Gift giving is even sweeter when it is hand made with love and budget friendly! We have put together a top 5 DIY gifts that aren’t cheesey and anyone can create them. All you need is a few materials, and a little bit of time to create a “wow” factor gift!

Theme in a jar

Whether you’re thinking of Mother’s Day or your best friend’s birthday, going with a theme in a bottle will never disappoint! Think of the person and what they like (e.g., self care, foodie, crafty) then buy items that reflect your theme and place them in a big jar. This also challenges you to think of outside of the box and try to come up with small items to fit in a jar rather than a big basket. Take a look at these ides we came across on Pinterest, I mean let’s be honest, who wouldn’t love an “open bar jar”?!
