Make the Perfect VALENTINE'S DAY Mugs!

Valentine's Day is this weekend! 


My hubby and I don't usually do much for Valentines Day, but I have decided to surprise him with these!!
 (Don't worry he hardly ever reads my blog! -- of course this may be the first time, but I thought I would risk it! haha Hubby- Just pretend you are surprised love!)

My love and I have always said to each other, forever and always my baby you'll be :) 
(Tell me what book its from in the comments!

And I thought it would be special to make matching mugs with our anniversary date and special saying on them! 

They are so easy and inexpensive to make! 

Here is How To Make The Perfect Valentine's Day Mugs! 

1. Go to the dollar store and pick up 2 ceramic coffee mugs.
(Yep! Just $2 right there!)

3. Grab some colored Sharpies. Write or Draw whatever is meaningful to your significant other and you, and let dry for a full day. (If you mess up, don't sweat! Wipe off with a Magic Eraser, wipe dry and try again!)

4. Place the mugs in the oven and turn the heat to 350 degrees. Let it bake for 30 minutes, then turn off the heat and let cool in the oven. 

5. Fill with your Loves favorite chocolate or candy and there you go! (My hubby loves the Raspberry candies but unfortunately they don't sell them in our town :( So I settled on Marshmallow Chocolate) 

Voila! The Perfect Matching Valentine's Day Mugs, 
because it reminds you both of your special moments together.

Happy Valentine's Day! 

Your Turn: What Are You Doing For Valentine's Day This Year? 


  1. Such a nice mug. Yum... I'm thinking about chocolate now:)

  2. I just bought oil markers to be able to make these for family and friends! I wish I had as steady of a hand though for writing… oh well, guess it comes from the heart so who cares if it looks like a child did it! HAHA!

  3. Great idea and very cute! I doubt we are doing much this year, I'm teaching an art class and my husband is working on call all weekend, so we will go out another night :)

  4. I learned this trick a couple months ago but have yet to put it to use. Love it! I am guessing this is a hand-wash item? I, too, love raspberry candies; the hard candy that is shaped like an actual berry. Is that what your husband likes? Man, those things are magical but I haven't had one in years!

  5. I didn't know you could do that with mugs and sharpies...great advice! Looks like a yummy mug and great personal gift!

  6. These are so sweet! I just got that book for my daughter and she loves it. I love personalized mugs! What a cute and practical gift idea! And my husband never reads my blog either :)

  7. I love this cheap (but it doesn't look cheap) way to make a gift!

  8. I tried making these last year and they were totally unsuccessful, but I definitely didn't leave them to dry for a day - thanks for the tip!


Thank you for visiting Faith In Every Day, I would love to hear from you!
