Jar of hugs and kisses
$12.99 ($3.25 / Count)
$9.99 ($0.43 / Ounce)
For something sweet and little, you can fill a mason jar with Hershey’s hugs and kisses. This is an easy gift that won’t break the bank and can definitely be put together pretty last minute if you ran out of time to get something else.
For the sweet-tooth, make them this super cute candy card poster. Pick their favorite candies and come up with cute puns to make it into a candy story.
There are so many of these all over Pinterest if you need some ideas for candies and puns to use.
open when letters
My favorite DIY gift for any person or any holiday will always be open when letters. These are such sweet and sentimental gifts that really show you care.
All you need to do is write a couple letters to your significant other for them to open at different points in their life. If you need some ideas for letters, I’ve got the perfect article for you to check out!
candy tackle box
If you can’t tell, I love all the food/candy-related DIY college Valentine’s gifts. This candy tackle box is such a cute gift idea, whether your significant other likes to fish or not.
You can decorate the top with cute photos and fill each section with all their favorite candies or snacks!
relationship shadow box
If you are the sentimental type (my favorite kind of person) and keep little mementos from your relationship, you can put together a shadow box for a gift.
Fill it with receipts, tickets, notes, and anything else you have from your relationship that you want to remember.
“you make my heart burst” jar
Another gift like the jar of hugs and kisses is a jar filled with starbursts. On the outside of the jar, you can decorate it with a chalkboard label that says “you make my heart burst.”
You can even do two jars, one with each candy, if you want a little bit more for your gift.
A solid gift that’s perfect for any DIY college Valentine’s gift is some photos. You can make them into a collage, put them in a nice frame, make a scrapbook, or so many other options.
You can basically do anything with photos! They are perfect, especially for last-minute gifts.
date night jar
If you guys struggle to figure out what to do for date nights, making this date night jar is a perfect DIY Valentine’s gift.
These jars are so cute and can be customized to have different categories of dates you two can go on.
A-Z reasons why I love you
For the more crafty ones, you can make an A-Z book of reasons why you love your significant other. This makes for such a cute and sentimental gift.
snacks with valentine’s day puns
There are seriously so many different puns for snacks and candies that are perfect for Valentine’s Day. You can pick all of your significant other’s favorites and tape pieces of paper to the packaging with the puns.
If you want to gift all the snacks and candy without the puns, you could make a care package of all their favorite foods.
This one is especially perfect for college Valentines for people at different schools who need to mail a package.
This might be my all-time favorite DIY college Valentine’s gift. Anyone who likes books would absolutely, hands-down LOVE a book bouquet for Valentine’s Day.
These aren’t too hard to make and will genuinely make a girl smile so big.
flowers in a brown bag
If they aren’t into reading, you can also just gift some flowers. To make them a little more personal, wrap them in a brown paper bag. Just trust me, that will make it 1000% better.
“sorry I’m cheesy” box
For anyone who loves cheesy snacks, this “Sorry I’m cheesy” box is a perfect gift. Fill a box with all their favorite cheese snacks and then decorate the box to make it a little cuter.
