Christmas DIY

Still racking your brain for gift ideas to give friends, family or co-workers? It’s only two days shy from the big day and we know the panic and frenzy that goes with trying to find the perfect one. But why not make your own? We’re throwing a five nifty last-minute ideas and we hope that it will ease some of the holiday headaches.
1.    Take a picture. Using your trusty camera, take snapshots of your favorite person (it could be you, the recipient or someone else entirely), and print it on coasters, jewelry charms, mugs, magnets, shirts…you get the idea.
2.    Stress Busters: We know how the holiday season can put a toll on anybody. We suggest giving away homemade bath soaps, bath fizzies, or even herbal pillows that are sure to melt those stresses away.  (check out some recipes from marthastewart.com)

3.    Turn the Volume Up. We believe that music is meant to be shared so why not do some sharing of your own? Burn your favorite tunes on a CD and go creative on your presentation, and voila! You can’t be more personal than that.

4.    Reuse and recycle. No, we don’t mean recycling last year’s gift…instead, use your old, unused tea cups as containers for    some handmade candles. (check out some recipes from marthastewart.com)

5.   Go Green. Check out your local nursery, and discover an array of herbs, potted plants and bulbs that are wonderful to be given as gifts. Simply transfer them in more presentable pots and containers and you’re good to go!
