Editor's note: The following is a guest post written by Darcy Miller, celebrations expert and editorial director of Martha Stewart [1] Weddings. With Valentine's Day upon us, Darcy shares some original — and sweet! — crafts she and her three girls put together for the holiday.

With three little girls — Pipa, Ella, and Daisy — who adore all things hearts and sweets, Valentine's Day is always a huge holiday in my house. In fact, I start collecting pink and red materials in early January to prepare. It's the perfect time to surprise loved ones with custom handmade gifts that show how much you care. I always like to involve the girls, and this was a great way to spend time together. Here are some of the sweet DIY [2] gifts we'll be sending with love to family and friends this year.

A Collection of Valentine's Treats

Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays, and over the years I have created so many personalized valentines for my family and friends.

Small Hearts For Small Hands

For this year’s valentine, we embellished little red heart tins from Sockerbit [4] with my drawing of the girls and filled them with assorted red candy.

A Big Heart For Loved Ones

For a valentine that will also become a keepsake, we filled this heart-shaped red tin from New York Cake [6] with festive cupcake liners and assorted red candy from Dylan’s Candy Bar [7]. We topped the tin with a memorable photo of the girls for a special touch.

Custom Chocolate Bars

These chocolate bars from Mary & Matt [9] make the perfect edible valentine. Customize with a homemade label and adorn with a ribbon (this label was a collaboration between myself and stationer Cheree Berry). I have also used custom candy bars as invitations.
