If you’re looking for a gift for someone you love that’s unique and special, why not get creative and make something?
When you’re trying to save money and budget, shopping for your loved ones can be difficult. But you don’t have to spend a fortune. A personalised or homemade gift will really show you care much more than an expensive but thoughtless present.
With a little thought and imagination it’s easy to create something personal for that special person to treasure.
Here a few ideas for unique and thoughtful gifts that won’t break the bank.
Get Creative with Clothing
Customised clothing is a great idea for a present with a difference. A printed T-shirt is a thoughtful gift for someone special.
A personalised garment is the perfect present for someone with a great sense of humour or even a fashionista who loves to wear unique clothes!
Whether you choose to put their name on a shirt or a memorable photo or design, you can create a lovely, personal gift that the owner will cherish.
If you’re the creative type, you could create a customised T-shirt yourself. Otherwise, there are lots of specialist T-shirt printers who can put any design onto a T-shirt. These companies can even print other items such as bags, hoodies and aprons if you want to create something a bit different.
Make a Book of Memories
Why not make a personalised photo book for that special someone? This present is ideal for a traveller, a budding photographer or someone sentimental who cherishes photos of the people they love.
Fill an album with photographs from special occasions and happy times. Photo books are a great way to showcase all of those great photographs that get forgotten about.
All you need is a photo album and lots of photographs. You can have fun arranging the photos and even writing notes and captions.
Your recipient will love looking through the photo book and reliving the good memories.
Bake Tasty Treats
If your special someone loves to eat, why not bake them a gift? A home baked present is a real treat for any occasion.
With even the most basic baking skills, cookies are an easy choice and can be made to look beautiful. Use special cookie cutters such as hearts and flowers and decorate with coloured icing and decorations. You could even add their name for a personal touch.
Finish your home baked present off with a gift box wrapped with a bow. Your special someone will love the effort that you have put in and may even share the gift with you!
