I am a
sucker for a homemade gift. Over the years my kids and I have enjoyed giving and recieving homemade gifts.
With valentines coming up, I am
already thinking of cute homemade gifts for my family.
like to share my favorite homemade gifts for Valentines Day. These are gifts that my family and I made together over the last few years. Please forgive the photography, I didn’t always have a great camera.
Teacher Gift Ideas
How cute are these? I traced my kids hands and taped them to lotion for their teachers with “ you deserve a hand ” written on them.
Homemade bath bombs. You can find bath bomb recipes all over pinterest. We bought cute jars from the dollar tree and filled them with the bath bombs and basket stuffing.
“ You’re the balm” . Who doesn’t like getting lip balm?? Just add them to a bag, add basket stuffing and maybe even a few candies.
These are super cute! All you have to do is get some cute fuzzy socks and either big cupcake liners or cute disposable party bowls. You just roll the socks to look like frosting and place into the liner. I placed these into clear plastic bags with ribbon as well.
Teachers always need school supplies so why not give them a gift they can use. We just added little heart notes on each supply and put them into a cute heart basket.
This was probably the best gift I ever gave my husband, he loved it. I dont know about you, but I have a bad habit of saving valentine boxes. So I used one I had saved and taped little liquor bottles to the bottom of it. Added a little note in the lid and voila, an awesome man gift.
Ok so my husband loves lottery tickets so I made them into a gift for him. I just used a plastic vase, put a styrofoam ball into the vase and hot glued the tickets and treats onto sticks to stick into the styrofoam ball. He loved it!
Valentines for School
Over the years we have made tons of valentine’s for school parties, but this one was actually a favorite in the classroom. We just bought some plastic dinosaurs and taped them to construction paper with “ You are dino mite” written on them.
What kid doesn’t love pop rocks? These were a hit in the classroom as well.
Now that I have older kids, they don’t like the cuddly stuff animals or cute valentine gifts, so I make them baskets with what they like. That year my kids both wanted smart watches so I put them in a cute basket and added candy and a card. They really enjoyed this gift.
Last year I decided to get my family gift cards to their favorite places. I hot glued them to their favored drinks with some candy and beef jerky, they all loved this gift.
I hope you enjoyed my homemade Valentine’s gifts from my family.
Happy Valentine’s Day from my family to yours!! ♥️♥️
