Time seems to fly! With so many things to do, keeping track of the time may be proved to be difficult. But still, Valentine’s Day is a special day that no couple should miss. If you are celebrating Valentine’s Day with your partner, here are some ideas for DIY Valentine gifts for men that you can try making.
The best part of DIY gifts is, of course, the personal touch the gift has to offer that can’t be replicated by other store-bought items. It goes without saying, that DIY gifts often require more time and energy in the making process – but that’s exactly what makes it special and like no other. To celebrate your love, what’s a better way than giving your man a personally made gift that shows your sincerity?
If you are not an especially crafty person, working on a DIY gift can be quite pressuring. Don’t worry. Using a paper with a heart cut-out and some flour, you can create a romantic surprise for your loved one. After cutting out a heart shape on a piece of paper, sprinkle some flour to create some hearts on the pathway. What’ll he see at the end? You decide 😉
Love doesn’t necessarily need a reason – but we all know a little bit of reassurance and expression of love goes a long way. Decorate an old jar with whatever you want, then fill it with rolled papers – with reasons why you love him written inside. The reasons don’t have to be cliché, like you’re cute or you’re a kind person. Be creative, goofy, and make it personal! If your partner has a cute little quirk, make sure to include it. You can even include what’s considered as ‘negative’ traits – just for fun.
This idea would be perfect if you know how to bake. But again, if you don’t, there’s no harm in trying it out for the first time. You can easily find easy cupcake recipes online, with preparation time less than 30 minutes. If you want to play it safe, just buy a cupcake mix from the store, and bake it at home. It’s still considered homemade, after all. It’s the effort that counts. To add to the Valentine spirits, use a heart-shaped cookie cutter or tins. You can also add some icing and wrap it in a heart-themed wrapper.
Personalized photo frame
The longer you are together, the more memories you have accumulated. Create a simple, but one of a kind photo frame with your photo attached inside. You can use a cardboard with a heart cut-out, then decorated with felt hearts, glitter, or just any kind of decoration. You can even include some love quotes, or a description of the picture attached along with why you treasure that moment the most.
Cute lunch wrapper
Valentine gifts don’t have to be enjoyed only at that one moment. You can create these personalized, printed bread wrappers to make sure your man feels the love every day – for at least a week or so. You can design and include your own message on the wrappers, and put a smile on his face. Remember, a famous saying goes like this, ‘the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’. So the lunch is a good idea, but the wrapper would be the cherry on top. With a laser engraver, you can even turn this into a home-run business and make a good buck around Valentine’s Day.
Make sure your Valentine’s day is an eventful day, throughout the day. Prepare small, memorable gifts and include a time stamp on the envelope. We know it’s hard to be patient at times, but make it your goal to emphasize how important it is to open the gift at that specific time. Even if you’re apart during the day, send a short reminder to open his gift and you’ll magically brighten up his day – once at a time. The gifts don’t have to be expensive or big, a small picture of you both, his favorite candies, or a gift card would do the trick.
Good luck in making them!
Keep being AllDayChic!
