Are you the type that leaves gift buying until the very last minute each year? Do you see the calendar ticking down to the big day, yet it’s not quite enough to light the fire under you and prompt you to get out to the shops? Maybe the problem is that you just don’t find the kind of items that inspire you or speak to you. If that’s the case, a great solution can be DIY holiday gifts. With a DIY gift, you’re able to customise it for that specific person and give them something truly unique and special.
Let’s take a dive into five DIY festive gift ideas that are perfect for giving to family and friends.
A Gift Basket of Homemade Goodies
Sometimes the very greatest gifts you can give to people are the ones you’ve made yourself, and in this case, we are talking about making from scratch in the form of treats and goodies. Whether your specialty is biscuits, preserves, jellies, or any other such item you can create a whole basket of goodness. You can even add things like cute little teacups, herbal teas, gourmet coffee, and speciality hot chocolate.
It’s the kind of item that anyone will enjoy and then you don’t have to worry about colour palettes for the home, sizing, and personal interests.
A Homemade Photo Collage
One of the most personal gifts you can give someone is an item that showcases a memory between the two of you. Photos are a great way to do that, but rather than just giving them a print, why not create a photo collage filled with special moments, memories, a special holiday, or event.
Just as important as the photos you choose for this gift is the frame itself. You want something elegant and timeless so it will work with any décor, and that’s where PicFrames has you covered. You can order online and browse through its selection of photo frames by colour, size, or style. Your gift will end up look really professional, and of course it will be loved.
