The Perfect Handmade Gifts
Maximize your creativity
Indeed, any special occasion—a birthday, Christmas, Valentine's Day, anniversaries, etc. are times to show love to the people in your life. Aside from showing love to the ones around you, these special events are also the perfect time to be creative and resourceful in gift giving.
Since you are on a tight budget, visiting stores on sale or bazaars can definitely help you find inexpensive gifts to give out. You can also create homemade and handmade gifts using inexpensive materials. Here’s a short list of classy yet inexpensive gift items you can give out on any special occasion:
1. Personalized items. These are probably the most popular inexpensive handmade gifts of all times. Personalizing something like a recipe book for those who love cooking, a sketchpad for those who love drawing and sketching, a scrapbook for those who are fond of collecting and building memories, a notepad or journal for those who are inclined to writing, a photo album for those who love to keep photos, and the list goes on. Personalized items are inexpensive Christmas gifts because all you have to do is look for materials you can recycle. After recycling these items, you can add personal touches to it and give it away as a nice present.
2. Custom and handmade stationeries. Combine unused ordinary envelopes, colorful bond papers, and unique specialty papers and you can create a custom-made stationary perfect for your recipient. You can also use colored pencils, watercolors, and glitters to decorate your special stationary. You may even put shiny glitters and even put your recipient's favorite scent on it to make sure that he or she will really like it.
3. Sweets and treats. Cookies, chocolate treats, and sweet breads are surefire gift hits. If you can bake these goodies, you can save money compared to buying them. You can even warp these yourself by using nice jars and boxes, by collecting nice and colorful gift wraps or by tying them up with used ribbons, and laces.
4. Handmade or decorated ceramics, glasses, figurines, and cloth items. If you have an artistic knack, buy a plain set of white ceramic figurines, clear glasses or mugs and decorate them. By using a bottle of ceramic paint, you can decorate or color by hand the figurine. You can also draw season-inspired themes on clear glasses to make them extraordinary or you can buy a simple set of fabric paint to decorate mugs, shirts, and small cloth items.
5. Homemade bath oils and perfumes. These also make the ideal handmade gift if you are into mixing fragrances. To save some money, try buying a large amount of perfume ingredients and create special fragrances, perfume or bath oil for your recipients. You can also purchase individual mini-bottles to put these pampering products in.
