20 Homemade Birthday Gifts for Husband

Craft these creative, homemade gifts to make your husband feel special on his birthday!

Updated August 10, 2018
20 Homemade Birthday Gifts for Husband

Whether your husband's birthday is coming up or you're planning several months ahead, you should go the extra mile for him this year by creating a homemade birthday gift!

People often think that store-bought presents are more valuable than a handmade gift because of the price. You could get your husband that expensive fishing rod that he's been wanting for a while. Or you could get him overpriced designer slacks.

Although these gifts are nice, nothing can compare to a homemade present! Made with your own hands, a DIY birthday gift will show all your love and affection towards your husband. Unlike a store-bought gift, you can personalize your present by relating it to an inside a joke, a fond memory, or a personal detail that only you know. You know your husband better than anyone else (especially better than a store), so you know what will make him smile with joy. Homemade birthday gifts are also great because it will demonstrate the time and effort you've placed into his gift. While you can mindlessly pick up anything at a store, your handmade birthday gift for him shows more thought and sentiment behind it.

If your husband is a loving man who goes above and beyond for you and your children, then it is your time to return the favor this year. There is no better gift than a craft made from love. Not even an expensive gift can beat a homemade one. So, if you've decided to try to craft a gift, then check out this collection of handmade birthday gifts below. No matter what you choose to craft, your husband will absolutely love all of them, and he will feel like the happiest man in the world.
