DIY Valentine’s Day Gifts That Are Made With Love

If you think about it, Valentine’s Day is a pretty strange holiday. It’s supposed to be the day when couples find the perfect gift for each other. Instead, you’ll find yourself standing in the greeting card aisle trying to determine which card with the flying, half-naked baby is the least offensive.

There is a way to do Valentine’s Day properly. As with most things in life, if you want something done right, you’ve got to do it yourself. These DIY Valentine’s Day gifts are actually pretty awesome, and your sweetheart won’t have to pretend to like it. Best of all, they were made by you, so you know for sure that love went into it (along with some sweat and possibly a few tears). Check out these adorable DIY gifts perfect for your Valentine.

1. The tree of love

A long time ago, we learned that viciously carving your initials into the trunk of a tree was cute… unless you were the tree. Because we love trees, why don’t you immortalize your love with this adorable DIY project. Use a stencil to cut out the tree, using a page from one of your favorite books, or another eco-friendly option. Attach two hearts with your names lovingly penned on them. Frame it up and voila! (No trees were harmed in this process).DIY Valentine's Day Gifts That Are Made With Love

Gift your hunny this infused bourbon kit you can make yourself for some old-fashioned warm fuzzies.

4. Homemade Handwarmers

Even the coldest of hearts will melt at the sight (and touch!) of these DIY hand warmers. Cut out 2 identical hearts with felt, and use a running stitch to seal them together.
