If your loved one’s birthday or anniversary is coming up, instead of buying them some way too expensive gifts or cards, make them a sweet and simple handmade card or gift that will convey how much you appreciate having them in your life. It seems like lately we have all been running towards more and more materialistic things. Here are some really fantastic ideas for handmade gifts for your loved ones:

Name Letter Photo Collage


Sharing memories with your loved ones in the form of picture frames is pretty basic. But making a picture frame out of your loved ones name is what’s trending these days. Whoever is lucky enough to get a personally made photo collage of their name’s first letter or even full name will love it. You just have to buy a wooden letter from the market and the rest of it is really easy to make. Here is the step by step guide on how to make this.

Secret Stash Book


If you have a book lover in your life gift them a secret stash book in which they can keep things that they want to hide from others.  It is a fantastic idea because no one will think of looking for things inside a book and the person you gift this to will appreciate it immensely. Make a Secret Stash Book out of an old book that you don’t use anymore and for step to step instructions go here.

Photo Pendant


It doesn’t have to be any specific person in your life to gift this to. You can give this to anyone, your mother, your sister or your best friend. A pendant personalized with your pictures is the perfect gift. It will always remind whoever you gift it to, of the precious memories you shared together. And it will be even more appreciated when they realize that you made this yourself. For step by step instructions on how to make a picture pendant, go here.

It’s true what they say, “Simple is Beautiful”. You can make a simple card and then write what you feel about someone inside the card. I often make cards for the people I love.

Everyone wants to feel loved every once in a while and this is a great way to do so. Your words can make a lot of difference in someone’s life. It doesn’t take much time and it’s easy to make.

People like it when someone takes the time out of their schedule to make something for them, something that shows that they are appreciated. Trust me, try and do something for them. They will love you for it. I hope these easy to make DIY gifts for your loved ones were of some help to you.
