DIY Valentine's Day Gift

I had to make my husband promise he wouldn't read my blog today because I'm sharing his Valentine's Day gift! This is a very simple DIY I put together yesterday and I'm so pleased with how it turned out. I thought it was worth sharing in case you also have a Game of Thrones-obsessed husband/boyfriend and need some last-minute inspiration! This could also work for a birthday or a just-because gift. If he loves the books/show as much as my husband does, it should be a hit no matter what.

(In case you haven't seen Game of Thrones, you can Google these words and get the back story on them.)

Here's how I did it. I typed up the words and found a font I really liked, sized it and printed it in light grey type on white cardstock. Using my gold leaf pen I carefully traced over the words. Then I framed the cardstock and that was it!

I think this would look pretty cute in a bathroom or resting on a nightstand. We'll have to see where my husband wants to put it. I think it's a fun pop culture reference while also acting as a little love note to my husband. Those Dothrakis are pretty poetic, I must say. (And that's the last time you'll see a word like "Dothraki" on my blog! The things we do for the men in our lives!)


  1. So sweet. And I, too, have a husband who could watch Game of Thrones all day every day. I like it as well, but I got bored early on one episode and Wikipediaed the ENTIRE Game of Thrones book series so now I know who dies and what happens and who lives and everything. So I am not allowed to watch with Alex anymore because I accidentally spoils things for him. Well, anyway, this is so sweet!

  2. Haha! That's so funny. My husband has read the books so he knows what's coming but he's still impossibly excited for the new season to come out. It's cute. I thought I wouldn't like the show but I've gotten into it too.
