Who wouldn't love to receive some homemade chocolate covered strawberries on Valentine's Day? If you can melt chocolate in a double boiler, you can make these for your valentine. Pair them with some love notes, and you have a perfect, inexpensive, homemade Valentine's Day gift.
Homemade Bath Salts
A Valentine's Gift for Your Favorite Sweetheart
If your valentine loves to soak in a hot bath, these bath salts are a quick and easy homemade gift. All you need to prepare valentine bath salts are sea salt (or regular table salt), Epsom salt, red food coloring, and some essential oils of your choosing. Place the salts in a pretty decorative jar and you have a great gift. Ylang Ylang is a well-known essential oil for seduction and attraction.
You can expand on the idea of Valentine bath salts, by making an entire homemade gift basket for the bath. Some great ideas to put into your valentines gift basket are homemade crocheted wash clothes, fizzing bath bomb rose petals, dried herbs for the bath, or homemade massage oils.

A make ahead cookie mix recipes make great gifts for everyone on your Valentine list. Give them to friends, coworkers and teachers as a special valentine treat. This recipe with red m&m's and decorated with valentine décor works great for quick and easy homemade valentines.
Jar of Cookies
Maybe you prefer to fill the jar with homemade cookies already baked and ready for your Valentine to eat. Add a personal note for your Valentine by adding words of love such as, "sweetest," "be mine," and "valentine."
Giant Heart Cookie
Another cookie idea as a Valentine's day gift is to bake a large cookie. I use a heart shaped cake pan and spread out the cookie dough in the bottom of the pan. Be sure to use non-stick cooking spray or a non-stick pan, so the cookie will come out easily. After the extra large heart cookie is baked, use icing to write a special message to your valentine.
An Herbal Bath as a Valentine's Day Gift
Herbs for Your Valentine
Pamper the nature lover with Valentine's gifts made from herbs. Herbs have long been treasured for their positive benefits to the skin.
Place some herbs in cheesecloth and tie them up with a pretty valentine ribbon for an herbal bath your valentine will treasure, or tie up several of these and make an herbal bath basket for your valentine.

You can decorate a small glass jar, or several of them, to fill with small candies, or any other object that says, "I love you for Valentine's day." It is a quick and inexpensive gift that shows a lot of thought and adds a homemade flair.
