Creative Homemade Birthday Gifts
Back before we were married, I decided to MAKE him a gift for his birthday.
But here’s the thing – I procrastinated (real shocker there lol!)
I needed a CREATIVE homemade birthday gift for my boyfriend that I could make last minute.
I made him this (in the picture below).
It was small, yet quick and EASY.
It was an EASY and last-minute DIY boyfriend gift that *I* thought was a bit “cheesy” but he LOVED it.
It was also the perfect solution because I was pretty broke.
He STILL talks about it.
And well, he’s my husband now so…. there’s that =)
Here’s some more quick and easy gift ideas you can make for your boyfriend or husband (perfect for when you’re down to the last minute and need a creative and thoughtful homemade gift to make him)
Not feeling “crafty”?
DIY Anniversary Gifts For Him
I still really like making romantic and personal gifts for my husband – and he still really likes them.
This year, as an anniversary gift, I printed out screenshots of my favorite text message conversations we’ve had.
Some were really sweet, some were funny (ok, MANY were funny) and all were special memories just between the two of us.
He really loved it – and that made me happy because finding gifts that men really like is challenging – let alone DIY presents.
Why are men so difficult? lol!
(I really think that’s what they say about us ha!)

Perfect for Valentines Day, but they also make GREAT birthday gifts and anniversary gifts, too. These DIY gift ideas are perfect for anytime you’d like to put some extra thought and time into a gift idea that shows him just how much you really care.
What did he love as a child? Did he have a favorite book, a favorite dish or a toy he was crazy about?
What was his favorite type of candy?
Put together a gift basket of all the favorite things he used to love as a child for a truly one-of-a-kind gift.
What does your boyfriend or husband do?
Is he still in college or does he work at a desk job?
If he is working, what kind of work does he do?
You could easily put together a ‘Survival kit’ geared around the job he does and throw in whatever you think he needs or could use more of.
For instance a ‘Chef’s Survival Kit’ could include lots of exotic spices, a set of knives, a fun book on food, great snack foods etc. If he works at a desk job then you could easily put together an office survival kit. This is a great gift idea for a boyfriend takes his jobs seriously.
How about a collage that portrays what a great catch he is?
Just cut out a fishing scene and stick photos of him along with the words ‘What a great catch!’ If you are artistically inclined you could even sketch or paint the entire scene.
Have it framed to create a truly marvelous gift!
If he is the type who loves to write a journal would be an ideal gift for him.
Create a journal based on his interests. For instance if he loves comics or baseball or formula one racing you could easily create a cover in Photoshop and get it printed. You can also print out comics or images of baseball stars, formula one cars, drivers etc. and paste them on one side of the journal on every page.
A personalized journal makes a wonderful gift.
Even if you have never made a scrapbook before, you will find that it is a very easy homemade gift idea for boyfriend or husband! All you need to do is to go to a craft store and pick up the book glue, ribbons, stickers, or any other decoration materials.
You could type up special quotes or phrases that you and your guy tell each other and add them to your scrapbook. Once you get started, you will have so much fun creating this gift for that special guy in your life.
This homemade gift idea can be a lot of fun to make.
You probably already know what his favorite songs are or who his favorite singers are , but if you don’t know, just ask him. Then burn them onto a CD or make a special playlist just for him.
You can also “sneak” in the first song you and he danced to, or the song that reminds you of him.
A fun homemade gift idea for him would be a coupon book. All you have to do is make a list off all the things you know he enjoys such as a back rub, or a night out with the guys and type them up on your computer.
You can get really creative with them and make them look like a coupon you would cut out of the newspaper.
You will be creating amazing memories when you give your husband or boyfriend a homemade gift. These types of gifts never go out of style! It might take a little bit of time but at the end of the day your guy will receive a gift that he’s not likely to have ever gotten before.
So use your imagination – I’m sure you’ll be able to come up with more utterly fantastic gift ideas for your man that he’s sure to deeply treasure!
