DIY Holiday Gifting?
When it comes to the holidays, buying gifts can be overwhelming and expensive. Fortunately, it isn't the only option! If you have some extra time and talent, do-it-yourself gifts are a wonderful way to make your friends and family feel cherished.
Thankfully, you don't have to be a pro-level crafter to make someone a nice gift! Here are some great ideas for homemade gifts to help you get started:
Family Recipe Book - To share all of your favourite meals and homemade recipes. Try writing out a journal or simply gluing recipe cards down in a book! You could even put the cards in a photo album for an easy and clean flipbook!
Yummy Treats - Do you have a signature cookie recipe? Or maybe a special seasoning you create from scratch? Gifting homemade treats is a great way to celebrate the holidays! From filling a cute tin container with gingerbread to a mason jar brimming with your homemade mixture, your family and friends are sure to feel the love!
Say Cheese! - From getting personalized mouse pads to mugs to candles, highlighting a favourite photo(s) and memory from the year can be a great way to show your loved ones how much you cherish them!
Let Them be Pampered - Creating homemade bath bombs, soaps and/or scrubs is not as hard as you think! Creating a cute little pamper set with a couple different items can be the perfect pick-me-up for anyone on your gift list.
Fabrics from the Heart - Are you an excellent sewer? Cross-stitcher? Love to create with fabric and yarn? Gifting homemade washcloths, blankets, scarves or even clothing makes an exciting and unique gift that your family and friends are sure to love!
