Another holiday is coming up and you’re dreading the thought of going to a store to buy gifts. I can help.
First, take a deep breath. Grab yourself something to drink and let me give you some suggestions for a wonderful, unique, handcrafted item your loved one will love!
You’d be surprised how many amazing gifts you can get for less than ten dollars!
Mug wraps come with a mug, and you can add a gift card to your favorite coffee shop. They also make good grad gifts for coffee lovers. Several designs are available, or you can have it personalized with someone’s name or initials.
Keychains come in a multitude of designs and are a perfect “something extra” to add to a gift card.
Lip balm holders are great for kids or adults. They come in all sorts of designs and can clip onto a backpack or purse for easy accessibility.
Car holders are the perfect gift for the little one in your life. They easily attach to a bag so they don’t get lost, and each one has a toy car included for a gift that is ready to play with.
Pencil toppers come with a pencil and are available in many designs. Great for “kids” of all ages.
Bracelets are fun for kids and adults and have a “slide on” charm that can be interchanged with others. Many designs are available, including princesses, sports, and popular characters.
Embroidered toilet paper is truly a unique gift and there are several designs to choose from.
Gifts in this price range are perfect for Easter baskets, graduation gifts, or a present for your favorite coworker.
Hanging dishtowels and hand towels are appreciated by everyone and are useful gifts.
Finger puppets encourage creativity and are an alternative to electronic gifts.
Tic tac toe games are a perfect item to add to an Easter basket and help pass the time while traveling or sitting in a doctor’s office.
Pillowcases are a nice, practical gift that can also be fun since they are available in a wide range of designs, including coloring pillowcases, which encourage creativity.
In the past few years, “adult coloring books” have become a popular trend. Personalize your gift with a band that wraps around the book to hold colored pencils or pens. This would be a wonderful graduation gift for someone heading off to college. Choose from many different styles!
Larger lip balm holders come in many different shapes and include the round lip balm. This would be a great teacher gift as well.
Need a new baby gift that is unique? How about a birth announcement ornament? It has all the birth information on it and can hang in the baby’s room or as a tree ornament every year. A lovey is a comfort item for children and some have teething corners on them as well. They are easy for little hands to hold onto.
There is a lot to choose from in the $25-50 range! Of course, you could always go back to previous categories and select more than one goodie from there, as well!
Hooded towels are great for everyone, from infants to adults. They come with a wide range of designs and colors.
Towels (including beach towels) can be embroidered with a name or design. These make a practical and fun gift, and are especially great for graduating seniors as they head off to college so they can keep track of their items.
Tote bags can have names and designs embroidered on them and are always a useful gift. I have several waiting for the perfect design.
Laundry bags are wonderful for the recent graduate. No more bringing laundry home for Mom to do. (Well, I can’t promise that but we can hope J)
Pillow pals are another great gift for all ages. They open flat to function as a pillow and snap together as a “pal”. Lots of designs to choose from in this category as well.
Reading pillows are a wonderful way to encourage the reader in your life. They have a “pocket” on the front where you can add a book. So many choices for designs and sayings.
Embroider buddies are stuffed animals that can be embroidered on and can be personalized with names, designs, birth information…the sky is the limit.
Cheer bears come with a cheerleader outfit for your Viking or Packers fan.
Framed embroidered sayings and personalized messages are a great gift for any occasion. These are especially wonderful for grandparents when their grandchildren’s names are included. They also make an excellent wedding gift that can be personalized with the couple’s names and wedding date.
Spa bags are cute and fun presents. Use them for makeup, toiletries, or anything else you wish.
Compact mirrors are great for making sure you still look your best on the go!
Clutch purses made with special character fabric are a unique gift that will be treasured by the self-proclaimed nerd in your life. Fabrics include designs such as Harry Potter, Star Wars and Black Widow
Need a super special new baby gift? How about a stuffed animal or pillow that has the baby’s birth information embroidered on it? This is a gift sure to please any new mom and will be treasured for years to come.
Purses and handbags are unique gifts made with special “character” fabric such as Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Black Widow. If fabric exists with your favorite character, you can request a custom bag.
Have someone on your list who is always cold? Shawls are the perfect answer. Made with super soft minky, they even have pockets!
Many quilts are available in a variety of sizes and styles and would be a wonderful gift for that very special person on your list.
Custom quilts are available as well.
I hope that these suggestions will make your next gift-giving experience more pleasant and less stressful.
