A Happy Valentine’s Day Post
For the past couple of Valentine’s Leslie and I have both devoted our time into creating each other some pretty kick-ass gifts. I knew this was a bit of a challenge, especially since I was working against the Queen of DIY. Don’t believe me, check out some of the things she’s been crafting in our DIY category.
Last year’s gifts:
You could only imagine the reactions I received from fellow co-workers when Leslie hand-delivered this AMAZING gift on my first official day at work =) Oh, and the Bose earbuds was icing on the cake!
I’ve always been interested in skate/snowboard design, so I thought it would be a cool surprise to customize one for Leslie.
Thanks to a couple of friends who were able to make this one happen!
This Year’s Gifts:
Being a wedding photographer you can never own enough ties or bow ties. Luckily for me, I’ll never have to look any further than this bouquet of custom bow ties that Leslie handmade herself!!! FRIGGIN’ love her to death!!!! What a killer gift!!
–Sorry for all of the exclamation marks. I’m a sucker for bow ties =)
Check out the single speed bow tie! How could I possibly not want to rock that at a wedding?!!
And the chinese take-out box was a nice touch.
Yes, I know what you’re thinking…“Really Dane, a mixtape for Valentine’s Day? Do people still make mixtapes?” Apparently not. But I know Leslie has been bringing it up to my attention that I never make her anymore mixtapes. Not only did she get a ton of sweet jams,
but I made her an insert that contained some of the weird topics that tend to cross my mind throughout the day =)
FYI: I would never be forced into an arranged marriage, lol.
What’s the best Valentine’s Day present you’ve received? We would love to hear your story.
