The holidays are a time for joy + cheer — what better way to spread the holiday spirit than giving? It feels so good to give a gift knowing you put time + effort into putting a smile on your friends face. These gifts don’t have to be expensive — it’s sometimes even more thoughtful to give a personal twist to something you’ve made yourself!
Here are our favorite DIY holiday gifts this season for anyone in your life [but especially for a CHAARG girl this CHAARGmas ; )] —
1] HOMEMADE BATH BOMBS
A great go-to gift, bath bombs give your recipient an excuse to lax + enjoy some *me-time.*re With great holiday scents like peppermint + cute festive designs like this holly bath bomb, you can’t go wrong. You can also make one big batch + instantly have tons of gifts! The best part about DIY spa products is that the ingredients are often all natural + healthy. Bonus — they’re usually household items!
2] PAINTED MUG
You don’t have to be super artsy to DIY a holiday gift — even when it requires you break out your drawing skills ; ) We all LOVE coffee or tea ++ love our fun mugs even more! This gift can get as personal or as whimsical as you want + it’s so easy — grab a plain white mug, an oil-based Sharpie + get to werk. This is ideal for something you want to spend a little more time but not a lot of $$. You can trace letters, shapes, or simply freehand. When you’re finished, you pop your mug in the oven + you’re good to go!
3] PREMADE MIXES
A cute, festive + simple gift for the foodie in your life is a premade mix of their favorite treat. There are tons of styles + printables available online to elevate your choice, but we love the mason jar mixes! These can be as simple as chocolates in a reindeer mason jar or as complex as an entire cake mix layered. We love the hot cocoa kits + cookie kits! These are inexpensive + can easily be made for anyone in your life with a note to make it more personal! [++ maybe you can taste test the mixes yourself ; )]
There are so many ways to DIY a candle, like creating your own scent or simply painting the votive of your favorite! It’s easy to put a unique spin on the classic gift of a candle. After a quick trip to your craft store for things like candle wax + decorations, you’re ready to go for a cheaper + more personal alternative!
