The Perfect DIY Gift That Anyone Can Make!

The perfect DIY gift that anyone can make doesn’t require a lot of materials, but it does require thought. You are probably wondering what in the world I’m talking about. Right?

First of all, think about someone that has made a substantial impact in your life. Who would that person be? A parent, grandparent, sibling, aunt, friend, teacher, coach, co-worker, or some other special person? 

Next, jot down 10 things you have learned from that person. Start with 10 main points then expand a little on each. Because this is such a personalized gift, take your time and really put some thought into this list. Once you have your list completed, write it or print it out onto a piece of quality paperNow it’s time to find a nice frame for your gift. (Don’t forget a picture hook if your frame doesn’t have one.)

10 Things I Have Learned From You As My DadProbably one of the nicest Father’s/Mother’s Day gifts is to tell your parents just how amazing and special they are. That’s exactly what happened to my boss this past Father’s Day. His eldest daughter surprised him with this DIY gift. As a result, he brought it to work and hung it up in his office where he could see it every day.

Another DIY Father’s Day gift given to my boss was one that all of his children had given him in 2012. Each of his five children traced their hand onto scrapbook paper that represented their favorite sport they were participating in at the time: football, soccer, basketball, volleyball and baseball.

Now, both pictures are hanging side-by-side on the wall across from his desk. 

10 Things I Have Learned From You

Below is a close-up of the list his daughter made; it truly made an impact on him. In addition, the list brought back great memories that the two have shared through the years. Consequently, his daughter relayed that she valued her father’s words of wisdom and advice. What father wouldn’t want to hear that?

Father's Day GiftTherefore, as you can see, The Perfect DIY Gift That Anyone Can Make really does live up to its name! Rather than spending money buying a gift for that someone special, consider making a personalized one instead.

In conclusion, probably anyone would love receiving a lovely DIY gift like this. Most of all, it’s a perfect DIY gift for any occasion or event (or, maybe a “Just because” gift)!

Have fun!

      Hi Jennie, I agreed with you. When my boss brought this into our office he was so touched that his daughter had made this for him. He is actually the one who suggested that I write a blog post about it. I think it really is a great personalized gift idea for anyone. Thanks for stopping by! Linda
