Giving gifts for the one that you love can be difficult. You want to make sure your gift accurately communicates how much you love him or her and how much you care. You might also want to make sure the gift is something they will appreciate and cherish forever. Whether their birthday is coming up, an anniversary is quickly approaching or you are getting a head start on Valentine’s Day, here are some DIY sentimental gifts that are sure to let your partner know how much he or she means to you.
A Jar With Love Quotes
Get an inexpensive jar or use one you already own and decorate the outside with fabric like burlap and twine. You could also keep the jar the way it is, but incorporate colorful pieces of paper with the best love quotes on them. Every time your love picks out a love quote, they will know how much they are loved.
What You Love
Get some cardstock and write down all the reasons you love them. Punch a hole or two into each card and put them together in a binding ring. You can have as many reasons as you want and your reasons can go on forever.
Open When Envelopes
This is a great idea, especially if you and your loved one are long distance. It can be tough remembering how much you are cared for and vice versa. Write several letters or short notes and put them each into separate envelopes. Label each envelope with the heading “Open When” and fill in the rest. They can “open when” they need to know how much you care for them or they can “open when” they need to know how funny they are.
Make Them A Candy Box
Use a plastic organizer and fill each compartment with your love’s favorite candy and sweets. This is a better alternative to a basic and boring box of chocolates. Creating your own candy box adds a personal touch unique to your love and the candy they love.
Create A Date Night Jar
Put more use to those mason jars you did not use for your love quote jar. For this idea, all you need is popsicle sticks and a pen. Write cool, unique, interactive date ideas on each popsicle stick and put them all into the mason jar. Decorate the outside nicely or leave it minimal. Whatever your love likes, you know. The date ideas can include things to do all year long or for the days you run out of fun date ideas.
Make A Sugar Scrub
This is a really good option when you may not have the budget to treat your love to a day at the spa. No worries! A homemade sugar scrub allows you to bring the spa to them. All you need is some coconut oil, fruit extract of your choosing and sugar. The scrub can be used to exfoliate dead skin, giving your love kissably smooth skin.
