I took a poll on Instastories a few weeks ago asking which of you preferred store bought vs. DIY gifts for Valentines day, and to my surprise nearly 70% of you said you liked DIY Valentines gifts over store bought. So since so many of you wanted to see more DIY content, I am sharing 3 DIY Valentines day ideas that you can make for your someone special!
How We Met Decor
I love this idea especially if you are in a long distance relationship or don’t live near the place your first met. For example, I have a throw pillow of the coordinates of our hometown beach and where we spent one of our first dates. You can also print out maps for each of your special locations, cut into hearts and frame as wall decor. Its cute, personal and speaks from the heart!
365 Days of Notes Jar
Write on 365 little slips of paper words of love, memories, motivation or anything else your partner might love to hear from you. Think of these for both the good and bad days. The surprise is that each day brings a different message handwritten by you!
DIY Photo Book
Everyone loves a good photo album! Showcase your “glow up” by throwing it back to the very first picture you’ve ever taken together, first kiss, first date and share the story of your love in photos. This is super easy and cheap – all it takes is a small photo album to turn your photo memories into a keepsake.
I really hope these ideas help you as your prepare for Valentines day! It really is one of my favorite holidays so if you need any other ideas OR have any ideas that you would like to share, leave a comment below! We are all about helping each other out here!
