x7" frame — perfect for dressing up a bookshelf or hanging in a home office. 

9. I Love You Ya Weirdo Card ($5)

Just because it's Valentine's doesn't mean you have to get sappy and overly sentimental! This card by the Detroit Card Co. is a refreshing alternative that is sure to get a chuckle out of anyone.

10. Little Bird Ceramic Dish ($25+)

This hand-stamped, hand-formed ceramic bird catch-all dish by Lemon Glaze is the perfect size to hold rings, paperclips, loose change, or even dress up the sink as a soap holder. This dish comes in various sizes and colors, so stop by the studio to pick out your favorite!
