Valentine’s Day is a stone throw away and I’m still here on the couch wondering what is the best gift to give him for this special event. The problem about spending Valentine’s Day with the person we’ve spent years with is that eventually we will run out of ideas to surprise him on this day. Watch, shirt, shoes, tie; hmmm… they all seem traditional to me. I want something fresh. I am looking for something that is out of the box and with a personal touch to give him this year. Well, here are some unique and creative gift ideas. Hoping these DIY presents can make our Hearts Day more memorable than ever.
A Jar Full of Love
Perfect for working and busy mums like us, this gift won’t take much of our time. All you need is a clean jar and lots of love to get this ready. Get some colourful papers and write some heart warming messages to your better half. Roll the papers and place them inside the jar. Decorate the jar with some ribbons, cute buttons and heart-shaped papers. Nothing will be more touching than using your own romantic words to express how much you love and adore him.
Write Your Own Love Story
Get your pen and paper ready. Go down the memory lane and reminisce your good old times. How you met, your first date, your first kiss and the day he got on one knee and proposed to spend the rest of his days with you. Compile and write them in the most romantic way possible. Throw some of your old pictures in and add some love decors to the pages. Bind it and design a cute cover page with the title of your own love story.
Win His Heart Through Some Music
Rekindle your passion through music. Music is an effective way to reach his inner soul. Pick some songs that both of you love the most. Get your pitch ready and sing them up. Record and save them on a USB. Listen and dance to the songs through the night.
Romantic Coupons Can Buy You Love
Money can’t buy you love, but your personalized romantic coupons can help you get some. An excellent DIY gift for your hubby, love coupons can add some spark to your Valentine’s Day. All you need are some papers and a pinch of creativity to prepare this. Add some twist to the coupons. You can put in some rules, expiration dates, love thoughts – it all depends on your imagination. A daytime date, an hour of passionate massage, a quality movie night and a fancy dinner; these are some exciting activities that you can add in to your coupons.
10 Things I Love About You
There is no need to spend several dollars to make his Valentine’s Day special. Think of the 10 things that made you fall in love with him. One unique way to prepare the list is to print it on a glossy paper and put it on a personalized photo frame. Or, you can also have them printed on a mug, a shirt or a table coaster. Give this on Valentine’s Day and you will be surprised at how your simple words can put a big smile to his face.
