So February’s here again… and you know what that means, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! And although gifts are not really the essence of celebrating love, somehow it has been a tradition to give our special someone a gift. Or perhaps, you are single and want to convey your tender feelings to that person you’ve been crushing on forever.

Thinking what gift to give can be difficult, and while some opt to just buy pre-made gifts, others prefer to put more effort in it by making hand-made crafts. Personally-knitted items such as scarves, bonnets, socks etc… are some of the go-to gift items you can choose from. Especially in winter countries, a knitted gift will not only convey your warm feelings of love for that special person, it can also literally make them warm on those cold winter days and think of you!

Handmade gifts are very sweet and thoughtful!
