This gift is perfect for a friend, romantic partner or just about anyone!

You’ll have an instant party and a gift anyone would love to receive!

Love Coupons

These are targeted more for a romantic relationship, but they can work for a child to give to a parent or between siblings, friends, etc. This idea requires only creativity and a cute presentation! Find cute envelopes or festive cards at a craft store and write a different “coupon” for each. Tie the stack with a ribbon and let the gift receiver redeem at any time they choose! Some creative coupon ideas:

  • Free massage or foot rub
  • 1 home cooked meal
  • Clean up the dishes after diner
  • 1 coupon to pick the TV show or movie that night

Baking Kit

Include a box of brownie mix, spatula, sprinkles, cookie cutter and any other type of non-perishable baking item of your choosing. Package in a cute box or bag with a festive ribbon. Who knows, you may get a free brownie out of it!

Take the pressure off and be creative with these personalized, low-cost DIY gift ideas to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year!
