Let’s be real, there’s nothing worse then when someone opens up your DIY gift and they act all excited but their face says otherwise. Gifts for the holidays can get pretty expensive which is why many of us turn to making our own. Gifts from the heart mean more, right? Not if it comes at the expense of your recipient! Have no fear, here are DIY gifts that you can give and would actually want to receive.
This gift is super easy to make and super adorable. Your friends can easily hang up their terrarium to brighten their wall or they can place them on their desks at work to brighten their day. Trust me, everyone will be asking you for one of these once they set their eyes on them.
Let’s face it, we all love Instagram, and with the new adult colouring book trend this gift will bring the virtual to real life. Pick out your favourite Instagram photos and have them printed in a modern colouring book. Everyone in your circle of friends will be begging for one.
