Sometimes giving a gift that you made yourself to someone you love is a lot better than buying something from the store and then giving it to them. The do-it-yourself approach shows that you took your time while creating something you believed the person receiving the gift would enjoy having. If you want to prepare a lot of do-it-yourself gifts for your loved ones during the holiday season, take a look at some of these homemade gift ideas to get some inspiration before you get started.
Spa Day Gift Basket
A spa day gift basket is one of several homemade gifts you can start making right at home with a few supplies. Before you begin preparing the basket, you will need to purchase a large basket and miniature containers to put different products in, such as a sugar bath scrub, exfoliating lip scrub, deep conditioning treatment, and any of the other items you plan to make.
Making these different products is easy and fun. If you want to make a sugar bath scrub, you can mix almond oil with some brown cinnamon sugar and an essential oil of your choice to create the perfect scrub that makes skin feel so soft and silky. You can do the same thing with the exfoliating lip scrub. If you want to make a deep conditioning treatment for the hair, try combining coconut oil with olive oil, raw honey, and essential oils to create the perfect conditioning treatment.
After making these different concoctions, pour them into different containers, seal them shut, and then tie beautiful bows or ribbons around them to make them look a bit fancier. You can put the containers inside of the gift basket, wrap it up, and give it to someone as a gift.
Beaded bracelets are fun to make because you have so many options when it comes to using different beads to create unique bracelets that are colorful and cute. You can find the materials needed at an arts and crafts store. Many of these stores sell beads, bracelet wiring, clasps, and a lot of different charms that you can add to the bracelets.
Custom Designed Coffee Mug
If you are making a gift for someone who loves coffee, you can purchase a plain coffee mug and then decorate it using a permanent marker in a color of your choice, such as gold, silver, or even hot pink. Use stencils for the designs on the coffee mug to ensure that those designs will look fantastic. Once you’ve applied the designs to the mug, allow it to sit and dry before you begin wrapping it up and giving it to a special person in your life.
Put these homemade gift ideas to good use by making some of the different items and giving them to the different people in your life, such as your friends, relatives, and even your co-workers. Gifts that you have made yourself are often even better than presents that are purchased at stores because they are so thoughtful, customized, and unique.
