Amazing Create Your Own Gift Ideas

* This is a collaborative post

With the rising cost of living today, having the ability to save where possible can be a great thing. In today’s world, there seems to be added expenses coming from everywhere, so saving is more than just great, it’s also a necessity. 

Today we are going to look at a great way to save a little cash, and present a few ideas for how you could make some special gifts and give somebody something truly unique.

Why Create Your Own Gifts?
When it comes to giving gifts, it seems that thoughtfulness has fallen by the wayside over the last few years. It seems with the plethora of online stores offering so much, you can simply head to Google and type “gifts for my mate Cynthia from Swansea”, and you will find some kind personalised nonsense that makes gift buying easy.

If you want to break this cycle and really show somebody you care, then making your own gift is a fantastic idea.

Cook Up A Storm
One of the most creative things you can do to really show somebody that you care is to get in the kitchen and start cooking.

While you may be a huge fan of the Bake Off, this section isn’t about baking cakes. What we are going to be looking at here is getting creative with some chocolate. If you do a little searching, you can find some rather wonderful chocolate moulds that will allow you to make somebody you care about some incredible chocolates.

The great thing about this is, not only can you show somebody how well you know them by incorporating their favourite flavours, but you can also avoid the waste that comes when people realise there are four Turkish delights in the box.

Personalised Artwork
When people see this, they often sink into the chair at the thought of being artistic, but worry not this idea is far simpler than you may think. 

The first thing you can do is to photocopy a page from the recipient's favourite book. You then scan this image and blow it up to fit an A4 page. Once you have done this, you print it out. 

Now, you just have to find a popular phrase or part of the book that they love and then print this on top of the blown-up page print out. While this sounds simple, you simply find a frame from a company like Best4Frames which will really finish it off, and you have a thoughtful and one of a kind gift that really shows just how much you care.

If you are a crafty person and you know you could create something brilliant, then you should go ahead. Nothing says that you care more than carefully creating a bespoke gift that your friends will love.

It’s important to remember when gifting that it’s never about the money you spend, but it is more about the effort you put in.
