The holidays are a great chance to spend time with people you love and care about. Unfortunately, finding gifts that everyone likes for those holidays, can be a costly task. Luckily, with a bit of creativity and a few things you may already have around the house, you can make a creative and thoughtful gift. Here are seven creative holiday gift ideas that you can give that will be sure to be appreciate with the effort you put into them.
If you have some old ornaments that you don't use anymore, here is a great way to find value for them. By simply throwing some paint and some glitter on them, you can make a unique and creative gift tha they can use during the Christmas season. And if you are a bit more creative, you can even draw on the ornament with an artistic demonstration of what you think of the person you are giving it to. Homemade ornaments are a creative gift idea that will remind people of you each year as they put up their tree.
Find an old bucket lying around your house and you can add a bunch of small knickknacks that you think the person could use. Maybe it's a bunch of that persons favorite foods, or even a bucket full of items that they could use around the house. Whatever it may be, its simple to throw together and they will surely find use out of a gift bucket.
Home Made Candles
Candles may take an initial investment to purchase a kit, but once you have done so you can make unique gifts for everyone you know. The better you get with your candle-making skills, the more artistic you can be with the pieces you make. Candles are one of those things that come in very handy, but people don't always have on hand. If you give them candles that you make, the sentiment behind the gift will be even more appreciated.
If you already have your arts and crafts kit out from making the ornaments, keep them out to make some really great coffee mugs. Ideally, you'll want to find some plain mugs that you can draw on and decorate. Personalized coffee mugs are great to give because when the person takes it to work, they won't have to worry about anyone else using it when they want their daily dose of caffeine.
Wine Cork Keychain
Have a bunch of wine corks around that you don't have a use for? Simply put a keychain on it and you have a unique gift idea that they the person can put their keys on.
Box Of Money
Creative gifts don't mean you have to skimp on the cost. Go buy a box of chocolates, but help yourself to what's inside. In their place, leave rolled up or folded pieces of money that will certainly surprise the person you are giving them to when they open the box. This can be a pricey gift, but it's unique and creative, and it also allows them to use the money on whatever they want.
Macaroni noddle's probably aren't the best option here. But if you have the skills to solder some metal or put together creative strings of beads, then some homemade jewelry is a cute idea for a homemade gift.
All of the ideas on this list will take a bit of creative and effort. But once you've completed it, you'll be able to give a heartwarming gift that your friends and family will certainly appreciate. Best yet, if it is something you make, you won't have to worry about anyone else giving the same gift!
