Chalk Couture and Creative Memories have some great DIY gift ideas for the upcoming season!
Graduation, Fathers Day and Weddings are coming up and I have some great gift ideas and why DIY gifts are the best!
First lets look at the reasons why DIY gifts are the best!
DIY gifts take more time and can be more personal making them more thoughtful for the recipient. Include a favorite saying, name, color or pattern and you have a personalized gift.
Plus you get to use your creative juices and give your brain some more exercise. Creating something can be therapeutic or a time to get away from our busy schedules. It’s great to have any excuse to do what we love. You have creative talents – share them! Finishing a creative project can give you such a sense of accomplishment right? Seeing somebody wear, use, or display what you created them, can give us that same feeling!
No one can compete with your gift and there won’t be another like it and we all have that “hard to shop for” person in our lives right? When you give handmade you can choose to create a one-of-a-kind gift that is unique to that person. Sometimes it’s nice to wear or have something that nobody else has! Just think, it could be a masterpiece worth millions and will be a gift that is treasured.
There have been times when I will purchase something and it falls apart or even breaks during shipping. When you make your own gift you determine the quality by choosing the best supplies, techniques, etc..
I LOVE the surprise factor when giving a gift! Handmade gifts can bring tears, laughter, jaw-dropping expressions and so much more
