As soon as the month of February dawns upon the world, the air is filled with love. And why not? Valentine’s Day is near! It is a day that celebrates love and affection. However, celebrating this special day brings the woes of gifting as well. Everyone who is in a relationship is searching for the perfect gift to showcase their love. So, what is the best way to do so? Make something from scratch!
A Do-It-Yourself gift can work wonders in strengthening the bond between two lovebirds and also displays how much you care about each other. Here are a few DIY ideas to make this a fun-filled Valentine’s Day.
- Customised Chocolate Box
What speaks more of Valentine’s Day than a box of mouth-watering chocolates? One that has been made with thoughtful love! If your SO loves chocolates, you can set out to make a customised box that contains all their favourite ones. You can also try your hands at making chocolates at home and placing them in a handmade box that speaks of your love. Another great idea is to customise a mason jar, by painting quotes or doodles, and putting in some tasty candy treats that they love. So, let this Valentine’s Day be a chocolatey affair and get your customised candy box to surprise your partner.
- Bath Kit
A DIY bath kit can become one of the most intimate and caring gifts for your loved one, allowing them a day of self-love and pampering with the ultimate spa therapy at home. You can make flavoured soaps and mould them into little hearts or craft a colourful bath bomb infused with your partner’s favourite essential oils. Fruity scrubs made with sugar, fruit extracts and essential oils can also become a great addition to your bath hamper. You can place them all together in a cute basket and decorate it with glitter or lace to enhance the look. So, get your thinking caps on and make sure your special someone has the best Valentine’s Day ever.
- A Personalized Mason Jar Flower Pot
Is your partner into gardening? Or do they love flowers a lot? You can make this Valentine’s Day extra special by gifting them their own personal garden. You can customise a few mason jars with paint or stickers and plant small shrubs of vibrant and fragrant flowers that your SO will fall in love with. This is an amazing way to showcase your love for your partner and nature at the same time. Gifting plants can also help in nurturing your relationship and adding more warmth to it.
- Scented Candles
Ditch the clichéd flowers and gift a scented candle instead. The best part is, they are easy to make and customise. Just melt the wax, mix it with some fragrant oils or essences and pour it into a mould of your choice. You can also carve out quotes on the candles or add some personalised designs that will surprise your partner even more. So, set up a hamper of beautiful, aromatic candles this Valentine’s Day and make sure your special someone has a great day to look forward to.
Here’s a Suggestion: Fill up a decorated mason jar with small bits of paper stating all the places you want to visit with your loved one in the months to come.
Let these DIY ideas make sure you and your significant other has the best Valentine’s Day. A day that speaks of your care, thoughtfulness and growing love for each other.
