An advent calendar is a countdown to the actual holiday, but you can give this gift as a “14 Days of Love” gift, where they will get to enjoy the gift for 14 days after the Valentine’s Day Holiday. 

Your Valentine’s Day Advent Calendar would be a really sweet gift for your husband, boyfriend, or fiancé, and can even be perfect for your kids!

The fun part is deciding what to put in each day of your advent calendar.  You can make it a love letter calendar where you write a love note for each day, make it a date idea calendar, where you both get to enjoy an activity together every day you open one, or add little treats in them. 

Mix all of those up and you’ll have yourself a fun and memorable gift for your love!

1. Using your glue gun, start by covering the box with your black construction paper.

*This step will be optional depending on how you want to present this gift. Another idea would be to string them all together and have them hanging.

3. Glue the pink and red construction paper over your toilet paper rolls (you should have 7 pink and 7 red rolls)

Or mix up your colors however you’d like. You could do one color for date activities, and one for Valentine’s Day treats, or something like that too.

Continue by filling and closing all rolls.

Again, you can designate which heart color means what is inside if you would like.

7. On day 14 add an extra special note asking the person to be your Valentine. Maybe also invite them to a cute date. 

Or, if you are gifting them this on Valentine’s Day, give them the best gift or date on day 1 so they can open it that day.
