I like to think I’m pretty good at picking out guy’s gifts, but rather than have you guessing along with me, I’ve had Jared (aka the man himself) put together a list of 12 last minute guys gift ideas for Valentine’s Day just in case you’re still looking for a special something!
“From classic watches, to cool and modern sunglasses, I’ve picked out a few of my favorites that will help ease the stress of guessing on a gift. Plus there are a few everyday staples I always use like a leather camera strap for shooting projects at the studio, or the Jack Black clean and cool set as a nightly routine.” – Jared.

I love that you all went crazy over last year’s DIY wooden polaroid gift set, but there was just one little thing missing for them: a stand. We solved that problem by making these DIY wooden polaroid displays that make for the perfect desk additions or home decor trinkets. Even better, you can make the displays in almost no time flat and DIY along to our second ever video tutorial for them too!
The polaroid portion is the same easy steps as last year, which you can find right here. Once you have your wooden frames ready to go, you’re all set for making the displays…

When I realized how much you all loved my sequin ampersand project, I knew I had to take one for the team and make an even more glamorous version with this DIY sequin marquee heart. Plus I don’t really need that much of a reason to buy a marquee heart in the first place, so the slightest hint of a DIY project on the horizon really sealed the deal for me.
If you’re planning a “Gal”entine’s brunch (or wedding!) anytime soon, you know your name is all over this! In case you’re not a heart gal, you can use this same tutorial for any size or shape marquee light, too. Just promise not to make one for your boyfriend as a Valentine’s gift and then tell him I told you to do it when he drops it like it’s hot….

Not that I’m into deceiving the of the nations or anything, but I figure if we’re going to convince them that Santa is real we might at as go big or go home. Alas, these DIY santa footprints will surely freak them out about the idea of the north pole (especially if your in climates where no snow is in sight).
The good news is eventually they’ll realize so we’re not terrible people after all, and secondly, you can make these footprints in approximately 15 minutes, give or take your perfectionist tendencies…
