DIY Christmas Gift Idea For Significant Other


Why I love you mini album

Why I Love You Mini Album 

This is such a special gift that will be treasured for years to come. We have this tagged as a gift for a spouse or partner, but really, this is a gift that would be cherished by anyone. Make heart shaped pages, include a photo and write a short message on each page. This is a fun album to make for grandma or grandpa as well and each child can write a message.

DIY Christmas Gift for Teacher

Personalized Shaker Desk Magnet

Personalized Shaker Desk Magnet

We love this idea for a teacher appreciation gift any time of year, but it's also a great Christmas gift for a teacher or co-worker. Create a personalized shaker magnet that sticks to the teacher's desk. Make a generic one for all year round, or dress it up with a holiday themed tag.
