10 Homemade Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him

It is already difficult to buy gifts for guys, and when it comes to Valentine’s Day, the issue just becomes ten times harder. Because now you do not only have to buy a gift for him but a one that has a romantic gesture as well. But we all love our partners and probably are willing to go that extra mile in order to get him the gift that he will not only adore but will love wholeheartedly. Hence, we have come up with an idea through which your gift will not only hold sentimental value but will also be unique from the things you have been buying for him all these years. How so? Well. This time around, maybe instead of buying something fancy, you can have something fancy made at home? Yes, we have prepared a list of 10 homemade Valentine’s Day gifts for him that you can choose from. If you have ample time and are willing to do more, you can even combine two or three gifts from the list below but even completing one of these will make your Valentine’s Day 10 times brighter. So, without further ado, let’s jump straight to the list and get our gifts finalized:

  1. Photo Album: no matter how cliché it may sound, this is one of the best ways to express love while making an effort. Also, you don’t always have to use the same old way. There has been much advancement in the creativity of people that you now have dozens of different ways of doing so. For example, you make a box exploding of memories, you can have polaroids in a form of reel, you can go classic with a notebook full of pictures of both of you from your favorite places or you can have a wall hanging of the best photo collage that can stay in his room from now on!
  2. Treat in shoes: this unique and different way is one of the cutest gifts. We all know that one thing which almost every guy is crazy about is shoes. Even if they have 25 pairs, they would think of spending a good chunk of their salary on that new one that just came out. Hence save their salary for once and get it for them, but the issue is that gifting shoes might not feel right on Valentine’s Day. What’s the solution? Well, instead of gifting a box of shoes, gift him shoes filled with different treats that he adores. It could be anything from homemade cologne to his favorite pack of peanuts and some cute notes expressing your love that he can find while exploring his new pair of shoes!
  3. Post it heart: almost all of us use post it’s in our office lives. They help us navigate through the day and keep a track of our work so that we don’t forget anything important. However, this valentine’s day, you can spend all your time using these post its to describe your love and affection for him and then having them posted on the mirror or some other place in the shape of a heart. If you think that it might get destroyed after certain days and you wouldn’t want that as it is going to serve as a reminder of your love for him, maybe have it framed so that he can look at them every morning and feel like the luckiest guy alive on earth!
  4. Love meals: whether it is a man or a woman, all of us love it when our partners treat us with the food of our choice. Making an effort to cook something that he admires but you can’t cook it on a daily basis because its time consuming and we all are busy will make him feel so special and he will respect you even more. Because while he completely understands the fact that you are as busy as him, when he will get this occasion feast, it will melt his heart!
  5. Love keychain: guys are generally more careless, apart from a few exceptions obviously but even then, it is always a good idea to have a keychain for your car keys or even your house keys because God knows when we might lose them. Hence, this valentine’s day, you can make them a beautiful love keychain which can have all the reasons why you love them from A-Z. This way, whenever they are about to lose their keys, your love (i.e. your keychain) will save them, just as it saves you every day from drowning in the mess this world has become!
  6. Handmade notebook: well, this one is more specifically for those of you who have a boyfriend or husband that likes to write a lot or whose job requires it. Basically, someone who prefers pen and paper over a word file for his personal notes. You can make a notebook for him which can be personalized by adding your pictures after a bunch of pages that can work for splitting sections. Also, you can have a really nice cover that also shows your love. Just be as creative as you can be so that he loves the diary while also using it!
  7. Cupcakes or cookies: whichever it is, baking things for him or preparing a desert of his choice will always work like a charm. After all, we know how much we crave for a good desert and if you have a skill, you might as well use it! However, if you are not sure about your baking skills, you can have other alternatives as well depending upon his likings!
  8. Wine tags: gifting a wine bottle on Valentine’s Day is classic but gifting one with a personalized wine tag is what we need right now. The personalized wine tags are really not that difficult. You can make one online and have it printed or you can make one yourself while using your bare hands as well. It all depends on how much time and effort are you willing to put in and also about the fact that which skill set are you more acquainted with! Additionally, you can also have a couple of pictures on it if you can afford to be a bit extra!
  9. Be crafty: while being crafty can include a number of things, what we mean here is the skill of embroidery. What you can do is make a heart through embroidery and have your initials crafted on each side of it. Then you can frame it before gifting it to him. While this can be one of those gifts which take up a lot of time, when he will see it, he will be able to realize how much you truly love him and how going an extra mile just to make him smile is what you can do happily just the way he has done it countless times!
  10. Love map: last on the list is yet again one of the most unique ways of preparing a homemade gift for this Valentine’s Day. If you have been with your significant other for quite a long time now and you guys have been traveling around a lot, you can probably go for this option. Take a map or make one from scratch and mark all the places where you had some amazing memories in order to have a nostalgic feeling while being able to value your relationship together!
