I just LOVE the holidays. Everything about it!! Being with family, singing lots of songs, eating lots of food as well making LOTS of presents for people you love.
One of my absolute favourite things to do is to make my own gifts. There’s something special about giving someone something homemade. Here are some ideas of things that you can make yourself for your loved ones.
Candles. My mom and I make candles every year as gifts! Here is a great online tutorial for how to make them, they’re a great gift to make with a loved one. 🙂
A framed photo of a fun memory. I know you have to pay a little for the development of the photo, and the frame, but this is such a nice memorable and personal gift.
A handmade necklace or bracelet. Sometimes making jewelry is so much fun, and if you have something you’re proud of then you can give it as a gift to someone you love. Here is a great video tutorial we found that could help you get started.
Anything crochet. I used to crochet little things all the time! Hats! Headbands! Gloves! Scarves! All of these things make a wonderful gift, and crocheting is such a fun hobby to take up.
A cool drawing or painting. It’s guaranteed that a loved one will appreciate a personal painting or drawing. Download a colouring sheet from Rockin’ Robin here.
Music. Everyone loves music of course. We have a brand new CD out called “Holiday“ and it would make a wonderful gift!
Basically… if you make anything for your family and friends, I’m sure they will love it. Homemade gifts take a lot of thought and effort, and everyone appreciates the thought in every gift!
Tweet me @RockinRobinShow and let me know some of your gift ideas. I’d love to hear them.
And until next time…
