7 DIY Gifts For Your Boyfriend

Updated: Jun 16, 2021

Are you looking for the perfect gift for your boyfriend while on a budget? The best gift would be one made out of love; one made from your own hands. Here are a few suggestions:

1. Card

This is the simplest thing you can make for your boyfriend. Fold a card in two, add a bit of decorations on the front, write something heartfelt inside, and voila you're done!

2. Letter

Letters are a means to get your emotions out even if you, like a potato, are bad at expressing them (potato is me). I personally love this kind of gift because it feels much closer to the heart. Honestly though...if someone ever gave me these "open when" letters I would open them all on the same day!

3. Scrapbook

Making scrapbooks is fun as heck!!!! There are so many elements that go into it, with so many layers, colors, and even puzzles. It's just a fun book to put together.

If you're planning on making one, you will find this post super useful:

4. Decorated mason jar

I haven't still attempted this because of the lack of clear mason jars at home. All I have are those MD jam jars (you Sri Lankan's know what I'm talking about) that have embossed writing all over. Anyways, this is a really cute gift to give.

So here's the perfect mason jar for a super affordable price on Amazon:

5. Explosion box

Explosion boxes, like scrap books, are fun as heck! I'm sure your boyfriend would have a good time discovering the full extent of the stuff in it.

If you're not that good at making them, you can simply purchase this explosion box base and decorate it however you want:

6. Accessory

I'm sure we've all been through that DIY bracelet phase, lol. You can make this yourself, which will be a super fun activity to indulge in, or you can purchase one on Amazon:

7. Baked goodies

Guys LOVE it when you cook/bake for them. I recently tried making a batch of cookies (without an oven, I must say!) and they came out great. I will be sharing my simple butter cookie recipe in a future post, so stay tuned!
