The word luxurious is often associated with another word: expensive. During the holiday season, it’s hard to cut corners and save money, especially when it comes to gift giving. This is all about to change though, thanks to our latest giveaway! Simple Gifts: 50 Little Luxuries to Craft, Sew, Cook and Knit is filled with fun, practical and, best of all, inexpensive items that you can create for someone you love.
This colorful guide is divided into seven chapters. The first chapter is unlike the rest because instead of providing tutorials and project ideas, it talks about the importance of the “wow factor” associated with gift giving. How often do we simply pick out a present without much thought for the recipient? This guide helps you break out of that rut and provides a personalized survey you can fill out for all of the people on your list. This chapter also includes fun ideas for gift wrapping – save money on wrapping paper and upcycle household items like pill bottles, mason jars and even suitcases.
The preceding chapters in Simple Gifts are filled with gifts you can knit, sew, craft and cook. All of these DIY ideas are extremely practical. For example, you can make a felted cat toy for your feline-loving friend or a foot soak for that person who is in need of a little TLC. You’ll even find a recipe for homemade granola. No matter what, there’s a homemade gift for every person on your list.
Don’t wait until the holiday season – start making simple yet luxurious DIY gifts now! By the time Christmas comes along, you’ll have a ton of ideas and creative crafts to give out to friends and family members.
Enter now for your chance to win! This giveaway ends April 24th.
