Best Homemade Birthday Gift Ideas for Your Guy

Men’s accessories and fashion are often more expensive than your own – and perhaps you already bought him everything that you could possibly afford without going into the cheesy route. But now that his birthday is fast approaching, what better gift to give than something you personally made. With that in mind, we listed down some of the unique homemade gift ideas that will surely sweep your guy off his feet.

  1. Love Coupons

Perhaps one of the most cost-effective and creative homemade birthday gift you could give your beau are love coupons. These slips can range from a simple “hug voucher” to a “whatever you want coupon” applicable for a certain period of time. All that you need for this gift idea is a stack of cardboards, colourful pens, scissors and some sense of humour.

  1. Candy Jars

Got a guy who loves sweets? Then this homemade gift idea is perfect for you. The jar doesn’t necessarily have to only contain candies. You can actually fill it with any treat that your boyfriend loves. But some extra Hershey Kisses chocolate could be a nice incentive, especially if he’s currently away from home. Every Kisses can represent your own sweet kisses until you see each other again.

  1. Mix Tapes

Mix tapes are considered as one of the oldest gifts around, but it’s also touted as one of the most sentimental. Simply compile all your favourite songs together using a stop-and-record method. Also, don’t forget to provide a cassette player if your guy doesn’t have one. Trust us, he might see you as a dork for the gift, but he’ll also find you adorable for doing it.

  1. Cool Cufflinks

Every man should have a pair of cufflinks that best represents his personality and sense of style. You can reuse an old cufflink from your grandfather’s closet or from an antique store, and replace its main decoration with something that best suits your guy’s personality. Just be extra careful in using a glue-gun as it can easily burn your fingers.

  1. Birthday Cake

What better way to celebrate his day than with a homemade birthday cake? Purchasing a cake can be quite expensive, and it’ll certainly take the uniqueness out of your creation. Just remember to read the baking instructions careful, get all the right supplies ready and create something that your man will, without a doubt, fall in love with.

Coming up with a personalized birthday gift idea might take some extra time and planning, but it’s all worth it in the end. Remember that as long as you made it with love, and you have a guy who’s not only interest in designer labels, he’ll see you as the best girlfriend ever for another whole year.
