Valentine鈥檚 Day is only a few short weeks away, and we like to think that as the holiday rolls around we鈥檒l be well-prepared with some awesome DIY gifts and sweet treats for our loved ones. But what鈥檚 the point of going through the trouble if you鈥檙e going to give your honey their present in a plain ol鈥 Russell Stover box? No no, you are much too design savvy for that sort of thing. Don鈥檛 worry, we鈥檙e not asking you to go out of your way with handmade truffles. Instead, just swap out the boring chocolate or gift box for one of these babies and your valentine will be seriously impressed. Here are 15 ways to dress up and DIY some stunning V-Day gift boxes.

1. Sequined Hearts: We love this DIY because it鈥檚 so simple: Just take your classic drugstore chocolate box and cover it with bright pink sequins! The little bit of extra effort makes all the difference. (via Freutcake)

2. XOXO: No, this isn鈥檛 a game of tic-tac-toe鈥 though now that we mention it, that鈥檚 a great idea for some other fun wrapping paper. In the meantime, these red hugs and kisses will have to do the trick. (via Sugar and Cloth)

3. Be Mine: You鈥檝e probably outgrown those chalky conversation hearts, but that doesn鈥檛 mean you have to give up on the Valentine鈥檚 Day tradition entirely. This box fits the bill and it鈥檚 great for stuffing with all sorts of delicious candy. (via The House That Lars Built)

4. A Sweet Treat: These adorable boxes are the perfect container for cookies, cupcakes and other sweet treats. A soft coating of tissue paper inside should protect your precious cargo until it reaches its destination: your friends鈥 bellies. (via The Tom Kat Studio)

5. Heart Wrapping Paper: Put some heart into your wrapping paper this V-Day. With two different (and equally awesome) designs, these beautifully wrapped boxes will show just how strong your love is. (via The House That Lars Built)

6. Fire Cracker: Fill these faux dynamite sticks with plenty of glitter and confetti, or swap in pink and red candies for a sweet surprise. (via Sugar and Cloth)

7. Glitter Hearts: These mini boxes are just the right size for filling with a few chocolate kisses or some candy hearts. Have your child give these out at school and they鈥檒l be the most-loved student all year. (via The House That Lars Built)

8. Geometric Hearts: Geometric and brightly colored? Your hip valentine will for sure heart these. (via Mini-Eco)

9. Heart Tote: If you鈥檝e got a gift that simply won鈥檛 fit in a box, or you want a cute way to carry over some bottles of wine, this heart tote is your answer. And if you鈥檙e planning some outdoor festivities, might we say it鈥檚 the perfect romantic picnic bag? (via V and Co)

10. Bonbon Boxes: Can you think of a better way to store and give candy? We didn鈥檛 think so. (via Eat Drink Chic)

11. Don鈥檛 Toss That Box: Save your candy boxes when the chocolate鈥檚 all gone, then deck 鈥檈m out with all the glam accessories you can find. The final result will be a unique box you can use to store anything from crafting tools to sewing goodies and so much more. (via Brit + Co)

12. Chocolate Box Makeover: Another option for those big leftover hearts? Practice your calligraphy skills and design some one-of-a-kind present parcels for next year. (via Studio DIY)

13. Heart Attack: If candy and sweets aren鈥檛 options for your gift-giving extravaganza, perhaps this surprise will do the trick. After all, it鈥檚 hard not to love a giant box of pink heart confetti. (via The House That Lars Built)

14. Tag It: When your perfect gift box is all wrapped up and ready to go, finish it off with a sweet, vintage-inspired letter tag. The personalized touch will also help you keep track of all your gifts. (via Martiz Alisa)

15. Pi帽ata: Be careful the recipient of this gift doesn鈥檛 smash it open. Unless the inside is full of candy and goodies, of course. (via The House That Lars Built)
