Valentine’s Day seems to have shown up out of nowhere, and if you’re still looking for the perfect gift for your friends you should definitely consider the following DIY craft. A friend from my lab, Heather, crafted these lovely mulberry scented heart warmers as gifts for everyone in our lab for Christmas. The great idea, along with her amazing attention to detail (each heart warmer incorporates our university’s tricolour scheme: blue, yellow, and red) immediately made me think of her as Martha Stewart. The amount of time that goes into crafting this gift will leave your valentines in no doubt as to how much you value them. They will also be constant reminders of your friendship as your valentines continuously heat them and use them to keep warm during the winter. I have used mine to, alternately, scent the drawers of my bureau or make my pillow smell nice before I go to bed.
