I Built It
With the GoT hype levelling up (we can hardly wait until April!), how about gifting your partner a model DIY kit of medieval architecture? Each model kit forms part of a castle, so you have everything from The Barbican, which is the fortified gatehouse of a castle to The Eyrie, the guard tower.The kits are as detailed as they can get, so you can both enjoy figuring out how to build the drawbridge, catapults, doors and portcullis!
Pony Craft Store
One of the best known knitting and sewing accessory brands in the country, Pony is a DIY enthusiast’s dream. Check out their store for some fun DIY kits that you can use to make pom pom spiders, crochet cupcakes and felt bookmarks. You can also find beads and ribbons if you want to make your own jewellery for your favourite person.
While this is not exactly handmade, it’s definitely personal and memorable (and something to do with hands!). Entwined together, this handhold cast will perfectly capture your moment of love in a permanent medium. The Copy Paste team will come home with the entire kit of specialised casting material and finish the copy in about 15-45 minutes. You will only receive your finished product in a week, so make sure to book in advance!
