No one actually wants a stuffed puppy holding an “I Love You” pillow heart for Valentine’s Day, so why not create a sweet DIY gift bae really will love? These unique pressies are Pinterest-approved and super cute. Guaranteed V-Day victory!
1. Sweets for your sweet
This yummy gift is super cheap and easy to make, but still totally thoughtful. Buy your S.O. their favorite candy and decorate each bag with a funny pun. You can personalize the box with pics of the two of you and lots of glitter.
2. Cutesy candy jar
This DIY is perfect for the holiday of hearts, but you don’t have to deck your candy jar in Xs and Os. If that’s not bae’s ~thing~, paint your candy machine in their favorite colors.
3. S’mores for your BFFs
Sending love to a whole crew? Grab a bag of heart-shaped mega mallows, some graham crackers, and mini chocolate bars to make cute s’mores kits. Include a ~love~ note inside with the date and time if your Galentine’s Day bonfire/marshmallow roast.
4. Secret mission
Plan a V-Day scavenger hunt with clever clues and a fun prize or activity at the end.
5. Lottery bouquet
Stumped on what to get your brand-new bae? Can’t go wrong with a handmade lotto ticket bouquet. Everyone loves money!
6. 14 days of treats
Starting on February 1, give your S.O. a tasty treat or cheap little present every day. It’s a sweet way to draw out the Love Day fun.
7. 52 things I love about you
YOUR HAIR, YOUR EYES, YOUR OLD LEVI’S, WHEN WE KISS I’M HYPNOTIZED! Miley had the right idea – telling bae what you love about them is always a win. Write one trait you adore on each card, then bind them with rings into a little book.
8. Themed box
Pick your ride-or-die’s favorite color, movie, country, or whatever and fill a box full of on-theme trinkets.
9. Love lyrics
Fill a mason jar with all the song lines that remind you of your S.O. They’ll love the romantic gesture, even if you don’t agree on music.
Movie tickets, concert stubs, cute notes, and photos are the perfect love tokens to fill a book with. Even if you’re not the craftiest fish in the sea, bae will appreciate that you kept so many mementos.
