With less than a week to go until Valentine’s Day, it’s the ideal time to think long and hard about what to buy a loved one. A more thoughtful idea, however, would be to make something personal for that special person in your life. It’s sweet, considerate and often a lot cheaper and more original than buying something from a store. The App Store offers plenty of inspirational apps for those looking to try out some craft based alternative presents, and here are my four favorite apps to use.

Scrapbooking has been all the rage for quite a while now. It can get fiddly, expensive and messy, however, so why not use a virtual alternative? With Skrappy, users can create a personal scrapbook for their loved ones, encompassing images, audio and video clips before sharing the creation. It’s simple yet fun to create such books with plenty of inspiration there, too. Why not create a book all about your first date together? Or a memorable holiday? Or even as part of a romantic proposal?

Not quite sure where to begin but convinced you want to make something craft based for your partner? Craftgawker should be able to provide some great ideas. It’s an app that’s a photo gallery of inspiration. Users can search through the many thousands of ideas, before learning more via the tutorial connected to such photos. A voting system ensures that the ideas are all of a high quality and bound to get the creative juices flowing.

Wilton Cake Ideas & More
Everyone loves cake, right? All the more so when it’s a cake made entirely for you. It’s a nice and sweet (in every sense of the word) touch and can prove distinctly romantic. Wilton Cake Ideas & More helps users bake some delicious and amazing looking creations with hundreds of different designs, catering for every occasion and interest. It doesn’t just include cakes either, with cookies and cupcakes also included. For a loved one with a sweet tooth, this could be the ideal thing to make Valentine’s Day extra special.

For those not as creative as they’d like to be but with a few ideas still under their sleeve, Apple’s own app Cards should make things a little easier. The app allows users to create their own cards and customize them exactly how they want, all through their iOS device, before getting a physical copy sent out to their beloved. It’s simple, straight forward and still offers the personal touch for those that don’t want to get their hands dirty with glue or glitter.

Weddings are commonly considered as one of the most important and memorable events in many people’s lives. They’re also quite often expensive and can cause a lot of stress. While, unlike other wedding focused apps, Make Your Wedding: Inspiration, Planning, and DIY Projects doesn’t explain how to take out the stressful elements, it does provide plenty of ideas for those who want to add a creative and personal touch to their day.

As the name suggests, the app includes 30 DIY projects, for a wide variety of skill levels, each providing a great and inexpensive solution for an important part of a wedding day. Information is provided on how to create attractive wedding favors and ring cushions, as well as table centerpieces and even jewellery for the bridesmaids.

In each case, things are divided up according to style, making it easy to browse when looking for some inspiration. Rustic Elegance, Soft Vintage, Colorful Whimsy, Breezy Beach and Modern Metallic are the themes covering a wide range of tastes. Everything is laid out attractively, too, as would be expected from an Open Air Publishing app. A mixture of videos and photos show visually how to achieve such things, as well as comprehensive lists and tips on all that’s needed to know. A difficulty rating ensures that no one tries to tackle something out of their skill level.

Rounding off the package is a short section on how to prepare for such DIY tasks. It’s not hugely comprehensive, but it does cover enough detail for most users. Being able to look up individual words within the text means that a glossary is already catered for, as well as breakdowns of measurements in both imperial and metric varieties.

Relatively inexpensive for such an interesting tome, Make Your Wedding: Inspiration, Planning, and DIY Projects should provide a plentiful and attractive supply of inspiration for those who are planning a wedding in 2013 or beyond.
