Birthdays, Holidays or just because – a DIY gift always means so much more! Be inspired by over 20 DIY gift ideas to fit any budget or skill level, as seen on TIDBITS.
I had such a blast exploring and sharing ideas for my “HANDMADE HOLIDAYS” blog series, and wanted to round them all up for you here to give you a better idea of all the fun DIY gifts you can make to delight anyone.
I’ve also dug through my archives to find long time favorites to add to the list that will surely keep growing! My husband and I have enthusiastically been making gifts for our family and friends since we were newlyweds, and find so much joy in gifting something they cannot just go and buy in the store.
I hope you find just what you are looking for to make for that special someone!
OVER 20 DIY GIFT IDEAS
Bath bombs are surprisingly easy to make, and so much better for you than ones found at the store full of artificial fragrance and dye. Kids and adults alike will truly enjoy this special gift. We love to hide little surprised in the middle for kiddos!
I claimed this gift to be the perfect gift for anyone on your list! He, she, big or little, they will love it! Make a personalized set for a whole family and they will thank you for it!

Who couldn’t use more kitchen towels?! Pick a cute cookie cutter depending on the season, and stamp your towels for a one of a kind design from the heart.

I teamed up with my sister to provide a package deal kind of gift. She will show you how to make pure vanilla extract even if you forgot to start it 6 months ago! With the Instant Pot you can have instant, flavorful vanilla extract! So amazing! She has provided all the combinations you can imagine, and I have all the printables you will need.
If you want to get really fancy with your extracts, we went overboard on flavors and style.
These chalkboard/whiteboards are a super sweet gift for kids or to hang on the wall for reminders and lists.
This should be a must have near every bedside and desk. The perfect holder for watches, glasses and cell phones.

Gift a beautiful journal to help write down goals, dreams, and and give the freedom to be inspired!
If you love to sew, someone will love a darling pom pom pillow, made with lots of love!
