Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, but don’t worry, you still have plenty of time to make your special guy some of these DIY Valentine’s Day gifts! Everyone enjoys getting gifts from the ones they love. If you make them yourself it gives them an even greater sentimental value. Your man will forever cherish one of these DIY Valentine’s Day gifts because they were handcrafted by you with love.
1. Booze Bouquet
When your guy hands you a bouquet of flowers this Valentine’s Day, you can blow his mind by giving him this easy to make booze bouquet! This is one of the easiest to make DIY Valentine’s Day gifts, anyone can make this and it takes very little time. You can substitute candy bars if your guy isn’t much of a drinker.
2. Personalized Mug
This is one of the cheapest DIY Valentine’s Day gift you can make, but it may also be the sweetest. You can buy plain white mugs from most dollar stores and personalize them with any phrase, lyrics or quotes that symbolize your love for your sweetie. Write anything you would like on your mug. My husband and I got married last February and our first dance song was "Lucky" by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat, so I wrote a lyric to the song on a mug for him. He absolutely loved it! It makes him think about our wedding every time he uses the mug.
3. 52 Things I Love about You Deck of Cards
This is such a sweet and meaningful idea! It costs hardly any money to make but it is absolutely priceless! All you need is a deck of cards, a Sharpie, a hole punch, and binding rings. On each of the 52 cards, write one thing you love about your guy. Decorate the top card any way you’d like. You can also write on paper and use Mod Podge to adhere the paper to the cards if you’d prefer.
4. Love Vouchers
Love Vouchers are a classic Valentine’s Day gift. Several stores sell them around this time of year, but you can actually make your own (for FREE)! They are cute and simple and a great way to add some spice to your relationship! After you have printed out the amount of coupons that you would like, simply fill out the coupons with whatever romantic, loving or naughty things you would like to offer to your love.
5. Picture Jar
This is such a darling idea! I would love to have several of these displayed throughout my home! It is a very unique idea and perfect for showing off pictures of the two of you as a couple.
6. Love in a Jar
This DIY Valentine’s Day gift is so adorable and sweet! Your significant other will love this to pieces! It is the personal and loving gifts like this that make Valentine’s Day so special.
7. Ceramic Photo Coasters
You can make these gorgeous coasters for any occasion, but they are especially meaningful on Valentine’s Day. To personalize these you could use photos of you as a couple, pictures from places you have been (either your own or from postcards) or anything else that is meaningful to the two of you.
8. Nip with Love
These will surely be a hit with your boy! They're cute, they're small, and they're great if you're looking for something pocket-sized or even something that he can travel with. Just tie a little cute note around his favorite nip and he'll think you are the bee's knees!
9. Sports Fan?

10. Sugary Sweets
While you probably don't think that gift baskets are the way to go, what about one like this? Get together quite a few of his favorite candies and write adorable notes on them! This is the alternative mentioned earlier, if your honey doesn't like booze.
