[Pin Board]: DIY Gift Ideas for Valentine’s Day

    February 5, 2013

    The cynics will tell you that Valentine’s Day is a capitalistic pseudo-holiday, designed to make us buy chocolate and cardstock hearts for the people we love. But your affection doesn’t have to be about dollars and cents! We’ve found some simple (and some not-so-simple) DIY ideas that make great gifts for your loved ones this Valentine’s Day. Take a look at our Pinterest board, and get inspired to create something truly special for your special someone. Here are some of our favorites:

    Baked Goods: Ladies, they say a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but these DIY baking ideas are more than just delicious. Ideas like these cute cupcakes in a mason jar package are creative and fun, showing a little extra care for the person you care about!

    Custom Candles: Something like this is not only simple to make, it can hold a very special meaning for the recipient. Find a custom quote that you two hold dear, or an inside joke, or even a photo of the two of you, and create a piece of home décor that will always warm your hearts.

    Spa Treatments: Homemade beauty treatments are more than a fun way to raid the fridge on a night in; they can also make great gifts! These are perfect for mothers, girlfriends, or other ladies in your life – you can even schedule a get-together for some homemade pampering!
