5. Date Night Calendar
We did this gift for Valentines Day this past year and we both LOVED it. It’s an upgraded take on the one from last year. We completed a calendar with one date for every month. Check out the photos below.
We designed the months to be a bit of a memory game where we had to remember which month these fun things happen in to find our date.
Then under each month was a specific date that we had to carve out time for in one of our date nights! We’ve also made this one easier and FREE with this printable. Download, complete, and enjoy!
6. Clay Key Chains
This one miiiight be our fav. And we definitely went over board and made them for our friends and family. (If you’re reading this, still act surprised!)
We bought polymer, bake-able clay from the craft store, rolled it, cut it, made a tiny hole, then marked with initials. Then baked it for around 15 minutes. We then added jump rings and key chain rings and it’s good to go! Beautiful, inexpensive, and so much fun to make!
7. Custom Ornaments
This has become a yearly tradition around our house. Any big life milestone gets a new ornament. Simply find pain ornaments in the colour of your choice, grab a paint pen or gel pen, and write away. Feel free to practice ahead of time if you have a specific design in mind!
There you have it. Our Top 7 Easy (and mostly inexpensive!) DIY Gifts For Couples! Which one is your fav?
