Homemade candles

There’s nothing quite as cozy as the smell of a candle—especially when it’s homemade! We love this super simple tutorial on Oprah Magazine.

The main necessities are wax, fragrance and coloring, wicks, a thermometer, a wooden stirring stick, pour pot, saucepan, and any heat-proof container you’d like to hold the candle. Finding the perfect container for each Valentine is where you really get to be creative. Brightly colored ceramic jars and mason jars are some of our favorites.

This is one of our favorite crafty Valentine’s Day gift ideas. Who doesn’t love a good houseplant?! Terrariums are amazing because they’re so unique, easy to maintain, fun to create, and they provide the perfect finishing touch to anyone’s space.

This DIY terrarium is so easy and it’s an awesome way to get creative for your favorite people. You’ll need stones, activated charcoal, potting soil, pebbles, small gardening tools, plants (of course), and a glass vessel.

Any glass vessel will work, but we’re big fans of anything uniquely shaped—like those little geometric beauties!

And as for your plants, cacti, succulents and air plants work really well because they’re small and thrive in humidity.

Handmade soap

Handmade soap is such a thoughtful addition to any home. It can be a little tricky, but when you work in small batches and follow tried and true recipes, the outcome will be so sweet!

Lovely Greens shares three easy, beginner recipes that we love. But the best thing about it is how creative you can really get. Add in your favorite essential oils and dried flower petals or herbs to create a personalized masterpiece for your Valentine!

Marble-dipped mugs

We are all about these stunning marble-dipped mugs! They make the perfect crafty Valentine’s Day gift for your favorite people. All you need is a mug, nail polish, and old container you don’t mind ruining, a bamboo skewer or toothpick, and paper towels or parchment paper.

Partially fill your container with warm water, pour a few drops of the nail polish of your choice (try using two different colors for more dimension), swirl with the skewer, and dip your mug! Let it dry on a paper towel, and voila! Your Valentines will love these gifts just as much as we do.
