6 DIY Valentine's Day Gift Ideas for Her

Every girl enjoys beautiful flowers and chocolates for Valentine's Day. But when one or both of these gifts are paired with a little DIY thought, She's guaranteed to go head over heels!

Valentine's Day isn't that hard to get right. The day is about showing the one you love just how deep your adoration runs. This year, send her the flowers, but also give her something made with your own two hands.

  • Wine and dine her, but add some DIY to your wooing to really impress. This simple wine bottle craft requires a bit of chalkboard paint and metallic paint pens. Personalize with a loving phrase that's just for the two of you!

  • This DIY Valentine's Day gift is perfect for your Valentine if she's got a sweet tooth, and you're sure to impress if you bake her a batch.

    You needn't be an expert baker to achieve success in the kitchen either - this cupcake idea screams Valentine's Day with it's pink and red color, but doesn't require a complicated process to get right. Apply Krissy's concept to a boxed mix for an even easier process. 

  • For a Valentine who's crafty, a bouquet of these paper flowers may impress her more than any real flowers. Though it certainly doesn't have the same aroma, this bouquet will appeal to her creative side and she'll be so impressed with your DIY skills and the thought you put into her gift!

  • Perhaps your Valentine prefers to indulge in a sweet libation rather than a cupcake? These delectable cocktail recipes are all inspired by love in some way shape or form, plus they're special concoctions she won't sip just any day, which makes them special for this occasion. Channel your inner mixologist to make her one, or, even better, come up with a signature drink inspired by her!

  • Candy hearts are a staple on store shelves as soon as Christmas decorations disappear. Rather than simply handing her a box of these endearing treats, try getting crafty with them and make something she can treasure for years to come. We love these crafty ideas and know she will, too.

  • Chocolate reigns supreme on Valentine's Day, but after years of the same old a girl could get bored. If you're Valentine has hinted she's looking for something more this year, why not try making your own Valentine's Day candy? Jeanne shares a few fudge recipes that couldn't be easier to whip up - seriously, you'd probably spend more time online in the store than you will taking this DIY approach!
