Homemade Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

Valentine’s Day is the time of year to celebrate relationships and romance. It’s important to remind your partner of how much you love them with a unique a personalized gift. While chocolate and flowers are great V-Day gifts, homemade Valentine’s Day gifts can go a long way.

Romantic Treats

Sometimes the quickest way to your lover’s heart is through their stomach. Instead of the generic box of chocolates this year, try baking some romantic edibles at home. Decadent heart-shaped cookies or cupcakes placed in a cute red box will make an incredible gift. Try red velvet cupcakes topped with vanilla icing and heart-shaped sprinkles.

Creative Cards

A homemade card can go a long way and can be a lot more personal and romantic than any commercial gift. Print out a picture of you and your honey and include a customized message inside the card. You can also make a card depicting their favorite animal, vacation spot, or lyrics from a song you share.

Memory Scrapbook

Scrapbooks are a fun way to remember all of the enjoyable moments of your relationship. Gather pictures, movie and concert ticket stubs, maps, letter and anything else that you shared in your relationship with your partner. Put them all together in a pretty and romantic scrapbook. Embellish it with romantic quotes, song lyrics and ribbons.

DIY Candle Holders

To make any home more beautiful, create some lovely and romantic candle holders out of lace. You can sew them easily and place them around candles for an intimate and beautiful touch.

Best of the Bunch

Instead of a store bought bouquet, make your own flower arrangement for your Valentine. Add gorgeous long-stemmed flowers and wrap a rubber-band around them. Trim the stems, add a ribbon to hide the rubber-band, and place in a romantic vase.

Dinner for Two

Sometimes the best Valentine’s Day gift comes in the form of a delectable meal. Set the table with your best china, drape a white linen over it, light candles, dim the lights and serve a romantic dinner for two at home. Learn your lover’s favorite dish and serve that, along with mouthwatering sides and sinfully good dessert.

Favorite Tunes

Every couple has as song, by why not an entire playlist? Put together a compellation of romantic songs that you and your partner both enjoy. Decorate the CD and CD case with romantic pictures of hearts and a personalized message. Ask your Valentine to dance as you both listen to it.
