6 DIY Valentine's Day Gift Ideas For Him

There's still time!

By Kaitlin Livingston

If you are scrambling for last minute gift ideas for your man, you’ve come to the right place. It’s hard to find a good Valentine’s Day gift for him. They don’t want a teddy bear, candles, or jewelry (girls, we are easy to shop for). I also find men have everything they need already!

If you are having a hard time thinking of something unique to give him on Valentine's Day here are some DIY/creative gifts.

1. A Gift Basket 

He will love this idea! All you have to do is get a basket and some plastic wrap. Buy some of his favorite things like beer, candy, cologne, and chocolate and put it in the basket. I would also add boxers and socks. Maybe even throw in a piece of lingerie you can wear later… Wouldn’t hurt!

2. Movie Basket

You could do this two ways. You could either pick a movie you think he would actually like or go with a chick-flick. Once you decide which movie, buy it, and put it in a basket with champagne, treats, and a cozy blanket.

3. Scrapbook

I did this for my anniversary. Not only was it meaningful, but it was also fun to put together! Get a bunch of photos developed, then organize the pages as different events/holidays/moments. I promise he will love it!

4. Booze Bouquet 

When your boyfriend hands you flowers, you can impress him with this bouquet. I would say this is the easiest one on this list to put together. Get a metal bucket, and wooden dowels to glue on the back of the alcohol bottles. If you get a foam ball and put it in the bucket, you can stick the wooden sticks into it so it all holds together.

5. Personalized Mug

This is probably the cheapest on the list. All you need to do is get a plain white mug and a black permanent marker. Write anything you want on the mug like a lyric from a song you two love. When you are finished with the mug put it in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes so the marker sets.

6. Map it

Get a map and a photo frame. Cut out meaningful places the two of you have been from the map (I would cut it into heart shapes). Stick it in the photo frame. This is one of my favorite ideas.

He will love any of these gift ideas. They are coming from the heart, and they are unique. If all else fails, throw on some lingerie. If you don’t have lingerie, remember the way to a guy’s heart is through his stomach!
