Beer bouquet

You need to start off by sticking thick sticks around each beer can with strong tape. You will then need to tape all the sticks together at the end of each stick to hold them into place.

Stick some gift wrapper paper onto each side of the beer can, making sure not to cover the logo of the beer can.

Group the beer cans into three, and make sure that the sticks placed on the cans of each group of three are taped together to put them in place.

Take a piece of hard paper, and place each group of beers one under the other to create a bouquet effect.

Once that is done, you will need to use tape to stick down all the sticks holding the beers together, and wrap the bottom of the black piece of cardboard to create a bouquet.

Use additional wrapping paper and ribbons to decorate the bouquet however you desire, and the beer bouquet will be ready for you to gift to your loved one.

Heart shaped chocolate box

Head to the store to buy a heart shaped box. Then use a glue gun to stick mini chocolate bars all around the sides of the heart shaped box.

Once that is done, use shreds of red paper or wrapping paper to fill the bottom of the box, and then fill the box with all the yummy sweets, chocolates and treats your partner loves.

Chocolate covered strawberries

Chocolate covered strawberries are really delicious, and very romantic to share with your significant other on Valentine’s Day.

To create this box of chocolate covered strawberries, you will need an empty box in the colour of your choice. Fill the bottom of the box with shreds of paper or wrapping paper.

Once that is done, take your strawberries, thoroughly wash them, and then dip them into coloured melted chocolate.

You can use different colours of melted chocolate, as well as sprinkles and other decorations to decorate the strawberries.

Once that is done, place the chocolate covered strawberries on cupcake wrappers all over the box, close the box and tie it with a ribbon, and then gift your partner with the romantic strawberries.
