Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and it’s so much more than store bought flowers and expensive dinners. We sometimes take our loved ones for granted, and Valentine’s Day is a day to take a step back and show your family, friends, and partners just how much you love and appreciate them.
DIY gifts are a great way to show off just how much you care because they take time and effort. Here are some fun ideas for DIY gifts that we’re sure your recipients will absolutely adore!
1. Customized Mugs
Show your favourite coffee/tea lover how much you care with this affordable and easy DIY mug. There are so many tips online for how you can take a plain mug, add writing or a design with a sharpie and bake to seal the mug.
2. Open When… Letters
For a DIY Valentine’s Day gift with a sentimental touch, try writing letters for your loved one for different occasions to remind them just how much you love them. Include memories, pep talks, etc. You can even leave these around your CLV Group apartment for your loved one to stumble upon.
3. DIY Bath Bomb
Bring the spa home with homemade bath bombs. These can be super easy to make and are a great way for your loved one to relax.
4. Custom Cutting Board
If your loved one enjoys cooking, a customized cutting board could be the perfect gift. Although it requires wood burning skills, it’s a gift that requires time and effort that your loved one is sure to appreciate.
5. Love Coupon Book
Why limit the love fest to just one day! Spread the love year round with a coupon book full of fun, silly, and sweet IOU’s. Coupons could be for a homemade dinner, massage, etc.
6. Dog Treats
We never want to leave our pets out of the Valentine’s Day love! Try making homemade treats that your pets can enjoy on special occasions.
