Cute Gnome Valentine’s Day Gift Idea | Best Friend Gift
You can fill these fuzzy slipper gnomes with whatever goodies you want to, but I stuck with personal care items we enjoy, flower seeds, and, of course, chocolate!
I’ve decided to include some cute printables with this— punny gnome Valentines and large printable tags to include with your Valentine’s Day gnome gift! You’ll find them at the bottom of this post.
For This Cute Gnome Slippers Valentine’s Day Gift, You’ll Need:
- 1 pair fuzzy slippers
- Gift fillers (check for a list of ideas below)
- 1 pair Valentine’s Day socks (crew socks and low-cut socks can both work)
- 2 small, individually-wrapped bath bombs (or EOS lip balm or other spherical items)
- Printed gift tag (on regular paper or cardstock)
- Construction paper/scrapbook paper (optional)
- Hole punch
- Glue (glue stick, glue dots, etc)
- Hook and Loop Dots or no-sew fabric adhesive or thread and a needle
- Flower seeds (we got some Lupine and labeled them “Gnome hats” and some Cypress Vine flowers)
- Lip balm/gloss (We found Mongo Kiss ones the kids like)
- Gnome bath bombs
- Best friend jewelry
- Essential oils
- Mini Nutella
- Valentine’s Day brooch
- Gift card
- Face mask or foot mask
- Small candles
- Mini notebook
- Thinking Putty
- Nail polish
- Lip scrub
Give your furry slippers a quick brush so they look a bit more well-groomed.
Prepare your gift tag. Choose one of the gift tags, print it, and cut it out. If you print on cardstock, you probably won’t need another color backing it, but I printed on regular printer paper and then made scrapbook paper backing for it. Punch a hole and thread some string through.
Fill the slippers with goodies!
Add goodies to your slippers. Make sure the items are small and few, so they fit properly. Also make sure you’ve removed any paper filling that was inserted into the slippers.
If adding chocolate or anything that could melt or spray into the slippers if not stored properly, you may want to slip them into a plastic baggie first.
With the heal part facing backwards, slip a sock over the top of the slipper to cover the hole for the foot. You can use ankle socks or regular-length socks. I do not recommend using very long socks, but you could always try if you wish.
Cut a heart shape from some felt. Add a Hook and Loops Dot backing (the one with the hooks) and stick to the slippers. This may not stick very well, so you may want to attach it more permanently with some no-sew adhesive or thread. I added one to each slipper, both different colors.
Place an individually-sealed bath bomb (or spherical lip balm container or other medium spherical item) into the opening of the slipper where it meets the sock.
Tie the Gnome Valentines Label around the pair of slippers, and you’re ready to gift them!
