A DIY Gift Guide For Friends And Family: Part 1In the past, I have always felt the need to buy my friends gifts. Mostly, it's because it's so much easier than figuring out what to make them and it means a little more than a gift card. But this year, I'm going to try something new. I've composed a list of some of the perfect gifts for my friends and I thought I would share them with you. Most of these gifts I probably won't give out, just because I don't have that many friends. But I would probably pair some of these together because they're super easy to make and some of these would go great together.
Hand Painted Mug: This would be great for that coffee or tea fanatic in your life, or maybe someone who just likes hot chocolate. I would highly recommend giving this with maybe a few coffee or tea samples, or maybe a packet of hot chocolate mix. It's super easy to make this, and you can personalize it for the person your giving this to.
Decorated Picture Frame: This is perfect for family or friends that you have a lot of great memories with. It is also another great gift that is personalized and very easy to make. A twist on this would be getting a wooden box, like from Michaels, and glue the picture to the top. You can decorate the outside of the box however you want. On the inside, it gives the recipient a place to put whatever the want, maybe notes or other pictures.
Jar of Cookie or Brownie Mix: I say this is perfect for anyone who loves food or sweets. Basically all you do is find a recipe that your friend would like and put the dry ingredients into a mason jar. Then you attach a note of that other ingredients they need and how to bake it. Honestly it's not that hard and I would love to get.
Gift Baskets: Gift baskets have been around since the beginning of time and people make a ton of money selling them to people to lazy to put together their own. It actually very easy to do your own. All you need is either a gift bag, box, or basket, and the items to put in it. For girls, you could try organizing a makeup basket or possibly a basket full of items for a pamper day. For guys, (girls probably would like these too) you could try a basket full of their favorite foods, or maybe the items for a movie night. Or you could come up with your own idea, the possibilities are endless.
Stay tuned, I'll be doing more posts full of more great ideas!
