It’s hard to believe that Valentines is a week away. Man, time sure flies. I’ve been married for thirteen years now, and it gets harder and harder to find gift ideas to give to the one I love. I prefer DIY Gifts to give to my husband over store bought. Not that store bought gifts don’t serve their purpose. There is just something more intimate about actually making a gift yourself. Here are the best DIY Gifts to Give to Your Significant Other for Valentine’s Day.
Pinterest is the best spot to search for the best DIY gifts you can make, or gifting ideas you can put together to give to someone you love. I spent hours going through hundreds of great pinnable ideas that are perfect for not only Valentine’s Day but any day of the year.
This is one of my favorite DIY ideas for Valentine’s Day. A romantic picnic (indoors or outdoors) with a bottle of wine or something bubbly. Some type of dessert, flowers, a blanket to cuddle on where you can share great food and conversation with the one you adore.

12 Days of Gifts
I love this idea which comes from Friday We’re In Love. You have to check out her post as she explains one of the most romantic DIY gifts I’ve ever seen. It’s basically a book of dates (one for each month) where some are prepaid and some free. Dates like a movie night with the one you love, hiking trip, weekend getaway. Just for two!
