DIY Valentine's Day Gifts for Him

Valentine's day is more about love than gifts, but who doesn't love a homemade present? Taking the time to make something from hand is so sweet and personable.

These crafts are sure to mean more than something store-bought since there's nothing like the sincere gift of time and effort.

Check out these easy DIY Valentine's day gift ideas for him!

Open When Envelopes

This gift idea is my personal favorite.

Create as many special envelopes as you want and watch his face light up as he opens one for when he needs to be cheered up.

What you put in these little pockets of delight is up to you—maybe a silly picture of you or some poetry.

These are a real hit depending on how creative you want to get with the project.

Make a Love Note Jar

Create a gorgeous love jar with little surprise notes that can either be wishing your partner a lovely day, kisses or anything that will brighten up their day!

365 Note Jar, this idea is great for someone special in your life especially a boyfriend, girlfriend, or best-friend. It may be a little time consuming but it’s worth it. This idea takes time, heart and love, but it’s still worth it.

Valentines Gift Basket

You know the way most guys hate shopping? Think how great it would feel for him to have you make up a bundle of his favorite things—a travel version of his favorite board game, a box of his most treasured sweets, or maybe even tickets to see a game. The sky is the limit for this one.

It really shows how much you listen and care when you take the time to make this extra special gift for him.

Thanks hope centre, yes men do need encouragement I agree , I have forced my hubby to like Valentines and believe it or not he actually enjoys making cards for me now or at least he plays along ;)

Hope Centre on February 07, 2015:

Very very interesting hub. Everything was new for me. I'll show it to my daughter, She will love it (She is 10 years old and loves art&craft). Because I don't think men are really that much romantic. Hubbies usually feel suffocated by that much involvement. Its my idea only, no one has to has to agree with it anyway.
