In some circles, Valentine's Day has a reputation for being a commercial or "Hallmark" holiday. But this February 14, you can prove the naysayers wrong by making your own heartfelt DIY Valentine's Day gifts! The sweet homemade present ideas we've compiled here infuse meaning and love into the entire genre of Valentine's Day crafts, and they work perfectly for both skilled crafters and beginners.

Anyone would love to receive a keychain printed with a photo of their favorite person. There are also plenty of delightfully punny options on our list, like a bottle of hot sauce with a custom label reading "Hot Stuff." It'll certainly make them smile—just like the time Ree Drummond bought Ladd 200 tins of his favorite Carmex lip balm!
