Creative Birthday Presents - Special Gifts Which Sparkle

Need ideas and inspiration for creative birthday presents and gifts?

No matter how old you are, birthdays are always a special occasion. Purchasing the right birthday gift for someone can be fun, especially if you take the time and consideration to put a lot of thought into the process.

Although there are tons of great gifts that can be purchased in stores and online, being creative with your gift ideas can not only make the gift itself more personalized, it can also make it more exciting as well.

So what are some creative birthday presents?

The good news is, you don't have to be talented in arts and crafts to be creative. Even if you can't paint a beautiful picture, design a great looking piece of jewelry, or construct a hand carved wooden bookshelf, you can still have some creativity in the gifts that you purchase.

For one thing, if you can't make a gift, then you might want to consider having someone else make it. There are tons of personalized gifts out there, from soaps to blankets, that can be made with a person in mind. It's all about finding the right person who can do it. You might, for instance, want to think about having the person's favorite scents made into a fragrant bubble bath for them. There are even personalized tote bags and wine bottles out there. Let your imagination run wild when brainstorming possible creative birthday presents.

Making your own gift sets is creative, too. Of course, you can go to the store and purchase a gift set that's already put together and tied with a pretty bow, but a personalized one is even more creative. If the person loves cheese and bread, for instance, then purchase a basket and fill it with great cheeses, spreads, and French bread. This shows initiative and creativity on your part - a creative birthday present indeed!

Nostalgia items can be fun, too. If you and the person that you are buying for have been friends for a long time, then think about putting together a gift set that includes a scrapbook of old photos of the two of you, DVDs of home videos of the two of you when you were younger, and any other mementos of your time together. It's very popular right now to transfer home VHS tapes to DVD, and this can make a great gift.

Of course, if you are crafty, then hand making a gift is creative and has a "wow" factor. If you're good at building, for instance, then consider making the person a book shelf, a cabinet, or even a small statue as possible creative birthday presents. If you're good at knitting, then a personalized throw might be valued. Homemade candles are nice and almost always appreciated as creative birthday presents, too.

A couple of years ago, my husband didn't have a lot of money to spend on me, so he made my birthday a mini-event. He bought several small presents for me and sent me on a scavenger hunt through the house to find them. When I finally ended up in the kitchen, he had a dinner prepared for me, as well as a DVD rental of a movie that I had wanted to watch. The presents were all inexpensive and small, but the effort and creativity was very appreciated.

So, put some thought and effort into the process, and you'll definitely be able to come up with some ideas for creative birthday presents and gifts.
