It’s someone’s birthday! This could be your spouse, or child, or another close relative. Perhaps it’s your best friend, or a co-worker. You’d like to get a gift, but funds are limited. Or, you want to give something special and unique, memorable, or long lasting. This could either be something made by you, or put together in some fashion by you. Let us discuss some ideas for creative birthday gifts.
First of all you need to consider the type of person that will receive the gift. The type of gift will depend on the gender, age and his/her likes and preferences. You need to come up with something creative that s/he will like.
Gift baskets are probably one of the most popular DIY gifts one can choose. You can put in miniature boxes of favorite candies or small packages of cookies, plus CDs, DVDs, gift cards, or make a basket more personalized. For the gardener, a planter filled with gardening tools, gloves, and seed packets makes a great gift basket.
Another good idea is to give a surprise admission ticket to an event, such as a concert. If your guy and his friends are into sports, or a certain sport, arrange a night out for all of them at a ball game. How about a few art classes for your friend who has always wanted to paint?
If you want the creative birthday gift to be something made or created by you, there are plenty of unique ideas to be found online. For a friend, find out her absolute favorite colors and tie-dye a tee shirt with those as the prominent colors. If you’re good at woodwork you could create a furniture item such as a bookcase. Another good idea is to order a personalized item featuring your loved one’s favorite artist, or his/her pet. This could be anything, such as a mug, a poster or a key chain.
As long as you keep the recipient in mind, the gift you choose or make should be sure to please. There is no need to spend a lot of money. You just need to be innovative and loving, and you will surely come up with some great and creative birthday gifts.
