Figuring out the perfect thing to gift someone can seem like an uphill battle at times. You want to show you care but you also want to make sure it is something you like. Personally, I find the easiest way to please someone is to show you put a little work into it, rather just buying something off the shelves like a gift card. If you don’t mind spending a little effort into some gifts this year, try out some of these easy to make (and affordable!) gifts.
Geode Bath Bombs
There are tons of bath bomb recipes, but I haven’t ever encountered one as creative as this one. If you really want the gift to be different and stand out, this is a great option.
Spas are expensive and sometimes we don’t want to go out of the house to get the experience. By creating one for your friend, you give them a cheaper alternative that is free of harsh chemicals.
Mason Jar Pampering Gift
If you don’t feel like DIYing the whole gift, you can put together a mason jar which contains some DIY items and some store bought.
Give your DIY bath salt gift a little more character by adding some cute gift tags to it.
Laced Cement Votives
These votives are super stylish so if your friend is big on interior design, they’ll love this new addition for their home.
Even though it may be cold outside right now, it won’t be forever! Once it’s spring, your friend will be super excited to take their new picnic basket out for a spin.
Want to add something that can go into that picnic basket? Lemonade is a great choice of course!
For your stylish friends, this flower lightbulb project will be a cool way for them to decorate their home.
Coffee Cup Candles
Have too many coffee cups? Put them to good use by turning them into a recycled project. Re-purposing them as candles is a great way to clear out your kitchen and make a gift all in one go.
Peppermint Bath Bomb
Keep your gift in theme with the Christmas season by using peppermint in your bath bomb recipe!
Help your friend get organized for the upcoming year by giving them a custom made planner. There’s a free printable available from Fleece Fun!
Sugar Cookie Sack
Ready to make baked goods are definitely a classic. Dress it up with a fancy sack and gift tag.
Anyone of these gifts are sure to please your friend this holiday season. They really don’t require too much of your time and many are easy to make in batches if you don’t mind getting people similar gifts. Which one is your favorite? Let us all know in the comments!
