9 Beautiful Handmade Gifts You Can Give

I am about as far from crafty as you can get, but I love the warm fuzzies that handmade gifts give me. Handmade gifts are so thoughtful and special to both the gift giver and the recipient. And the best part is, you don’t have to be a craft goddess or a DIY queen to make any of these beautiful gifts.

Handmade Gifts

Floral Wreath

With our easy floral wreath tutorial, you only need a handful of ingredients to create this stunner. And the best part is, it dries beautifully so it’s a gift that gives year-round.


Twisted Candles

You don’t need to shell out big bucks for high-end trendy candles. All you need for this easy DIY are some taper candles and hot water.

Short on time? This fun project takes 10 minutes or less to complete. It’s a great option for those who aren’t so handy when left to their own devices with paint (🙋🏻‍♀️).


Floral Bath Salts

This gift is as useful as it is beautiful. Your gift recipient will love you just a little bit more each time they draw a hot bath and soak their worries away.

As someone who was recently on the receiving end of a beautiful dried floral arrangement, I couldn’t love this gift idea more. It’s the perfect gift for sitting pretty on your nightstand to add a bit of beauty to the room.

All you need for this simple DIY is a stack of white kitchen towels and fabric paint. Voila! You just saved yourself $$ and created an original work of art.


Botanical Wood Slices

A little wax paper, some botanical images printed off the internet and ta-da! Use them as coasters, wall art or even fridge magnets!
