Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and many people are gearing up for it, thinking of different ways to express their love and concern for the people who are important to them. It's but natural to give presents, but these need not be expensive. You can work on DIY gifts for a more personal touch, which will surely be greatly appreciated by the recipients.
Here are some DIY gift ideas that your "valentine" will surely love:
1. Charmed Bookmark
Bookmarks are classic gifts which you can make on your own and can be given to almost anyone. You can actually put together a string of beads to serve as the bookmark. Use your loved one's favorite colors and pick out the type of beads that you believe would best be appreciated by the person. Then embellish the ends of the string with unique, delightful charms. These may be heart-shaped or may come in other love or valentine designs. Or you may opt for charms that depict the person's interests or favorites.
Indeed you can come up with your own distinct and personalized bookmark gifts. Feel free to browse through our vast collection of beads, charms, and pendants.
2. Sweet Scrapbook
How about reminding your special someone of the wonderful memories you have shared in the past? You can be creative about it by coming up with a mini scrapbook! Here you can place your photos that show the good times you've had. You may want to include a few keepsakes too, such as movie and concert tickets and written notes. Then decorate the pages using a variety of coloring materials, and perhaps a couple of beads and gemstones you can stick on. Bring out the artist in you!
3. One-of-a-Kind Bouquet
Rather than giving your mom the customary bouquet of flowers, why not produce a one-of-a-kind bouquet that incorporates different items she will surely make use of and appreciate? For instance, buy an apron, a blouse, a coin purse, and a pack of hair accessories. Roll up the fabric ones, the apron and blouse. Attach each one to the top part of a colored thick stick as if they are flowers on stems. Stick them together onto a pot or wrap them all together with nice paper and ribbons.
What if you want to do this for your boyfriend or husband? Then you can probably put together a pair of boxers, some hankies, a small bottle of cologne, and a necktie. Just make sure that the items you choose are light enough to be carried on top of your sticks.
You may stick on beads and gems on the pot or hang them from the sticks along with some charms. You may also utilize these embellishments for securing a wrapped bouquet like with a rubber band or ribbon.
4. Treats in a Jar
If you'd like to try your hand at homemade goodies, you may want to bake heart-shaped cookies or brownies. You can even make heart-shaped smores! But if you don't have time or you're not confident enough to do this, you can simply buy the treats and place them in a glass jar. Decorate your gift with a string of beads that you wrap around the lid. Hang a charm at the end of the string, plus a note with your Valentine's Day message.
