Easy Handmade DIY Gifts

Today, I’m sharing some easy handmade gifts that don’t take loads of time or materials.  Even if you aren’t a crafter, these DIY gifts are simple and fun to make.

You may even have the materials for several of these already!

1 Photo Blocks – Mine only had one photo, but of course, you could add more. This is a cute gift for new parents (or any parents!)  Or use vintage photos and vintage style paper, or vacation photos… Lots of possibilities here.

2.  Memory Display Box –  A display box with photos and memorabilia is a simple way to gift someone with memories.  This one included an old license plate and some coins from the person’s birth year.

3.  Accordion Book Very simple to make and fun too.

4.  Handmade Journal (Gratitude Journal, Planner, Diary) This simple little book is made from half of an inexpensive composition notebook!  This one with the flowered paper would be great for a tween or teen. Change the paper to create a customized one for anyone who loves to journal or needs a notebook.

5.  Victorian Paper ConesMake these with papers that suit the holiday or the giftee.  Fill with treats!

6.  Stamped Tumbled Tile Coasters:  These can be as varied as the rubber stamps you have.  Try using quotes or verses, as well as images.  Tie them up with some organza ribbon for a nice presentation.

Have fun making the gifts!

  1. These are beautiful! I knew a woman who started a small business on accordion books. It didn't go far but I could see how it would with the right marketing.
