Gifts for her: 6 DIY Tasty TreatsBy: Lindsay McCane - February 8, 2014
It is that time of year again. The time to show that special person just how much they mean to you.
Love is in the air, and you want to give this person something they truly love.
While it is perfectly acceptable to take the usual approach and buy your lady chocolates and flowers, you could also take a more unique approach and try one of these DIY ideas.
A touch of creativity, and her knowing you took the time to make it yourself, may just be the way into your woman’s heart. Whether she likes sweets, or pizza, below is something she is sure to enjoy.
1. Heart Shaped Pizza

What woman doesn’t like cake? To get started, purchase a red velvet cake mix (local grocery store should carry them). Since the cake is already red, all you have to do is add some white frosting and heart-shaped sprinkles.
