DYI Valentine’s Gifts That They Will Love

Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be stressful by spending a lot of money or waiting at a restaurant for hours, it should be about showing your special valentine how they melt your heart and hopefully these gifts will melt theirs also:

Head to your favorite dollar store if you do not already have these items in stock:

Handmade cards: Instead of buying a card, make one yourself. You can use materials like construction paper, markers, glitter, and stickers to create a unique and personalized card.

Scrapbook: Gather memories of your favorite times as a couple – ticket stubs, holiday photos, sketches of places you’ve visited – and make a scrapbook. It’s a gorgeous keepsake your partner can keep adding to.

Homemade chocolates: Make your own chocolates using melted chocolate and your favorite fillings such as nuts, fruit, or caramel.

Coupon book: Create a coupon book filled with promises of things you’ll do for your loved one, such as cooking their favorite meal or giving them a massage.

Decorative mason jar: Fill a mason jar with candies, flowers, or other small gifts and decorate the outside with paint, ribbon, or other embellishments.

Photo Collage: Make a collage of pictures from your time together and frame it or create a digital version that you can share.

DIY jewelry: If you’re handy with a needle and thread, consider making a piece of jewelry such as a bracelet or necklace.

Cook a special meal: Cook a romantic dinner for two at home, using your loved one’s favorite ingredients.

52 Things I Love about you:  Use a regular deck of cards and use construction paper and sharpies to write unique reasons you love them one each individual card.

Date Night Ideas Jar: You just fill a mason jar with Popsicle sticks and write a different date idea on each one (you can also color code by date type, like outdoor dates, indoor dates, free dates, etc.)


Remember, the most important thing about Valentine’s Day is the thought and effort you put into it, not the cost of the gift. So have fun and let your creativity run wild!
