One of my favorite parts of Christmas is gift giving. I love being able to show my love and appreciation for friends and family in the form of a present. Here are five D.I.Y. gift ideas that are simple, sweet and perfect for a shopper on a budget. Most of these items only require a quick trip to the craft store, grocery mart or a thrift shop to complete, so you don’t have to worry about burning a hold in your pocket. Check out the links below to see full directions.
1.Personalized Literary Quote Mugs – I love the literature quotes, but drawings and geometric designs could be a fun alternative.
2. Handcrafted Cookie Mix Bag – Another great rendition of these bagged goodies — hot chocolate, marshmallows and Baileys!
3. Spray Painted Neon Silverware – These would also look sleek with gold and chrome colored spray paint.
4. Yarn Ball Bookmarks – Perfect for stocking stuffers — personalize these with a photo or hand written note.
5. Holiday Reindeer Cupcakes – Rudolph on a cupcake (cookie or giant cake)? I approve.
