A Valentine’s Day DIY For The Guys.

Alright friends, who has trouble thinking of cute Valentine’s Day gifts for the men in your life? Man-presents are tough! When a friend of mine introduced to me the makers of JL The Brand and their stylish(and American-made!) dress socks a little light-bulb went off in my head for a cute Valentine’s Day gift idea for my husband. (And PS: I already gave it to him, so I’m not ruining any surprises here… the life of a blogger-husband, you get your  DIY presents a week early because it was part of a blog post!). I found a small square box and rolled up the patterned socks — love those little crowns! — and topped the box with a hand-lettered quip that says “I love you from your head to your TOES!“. Aren’t Valentine’s Day puns the best?

    Just stopped by the online store, and they have chili pepper socks! You could put on the note, “You spice up my life!” Thanks for sharing this brand with your readers.

    This is a great idea! Plus, I love the simple packaging with a handwritten note – easy to open and won’t embarrass my man 😉
