I mean, who doesn’t love a thoughtful, cute gift? Yeah right, no one.
I’ve gathered some (DIY) ideas I just loved and think most lovebirds will appreciate A LOT. Most of the ideas below are really easy and fun to make.
1. Make your own ‘I love you’ Emoji pillows.

2. Open when… letters.
What you do is you write short letters to your love for when you’re not able to be there with them. Write the reason for opening a specific letter on the envelope. Example: Open when… you’re sick and you need a reason to smile. You could also include little gifts to go with the letters, such as your love’s favourite tea, some …. or their favourite candy (go as crazy as you like).

3. Make his favorite dish!
Make your lover an awesome breakfast, lunch, brunch, dinner or whatever you like.
You could go for the heart-shaped eggs, for the hart-shaped pizza (tutorial here) or you could make their favourite meal. It’s totally up to you!
4. 12 pre-planned dates.
The idea is that, for the upcoming year, you’ll have a pre-planned date every month. My boyfriend actually gave this to me last year and it was adorable (I told him about the whole idea, but still). You can dress this up HOWEVER you like it. My boyfriend cut out heart-shaped pieces of paper and hid the date-idea underneath every heart. You could also give this to your kids or you friends, who doesn’t love going on a date! This idea is great for couples who want to get out more, now you’ll have to go, no excuses!
Again, you can put in mini gifts with every pre-planned date.
Check this out for a couple of ideas on how to make the pre-planned dates look awesome.
5. Make love coupons.
This idea is similar to the pre-planned dates. The biggest difference is that you lover can choose when to use a coupon. Choosing when you get a back massage or a breakfast in bed is kind off awesome.
Here is a FREE printable love coupon book.
6. 52 things I love about you.
You write 52 things you love about this person on playing cards and then bind them together. Maxime did this for our grandparents last year and it was a huge success!

7. Give them a ticket.
Make these cute DIY tickets and give them a ticket. Whether this is for a game of their favourite sports game, for a museum or to go to the movies, they will love it. You can choose to go with them or let this be a guy or girls night out. Enjoy!
8. Do SOMETHING with pictures.
Looking at fun moments together with your lover is one of the best things to do. Using pictures is a great way to show you lover how much you appreciate them. Check here for 35 awesome ideas.
9. Make a candy bouquet!
I love this idea because I don’t really like flowers, but a CANDY bouquet, hmmm, that’s the best idea ever!
Check out how you can make this here.
10. In case of emergency break glass…
Last but not least, put your love’s favourite candy in a glass kit and write ‘In case of emergency break glass’ on the front. I love how cute this looks and how delicious the candy will taste 😉
Check out the tutorial here.
