Day 7 of 14: DIY Valentine’s Gifts for your Sweetheart finds our writers discussing great Home Depot products or projects for gift ideas. In today’s edition, Ayana reminds Thomas that do-it-yourself gifts are extra thoughtful, but shiny stuff is good, too.
Thomas: A lot of guys are tired of getting their wives and girlfriends the same type Valentine’s Day gifts every year. The same old dozen roses, boxes of candy and teddy bears just seem boring. And what if a fellow gave his sweetie a necklace and earrings for Christmas? More jewelry just seems unimaginative.
Ayana: There’s nothing at all wrong with a dozen roses and some candy or a teddy bear. Trust me, we love that kind of thing. And don’t EVER hesitate to give your girl something shiny. But I understand what you’re saying, and anyone in that situation is definitely due for a Valentine’s gift makeover. All it takes is a bit of do-it-yourself creativity.
Thomas: DIY is good, but don’t assume that all guys are real handy with tools. I hope whatever you have in mind isn’t too complex.
