In October of 2014 I shared 31 Days of simple, homemade gifts. It was an entire month dedicated to simple, DIY gift ideas and tutorials.
Below you’ll find links to all of them!
Why homemade gifts?
It is my belief that homemade gifts are a simple way to show love and care. The recipient of a homemade gift knows they have been thought about and considered (who doesn’t want that?!).
Homemade gifts are also good for the gifter. The satisfaction found in creating something with your own hands is something everyone should experience.
The problem with homemade gifts is that they can easily get out of control. They can become overwhelming and take the joy right out of the process. This is why I will be sharing SIMPLE homemade gifts. Gifts you can make without too much fuss. Gifts that won’t take weeks or months to prepare.
The simple, homemade gifts in this series include:
- DIY natural bath and body

- and more!
