Holiday Gift Guide: DIY + Giveaway


If you have some time to make a personal gift then these homemade gifts are perfect.  Easy on the budget and from the heart, who can ask for more?  These are all things I've found on Pinterest and pinned in my gifts board for my own use.  Click the link right below to follow my boards on Pinterest.

  • Tile Coasters:  These are so cute and can so easily be personalized with photos or made to fit the decor of whomever is the gift recipient.  Seriously some cheap tiles from a home improvement store, scrapbook paper, and modpodge, that's it!

  • Homemade Cake or cookie mix:  I love this idea!  You some mason jars or pretty jars from Homegoods and fill it with the dry ingredients of a delish cookie or cake favorite of yours.  Use a cute card and piece of twine to tie to label and give the wet ingredients of the recipe.  Viola!  They get to enjoy a delicious treat and thank YOU for each bite!

  • Salt or Sugar Scrub:  I discovered this stuff from Bath and Body Works and decided it is way too expensive so I went in search of ways to make it myself.  Below are some that I made for gifts but you can find tons on Pinterest or check out my sugar scrub post.


  • Monogrammed Cake Carrier:  Think of all those times you've gone to a potluck and somehow your carrier top is mixed with all the other tops and suddenly you're the one left with no cake top.  No more!  Break out your Silhouette and vinyl and monogram away.  Check out this one with the cute polka dots.


  • Teacup lights:  This is so cute and shabby chic.  Grab your favorite candle, I love the ones from Bath and Body Works when they have big sales! Have some old coffee cups?  Or check out Tuesday Morning or Homegoods for some cute cups.  Martha Stewarts tutorial is great.
