We all have that one best friend that we absolutely love. The one that we don’t really want to just give something off the rack to. Since we are not all as rich as the Kardashians we can’t gift them vintage Chanel. What we can do though, is give them something personalized and made by our hands. This would show that you have taken time and effort to give them something special. Being a best friend is hard, but here are some DIY gifts for your best friend to make it a little easier.
1. A DIY Party:
There is nothing more wonderful than throwing your favorite person a fabulous party. It doesn’t have to be extremely expensive to throw a party. Here is an article that talks about throwing a party when you have limited time. Honestly, how affordable a party depends on where you are getting your funds and where you are spending them. Usually, a house party that is BYOB (Bring your own booze) doesn’t require that much effort or money and is extremely fun. All you have to do is have some good music, speakers and invite some fun people.
2. DIY Coupons
We know this is extremely mainstream but a few handmade coupons are always a little exciting. You can make coupons with almost any kind of activity, free drinks, massages, even phone-free sessions. Coupons are the ultimate personalized gift because you know exactly what your best friend wants and you can use these to show them how well you know them. Personally, I have tested out coupons as gifts and my friends have always used and appreciated them. Sometimes, kind of misused them too, so be careful what you are committing to.
3. DIY Cookies or Food
If you and your friends are anything like my group of friends then you are definitely foodies. Truth is you don’t always have to take your friends out to eat, you can just as easily cook or bake them something. I personally love some homecooked cookies and cakes. It’s okay if you don’t know how to bake, there are plenty of recipes on YouTube that teach you how to make cakes in the microwave and the results are amazing. You can also cook them meals, like pasta or if you are like me Mexican is the way to go.
4. DIY Cards
This is definitely a classic. Cards have been the ultimate gifts for a long time. But you don’t have to just write some words on a piece of paper. There are many DIY cards tutorials that are online and are extremely creative. That’s the best part about cards, they can be as simple or as difficult as you like them to be. Moreover, if you don’t like showing your emotions too much, it’s the perfect way to tell your best friend how much you appreciate them.
5. DIY Gifts Basket
This is an easy way to show your best friend how well you know them. A gifts basket can be of any theme, it can be self-care or even food, it can be beauty or travel. The DIY gifts basket can be as customized as you want it to be and can have store-bought products as well as handmade products. It’s one of those quick and easy gifts that look like they took forever to make. The truth is, everyone loves a basket full of goodies, so go give your best friend just what they need.
There is an endless number of possibilities when it comes to gifting, and we will be kind enough to make a list of products you can buy too. Always cherish your friendships because they are what make you stronger.
