Moreover, you can get as creative as you want – typography, playing with colours, working with textures & patterns and more.

With a one-of-a-kind personalised DIY mug, paired with a quote or photo, it will be really thoughtful and will make any recipient feel special. So get your creative juices flowing. On a plain white mug and draw an artwork (you can even paint the celebrator) or scribble a message of your choice. Now bake the mug in an oven to strengthen the writing and you have an inexpensive, creative DIY gift in hand.

Handmade Chocolates & Cookies

A Personal Care Hamper

It can be a combination of some handmade + purchased things. Confused about what to put in a self-care basket? How about food, drink and spa-themed gift basket? Add something to drink (stress-relieving tea or instant coffee), something to eat (flavoured chips, spiced/roasted dry fruits, popcorn or pretzels) and something for pampering (face mask, bath bombs, homemade sugar scrub, etc.)
DIY Birthstone Bracelet
Each zodiac sign has a particular birthstone/gemstone. Adding a birthstone to the jewellery will give a personal touch and leave an everlasting impression. It will be symbolic, chic and beautiful. Buy a jewellery kit, choose the necessary materials, assemble them and add the gemstone the way it looks the best.
