Looking for a way to surprise the love of your life with a special gift? And you've used up every possible gift idea including clothes, sports equipment, perfume, wallet, et cetera et cetera? A trip to several stores has confirmed that there is nothing available worth giving him. Trust me when I say that nothing says you are special better than a gift that is handmade by you. They add that personal touch and show that you really care enough to make efforts for him. Full of sentimental value, romantic crafts make for very unique gift ideas. Take a look at some options to say it all with the perfect gift as you let your creativity unfold.
Our Book of Love
A scrapbook is the first option that comes to my mind and one that is sure to work! It is a compilation of your memories together as a couple. In a book, paste photographs of your unforgettable moments, add jokes and incidents, write about some special memories, stick movie or concert tickets, bills from your dates, write the lyrics of a song that is important to you'll and everything that holds a special place. Put a picture of you two on the cover of the book.
Paint My Love
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well so could be a painting! And the perfect touch of creativity to a painting would be to combine it with decoupage. Select a picture that you would like to gift your sweetheart. For example, you could choose to paint a vase with pretty flowers in it. It's a better idea than giving him flowers, right? Now using watercolors paint a basic vase with some of his favorite flowers. Then cut out pictures of leaves and bits of abstract designs.
Next, decoupage the leaves to the stems of the flowers and the abstract designs to decorate the vase. Use decoupage glue to stick the designs and add a layer of it after pasting as well, to make sure the pieces stick properly. He will definitely be impressed with your skills.
Messages In a Bottle
This idea is unique and ranks very high on the romantic meter. Use red-colored craft paper and cut it into several small, heart-shaped pieces. Now, with colorful pens, write sweet words like love, faith, forever, you n me, and even dates that are important to you as a couple, on the little hearts and fill the bottle with these. On a handmade paper, write down the lyrics of a love song or a poem that you really like and tie it into a roll. Secure the roll with a ribbon and put it into the bottle.
Seasons of Love
Here is another idea for a gift that will prove to be useful to your beloved for an entire year and one that he will cherish for years to come even after that. Go online and print a calendar for the twelve months of the following year. Next, it is time to customize this calendar. You can add pictures of him and his friends along with pictures of you both. Don't forget to give interesting captions to these pictures.
Now, make the calendar exclusive by highlighting the dates that are important to you'll, birthdays of his close ones, and other important occasions. This gift works perfectly well for you too, as he will no longer have an excuse to forget your anniversary!
King of My Heart
Want to tell your boyfriend that he is the king of your heart? Then this gift is a great idea. Buy a pack of cards from a local store. Next, take a large sheet of white paper and cut it into 52 pieces, so that you can stick each piece onto the center of every card. Now, using colorful pens write on each card a reason why you love him so much. There may be several reasons but make sure these 52 are the most special ones!
Letters of My Love
A love letter is a traditional and extremely romantic gift in today's tech-savvy times. With a little craft-work you can make this gift even more special. Take a large sheet of thick, white paper. Next, buy around ten small envelopes that are colorful and have cute prints on them. If you have a flair for craft, you can even make the envelopes at home. Then stick these envelopes onto the white sheet in the shape of a heart.
Now, write ten love letters telling your sweetheart everything you've always wanted to say to him and put a letter in each envelope. Trust me, he will be smitten!
Puzzle of My Heart
Does your boyfriend enjoy a little bit of challenge? Then this would make for a very fun gift idea. Get a sheet of thick, red paper. On this, write a quote that you would like to dedicate to him or draw a picture that is special to the bond you both share. Now, with a pencil lightly trace a design of the pieces of a puzzle on this sheet and finely cut along the lines. There! You have your very own love puzzle. Gift this to him and watch his face lighten up as he puts the pieces together.
Use these craft gift ideas to pamper him silly! A gift that cannot be bought in any store and one that is specially made for him is the best way to tell your boyfriend that you love him and how much he means to you.
