Men in general would want gifts that are useful or fun. Or, at least something he can eat. Guys would not usually appreciate cutesy, girly romantic stuff, like that colorful heart plaque you found on Pinterest. The reason I said that is sometimes ladies find a project “too cute” or “really sweet” and think the guys will like it. When giving gifts for men, cute should not be your operative term, but more on “useful”, “fun”, “sexy”, “manly”. Get the gist? This rings especially true with DIY Valentines gifts for men. (You can find out more about this reasoning here.)
Well, onto the DIY presents. Here they are, your five DIY Valentines Day gifts for men.
1. Heart-Eating Dinosaur
So nerdy, so fun! If your guy is on the geeky type, he will appreciate this heart-eating golden dinosaur. With its tiny hands a pile of hearts and one being chewed, Rawr! You can also glue the dinosaur to a stone coaster and spray paint it gold too, to turn the statue into a paperweight. See all the instructions at Lovely Indeed! I can see myself using this on my home office, as a paperweight and a fun statue to look at.
2. Pie In a Jar
Delicious. Men love to eat and this is one edible heart he could not resist. The heart crust is a perfect reminder of the labor of love you put into making his delicious pies in jars (you are making more than one, right?) and he can take a jar to the office for him to enjoy at work. Green Wedding Shoes shows you how to bake these delish V-day treats.
3. Pixel Heart Necklace
A really geeky heart jewellery for a geeky man! I am a guy who someone who grew up playing NES and this reminds me of my favorite childhood games. I would not mind wearing this super stylish paper necklace. How to make this super nice nerd necklace? How About Orange will show you how.
4. DIY Sexy Love Coupons
Ah! Love coupons! Could be the most classic gift men receive on Valentine’s day! Why not personalize it a bit by adding your personal touch to the printouts offered at Life of Beth?
