Homemade Valentine Present Ideas

Overview

Homemade Valentine's Day presents will put less of a dent in your wallet than ones you buy in a store. But more importantly, your partner will be touched by the time you invested in creating the gifts.

Baking

Whip up a batch of your sweetheart's favorite peanut butter cookies, a tray of chocolate cupcakes or a heart-shaped red velvet cake covered in butter cream icing.

Writing

Write your boyfriend a love letter that tells him what makes him special to you. Create a poem that relates how much you love him or design your own Valentine's e-card online.

Music

Burn a CD or compile a digital play list of the songs that express your love for your girlfriend. Write liner notes that explain why each track reminds you of her.

Crafts

Put your fingers to use: Knit a sweater or a scarf, stitch together a blanket made from old clothes or sew patches of his favorite bands on his jeans.

Romantic Scene

Put together a romantic scene for your wife. Give her a massage in the tub while soft music plays and candles glow. Take her stargazing by the ocean with a bottle of wine. Or make popcorn, build a fire and snuggle under a blanket while watching movies.

Chores

Do a major chore your spouse dislikes such as organizing the closets, cleaning the garage, maintaining the pool or washing the car. He'll appreciate you doing the task for him.
