Last Minute and DIY Valentine’s Day Gifts

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner (less than a week away) and although it might be one of those overly commercialized holidays that everybody dreads/loves, there is also no one on the planet that wouldn’t enjoy a little something special from a loved on that day. Yes, Valentine’s is all about celebrating love, romance, and the person you are with. But so many of these ideas, gifts and DIY’s that we have sourced from the internet would be just as appreciated if given to a family member, friend, or someone else dear in your life. So – skip that bouquet of red roses and heart box of chocolates and instead here are a few of our favorites (done by other bloggers or crafters), all of which can be pulled together very last minute.


Valentines Day Diy Food Heart shaped pizzas dinner romantic easy

They say that the key to someone’s heart is through their stomach, and while we love a good date night out to the most romantic restaurant in town, there is something special, meaningful, and romantic about a homemade meal that you enjoy together. Whether that be breakfast in bed, a picnic for the park, a romantic rooftop dinner (on your own roof), or just a sweet treat for them to take to work in the morning here are some of our favorite ideas rounded up together.


Valentines Day DIY Polaroids city tour book couple activity

There is no better way to pull at someone’s heartstrings than by giving them something that actually means something and feels heartfelt. All the bouquets of flowers, pink shaped pancakes, bubbly rosé, and monetary gifts won’t matter or feel as special as something that is sentimental and personal to the person that you are giving it to. So here are a few of our favorites that speak directly to the heart – and not by way of food, gifts, or cards. These are the ones that they will remember for many years to come and remind them why you care.

It’s not valentine’s without a little va-va-voooooom. And while we don’t need to go into deep detail of ALL the many romantic things you can do for “your person” (at this point hopefully you know them well enough to know what cranks there engine) here are a few simple but romantic ideas that might score you a few brownie points.

We’ll be having our 20th anniversary this year and the “recreate your first date” is a great idea!! I think I’ll suggest the photo book tour of our town for Valentine’s Day. Thanks for these fun ideas!! P.S. What can you tell us about those heart cookies?

The ‘recreate your first date’ would be fun – we went out to eat with two other (established) couples. One of these couples has since gone through a bitter divorce. Recreating that dinner would be, um, interesting!

Very fun ideas from the fantastic EHD crew! Thanks! I will definitely do the post-it notes heart on the mirror for my husband. Happy VD to all!

I m totally agree with you that now a days, Valentine’s Day has been hi-jacked for commercial reasons, resulting in throngs high cost gift items. But still many people give importance to time, care, love and diy gifts over monetary gifts. Some best DIY gift
