Homemade Gift Ideas - Presents You Can Make At Home
Are you seeking inspiration for homemade gift ideas?
It seems as if home made gifts are regaining popularity these days, and with the economy the way it is, what better way to show someone you really care than by giving them something you put your time and energy into and worked really hard on?
If this sounds like something you're interested in, then you might be looking for some easy and fun ideas.
So, what homemade gift ideas could be interesting?
- For a homemade present, consider making a family recipe book. When you make it like you would a scrapbook, it will be an easy-to-use book that's fun to keep within easy reach. You can get creative with this idea, but if you're interested in keeping it small, a pretty little photo album will do the trick. Print all of your recipes up on card stock and add decorations such as stickers that you would use on a scrapbook.
- Why not mix up some muffin mix for those whom you love? When you package them in a tin lined paper bag and decorate it up with ribbons and pretty baking instructions, you have a gift that your friends and family will not only use, but they will cherish your hard work and creativity.
- Wouldn't mom love some home made bath salts? That's another nice homemade gift idea. While you're at it, why not make some for grandma, too? Okay, so maybe it's not Mothers' Day, but you can still mix up some salts to help that special someone in your life soothe their stresses away. Now, you should know that you'll have to get essential oils, and that it takes a little bit of work, but when you package them in pretty bottles that you can get for next to nothing and include some special tags, you can make a lot of gifts for friends and family.
- Your kids will love to get in on the action when you have them make molds of their handprints. These are great homemade gift ideas for moms, dads, aunts and uncles and especially grandparents. When you have your little ones paint it and include their pictures with a cute poem, you'll find that gift giving has become a million times easier.
- Another really fun homemade present that you can give is a coupon book. If you're making this for your love, include some romantic coupons, such as a coupon for a hair washing or massage. For this homemade gift idea, don't forget to include little coupons like cleaning the kitchen and doing the laundry if you're giving to the partner who does the most housework.
- A pretty wrapped coffee can will not only serve as a decoration, but it can hold pens and pencils, paperclips and anything else that you can think of, so get creative and start decorating.
- You can make a message board on your own and it's easy and inexpensive. Find a piece of board in the shape and size that you're looking for, add some blanket fill that is flat and will offer a smooth surface, then wrap the whole thing up with the fabric of your choice. Add some coordinating ribbons in a cris-cross pattern and you've got a functional decoration.
When you're looking for some really fun homemade gift ideas, you'll find that all you really have to do is look around a little bit and get creative. Think of what your recipient likes to do and likes to have and you'll be able to create wonderful presents that cost next to nothing and that will make gift giving for any occasion more fun.
