Consider cute homemade gift ideas for your boyfriend. Homemade items are inexpensive and mean more because of the time you spent making them. Spend a little time at your local arts and craft store to gather supplies to create a gift your boyfriend can cherish for a lifetime. Or, use items you have at home to create a gift he'll enjoy.


Chronicle memories by creating a scrapbook that displays your relationship's journey. Include such items as photographs taken at events and during dates, as well as movie ticket stubs, holiday cards, love notes, poems and dried flowers. Plan a theme for each scrapbook page, such as "Love Letters," "Our First Date," "A Kiss to Remember" and "College Life." Decorate the pages with stickers, stencils and your favourite phrases. This homemade gift idea requires a scrapbook kit, glue, tape, embellishments, stamps, coloured paper, pens, scissors and a paper trimmer.

Greeting Card

Express your feelings freely through your own words and images. Make a simple, cute homemade card for his birthday, your anniversary, Valentine's Day or just to express your love. Add hearts, photographs of the two of you together, stickers and stamps. Craft the card to fit his interests--use his favourite sports team's colours or include a quote from one of his favourite movies or song. Write a heartfelt message inside your homemade greeting card.


Compile 12 of your favourite photographs of you and your boyfriend. Create a homemade calendar with your photos. Print each picture and a calendar for each month on photo-quality paper. Computer programs--such as Microsoft Word, Microsoft Works, Open Office and iPhoto--often have calendar templates that are ideal for this project.

Include special dates on the calendar, such as your first date, the first time you said "I love you," your first vacation together, birthdays and holidays. Use cardstock to create a front and back cover for your calendar. Decorate the cover with photos, stickers, stencils and stamps. Give your gift a creative title, such as "Twelve Months of Love" or "The Seasons of Our Love." Print the calendar pages and photos so the calendar for February has the picture for the month of March on the back of it. Do this for each month. Use a three-hole punch to make holes in each sheet. Bind the calendar with ribbon, yarn or twine.

Keepsake Box

Cover an old shoebox with construction paper, newspaper or magazine clippings to create a keepsake box for your boyfriend. Decorate this homemade gift with glitter pens, markers, stickers, photographs and relationship memorabilia. Place a love letter, ticket stubs and restaurant menus from previous dates inside the box. Add a custom-made CD with your favourite love songs.
