Easy DIY Valentine’s Day Gifts for Your Guy from Pinterest

Valentine's Day Gift Ideas for Him DIY BouquetsCan’t think of a great gift for your guy this Valentine’s Day? Make your own with the help of these crafty DIY bouquets we found from, where else, Pinterest!

Roses, chocolates, jewelry—there’s an endless supply of Valentine’s Day gift ideas for her out there. But when it comes to the main man in your life, flowers and heart-shaped diamonds probably aren’t at the top of his wish list.

Thankfully, there’s some pretty crafty—and creative—gift ideas for him that you can find, and no source is more popular these days than the pinning phenomenon that is Pinterest.

Rather than settling for a gift that’ll leave him less than enthused, resort to a thoughtful gift that you can make yourself that he’s sure to love.

In the spirit of all the flowers that will be delivered this week, we limited our easy DIY gifts for him to bouquets of some of his favorite things. Here’s four of our picks from Pinterest:

Candy Bar Bouquet: Does your guy have a sweet tooth? Indulge him in all his favorite candy bars or other sugary treats with this perfectly festive presentation. This pin from Buzzfeed doesn’t overlook details like using rose cupcake wrappers to give it an authentic bouquet look.

Bacon Rose Bouquet: If the way to your man’s heart is through his stomach, then perhaps this is the way to go. In just four easier-than-you-think steps illustrated in this pin from our own Magazines.com blog, you can create a delicious and manly Valentine’s Day bouquet.

Minis Bouquet: Give your main squeeze a dozen (or more) mixers for his favorite cocktail with this drinkable bouquet. This idea from MBDesire is highly customizable, which means you can demonstrate how well you know your man and what he loves.

Themed Bouquet: Go for a themed presentation if you really want to flex your creativity. This “You Comfort Me” bouquet via Trusper combines comfy socks, undies, and Southern Comfort minis, for example. Again, personalize away to show you’re well aware of all his favorite treats and things.
