{DIY Gift Set: Monogrammed wine glasses paired with red wine}

Valentines Day is coming up and it is my favorite holiday. Don’t ask me why- it could be because when I was little my mom and dad always seemed to include my sister and me on their Valentines Day “date night.” So, from a young age it was less of the romantic holiday and more of a holiday to express how much we love the family and friends in our lives.

Last week I was in a super crafty mood and made the cutest DIY Valentines Day basket:  monogrammed stemless wine glasses paired with a bottle of red wine.  Etching the wine glasses puts a personal touch on the gift set and was so easy that anyone can do it, pinky promise.

What you’ll need: 2 stemless glass wine glasses (my local dollar store had them- crazy),Glass Etch Cream, paintbrush, stencil, and rubbing alcohol.  Since I couldn’t find any monogrammed stencils I liked in particular, I printed a monogrammed letter and taped it to the inside of the glass and used it as a guide. So if you can’t find what you’d like in stencil form…do what I did, simple as that!

collageNext, following the directions on the class etching cream, I rubbed glass surface with rubbing alcohol, then carefully painted the monogram using the paper guide behind it, let the cream dry for 15 minutes, then washed it off.

I am positive a valentine will love this thoughtful gift set- I mean who wouldn’t.  Don’t forget to comment and subscribe below. Happy Tuesday!

Boston Bound!

I am SO excited! For Valentine’s day  my amazing bf is taking me on a  trip to BOSTON. I have never been and have wanted to go for so long. All I can say is that I am thrilled as ever.  Together we have compiled a list of suggestions from family and friends:

  • Walk to freedom trail (with the hopes its not buried in snow)
  • Boston Tea Party Museum (silly and interactive)
  • JFK Museum
  • Fenway Park tour (even though we are Yankee fans!)
  • Cheers Bar
  • Quincy Market

After our trip I’ll be posting all the gems we found. If you have any suggestions comment them our way! We would love to hear your fave spots so we can check them out.
