Our favourite Valentine's Day crafts to make for your special someone (1)

There's no better way to show your affection for the special person in your life than with a hand-made gift, and this Valentine's Day, Prima has selected some of the best.

From homemade Valentine's cards to sentimental keepsakes and handmade chocolates they'll cherish, we have plenty of ideas for a creative gift for your partner no matter what your crafting level.

Showing someone you care doesn't have to mean spending a fortune on expensive gifts. When it comes to celebrating Valentine's Day, the time and effort you put into expressing love can be priceless – and there are so many easy craft projects which allow you do to that.

Reminding them of special moments by making a scrapbook or photo box is inexpensive but rich in memories. Creating a token to help them with one of their hobbies, such as reading, shows you appreciate them for who they are. And making homemade chocolate truffles is going to be much more delicious than a shop-bought gift box.

This Valentine's Day, take the time to make your loved one a gift straight from the heart with little touches that have a special significance to the two of you. For example, your Valentine’s Day craft may feature their favourite colour, reference an in-joke or have a secret message hidden in it. After all, if you can’t be mushy and sentimental on Valentine’s Day, when can you?
Creating a DIY Valentine’s gift is easier than you think. Browse our ideas and click through to our simple step-by-step guides to make your perfect present.
