When I hear the words Handmade and Personalised, I think of the time, effort, thought and skill that a person has put in to make a gift that’s unique and personal. A while ago, through my Make It Personal series, I had blogged about creating fun, personalised and unique gifts.
Though I’ve concluded the series on my blog, it’s been nice to see some interesting handmade gift ideas on other blogs. So, here’s a roundup of some exciting posts on handmade gifts.
DIY 1: Custom Instagram iPad cover
Asley Hackshaw of Lil Blue Boo makes this fun Instagram iPad cover. Choose pictures of your favourite fun and happy moments and make a custom iPad cover. It doesn’t even have to be pictures, it could be anything you like. View the tutorial here.
DIY 2: Light of my life
Kate of Kate Pruitt does an amazing job with this valentine light bulb. It’s aptly called ‘light of my life’. This one is my favourite. Check it out here.
DIY 3: Handmade hip diaper bag
Elizabeth Klett of A Mingled Yarn shows how to make a hip diaper bag for new mothers. I prefer this to the standard and staid ones available at most stores. Get more details here.
DIY 4: Clay jewellery dish
Lisa Storms at Fiskars has fun with colourful clay dishes that can store jewellery, keys and other odds and ends. Get the details here.
DIY 5: Vintage dog feeder
Julia Custer Norris of Handmade Green created this cute vintage elevated dog feeder. This one is a perfect gift for people with dogs or cats as pets. You can catch the tutorial at Design Sponge here.
