Last Minute Valentine's Day Gift Ideas for Your DIY-er

Valentine's Day is tomorrow! Have you gotten your loved one a gift yet?  Yes, a dinner date with flowers and a romantic movie is definitely a cute idea and I don't know anyone who wouldn't love that, but are you looking to give your lover something more?  If so, I've got you covered!  Here are some of my Valentine's Day gift ideas for the DIY-er in your life!

I will be providing links to each of these items, but because these are last minute gift ideas they can actually be found at your local hardware store, department store, or book store.  Remember that these are only ideas and guides.  Similar items of any brand would make awesome gifts.

1. Kobalt 7-1/4-in Sliding Compound Miter Saw:  I recently bought this same miter saw from Lowes.       It's awesome.  Yes, it is a small miter saw, but I didn't see myself needing anything larger than a sliding 7 1/4 inch saw.  I have used my saw to help build a 'Rustic X Console Table' following plans provided on Ana White's website.  This baby did great and my cuts were precise right out of the box!

2. Diptyque Baies Candle-6.5 oz.: I consider Diptyque candles to be luxury candles.  I've smelled them in department stores every time I walk by the counter, but have never had the guts to get myself to spend that much money on 1 candle.  This is a great gift, especially if your friend/lover wouldn't normally splurge on a candle like this!

After reading the online reviews, I have ordered the 3 of these coffee table books for my own home.  Looking at the colors on the covers and virtually flipping through the insides of the books through Amazon's website, these books seem to have great pictures with vivid colors.  The colors of the book covers are also so cute!  I think they would look great as a stack on anyone's coffee table.
3.Elements of Style: Designing a Home & a Life
4. The Perfectly Imperfect Home: How to Decorate and Live Well
5. Domino: The Book of Decorating: A Room-by-Room Guide to Creating a Home That Makes You Happy

6. X-mini WE micro portable NFC Bluetooth capsule speaker, Turquoise, XAM17-GM-TR:  My contractor once told me that his best tool on any job was his radio.  After working on a few DIY projects myself, I have found that the TV is my best friend.  When I'm working in the garage and the TV is not an option, playing Pandora on my phone keeps me entertained.  Having a small capsule speaker would definitely help project all that awesome music playing from your phone.

7. Kindle, 6" Glare-Free Touchscreen Display, Wi-Fi - Includes Special Offers:  I frequently use my own kindle to read when I want to relax or wind down for the night.  This would be the perfect gift for the person in your life who loves to read!

I hope my little gift guide has given you some great ideas about what to give your special someone.  Remember, this is only a guide and only you know your lover/loved one best!  Have a wonderful weekend and remember to celebrate love everyday!
