This post is all about diy gifts for boyfriend!
open when letters
Open when letters are such a cute way to make a personalized gift for your boyfriend. Pick as many letters as you like and either type or handwrite them all.
Your boyfriend is going to love opening these over the course of the next few months/year.
open when mason jar
If you don’t want to write a bunch of long letters, you can also do an open when mason jar. For this, you just write little messages on different colored papers depending on the category.
With this, your boyfriend can open one a day until he finishes the jar.
themed gift basket
You can never go wrong by making a cute gift basket. Pick a fun theme with snacks or colors that he loves!
Some examples are:
- cheesy snacks
- ice cream
If you want to make a candy-themed basket, all of these candy puns are super cute!
Just print them out and tape each to the candy!
jar of kisses
For a super easy and low-effort diy gift for your boyfriend, you can make a “jar of kisses.” All you need for this is Hershey Kisses and a mason jar. You can even do a jar of hugs too if you buy hugs!
To make this even cuter, decorate the mason jar!
I love you because…
This gift is similar to the open when letters, but special for a one-year anniversary. Tape all the envelopes onto a poster and put each letter in the corresponding envelope.
A photo cube is such a cool diy gift for boyfriend. You will definitely need to watch a youtube video to figure out how to make this, but it is not too difficult.
All you need are some wooden cubes and photos of the two of you.
If you are short on time (or effort), you can never go wrong with gifting pictures. You can make a cute collage or put them in a frame to make it even better.
Couples jenga is such a cute gift to make that you can both use. Buy a game of Jenga and decorate each of the pieces with different questions you can ask each other.
Then, as you play together, you answer whatever question you pull out from the tower.
If it’s around the holidays, making him some personalized Christmas ornaments would be such a cute Christmas gift.
You can decorate them with his favorite color, his favorite sports team, or pictures of the two of you.
lottery ticket bouquet
This is such a fun gift that doesn’t take too much time to make. Just buy a bunch of lottery tickets and decorate the basket.
homemade couples bucket list
If you don’t have much of a budget for your gift, you can make a bucket list for the two of you. Write out all of the things you want to do together and then decorate it on a cute piece of paper.
If you plan in advance and have enough time to order this, a personalized puzzle is a great diy gift for boyfriend. You can use your favorite photo of the two of you and get it printed on a puzzle.
This is also great because the two of you can spend time working on it together.
sticky note collage
For another low-effort one, make him a sticky note collage. You can write your favorite things about him and your favorite memories together on different sticky notes.
Then, you just have to arrange them in a heart.
spotify photo frame
If you guys have a special song together, this is a perfect gift for him!
These are such cute decorations for an apartment!
This one is definitely more labor-intensive than some others but the end result is super super cute!
There are a bunch of youtube videos about how to make this exploding box. Then, you fill it with cute photos and little memories the two of you have together.
If he likes to read, make him a photo bookmark of the two of you. You can use a couple of your favorite photos you have together.
date night jar
For a diy gift that’s for both of you, make a date night jar.
You can include popsicle sticks for all the different date ideas you can come up with. Then, whenever you can’t decide what to do, you guys have the jar to pick something.
hot cocoa jar
If it’s the wintertime, a hot cocoa jar is the perfect diy gift for him. You can fill it with whatever he loves to put in his hot chocolate to make it extra personalized.
You can really never go wrong with baking him some desserts as his gift!
Like the customized puzzle, you can also make a custom paint-by-numbers. Pick your favorite photo of the two of you and then you get to paint it together.
This one will definitely take some more time to put together, but the final result will be so amazing!
Put together a scrapbook of your entire relationship with your boyfriend. You can include receipts, tickets, photos, stickers, and more!
This is such a cute way to look back at your relationship.
