10 Last Minute Valentine Ideas for Geeklings

The weekend before Valentine’s Day is here; which means in this house get those class’ Valentines done so we aren’t scrabbling Monday night. My son decided this year he was going to hand make all of his Valentines with personalized drawings on each one. Luckily he told me last weekend because we have been working on them all week and still have a third of the class to go. We may be done my Monday.

My daughter is a bit easier. She saw a set of Valentines on Etsy, that are perfect coming from her, that we could print from home. My children’s different approach to creating Valentines versus our usual buying them at the store got me thinking about other ETSY and DIY Valentine card options. Below are 10 last minute ETSY and DIY Valentine ideas to show off a geekling’s passion or favorite fandom.
