So, gift your crush handmade goodness of skincare products. You can make a Multani mitti face pack, some DIY rosewater, and coffee sugar scrub. This makes a perfect combination of goodness and will provide your crush with healthy glowing skin. Whenever your crush will use these products, she/he will miss you.
12. Mini Garden
The entire world is suffering from global warming and having some plants or mini gardens inside is beneficial for mental and physical health. If you can go to your crush's house and create a mini garden for them, it would be one of the best gifts she or he could have. But if you can't go home yet, you can create a mini garden in-tray by yourself. Some plants which don't require much care are snake plant, spider plant, aloe vera, cactus, and any other type of succulents.
I know you can buy jewelry online but making the jewelry with your own hands hits entirely differently. Everyone buys jewelry online as a gift but you can do something different. Take something they are truly connected to like a flower, or keychain, or ring, and turn it into a beautiful necklace. Take some beads which have letters on them and create a bracelet out of them. Even though it won't match the level of statement jewelry but your efforts will surely steal the show.
14. Art Pieces
Okay, everything can go wrong while gifting but art pieces will never go wrong. DIY lanterns, coasters, glass paintings, wall hangings, greeting cards, scrapbooks, explosion box, and pen stands. There are numerous videos and tutorials on YouTube that will help you make easy yet beautiful and eye-pleasing things. You can also customize the art pieces by adding inside jokes, personal messages, your crush's name, and photos. This way they would love the efforts that you have put, can keep the gift always in their home, and remember you whenever they see it.
15. Glitter Mugs
Giving mugs which have written the world's best crush or have a photo of them, urghhh to cliché. Let's move to something innovative in the mugs section. The mug is one product that is highly used but undervalued. So, to keep up with the traditions of gifting mugs, decorate them with glitter to add some shimmer and jazz. You can decorate it the way you like. Geometric patterns, initials of the crush's name, patterns, heart, stars, moon, and galaxy, everything is possible just with a little glitter.
16. Love Coupons
Okay, so this is something new and fun in the segment of DIY gifts. You know how stores give you coupons and you can redeem them whenever you feel like before the expiry date. Yes, the same thing but with a love twist. Love coupons allow your crush to get things mentioned in them according to their wish. For example: create a jar that has a hug coupon, a cuddle coupon, a kiss coupon, a treat coupon, a love-making coupon, a massage coupon, and a date coupon. Give that jar to your crush and mention to him/her the expiry date of these coupons. Now, your crush can redeem these coupons when they wish to like. This DIY gift creates a thrill and ignites a different spark between the couples.
17. Music Playlist
For millennials, music is a very personal thing. If someone shares a song or suggests you some songs it is considered a sign of affection. So even you can create a playlist for them according to their moods or their favorite song and gift it to them. I know it is not an over-the-top gift but sometimes small gestures have much more impact than grand ones.
18. Bath Salts
So, bath salts are something that you can add to the bathtub when you want to have a luxurious and relaxing bath. Making bath salts is not a difficult thing. It requires only two to three ingredients and you are good to go. Adding bath salt to water has some medical benefits like relaxing the sore muscles and curing cough due to the presence of essential oils. You can create a combo of scented candles and bath salts to magnify the effect of your gift.
GOOD LUCK! :)
