Over the past few weeks, we’ve shown you all sorts of gift guides – for our moms, for your best friend, for the boys – to inspire you and get you in the right mood for Christmas. But what has been missing the whole time were some cool DIY gift ideas for those who are on a tight budget when it comes to Christmas presents, or if you simply want to give something more personal that you can’t just buy in any other store. So here we are, giving you some ideas of what we would like to make, receive and give all the same – to us, these are the greatest gift ideas for selfmade presents out there! Ready, steady, craft!
DIY Succulent Garden
This might be the perfect present for your mom, grandfather or everybody else with a love for plants and the ability to make them grow and not kill them within a week. We love succulents as a table topper, on the window board or as a cute little terrace decoration!
Cookie Baking Mixture
You might have already seen this one on our facebook page this week, but it’s just too cute of an idea to not post this today! When we came across the baking mixture in a jar, we knew we had to remember the idea for next year’s christmas and will give it to a person with a passion for baking; such a nice idea!
DIY Jewellery Tray
A three story étagère for jewellery doesn’t only look cute, it’s also very practical and comes in handy in small spaces. Such a cute gift for your girlfriends and very easy to make!
DIY Shell Bracelet
This is the perfect eyecatcher for any armparty and also very suitable as a matching friendship bracelet. Also, it reminds a lot of summer, sun and fun – your friends will love you for that!
DIY Chain Trimmed iPad Sleeve
This Stella McCartney lookalike may be a bit of work and requires an iPad sleeve as well, but the finished product simply looks so good that it’s definitely worth the effort!
Gold Leafed Wall Art
Everyone loves to receive some nice decor items for the apartment (see our gallery wall examples here) and this DIY gold leafed print is elegant and beautiful, we would have never guessed it’s a DIY!
