In the world of creativity there’s nothing better than a handmade gift paired with something store bought. Giving the gift of handmade is adding a special touch to the perfect gift so here at Creative Living we added a touch of delight to your basic holiday gift ideas!
The ultimate hostess gift:
- Gifting a bottle of liquor? Well, bust out your scan and cut machine and cut out a holiday design or monogram on vinyl. Then, peel it off to stick on a set of rocks glasses for a perfectly personalized gift.
- You can also gift a scented candle but place the candle in a mason jar and make a candle holder using the same concept…stick and peel! Add some fancy matchsticks for your semi-homemade hostess gift.
Don’t forget about dad:
- Give dad the gift of grilling! Buy him the latest Weber Grill and along with that, give him homemade…
- barbecue sauces, rubs and t-shirt apron. Toss in new grilling tools and wood planks and you have a semi-homemade gift for dear old Dad.
A thank you for Mom:
Mom deserves only the best so over this holiday season give her what she wants most… a day off and some pampering! Fill a basket with champagne, chocolates, candles, and a soothing eye mask, luxury lotion and a piece of fine jewelry for your semi-homemade gift for mom.
Something for Junior:
Electronics, smart phones and digital toys are a huge trend for all the kids in the family.
So go ahead and make the big ticket purchase but give it along with a pair of homemade PJs or crocheted socks.
If they are going to spend their time staring at the screen they might as well be comfy in something handmade!
