If you’re looking for handmade Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas, check out our list of 7 unique ideas. You’ll find simple gifts for her or him, friends, co-workers and teachers.
As the Valentine’s Day season approaches, why not consider giving a handmade gift this year? Handmade gifts are more personal, and can really show your friend or loved one how much you care.
If you are unsure about where to begin with picking a handmade gift, take a look below at 7 handmade Valentine’s Day gift ideas you can try!
1. Make a Bucket Full of Kisses
Take a small jar or metal bucket from the dollar store and decorate it to your liking. Fill it with foam hearts that you have placed a kiss on. When your child needs a kiss from you and you are not around, they can take one of the hearts and hold it. Does it get any sweeter than that?
2. Craft a No Sew Heating Pack
Take a Valentine’s Day themed sock (dollar stores carry these) and fill it with rice. Tie the open end closed with some ribbon. Present it to your Valentine to help soothe sore muscles. To use, just heat it in the microwave for 30 seconds.
3. Make a DIY Sugar Scrub
Make your own Valentine’s Day Sugar Scrub so your other half can enjoy smooth skin. Dress the jar up with a label and some ribbon and you are ready to gift! Or you can try sugar scrub bars for a twist on the traditional sugar scrub.
4. Try a Photo Collage
Gather your favorite photos and create a photo collage in a nice frame. Head to www.picmonkey.com where you can edit your photos, add text, and other features for free!
5. Make a Scented Sachet
Take some dried herbs such as rosemary and lavender. Place them in a small drawstring bag (sold at most craft stores) or in a child sized sock. Tie closed with pretty ribbon and you have a fun and frugal sachet, perfect for keeping closets and drawers smelling great.
You can use the same method as in my Sandalwood & Lavender Bath Sachets recipe.
6. Make a Coupon Book
Find some pretty scrapbook paper and cut it into even rectangles. Staple together into a book and then write a task you will do on each sheet. Examples might be chores around the house, a massage, or even silly things like giving up the remote for the day.
7. Craft a Decorative Vase or Jar
Stain your own glass when you mix Elmer’s glue and a few drops of food coloring. Paint the mixture onto glass (thrift store vases work great) for a cool stained glass effect.
You can use the same techniques as we did when we made solar night lights.
Don’t spend big bucks buying Valentine’s Day gifts this year. Instead, try making a handmade gift. It is sure to mean more and make a huge impact!
