by Erin

Give gifts from the heart this Valentine’s Day with this list of DIY gifts. From homemade lip balms to red velvet hot chocolate, I’ve got you covered. 

14 DIY Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas
Making a gift for your dude? Paint a mug with loveable phrases, inside jokes, monogram, favorite sports team/movie/whatever and fill it with a bag full of homemade hot cocoa mix and marshmallows. Heck maybe he’d enjoy some manly peppermint lip balm too.

Wanna go crazy and make gifts for your friends? Doodle hearts onto the mugs and fill with a bag of chai tea mix, homemade chocolate lip balm, and some sparkly hair ties. I’m tempted to make myself the same combo.

  1. DIY Hair Ties (red, pink, and/or glittery elastic)
  2. DIY Heart Shoe Clips
  3. DIY Marbled Clay Ring Dish
  4. DIY Painted Mugs (heart or loveable phrases)
  5. DIY Word Magnets (more loveable phrases/words)
  6. Homemade Cinnamon Hot Chocolate Mix
  7. Homemade Dark Hot Chocolate Mix
  8. Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix
  9. Homemade Peanut Butter Hot Cocoa Mix
  10. Homemade Vanilla Chai Tea Mix
  11. Lip Balms
  12. Peanut Butter Marshmallows
  13. Red Velvet Hot Cocoa Mix & Cream Cheese Marshmallows
  14. Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate Mix
  15. White Hot Chocolate Pods
