I love to give handmade gifts- they’re special, personal, and I just enjoy making them. Today I’m sharing some of my favorite DIY gift ideas. Click the links below for more details about each project, as well as a step-by-step tutorial.
They’re perfect for Christmas, Teacher Appreciation, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Birthdays, you name it. Plus, some of these are pretty darn impressive if I do say so myself!
There’s something luxurious about these beautiful, yet simple (and did I mention very easy to make?!) all-natural soy wax candles. Plus you can customize them for your recipient and occasion. Add Holiday scents, florals, it’s up to you.

How cool are these stylish tile coasters? And would you believe that they were made by my daughter’s second grade class? With Sharpies? And did I mention that there’s fire involved? You’ve got to try making these!
Luxurious bath salts are the ultimate easy-yet-impressive diy gift! With just five ingredients, they’ll take you 10 minutes to make, max! Put them in a pretty container, add a cute label, and voila!
These gorgeous and chic tea towels cost about $5 to make. They’re fun and cheerful too! And who doesn’t need their kitchen brightened up right about now?

Add a cute succulent or drapey artificial plant, and you have a perfect DIY Christmas gift!
Wax melts are fun and easy to make, and they smell fabulous! I like to pair them with an inexpensive wax warmer to give as a gift! Here are my favorite wax warmers too.
Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold. These gorgeous, yet simple coasters use gold leaf paint to repair tiles- creating stylish modern DIY gifts!
