Valentine's Day Gifts For Your DIY'er

Could it be that the DIY'er/gardener you love so much might prefer something handy and practical this Valentine's Day? Afraid he/she'll be mad because you chose functionality over sentimentality? Never fear! Your gift can be practical and romantic. You see, the secret is all in the presentation.
 
Consider putting together a gift basket of DIY-type goodies, all wrapped up in colorful paper or cellophane, and topped with a red ribbon. The basket should contain some sort of mouth-watering Valentine's-themed candy, just for the sake of tradition. As for the rest of the contents, let your sweetheart's interests be your guide. For a gardener, how about seeds, a new pair of secateurs (pruning scissors), or new gardening gloves? For a handyman/woman, how about a hardware store gift card, a screwdriver or a new tool belt?
 
Selected your gifts? Now comes the fun part: making it look all nice and pretty. The gift basket is always a great choice. Here are some tips on how to assemble a Valentine's Day gift basket for a gardener, for example. However, if this gift is for a real manly man-DIY'er, baskets and cellophane aren't such a good choice. How about using a metal canister, like the one pictured above? Looks a little more manly, a little less frou-frou.
