D.I.Y. Gifts for Husbands
Looking for DIY gift ideas for your husband? Read on. We’ve collated a few cool ideas that should make for “forever keeps”.
Our first suggestion for the perfect gift for husbands is a ‘memory jar’. Collect a few coloured papers, coloured pens, a pencil, a pair of scissors and a mason jar. Write down your favourite memories from the time you were dating, when you got married, your honeymoon, your first baby or any other special moments. Remember each memory should be on a separate chit of paper. Fill up the entire jar with chits or match the number of chits to his age, the number of years you have been married or any number that signifies the special day you have planned for him. To add a dash of fun, you can even rank the chits based on your favourites, this small gesture makes for excellent bonding time.
For those of you who live away from your better halves owing to working in different cities, take heart there are heart warming gestures that you can make too. Take a cue from ‘P.S. I Love You’ the most romantic movie of the 2000’s. Write a series of future dated letters to your husband. Put the letters in “Open When” envelopes. If your husband plays fair, he will open the letters only on the occassions you have spelled out on the enevelope. All you need is paper, a pen and a few envelopes. If you fancy this idea but actually live with your husband, then turn this into a treasure hunt. Let your husband discover a letter each time he completes a milestone or a task.
If your husband is into old Hindi music, Saregama’s customized USB based music cards make for the perfect gift too. Although this gift doesn’t require as much creativity, it’s equally special. All you have to do is go to the music cards section on saregama.com, select ‘Customize music card’ and then add 200 of your husband’s favourite songs onto it. Take your pick of songs from the best of legends like Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd. Rafi, Kishore Kumar R.D.Burman, Jagjit Singh and many others. You can also personalize the cover of the music card by uploading a photo of your husband. That’s it. Once you make payment, the card will be shipped to you/your husband.
We hope we have been able to inspire you. We are certainly going to use some of these ideas for our better halves too.
