DIY Christmas Present: Blogmas14' Day 7

6:53:00 AM

Tis the season for spending, and more spending. It seems like my bank account is on a constant all-time low. Personally, I think there is nothing better than a sentimental, handmade, or well thought out gift.

1. Letter To Your Sweetie
 We all know this is the season of giving, happiness, joy, etc., etc. Why not express your feelings in a sentimental letter? It doesn't necessarily have to be to your significant other. Write a letter to your extended family, sending them holiday wishes and updates on your life. I feel like we don't appreciate one another enough, so what better time to appreciate each other than the holiday season!

Like these letters for example!

2. Homemade Goods
We all know the best way to a man's heart is through his….stomach? Anatomically, that doesn't make sense but why not bake up some favorite treats for friends and families this time of year? I personally LOVE my great grandma's sugar cookies. We only make them during the holidays because they require a lot of work!

3. Coupons
I am not talking about coupon cutting people. I am saying make a homemade coupon for someone. For example, a free 20 minute massage for your husband, a free lunch for your mom, etc. These are personal gifts and your family or friends can use them whenever they would like!

4. Get Out of Jail Free Card
This one is one I will be using for a stocking stuffer. This acts like a "get out of jail free card" from monopoly. For example, I am planning on using a "get out of doing your laundry for a day" for my boyfriend. (Alright, I already do most of his laundry but you get the picture.)
Some more examples:
"Get out of making dinner."
"Get out of doing the dishes."
"Get out of a grocery shopping trip."
"Get out of watching my favorite show." (We can record it)

What kind of DIY Christmas gift ideas do you have??
