Six Ideas for Last Minute Hand-crafted Gifts
Whether you make them yourself or you support a local small business, hand-crafted gifts are loved by all! When someone takes the time to sit and create the gift (especially if personalized in any way), it touches the recipient a little bit more than a commercial, cookie-cutter gift.
The holidays can be stressful for all, but there are creators out there who live for this – you might be one of them! Taking advantage of local artists, crafters, and small business owners in your own town might just hold the ticket to that perfect gift you are looking for, and may not have even realized to consider.
There is still time to get that special gift you’re looking for!
Here are some ideas when shopping or creating hand-crafted gifts:
Six Ideas for Last Minute Hand-Crafted Gifts
Everyone enjoys opening something that has been personalized to them. It means the gift-giver really thought about what would make this gift special.
So many things can be personalized! Banks, keepsake boxes, picture frames, and the list goes on.
When personalizing a gift, think about what the recipient’s interests are. Take this soccer ball bank for example, hand-painted and personalized with her name, gifted to a young soccer lover.
- Hometown Pride
When you’re from the smallest borough of the biggest city in the world – you sure do take pride in where you come from!
When gifting a hometown pride gift or gift set, the recipient is reminded of their love for their hometown.
Local artists take a great deal of pride in the places they grew up. These Staten Island Gift Sets are just that – reminding us of the love we have for our community, hometown, and city while showing it off too. Hometown swag.
- Celebratory Gift
Has someone you know just bought a new house? Moved into a new apartment? Recently redecorated their home?
A hand-crafted gift can celebrate these milestones – like a coaster set. We’ve seen so many creative ideas when it comes to coaster sets from personalized sets with their name or mosaic sets that match their decor.
These coaster sets were made with a combination of tips #1 and #2 to represent neighborhoods the recipient lived in – and the mosaic coasters are a beautiful accent to any coffee table.
- Virtual Fun
With the crazy year we’ve had, it has become harder for us to get together with friends and loved ones.
But that doesn’t mean we can’t still do things together – we can create art while apart. Yaymaker is at the forefront of hosting live virtual events that anyone all over the world can join in.
Getting everyone together virtually for a private paint party is so much fun and everyone can be creative together.
- Can Coolers For The Ones Who Love Beer – Or Any Canned Beverage
Beer, soda, flavored seltzers – people love drinking their favorite beverages from a can. There’s a gift for them!
A custom, funny can cooler cozie will make the recipient smile while they sip their favorite beverage.
Bet you didn’t think of this one!
- From The Heart
‘Tis the season of giving and any gift received is a beautiful memory.
No matter what gift you give, it is given with love.
These Last Minute Hand-Crafted Gifts are from the heart to the heart.
We hope this post has given you a few cute ideas for those last minute gifts on your list.
