Love is in the air friends! People are looking for Valentine’s Day gifts, date night ideas, little gifts for classmates, and all things football 😂. The Super Bowl is this month so party food and games will be on the mind.
This month promote your products by:
- Creating gift guides (gifts for him, gifts for her, gifts for kids, gifts for teachers)
- Sports themed accessories
- Hearts on everything
The great thing about “Hearts on everything” is you can crochet a cute little heart applique and attach it to all the things!
Example: Super Bowl season is a great time to promote nearly anything you make but in team colors. Make 2 things- one for team 1 and one for team 2 then ask your audience who they’re cheering for this year!
Bonus! You can record yourself crocheting those pieces to create Instagram Reels for even more content!
Here is an example of what I did last year’s Super Bowl!
Bonus Content Idea
Create punny V-day cards to go with your makes. For a Claire Cozy, you could make a card that says ” I love you a latte.”
I designed a 24 PACK of punny Valentine’s Day cards you can use to attach to your crochet makes for Valentine’s Day. These are great for gifting V-day gifts and packing gifts for your customers to gift to their loved ones!
Sign up for The Crafty Newsletter here and receive this pack absolutely free.
These cards would be easy to make on Canva. I have a tutorial showing you how to make product tags on Canva, that might help you create some fun Valentine’s Day cards to go with your makes.

If any of these stand out to you as something your ideal customer would be celebrating or participating in, make notes of ways you can promote them!
Be sure to make it specific to your ideal customer!
Groundhog Day: February 2nd- This is actually my husband’s birthday. He’s turning 35 this year!
World Cancer Day: February 4th- If you sell beanies specific to people who have lost their hair, today would be a good day to share your story.
The Grammys: February 5th- There could be a viral moment that you can take a meme and make it applicable to your business!
Here is how I incorporated last year’s Grammys viral moment 😉
Good times, good times.
Send a Card to a Friend: February 7th- You could design a card on Canva, and share the digital copy with your ideal customer!
National Pizza Day: February 9th– If pizza makes sense for your brand and your ideal customer, be sure to celebrate! Share a photo of your pizza-themed items, you enjoying pizza, or even ask your audience what their favorite kind of pizza is! That is sure to get some engagement.
Super Bowl 57: February 12th- Be sure to start making those football-themed items ahead of time so you have time to promote them before the big game!
Valentine’s Day: February 14th- Use the beginning of the month to share your Valentine’s Day products. Share how your products would be perfect to gift to your ideal customer loved ones. Be specific, you want your ideal customer to have an easy YES!
Random Acts of Kindness Day: February 17th- I love this day! One year me and Ava went to our local college and handed out Bonfire beanies. They had cards on them that said “Random Act of Kindness Day- Here is a Blessing Beanie!”
You can share with your audience what you and your family plan on doing, or even offer a sale to your customers to celebrate!
President’s Day: February 20th- If you sell political items or USA-themed items, today is a good day to promote them!
My mind immediately went to Ali of The Turtle Trunks American Flag Blanket!
Mardi Gras: February 21st- Make the day festive. You can use colors like Purple, Gold, and Green in your products.
National Margarita Day: February 22nd
National Banana Bread Day: February 23rd
Crochet Boss Academy Opens: February 27th
