Unique DIY Gifts For Your Girlfriend:
Open When Envelopes
Get some envelopes and write on them ‘Open when’ and add some situations. You can add whatever you like. Inside put some pictures or a letter or messages or anything related to the situation inside the envelope. For example, take an envelope. On it write, ‘Open when you miss me’. Inside put a love letter and some pictures of you together. On another envelope write ‘Open when you are stressed’ and inside it put a short note that would bring a smile on her face and a square of bubble wrap. Create as many envelopes as you can think of. You will see a smile creep up on her face every time she opens one.
Her Sharpie Mug
First, thoroughly clean the mug by rubbing alcohol or nail paint remover. Make sure you remove all labels and tags. Create a rough sketch of what you want to draw on the mug and then draw it carefully on the mug using sharpie paint pens. Keep it clear of any odd lines or smudges as it will make the mug look ugly. It takes 3 days for the paint to dry completely. After three days, your mug is ready to be baked. Place it in the cold oven and bake it on 425 degrees Fahrenheit for an hour. Let it cool in the oven. Your mug is ready. Wrap the ribbon around it and put some goodies inside. Your mug is ready to be gifted.
Date Night Jar
Color some Popsicle sticks. With a marker write some date ideas on it like ‘popcorns and a romantic movie tonight’ or ‘a candle lit dinner at home’ etc. You can include your ideas or Google them. Once you are done arrange all these sticks in a jar and decorate the jar. You can also replace the Popsicle sticks with colored papers.
Valentine Light Bulb
This is one very beautiful and thoughtful DIY gift for your girlfriend. But you need to do it carefully. First you need a fused light bulb. Now hollow the bulb and for that you will have to pull out the solder point with pliers first and then tenderly break the brass insulator. Then slowly pull out the filament. Now take a cork square base or you can pick any base for that matter. Now take a red thing gauge wire and twist it to make a heart shaped filament. Glue it to the base and then slowly insert it under the emptied bulb and glue the bulb to the base as well.
Reasons Why I Love You
This one is easy and very romantic. Prepare a booklet that tells her the reasons why you love her. She will cherish this for years to come.
For this, whisk in a bowl 1 cup baking soda, 1/2 cup citric acid solids and 1/2 cup Epsom salt. In a different container put 1 tsp water, 2 tsp essential oil, 3 tsp olive oil and a little of food color. Slowly add your liquid ingredients to your solid ingredients until the liquid is absorbed thoroughly. Now, put the mixture in the bath bomb molds and then gently remove after some time. They are ready.
Tiny Polaroid Magnet
Gather some cute pictures of you together. Print tiny Polaroid of them and stick them on fridge magnets. You have brought the memories to her fridge.
Alphabet Message Calendar
Take a spiral notebook that has horizontal spirals. On each page write one alphabet and a love message for her starting from the same alphabet. You can decorate it as well.
Love Note Felt Notebooks
Buy a notebook with soft cover. Open it in half and cut it in heart shape. Rub the edges with sandpaper to clear extra and loose papers. Cut the felt in shape of the notebook but leave some space to wrap over the edges. Decorate it with laces and ribbons and write your love notes inside.
Write some cute messages in papers and put it in the jar. You can also put one message everyday for her. This could be one of the best gift ideas you can try to offer to your girl friend in this upcoming special occasion.
