The holiday season is fast approaching, so it’s time to start thinking seriously about gift giving. This year I really hope to find gifts that will make the people I care about feel extra special. I love giving homemade gifts. This year time to make a lot homemade gifts is not a luxury that I have, so I’ll be scaling back some. In the past I have enjoyed designing personalized calendars using family photos. Personalized gifts are another great way to make someone feel extra special, especially kids. Most of the kids in my family have either unusual names or names that are spelled a little differently, so I’ve never really been able to walk into a store and purchase personalized gifts off the racks. This holiday season I’ll be checking out the Bright Star Kids web site for personalized gift giving.
Ideas for adding personalized touches to your gifts that don’t require a lot of time or money:
Personalized Gift Wrap: Recycle brown paper bags, and use markers, stamps, and photos to personalize your gift wrap.
Personalized Coffee or Tea Baskets: For your coffee and tea loving friends, pack up a basket or gift bag with some assorted coffees or teas. Purchase a solid color mug, and use a ceramic marker to write a personalized message onto the mug – maybe a favorite quote or inside joke.
Decoupage with Photos: Print family photos onto standard printer paper and use them to decoupage things like boxes and picture frames. You can even use an empty can to make a decoupage pencil holder.
Personalized Gifts for Kids: Homemade personalized journals make a great gift for older kids. Younger children love seeing their names on things, so personalized books and stories have always been a favorite of mine.
