Homemade Beauty Products
Every woman likes to treat herself, so an all-organic, homemade scrub is a thoughtful way to make someone feel great on their special day. Combining one part sugar to two parts almond oil makes for a simply luxurious body scrub, while adding her favorite scents — like lavender or jasmine — are the perfect finishing touch. Now you just need to wrap it up in a customizable jar. Finding Wholesale Craft Supplies is a great place to start if you’re looking for quality, affordable packaging.
Create Your Own Arrangement
Flowers are always a great gift for graduations, birthdays, or baby showers. To make a bouquet really unique though, try picking out the individual blooms yourself from a flower market and using high-quality floral accessories. You can choose her favorite flowers and colors to create something that’s truly personalized.
Find a pretty jar, or otherwise creative container — even a tea cup — and use it to hold a handmade candle that she’ll be able to enjoy for hours on end. Add colored wax, scents, or essential oils to create a personalized votive.
Custom Tote Bags
With environmentally friendly items at the forefront of everyone’s mind, a reusable tote bag she can carry for grocery shopping or beach days is a perfect gift! Tie dye a canvas bag or screen print the bag with her favorite photo so she can work, shop, and run errands in style.
Gorgeous paper products are all the rage, so keep her feeling fashionable with easy-to-make, elegant marbled stationery. Here is a tutorial by A Cup of Jo that we love. Opt for colors she’ll love and make as many pages as you’d like.
Upgrade Her Plants
Personalized terracotta flower pots don’t require too much: all you need is a little chalk paint and some tape. This will allow anyone to write messages or the names of each plant directly on their pots. Choose a variety of pot sizes to ensure that every plant has a home!
If your giftee is a foodie, finding a unique and delicious granola recipe to craft is a great idea! Include her favorite combo of treats and wrap it up in a hand painted mason jar for an extra special touch. Using a glass or plastic jar also allows her to reuse them once that tasty granola is all gone.
If you’ve got a bit of sewing skill, sachets are a cinch to make. Find a fabric that represents her and make little pouches filled with dried lavender, chamomile, or any other scent she would love!
Some ladies love to host, so make something pretty that she can use during her next dinner or brunch with these fun DIY tassel napkins. Use her favorite colors and patterns or match the decor that’s already a part of her home.
Celebrate with a Wreath
Use the festive flora of the season to craft a wreath to adorn her front door. No matter what season you’re gifting in, there are beautiful plants and flowers everywhere. If you don’t want to use any living plants, getting faux flowers and other embellishments will create a wreath that lasts for years!
The beauty of a DIY gift is that there are endless ways to customize each project, adding personal touches just for her. No matter what you decide to create, you can’t go wrong choosing something that represents her unique spirit and taste.
