30 IHeart Holiday Gift Giving

 

With "Black Friday" quickly approaching, I wanted to toss out some gift ideas for this year.  Just ones that I am considering for the loves of my life.  I have been scouring the net for gift ideas that can be personalized and maybe even DIYed to be sure those receiving know just how special they are!

I adore the idea of putting together an art caddy or art supply tote for a little boy or girl.  Gather up some essential art supplies like crayons, makers, notepads, etc... and fill it up so your favorite little friend can spend hours getting their craft on anywhere they go!

Fill up an oven mitt full of baking goodies and wrap it with a bow!

I am over the moon smitten with the idea of personalizing onesies for that special new baby bundle.

What about molding your own DIY soaps for the special gal's in your life?  They would look so pretty in a dish in any bath space, and smell great to boot!

I love the idea of filling a galvanized pail with all sorts of car washing supplies!  Sponges, waxes and window wash will leave him and his car smiling all year long!

Grandparents are the perfect candidates for photo books filled with all of their favorite people and cherished memories!

Know someone who loves to cook?  Any box will do, filled with dividers and index cards will keep their favorite recipes always within reach!

This is one of my favorites for anyone that has a passion for sewing.  A mason jar filled with goodies and a DIY stuffed lid and you have the perfect tote along pincushion!

Don't forget those furry creatures when heading to a holiday party.  You can even bake them some healthy treats and toss them in a pretty jar!  I am sure they will reward you with a slobbery kiss!

Have you ever met anyone that doesn't LOVE ice cream sundaes?  I haven't.  How fantastic is this little packaged sundae kit?!  The perfect idea for the person you had no idea what to get!



What gift are you most excited to give this year?  Any other fab DIY gift ideas?

  4. I love that ice cream in a box set.

    I am doing Journal in a Jar gifts for the teachers at my son's school, complete with a journal to go with it. THere is a kids' version Journal in a Jar that I'll make for my niece. I found it on pinterest but you can google and find the printables too. :)

  7. That ice cream set is a fabulous idea. We do "family" gifts rather than get gifts for each person and this would be a hit.

  10. Super cute ideas!!
    I had planned on putting together a "cookie kit" for our gift in our "white elephant" game we play every year!
    But I am totally going to use the idea of putting it in an oven mitt! adorable!

    also- my husband and I just got married on Oct 21st, and we are getting our wedding pictures back right now.. so I am planning on making photo books of the wedding for parents and grandparents :)
    Just gotta pick which ones I like the best! SO HARD!

  19. The quickest way to my heart is thru my pups, so whenever I go to visit friends who I know have animals, I always try to take something along for them as well.

  21. I always do gift baskets for the girls around a theme. This year is pampering. Found Hot Sox thatngo in the microwavenor freezer, warm fuzzy socks for winter, making bath bombs, making cute scarves, putting in a saying for family/kid picture transferred to wood, and then my yummy chai spice loafs, and then my home made wine of the season which happens to be apple wine this year. Fast, easy, and under $25 a piece
