Valentine's Day Gift Ideas: Make A DIY Chalkboard Mug As A Last-Minute Present

Our morning routines usually go something like this: Alarm goes off, snooze button is hit, alarm goes off again, and we're out the door within minutes. Long story short, we're always in a rush, which makes it hard for us to take a moment to let our sweeties know just how much we care. We've got a craft that can help resolve this problem. Today's Valentine's Day idea from Wit & Whistle is an adorable chalkboard mug--a useful tool that will allow us to communicate a sweet message in honor of the holiday without uttering a word.

You can scribe love notes the night before or early in the morning on their way out. And our favorite thing about this craft? The range of sweet nothings you can write are endless, so you can reuse the mug everyday of the year. And if you're at a loss for words, you can always show them how you feel with different colored chalk. To learn more about this craft and for a full tutorial, head over to Wit & Whistle's website.
