Here are a few cheap and easy (yet thoughtful) Christmas gift ideas:
For Loved Ones
1. A customized mug – just get a mug from a dollar store and write a message using a sharpie. Then bake the mug for 30 minutes at 350.
2. Felt animal pillow – Doesn’t neccesarily have to be a sheep, but the idea is adorable. All you need is some felt (available at any Wal-Mart or dollar store), a needle, thread, and stuffing ( recycled materials, plastic bags, or cotton fibers).
3. Creating a canvas collaged silhouette will give your friends something to display in their home (or closet, haha) that’ll remind them of you. Wal-Mart (and other craft stores) often sell varying sized canvases in packs on 2 for around $6.
TIP: Use Google to pick out your silhouette free handing it can be difficult and disappointing Don’t feel like collaging? Use scrapbooking paper for your silhouette.
Give the guy in your life something to keep him warm and toasty during the winter months. By recycling an old sweater (or hunting for one to recycle at any thrift store or out of season sale), making mittens are easy. All you’ll need is paper to make the simple outline, the sweater, and a needle and thread.
Customized ornaments are not only inexpensive because you can buy the basic bulbs in bulk, but serves as a gift where you’ll be remembered every Christmas. Take a look at this list of 30 Geekiest Tree Ornaments and get inspired to create gifts for any type of fan.
