DO IT YOURSELF XMAS GIFTS
Added on: 9th Dec 2014
PERSONALLY WRITTEN PLATES
You can choose any porcelain plate for this simple but very
thoughtful gift. As for the wording, you can write favourite
song lyrics, a poem, or even a speech, and a set of quotations.
WOODEN LETTERS ON CANVAS
Simple but very elegant when displayed in the living room,
this Christmas gift only takes little amount of patience to create.
Wooden letters, canvas, paint, and glue should be able to help you
make a gift that is worth displaying.
Guys, especially those who love accessories, would love to have
this kind of gift from girls. And because ladies know how to make
braids very well, making a braided nut bracelet should be a cinch.
COUPLE LOVE PORTRAIT
You can give this special gift to a couple or you could give this
as a sweet offering to your spouse. And you do not have to spend
so much to let them feel your support. A presentable frame,
a wonderful paper, and printout of the famous couples with
a standout print of the couple are very great.
You do not have to resort to expensive photo vases in order
to give a personalized container that can serve as a special gift.
Just purchase a clear long straight vase, print a black and white
picture in vellum paper, wrap the said paper on the vase, stick
both ends with a double sided tape, and put a battery-operated
tea light inside. Voila!
NINTENDO ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM LUNCHBOX
You may find your well-loved console unit just staying in the attic
or in the basement of the house, but it still has value, especially
for the new generation of gamers. They may not enjoy 8-bit games
like Super Mario Bros anymore, but you could create a gift
that would just make old gamers envy. Just imagine an old
gaming console used as a lunchbox.
SCRABBLE TILE COASTERS
Your Scrabble tiles can still be put to good use thanks to the
idea of having tiles stick together on a corkboard to form a coaster
that would be great for different kinds of drinks. It is actually
so easy to make that even kids can do it.
I LOVE YOU BECAUSE… MESSAGE FRAME
Although these things can be bought at an online store as one set,
you can do your own by purchasing or using a frame,
printing an “I Love You Because…” message with patterned
paper in the middle or upper part for more writing room, and
some scrapbook items to make things even more personal.
Once done, just wrap it and you’re good to go.
GIFTS IN A JAR
Buy an empty bottle from a store, or you may gather some
from friends. Purchasing sticker paper and printing labels should
take care of the packaging. As for contents, you may decide to stuff
in whatever the theme is. You could use Energy, Faith, Laughter,
Inspiration, Action, and other things you could think of.
