Show your girl you really love her by making a few homemade gifts for your girlfriend. Whatever the occasion, be it her birthday, anniversary or Valentine's Day, homemade gifts will be sure to bring a smile to her face. You don't even have to be particularly crafty to make a homemade gift your girlfriend will love.
- Homemade chocolate. You don't have to make the chocolate yourself, you can use a bar of her favorite or a bag of chocolate chips. The homemade gift part comes in when you melt the chocolate and pour it into molds to make a customized gift just for your girlfriend. Place paper lollipop sticks on one end of the chocolate before it hardens to make lollipops. You can make your own peanut butter cups if your girlfriend loves them by filling small paper wrappers halfway up with melted chocolate, then adding a teaspoon of sweetened peanut butter. Top with melted chocolate and let set.
- Cookie bouquet. If your girlfriend loves baked goods, then give her cookies instead of flowers for her birthday. Prepare sugar cookie dough, the type that you roll out. Roll out and cut with cookie cutters. Use flower shapes or hearts. Bake the cookies, then stick a skewer in one end just after taking them out of the oven. Let them cool, then decorate with colored frosting. Place a piece of floral foam in the bottom of a wide vase. Stick the skewers in the foam for a bouquet.
- Bath salts. She can soak in the tub with salts handmade by you. To make homemade bath salts for your girlfriend, mix a cup of Epsom salts with a tablespoon of baking soda. Add a few drops of her favorite essential oil for scent. You can also add a few drops of food coloring for a burst of color. Stir to mix the oil and dye into the salts, then fill a glass jar with the salts. Top with a lid and tie a pretty ribbon around the lid.
- Picture Frame. Buy a plain wooden frame. Cut strips of fabric to fit the edge of the frame and glue in place. Decorate with glitter, both of your names, sequins or feathers. Make sure you put a picture of the two of you in the frame.
