In today’s world, the way we say love you to each other is not merely through words or actions but also by giving gifts. So, with Valentine’s Day approaching, I am sure you all must be scratching your head, thinking about what you should give your partner? That’s why we brought the list of DIY Valentine’s Day Gifts only for you.
Gift-giving has become an important aspect of our lives. When I say gifts, you must be thinking about teddy bears, Valentine cards or something that is available in the market. But no. The best and the most admired gift that you can give to your partner is a thoughtful one, one that is self-made and handcrafted specially for them by you.
So, here are some ideas of the best DIY Valentine’s Day Gifts. Make some gifts for your partner and make them feel special this valentines week:
1. “YOU ARE MY WORLD” GLOBE
When in love with someone, they become your whole world, and what can be a better gift for such a person than this?
This DIY craft is very easy and cheap. Just take a globe, and you write( you can use marker or glitter sheets) on it a message for your dear like “YOU ARE MY WORLD” or “YOU MEAN THE WORLD TO ME”. You can place this gift on your partner’s nightstand and surprise them.
2. SWEETHEART VASE
Everybody loves flowers, but it’s such a common gift. So, instead of gifting flowers, you can gift your Valentine a sweetheart vase. To make this, you will require a mason jar, red felt, baker’s twine, a large needle, and glue. Firstly, cut small hearts from the red felt. Then, thread your bakers twine on the needle and push it from the centre of the heart. Now, hang all the hearts on the twine, leaving a few inches between two adjacent hearts. Lastly, using glue or tape, fix one end of this thread on the bottom of the jar and entwine it all the way to the top. There, fix the other loose end and voila, your vase is ready.
This vase is personalized and hence is a better gift than a vase in the market.
3. ENGRAVED CANDLE
What says love you forever better than a candle with carved initials? This is a great personalized gift that you can give to your flame.
Items needed will be a candle, gold leaf pen, ballpoint pen, linoleum cutter, tape, and design.
Firstly, fix your design over the candle so that when drawing on the candle, you don’t slip. Use a ballpoint pen when tracing. This will be your guide when cutting so be careful. Use the linoleum cutter to cut, and the length should be wide enough to accommodate the tip of gold leaf pen. Lastly, use the gold leaf pen to carve the initials and give it a beautiful look. Let it dry and then it is ready for you to give it to your loved ones.
4. GLITTERY HEART SHAPED BOXES
