This festive season, unleash your creativity and add a more personal touch to your gifts by DIY-ing them. Whether you’re looking for something special for your wife, mother, or friend, a DIY gift is the way to go. After all, it’s always the thought (and the effort) that counts.
In this article, we’re giving you some unique DIY gift ideas that will definitely sweep her off her feet. Read on to find out what they are.
1. Make a cute photo collage
Gift-giving is all about showing the other person how much you mean to them. So what’s better than a collection of your favorite memories together?
With the help of a collage maker, create something truly incredible for your loved one. Go through your photo album and pick out moments that made you laugh. Add pictures of trips that you’ve been on together. Also add fun, candid pictures of the two of you doing everyday things.
The more personal you get, the more likely you are to get a happy tear or two when you give her your gift.
You should make this even more special by making a bundle of collages and adding them to a scrapbook that she can cherish forever. Or frame a photo collage of the two of you so she can keep it on her bedside table.
2. Make special resin jewelry
With resin, you can create anything, from tiny decoration pieces for her living room, to beautiful sculptures. Resin jewelry, however, is classic and understated.
Make a resin pendant or a ring for her. The process is incredibly simple and you only need a few items to make it. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Epoxy resin
- A small mold
- Pressed flowers
- A chain or metal wire
Put a small pressed flower in the mold and pour resin on top of it. Make sure to leave a small hole at the top if you’re making a pendant. Once it dries, take it out of the mold, put it through a chain, and voila! You have a beautiful DIY pendant. If you’re making a ring, simply glue a folded metal wire underneath and leave it to dry.
3. Make a homemade facial scrub
Skincare products are some of the easiest and most convenient to make at home. The honey and lemon scrub is a favorite because of its ability to make your skin glow. Here’s what you’ll need for it:
- Baking soda – 1 tsp
- Lemon – 1 tsp
- Honey – 1 tbsp
Simply mix these ingredients together, put the mixture in a tiny jar, and leave it in the fridge overnight. Make sure to decorate the jar and leave a cute note on top.
There are plenty of DIY facial scrubs that you can make from everyday ingredients. So give it a try!
4. Make a scented candle
Scented candles are perfect for a day of meditation and relaxation. Show her how much you care by making one yourself. Trust us, it’s easier than it looks.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- A jar
- Melted wax
- A wick
- Scented oil
- Some broken crayons (optional)
Pour her favorite scented oil into a bowl of melted wax. Crush some crayons and add those too if you’re looking for a pop of color. Then, take your jar and tape the wick to the bottom so that it stands up straight. Finally, pour your wax mixture carefully into the jar, cover it, and leave it at room temperature overnight.
Personalize your DIY gifts even further by accompanying them with a heartfelt note. It will bring the whole gift together and make her incredibly happy.
The key takeaway here is to be bold and creative with your gift-making endeavors. The more personal your gift is, the more special it will be.
