As it is the season of gift-giving, everyone wants to ensure their gifts are well-thought through and practical. However, for those people who have compiled a 2-page of who to gift this season, this idea of gift-giving may make their bank account cry out in pain. By keeping this in mind, we have compiled a list of gift ideas that won’t break the bank but are still thoughtful and practical.
1. Spice and Sauce Bottle Deco Vases
Especially during these times where family time at home has increased, people have taken an extra effort in making their environment feel more homely. So why not gift them some décor pieces? Spice and sauce bottles can be turned into lovely deco vases by spray painting them. Keep in mind that you should choose colours that go with the person’s home. A nice finish would be to add flowers to them.
2. Macrame Hanging Planters
To add to the homely environment, handmade macrame planters are ideal for making your space feel chicer and bringing more plants into the space.
Receiving a customised art piece is an honour. So, the idea of silhouette paintings expresses thoughtfulness. Start by choosing a side profile photo of the person you’re gifting it to. Then, trace the silhouette and then copy it onto art paper. Now the easy part is just to paint the whole inside black. Add it to a pretty frame and you’re done.
4. Homemade Bath Bombs
Bath bombs have been trending lately, and anyone would enjoy a soothing and aromatic bath occasionally. Homemade bath bombs can therefore be a nice way to express your care.
5. Personalised Tote Bags
Whether it’s going to the shopping centre to on a picnic, tote bags are very useful. Although there are some unique designs out there, personalising one may add to the fun. You will need to buy a plain canvas tote, a stencil and paint. Wrap it up and make someone very happy.
6. Hand Painted Bookmakers
For the bookworm, this idea of a hand-painted bookmaker is best. To complete this small project, you should have access to some sturdy paper and watercolour paint. You can start by coming up with your design or finding inspiration on Pinterest. Copy the design and then make it your own.
7. Chalkboard Planner
All you need is an old picture frame, some paint and chalk. Start by painting the frame and then the inside black. Gift it along with the chalk and you’re all set.
8. Knitted Coasters
Even if your knitting skills are on a beginner level, the idea of a handmade coaster is perfect. All you need is wool in your desired colour and some knitting needles.
9. Handmade Jewellery
As has been the pattern, anything handmade expresses the thoughtfulness behind the gift. Concrete jewellery is a unique and easy way to create jewellery as a gift without you needing to go for jewellery-making classes.
