To me, there is nothing like receiving a gift where someone put a lot of thought and effort into it. Instead of wandering into the nearest Target and picking up a gift set of different shower gels, isn’t it better when someone takes the time to make you something beautiful? I’m not saying buying gifts don’t require thought and effort but how about saving some money this year and making something from your heart for your loved ones? The best part of this? Your new favorite website, Pinterest, can help you!
Pinterest is amazing for finding crafts and gift ideas you may have never even thought about! Everyone knows the classic “cookies in a jar” or “no sew blanket” gifts. How about trying something different this year that your friends and family will rave about and be amazed when you tell them you did it yourself? They won’t even have to know how cheap it will be because it will appear expensive and beautiful! Here are some ideas from my Pinterest boards. Let me know which ones you try out!
