  • 1. Monogrammed Sharpie Mug
You really could customize it however you’d like but I’m digging the idea of using stickers and then using your pen around them. Once you pull them off it looks really could customize it however you’d like.

  • 3. DIY Bath Bombs
 I take more baths than showers these days. If you like working in the kitchen, this might be the perfect gift idea for you. Once they’re finished, package them up in mason jars with a pretty ribbon.

  • 4. Photo Collage Monogram 
Mod Podge — A crafty girl’s best friend! Use it to make one of these clever picture monograms. You can buy the wooden letters from just about any craft store. I think this would look nice on a bookshelf or mantel. What a great idea for your bestie!

  • 5. Candy Bouquet
A bouquet of candy is the perfect gift for someone who is hard to shop for! Who doesn’t love candy, right? I like this idea for a teenager, or perhaps for dad on Father’s Day.

  • 6. Liquor Bouquet
This has got to be the ULTIMATE man gift — liquor bottles, cigars, beef jerky sticks, and shot glasses. Perfect for a 21st birthday! A smaller version in a large beer mug would also be nice.

  • 7. Custom Stepping Stone
A custom stepping stone (could even do something a little more simple by carving initials or doing handprints) would make for a nice house warming gift. The grandparents would love this, too!

  • 8. Gift In A Jar
You could do this for just about any occasion — a new mommy jar, a get well jar, a spa pampering jar, or anything else you can think up! Classy Clutter has quite a few good ideas and free printable labels.

  • 9. Gift In A Cup
Who couldn’t use an on-the-go insulated cup?! Fill it up with some of their favorite goodies (gift cards, drink packets, lip gloss, nail polish, candy, or anything else that will fit) and you’ve got a gift that works for just about anyone!

  • 10. Photo Pendants or Magnets
I’m thinking Mother’s Day or perhaps for a best friend’s birthday? They are actually really cheap (less than $2.50 each), and you could put a magnet on the back as an alternative to the pendant just in case they are not the necklace-wearing type.

  • 11. Pull-Out Photo Album
A great alternative to your traditional photo album! You can buy those little wooden boxes online, but they are also available at craft stores like Hobby Lobby. The rest is made with card stock and photos. I would call it a “memory box”.

  • 12. DIY Glitter Cup
Wondering how in the world she did that? It’s a double-walled cup! Don’t worry, you won’t be drinking the glitter. Starbucks sells them, but you can also find them at most department and home stores. I’ll bet you could also do this with photos. Hmmm.

  • 14. Homemade Body Butter
With just 3 ingredients you can make a homemade body butter that doubles as shaving cream and lip balm. It’s all natural, too! In the winter months, I can never get enough moisture; I would love to receive this as a gift.

  • 15. Homemade Soap
It’s easier than it looks! Turns out you can buy soap base that melts in the microwave, then you can add a few other ingredients to your liking (fragrance oil, coffee beans, etc.) and then pour the melted mixture into soap molds. How fun!

  • 16. Easy Monogrammed Soap Bottle
That monogram is actually on the inside of the bottle. It’s printed on transparent overhead paper and then interested into the bottle.

  • 17. DIY Mason Jar Candles
If you like melting stuff, this project is for you! I pretty much dig anything that has to do with mason jars, and I’ve always got a candle burning (I think I might keep Bath & Body Works in business these days).

  • 18. Homemade Extracts
This one takes some planning ahead (it needs to sit for 2-4weeks), but most of the work is just waiting. They can be added to baked goods for amazing flavor enhancement, but also look so pretty just sitting on the kitchen counter!

  • 20. Bath Goodies In A Washcloth
What a unique way to package up a few bath goodies! You could make this into just about any animal, too (maybe a bunny or kitten?). This way it doesn’t have to be Christmas themed.

  • 22. Secret Stash Book
What a fun surprise! Not just a book, but a secret place to stash your valuables, or just something pretty awesome to have hanging out on your bookshelf. You could also fill it with candy, money, bookmarks, or anything else practical for whoever you’re giving it to.

  • 23. Homemade Sugar Scrub
I can only imagine how good this must smell! I have this weird obsession with anything coconut; I’d probably end up eating it. But that’s ok because it’s actually edible and all natural. The instructions are easy and include those cute little labels for you to print out.

If you have grandparents or other relatives that live out of state, this is a fun and cute way to let them know how much they are loved! It’s so simple, but definitely a sweet and sentimental gift that they are sure to love.

  • 25. Creative Gift Wrap
Sometimes it’s all about the packaging! This is such a great idea for someone who is hard to shop for, like teenage boys. You just can’t go wrong with money and candy. And, it doesn’t get much easier than this.

  • 26. Bouquet of Suckers
30! I beg to differ. I happen to like the 30’s, but really this could work for any age. I think this is a fun and creative gift for a co-worker or sibling. You could also put the suckers in something that is usable like a coffee mug.

  • 27. Photo Tile Coasters
I’ve never seen this technique before, but I like it! I’ve always got nail polish on hand, and I have those same tiles left over from our bathroom renovation. I like how the photos don’t transfer perfectly, too. It gives them more of a vintage look and feel.

  • 28. DIY S'mores Kit
This is a super easy last-minute gift, and just about everyone loves s’mores, right? I like how this was put together with Teddy Grahams; makes it even cuter. Make a custom tag that says something like “Happy Birthday and many s’more!”.

  • 29. Stay-Put Elastic Bookmarks
Why is this the first time I’ve come across these? I’m not sure if you can buy them or not, but you can certainly make them. They mark your page and keep your book securely closed at the same time.  This would be a brilliant gift for a traveler and book lover!

  • 30. Bottle Of Memories
If you’re looking for something a little more personal or sentimental, this is it! Fill a bottle with mini items (doll house section of the craft store) that remind you of the person receiving the gift or of things you have both done together over the years. I LOVE this!

  • 31. Create A Magic Bottle
There really is something so magical about these, especially to little girls. You can fill it with glitter, sequins, plastic confetti, or anything else that sparkles. They are fun to shake and then watch as all of the stuff sinks to the bottom.

  • 32. Succulents In A Tea Cup
Succulents are my favorite plants, and they are really easy to take care of. Place a few in a tea cup for a charming gift idea! You could even easily customize the cup with oil-based Sharpies to make it more personalized.

  • 33. Framed Scrabble Tiles
I just plain like the idea of using scrabble tiles, I guess they are my new obsession next to wine corks. You could frame them with a quote, family names, or anything else you’d like. Such a neat gift idea!

That fun goop your kids have probably played with, you can clean with it too! What? Well, yes, it gets into all of those hard-to-reach nooks and crannies. Bonus: It’s really easy and fun to make! Could be an awesome gift idea for kids and adults.

  • 35. Monogrammed Journal
Customize a journal or book with alphabet stamps! I love the idea of writing or stamping on the page ends. Use a clamp or large binder clip to keep it closed while you’re stamping.
