These DIY gifts are sweet, thoughtful and made with love. Best of all, since you’re making them yourself, you can personalise them and nab extra brownie points for making Valentine’s Day about the two of you and putting in the effort to make them something special.

For a nudge in the right direction, consider making a home-cooked meal with a Valentine’s Day touch, patch together scrapbooks or photo string ornaments, make love coupons with gifts specific to your relationship, or gift something the two of you can build or make together. The sky’s the limit!

DIY Valentine’s Day gifts you can make with things in your home

Are DIY kits not what you need? Maybe they’re beyond your budget. That’s OK! You can keep your spends ultra-low without resorting to kissing her on the cheek and handing her a flower you picked from your backyard… or your neighbour’s backyard.

Put it in a jar

Put it in a jar

There’s so much you can do with empty jars in the house. Roll up little notes and put them in, fill it with a mixture of lollies, throw in little trinkets or charms of things you know they love, or build a kit inside it. Perhaps a Coke can and mini bottle of JD? Or maybe a pancake mix in a jar?

Don’t forget to decorate the jar. This could be as easy as tying a note card to a string and winding it around the lip of the jar a couple of times.

Bonbons

Make a bon bon

Bon bons serve a greater purpose than to house cheesy jokes and party hats during Christmas, you can use them all year round to house gifts and treats.

Make your own out of cardboard (click the link for a template) and tuck in lollies or cosmetics as a surprise.

Branch out

Roses are expensive. That’s a fact. They’re especially pricey on the day of love, Valentine’s Day. But you don’t have to shell out the cash to give her flowers. You can make your own in a variety of ways. Try cutting out love hearts from pink paper and dangling them off bendy wires in a modern twist on the bouquet. You can also make your own roses out of paper or felt. The Internet is filled with super-easy tutorials.

Make it and bake it

One thing that never goes out of style is the handmade treat. You can bake any number of goods from breakfast to dinner, cupcakes to cookies.

Decide if your partner likes savoury or sweet and put that into play. Be creative by adding a love heart twist, adding pink food dye into one of the elements or simply decorating it in the style of Valentine’s Day.

MixedTApe

Make a mixtape

Or a mixed playlist. It really doesn’t matter, although old skool fanatics will definitely appreciate the mixed tape.

You don’t have to limit yourself to loved up ditties when you do this. Direct your mix more towards what you love that you’d like to share with your Valentine or songs remind you of your loved one.

Cap it off with a special note and you’re good to go.
