But it is difficult to imagine the holiday without heart shaped gift boxes. They add some peculiarity to the holiday making it different from all other holidays. Heart shaped gift boxes on St. Valentine's Day are something like a New Year tree for Christmas. There are a lot of nice presents which can be given on All Lovers' Day. But they lack that peculiar romantic spirit of the holiday. It is necessary to say that heart shaped gift boxes can be used for different presents. They can be used as jewelry gift boxes and candy gift boxes because jewelry and candies are considered to be among the most popular gifts for this holiday. It is possible to fill the boxes with some nice baby doll T-shirt or mints or anything else.
Heart shaped gift boxes can be made of red cardboard and decorated with stars and hearts printed in gold and red.
Heart shaped boxes are so romantic and cute that they can be used for a number of other occasions such as wedding, birthday, anniversary and others.
The boxes can come in different colors, not only in red. The boxes can be white, silver and sterling stripe. Their patterns can also differ. No matter what color and pattern the boxes are they are able to please anyone. It is possible to buy such boxes anywhere. But it is also necessary to remember that homemade presents are much more appreciated and they tell about a great affection and care towards the receiver. So, if you want to impress someone special you can make the box with your own hands. You will need wood chip, papier-mâché or cardboard, hot glue or tacky glue, floral fabric scrap, small quantity of quilt batting, lace edging, fancy ribbon to frame the heart, paper for making the heart pattern and scissors. You will also need a ribbon to cover the sides of the box. It should be as wide as your box is deep. It is also necessary to have a pencil, a felt for lining and a measuring tape.
It is rather easy to make the box. Maybe it will be not as perfect as a manufactured one. But it will be made with your own hands. A part of your heart will be always in this box. So, if you are dear to the receiver, s/he will keep this box forever and will always remember you while looking at it. Homemade heart boxes are also an opportunity to master one's heart. Sometimes it is very difficult to say about your love to the object of your passion. So, it is a good solution to present the person with such a gift for some occasion.
