Valentine’s Day is a special day wherein all lovers get an opportunity to express their deep feelings and show how much they value their partners. But what can you do to your partner to make them feel more special? This is the question most women grapple as this day approaches. While many often go for
obvious gifts such as roses and chocolates, this is a special day that deserves something innovative, creative and different. Something that your guy will never expect and will always stick in his memory for years. This is where DIY Valentine’s Day gifts for boyfriend come in hand. Here are some ideas.
A gift basket
Gift baskets can prove to be the ideal homemade valentine day gift for your guy as long as you are able to gather the appropriate elements. Make some love cards with your own wording. Include his favorite perfume and the most treasured photos of your special moments. Include some CDs or DVDs of his favorite music or romantic movies. Arranging this gift basket personally will definitely have a better result than purchasing the readymade products available in the malls.
This is the best idea for guys who are more intellectual, and who love reading. Prepare a personalized journal of you as a couple. Include messages, photos, personal letters, songs, memorabilia, nicknames and chocolate wrappers that you have shared. If this idea does not seem perfect for your boyfriend, then you can limit the words but use more pictures. Decorate the journal with many photos of you and him, and describe them in a special way. This would be the most ideal gift because it will be something he can go through even after many years down the line.
These can be a completely homemade gift idea that you both can enjoy. Although it is a classic idea, it is easy to customize and never goes out of style. Prepare varieties of love coupons and apply different ideas for each, like a basket packed with red roses. Use this idea creatively to come up with things you both enjoy doing. Laminate the coupons to allow him keep them as mementos after redeeming them.
If your man is a tea drinker, purchase his favorite tea bags and cover the bag tags with fabric or paper hearts. Put many varieties of tagged tea bags into a nice heart-shaped basket. You can also make beautiful labels for other drinks, such as his favorite beer or wine. Another great idea is to put candy hearts in ice and then use them to liven up your cocktail.
Ladies who know how to knit, crochet or sew can make their guys scarfs from washable yarns. But when making one, avoid fuzzy yarns, such as baby knits, as they aren’t as durable and tend to shed over time. Try using his favorite colors or including the name of his favorite organizations or sports teams.
The aforementioned ideas will certainly help you figure out what you would want to give for your man on the Valentines Day to convey how much you love him. Even the simplest gift idea would make this day special as long as it comes from the heart.
