Creative Homemade Gift Ideas
If you love photography and are good at taking pictures, then this is great activity to pick. For every letter of the person to whom you would be gifting, click a picture of the letter you find in nature or anywhere around the world. Say, for instance, the person’s name is Ray, find something that is shaped like an ‘R’ (like a tied rope, tree branch, etc.), ‘A’, and ‘Y’. If the letters you are looking for are difficult to find, get creative and use different available resources to make them. Thereafter, print each picture measuring 5x7”, combine all the pictures to form the name, and get a print-out of it. Get it enclosed in an attractive frame and you are ready to gift it.
When winters are around, nothing can be better than gifting knitted clothing or accessories. If you are good at it, then take out time to make beautiful and gorgeous sweaters, caps, socks, and gloves. As for accessories, you can try your hand at pouches, bags, purses, or mobile covers. However, if knitting is not your cup of tea, get hold of the sewing machine lying unattended in one corner and stitch cotton bags, pouches, and jholas.
In case the recipient has a sweet tooth and craves for candies or chocolates, let loose your culinary abilities and bake some creative and delicious cookies, candies, cakes, or breads. Emphasize the gift by making a special cookie box. Get a paper container from the market and beautify it by pasting photocopied pictures of you and the recipient. Place the prepared treats in the box and add a whimsical touch by tying the box with a colorful ribbon.
If you are tight on the budget to buy jewelry from an expensive jewelry store, create some homemade jewelry gifts. Visit a craft store and get all the materials required to make chain necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and pendants. Depending upon the choice and personality of the recipient, make a bracelet and embellish it with different charms. Further, you can also opt for making a piece of jewelry to match the person’s astrological sign. For example, for a Virgo, choose blue crystals to represent the birthstone sapphire. Similarly, for an Aries, use diamond-like crystals resembling the birthstone diamond.
Nothing can beat the price and love of gifting homemade food to anyone who is a foodie. Prepare food items that you are best at, taking care about the tastes and preferences of that person. Start off with light appetizers and refreshing drinks. If you wish, you can also include soups followed by the main course. Finish off the meal with a finger-licking dessert. However, keep the dessert aside if the person does not have much of a sweet tooth.
