Star Wars For Lovers: A Creative Valentine’s Gift Idea

So you’re married to the biggest Star Wars geek out there. What do you get him (or her) for Valentine’s Day? You’ve probably already done all the regular cutesy paper valentines with Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia. How about a custom-designed mug that you make yourself?

Design-your-own pottery places are growing more popular and the variety of items you can design are really amazing–think plaques, bowls, lamps and well, probably toilets! Making something is simple. All you have to do is come with an idea, and they will provide the paint and tools. If you happen to design your own line of digital stamp images, you have an advantage, of course, but anyone could try this idea at their local pottery place.

What I love about this mug is that Melyssa, the creator, has a line of digital stamps that she draws and he fits right in. So not only is this a tribute to her hubby’s love of all things Star Wars, it incorporates her personal style. I, on the other hand, would have to trace the image onto the mug and it STILL wouldn’t come out half as nice. This mug was created by Melyssa at Clay Cafe in Truro, Nova Scotia.
