Homemade Valentines Day Gifts

Homemade Valentines Day Gifts 

So with Valentines day only two days away this maybe be a little bit late for some people. But I thought despite being ill recently it was only fair that I finished off my Homemade Valentines Series. These ideas are a few personal things which all range in time and difficultly and money that they take to make. So here are a few of my favourite ideas:

  • Mix CD - cliche, yes, but cute and personal, also yes. My boyfriend made one off these for me last Christmas and it really meant so much . You can put on all of your couple songs and then surprise them with some cute songs that remind you of them. 
  • Cupcakes and treats - as we all know, the way to a man's heart is through his stomach! So why not bake some yummy valentines treats for him and put them in a pretty box or bag? You'll probably get to eat a few of them yourself!
  • Love letter - this is the cheapest and simplest idea, but also probably one of the hardest. Its so hard to write all your feelings down for someone but it is one of the most thoughtful things that you can do. And it's something that they can keep forever. 
  • Photo collage - if you're the kind of couple that likes to take a lot of photos together then why just have then on your phone/laptop? This is a sweet way to have them all on display and could even be turned into a card with a cute message on the back. 
  • Drawing - if you are a talented artists then drawing the two of you together or anything that means something to your relationship is a lovely idea. And even if you are slightly artistically challenged, it's the thought that counts! 
  • Cuff links - this sounds like a really complex idea but it is really so simple. You can order some very cheap cuff link back from Ebay and then stick on whatever you like. My favourite is scrabble pieces with their initials on. 
  • Love checks - this is a little booklet of all the things that you promise to do. For example letting him have the remote for a night, making him breakfast in bed, taking him out to dinner. And the good thing about this one is that they can be whatever you want. 
  • Personalised storage jars - these may sound a bit boring but for a guy who spends a lot of time working at a desk this is a sweet and useful idea that will make him think of you every time he sees them. You can use a jar or a clean tin can and then decorate it with photos or pictures of whatever you like. 
  • Love box - why not just fill a box with a few little bits and bobs that mean something to you both. Such as concert ticket, the receipt for that nice restaurant you went to etc. 
  • 52 reasons I love you - for something really personal use a deck of old cards and on each one write something that you love about that person. Takes a bit of time and thinking but it will really mean a lot and make them feel amazing. A little cheesy, but it's Valentines Day so it's allowed! 
I hope this has given you a few ideas rather than just buying a present for the person you love. For me Valentines day is just about telling someone how you really feel and that doesn't have to mean spending a load of money. So whatever you are doing this Valentines day, I hope that you have a lovely one.
Lots of love
Your Valentine xx
