Hello everyone! It’s been a while since I lasted posted and for this post, I have come up with a list of gift ideas that you can consider when preparing a gift for your friends or family for any occasion!
So I have been searching around for ideas to celebrate the coming Christmas, and as a student, there is certain amount of budget that I have to stick to. So DIY is usually the best, right? However, DIY can sometimes become a little messy and time-consuming. Around 3 years back, I tried converting an old book into a secret storage box for my friends. The idea sounded pretty cool and the instructions were pretty easy to follow. BUT, it was my worst nightmare omg, all the cutting and gluing was so messed up. If you wanna try, I will just include the link here. Good luck.
Mini Photo Calendar
This is an inexpensive handmade gift. I actually made one for my friend and it’s really easy. Just print the template and 12 photos or you can mix it up with handwritten messages to accompany that person for that month. Like, you know this is his/her exam period, you can add a motivational quote or message and for the next month, add a photo of you and him/her and a message below saying let’s meet up and have fun or something.
Try to print the template on construction card so that the calendar won’t be too flimsy.
This is one of the months of the photo calendar I’m making my friend. The handwriting is bad, I know. The photo is taken from a scene in Haikyuu Season 2, where the two guys are praying for their results. Haha. It sums up our life pretty accurately so I thought it was appropriate. This is customisable, anything that relates goes. No limits!
Another great gift is customizing a shirt, and again, you have the freedom of choosing what will be on your gift. But this time around, design it with that person’s photo. For example, if it’s father’s day, then pick a photo where he looks nice and add a caption: BEST DAD EVER. Pretty sure he would be happy. You can visit selfieunion to do this. There is no minimum order and there is free mailing within Singapore. You can also get a group of other friends to buy the shirt as well and contact them to ask for better pricing! You can do this through facebook, @selfieunion. Click on the link to follow them:) Btw, there’s no affiliate here.
Customised Tote Bags
Well, it’s the same thing as the shirts, just depends on your preference:) You can get this at selfieunion as well:)
If you have a sewing machine, this should be easy.
If you have been storing cardboard tubes from toilet rolls, this is 22 ways of using them.
Hope this list has given you some useful ideas that you can act on:)
