However, if you’re wanting to try something new or shake things up this Valentine’s Day, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve compiled for you a list of six easy last-minute DIYs to make for your loved one.

1. Things I Love About You in a Jar

This DIY is hands-down the most thoughtful one on the list. Think about the little or big things that you love about your partner, write it down on a piece of paper and pop it in a jar.

And luckily for you, there’s a recipe for it on my blog–you can even go the extra mile and cut it into a heart shape.

3. DIY Fruit Skewers

Using your partner’s favourite fruits like pineapple, apple, strawberries, watermelon, honeydew melon etc., and wooden skewers, create a cute (and delicious!) breakfast or snack. More details on how to make it here.

I love candy. And so will your partner when you gift them this. All you need for this DIY is a jar, your significant other’s favourite candy and labels. Download the one pictured above here, customize your own label or buy stick-on labels at a craft/dollar store and handwrite your own pun!

Here some examples:

  • Hershey Kisses (This is how much I could kiss you)
  • Sweet Tarts (You’re my swee-tart)
  • Candy melons (You are one in a melon)
  • Starbursts (You make my heart burst)
  • Skittles (You colour my world)
  • Jelly beans (Thanks for bean there for me)

5. Hanging Heart Flower DIY!

This beautiful DIY was created by A Beautiful Mess. This one will definitely take a bit more handiwork–but is still considered easy to do. Bonus: the flowers will last forever! (spoiler: they’re fake)

6. Punny Succulents (I’m a succer for you!) 

Tiny plants are really cute. Consider purchasing a longer-lasting plant for your loved one if you dislike fake flowers. If you’re too lazy to paint a pot, buy one at a craft/dollar store near you. Then, pot your succulent, download and print these signs and stick them into the pot. Easy peasy!
