10 Handmade Valentine’s Gifts for Him


6. Upcycled Neck WarmerThis practical neckwarmer has a secret! There’s a lovey dovey heart and a sweet note hidden on the inside. But that can be just between you and him!

7. Reclaimed Planner – Does your guy have a hectic schedule? Surprise him with a handmade planner to keep him organized all year long.

8. DIY Herb Planter – If your guy loves to garden, grab some Mason jars, scrap wood, and chalkboard paint, and make him an indoor herb planter, so he can grow all year long!

9. Mustache Mug – For the guy who loves his facial hair. Grab a mug from the thrift store and a few other supplies to make him a custom mug for his morning Joe.

10. Map CoastersCreate a set of coasters using an old map from a road trip that you took together! If you don’t have a sentimental map, you can really use any reclaimed paper that means something to you guys: fliers, posters, brochures, etc.

some good ideas, not sure many of them would work for me, but baking special treats always goes down well!

Good ideas, but none practical for my sweetie.

A good massage for him with some good quality scented oil, dressing up a little for a dinner at home, and a sweet baby movie courtesy of Netflix (since we're expecting any day) should be a lovely, inexpensive combination.

Aw, I really wanted to see how to make those coasters, but the link is dead... The Altoids tin ideas look super fun, they are going in my bookmarks.
