On Valentine’s Day, it can feel like there is a lot of pressure to come up with just the right gift.

However, you don’t need to spend a lot to make your love known. Homemade personal gifts are often the ones that communicate our love the best.

You can’t go wrong by making the effort to show and recognise your love on Valentine’s Day, but you could go wrong by just ignoring the day entirely.  And if you choose not to celebrate Valentine's Day, these ideas could work on any day of the year, or even birthdays and anniversaries!

Check out these 20 Valentine’s gift ideas to ease your stress over the holiday and make those you love feel amazing!

1. Engage All Five Senses

Decorate a five drawer set for the holiday and put something to tease each of the five senses in each drawer. Ideas would be perfume, candy, massage oil, lingerie, etc. This gift can also be made for the woman in your life. Use your imagination and watch your Valentine be surprised!

4. For your booklover
