It is clear that this Christmas will be quite different due to the pandemic, but that is not to say that it won’t be special. There are lots of ways to make this Christmas a memorable one, including DIY gifts for loved ones which will show that you are thinking of them. Here are a few ideas for the most thoughtful DIY gifts that you could give this year.
A candle is always a nice gift, but making your own will make it that extra bit special, plus this is a fun activity that can keep you busy this winter. Making your own candles is a surprisingly easy task and one which can be highly rewarding, plus it is easy to make lots all at the same time so you can make candles for all of your loved ones that they can enjoy using this winter.
Mini Bar in a Jar
A simple gift but one which could certainly be enjoyed by many this Christmas is a mini bar in a jar. This simply involves getting a large mason jar and filling it with alcoholic miniatures along with any other treat that someone could treat themselves to over the holiday period.
Perfect to go along with your Bar in a Jar, why not add a fun decal to a fancy gin or wine glass for a friend. All you need to do is find a pre-cut vinyl decal online (Etsy or Ebay is great for that) or use a cutting machine to make one of your own with vinyl. If applied correctly and washed with care they can last for ages! If you’re looking for some inspiration then I’d highly recommend having a look at DesignBundles.net – I’ve had my eye on some of these anchor svg files, especially the ones where you can add a monogram as they’d go perfectly on one of those double walled tumblers with a lid – they are ideal for gifting as holiday cocktail to go cups! Or if you’ve got a friend who enjoys a cheeky glass of wine there are some fab wine glass svg files that are ideal for personalising a special glass – I particularly like ones with funny slogans such as ‘full of christmas spirit’ or ‘mummy’s jingle juice’ 😂
Many people have turned to knitting this year which can certainly be a good hobby to take up during the winter months and when you are spending more time at home. You could also use your skills to knit clothes for loved ones, which will be a thoughtful gift that they can use during winter and show that you have been thinking of them as it will take a while to complete (make sure that you get started early!).
2020 has been a difficult year for everyone with people unable to spend as much time with loved ones and many restrictions in place. A photo album filled with pictures of loved ones and happier times is sure to be well-received this year and again it is a gift which shows that a lot of care and effort has gone into it.
Posting Your Gift
As there will be restrictions in place, the best way to deliver your gift this year is through the post. You will want to make sure that you find a reliable courier through somewhere like Parcel2Go so that you can rest assured knowing that your gift will arrive on time and safely.
Hopefully, this post will give you a few ideas for DIY gifts that you could give to loved ones this year. DIY gifts are always a great idea because they show that you have been thinking of the person and. – in times like this – it will certainly help to bring you closer together even if you cannot spend the holidays together.
