Make a Gift Day: Handmade and from the Heart
With Christmas around the corner, you may be looking for some fantastic gift ideas for your family and loved ones. And let’s face it. Selecting a gift is one of the hardest things to do. But not anymore.
Here are seven handmade gift ideas you can make yourself.
Leather Jar Sleeve
Do you have an idle jar in your house? Why not turn it into a coffee mug? Wrap a piece of leather tightly around the jar’s cylindrical body. You can even use glue for a strong grip. Next, create two openings at the top and bottom of the leather wrap and attach a sleeve to make it look like a coffee mug.
Winter is here, and what better gift for winter than a cozy blanket? You can make it more unique and memorable by having some personal pictures printed on it. These blankets are great for impromptu picnics or movie nights with family.
Wall art has been a popular gift item for years, and it won’t go out of fashion anytime soon, especially if it’s handmade. And do you know what’s the best thing about wall art? There are endless opportunities. For example, you can create a photo collage and get it framed.
Who doesn’t love salsa and chips? Though readymade salsa is available everywhere, nothing beats the fresh and rich taste of homemade salsa. If you know how to make salsa, make some for your loved ones. You can also make chips at home and give them along with salsa.
Knitted Infinity Scarf
Infinity scarves are one of the trendiest pieces of clothing. You can wear them in winter, fall, and spring. A DIY knitted infinity scarf can be an amazing handmade gift idea for someone who loves to wear scarves. However, be sure to select the right colors that go well with a range of outfits.
If you’re looking for a gift idea for a student or someone who writes a lot, a personalized notebook can be a good choice. It’s also super easy to make. All you need to do is buy a notebook with a unicolor cover. You can use your art and craft skills to give it a completely new look and feel.
DIY iPad Case
Almost everyone has an iPad or e-reader nowadays, but few people buy bags specifically for them. If you know someone who needs a bag to keep their iPad, you can give them a handmade iPad case. You can use leather, cotton, nylon, or any other material for the case. Give the case a design by drawing something or sticking pictures.
Finding the perfect gift idea for your loved ones has never been easier. With so many DIY gift options out there, you can give a handmade, memorable, and affordable gift to your friends and family. All the gift ideas mentioned above are cost-effective and anyone can make them.
