So many of us girls are extremely fond of receiving Valentine’s Day gifts and in most cases because of our thoughtful nature we already have in mind something nice for him.
Regardless of how much such a gift should cost, we always see the occasion as the perfect one to show our love, but what kind of gift to give him if we don’t exactly feel like little hearts, hot lingerie and chocolate dipped strawberries we gave him last year? Most married couples, or the couples enduring enough to see the years passing together tend to ignore the Valentine’s day gift giving process.
For you, ladies out there, who want to do something original for your significant other here are the best 10 DIY Valentine Gift ideas.
Roll -up tool organizer
All guys have at least a set of tools spread all over the garage or basement. Be a smart girl and with the help of some cloth ( used denim would do perfectly) and some thread you can easily get the job done.
Message on the coffee mug
Corny, yes…but maybe the poor guy needs to see written something else than the grocery list. So be brave and using a permanent marker write something meaningful on an all-white plain coffee mug you can get anywhere. Your handwriting and a message like “ …you’re still the one” will surely brighten up his day.
Whip something up
Nobody says you have to be Ron Ben Israel to make a cake. If you are not fond of baking you can whip up a dessert from mascarpone, ladyfinger biscuits and chocolate streusel. Google easy to make Valentine’s day dessert recipes and you will see there is nothing to it.
Personalized BBQ apron
When thinking of DIY Valentine gifts for your man consider his passions. If he is into barbeque and grilling make him an apron with a cute message. You can get the flame resistant apron from any department store. Using a flame resistant permanent marker write something like “Sizzling HOT”. He will have fun reading the message anytime he puts it on.
If you are a crafty lady able to do some magic with a needle and a piece of thread consider monograming. You can get him a new tie and do your magic with an assorted thread. You can download a free pattern online.
Your man may be into driving but when he needs something so trivial like a can opener, something to write with or a flashlight while on the road, he will turn the whole car upside down and never find them. This is why getting him a smart box to put all the above into is always a good idea. You can use an enforced shoe box decorated as you see fit.
Now…this is a classic but so few of us actually consider it. Sacrifice a wooden hanger you can always recover from him and put some curved nails you can get in the department store in the base segment. He can hang his belts and avoid a bit of fuss while looking for them.
When looking for ideas to create the perfect DIY Valentine’s Day gift for him keep in mind that the gesture is always crowned by a kiss and a few nice words. Remember that romance is still there after the years and small things can make all the difference even for the guys .
