    Valentine's Day has arrived, prompting us all to think about special ways to celebrate our special someone. Before you settle for a cliché, store-bought token of your affection, you may want to consider something a bit more personal. Nothing says, "I love you" like a DIY gift made with your own two hands. Best of all, your homemade Valentine's Day gift doesn't have to be overly complicated. This February 14th, ditch the heart-shaped box of chocolates and wilted flowers and make your love something he/she will treasure always.

    For The Bath Lover - If your beloved loves baths, you can quickly and easily put together some DIY bath accessories, using just a few simple ingredients.

Fill with a favorite candy and you've officially DIY'd yourself a winning gift.
