Homemade Gift Ideas for Husband on Valentine's Day

  1. Watch Holder: If crafts were your favorite subject at school, you need no aid in preparing this. Take a big see though bottle (glass or plastic) bottle with a wide mouth. Cover the lid with some decorative paper, preferably pink or red. Fence it with a matching lace/ribbon. Just make sure, the bottle can be opened and closed at ease. On the sides, place a kiss with red ink or lipstick and if possible write “I love you” with permanent red marker. Every time your hubby places the watch, or takes it out, he must feel good as the holder holds lot of passion and love of the creator apart from the watches.

  2. Hearts with straws: Pick a bunch of colorful straws from the nearby store apart from a poster-board. Paste a red/pink decorative paper on the board and now bend the straws into shapes of heart of different size. Use glue stick to stick it on the poster-board and color the central part in red. Then write some private beautiful verses on the hearts with glitters so that they become prominent even at dark. Place the entire decoration at the wall of the Hall and give him a reason to fall in love with you once again.

  3. Love baked cakes: They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach-but you are already reigning there. So the extra efforts of preparing mouthwatering cakes for him on the V-Day will simple consolidate your position in his heart. Purchase heart shaped cake moulds and bake your cakes there. You can decorate them with red jam, pink strawberry sauce or liquid chocolate – all three add much to the mood of the occasion. See the bliss on his face at the dinner table and that will make you happy too.

  4. Little, but heartfelt gifts: Write a long letter describing what you feel for him and how have been your married life so far. Concentrate on minute details like remembering the first kiss, or the first date or the first night spent together after marriage. He will also reiterate those moments and feel nostalgic, yet romantic. Enjoy the bliss on his face and the blush on his cheeks. If you are good in art, draw his portrait and give him a nice surprise. Knit a handmade sweater of his favorite color and hand it over to him as the dinner is over.
