Homemade gift ideas
special occasions; birthdays, Christmas, Easter, Valentine's day,
Father's Day, Mother's Day, you name it, we have it. Handmade
gifts are always appreciated as they have been lovingly made.
is a great gift idea for all sorts of
situations; for the birth of a baby, Christmas, Father's or
Mother's Day, or even for a wedding anniversary. Gift baskets really a
the ideal choice for people who have everything and you don't know what
to buy them.
The trick to getting the gift right is to think of the person's likes,
dislikes and hobbies. Never give something to someone because you like
it, give it because you know that the recipient will like it.
Homemade Gift Ideas for Women
in a jar
perfect gifts, not just for women, but men as well. Many women love the
idea of easy recipes
for homemade bread, cookies, jams and
marmalades, but don't actually know how to make these things. If you
are good at making jam and marmalade, why don't you make a couple of
bottles, dress them up with checkered gingham top and label it using
raffia and a card from recycled paper.
Here are some more gift
s. If you are good at candy making
give some homemade candy as a gift. Think of a hobby that you do that
you could give away as a gift. I have been given handmade soap from a
friend who did soap making as a hobby and some lovely pottery dishes
from a friend who loved to do pottery. On both occasions I was thrilled
to receive them as both were very talented and the gifts were lovely
and personal, not just store-bought.
Just because something is homemade, does not mean that the quality is
not there. It should be, and if it isn't, don't give it away. Only give
someone something that you would be able to sell if you could because
it is that good!
Homemade bath salts are dead easy to make and lovely to use.
Homemade Gift Ideas for Men
For homemade gift ideas for men make soap on a rope for them to use in
the shower. Or if you are good at leather work, there are a number of
possibilities - business card holders, wallets, glasses case or a
Dad's can be sentimental too, so a nice frame with a picture, or a
scrapbook made of family holiday photos would be appreciated.
We will be updating this page on a regular basis as we get the time to
add all our gift ideas. And if you have some of your own,
please share them.
