Valentine’s Day is all about showing your loved ones that you care, which isn’t exactly something that needs to be done with flowers and chocolates. Even so, a gift definitely doesn’t hurt – especially when that gift is a handmade present. Luckily, we’ve got you covered with some of our favorite DIY V-Day gifts that you can totally whip up just days ahead of the holiday!
Heart-Shaped Bath Bombs
Give the sweet, sweet gift of a little r&r by making your own bath bombs for that special someone. Not only do these DIY bath bombs take a heart-shape form that’s perfect for Valentine’s Day, but they have the lovely scent of “Love Potion” essential oil, which is a combination of jasmine and sandalwood.

Wood Log Heart Coasters
Nobody wants to deal with unsightly glass and mug rings on a table, and these adorable handmade coasters help keep the problem at bay. Made from wood log, these rustic coasters play on the cute idea of etching the initials of you and your loved one into a tree trunk, but this time, deliver the sentiment with the help of some paint and stencils.

V-Day Succulent Planters
Sure, a bouquet of flowers on Valentine’s Day is sweet, but it’s definitely been done (again, and again, and again). Go for something different – not to mention, much more low-maintenance – by gifting a succulent that you’ve potted yourself in a festive pink bucket with pebbles. A sweet message that you can customize yourself helps put the perfect finishing touch onto the gift.

Berry Oreo Cookie Balls
Okay, whether we like it or not, a Valentine’s Day without chocolate is just not going to cut it. Still, to help you break free from the usual selection, this simple recipe combines Oreos (it uses Berry Burst Oreos, but you can probably go ahead and use classic Oreos, or whatever variety you like best) and chocolate to create a special treat that’s far from the ordinary gift. (Oh, and you might want to make some extra so that you can keep a few for yourself.)
