Homemade gifts are frugal and have a lot of meaning. Check out these cool ideas that are pretty easy to create. The best part is that they look store-made.
Pottery Barn Inspired Kitchen Tablet Holder: Most of my cookbooks and recipes are now online so it’s nice to have a place to put your tablet while you are in the kitchen. It’s basically a newer version of the cookbook holder. This one is simply a cutting board, a Scrabble tile holder, and a triangle block. Then you paint and distress it! So easy and awesome!
Rice Neck Warmer: These are so simple and make a really nice gift. All you need is a nice, fabric, a sewing machine, and minimal skills. You can also add dried lavender and other herbs. Heat one of these in the microwave for a minute or two and put on a sore muscle or tummy.
Book Page Picture Frames: How easy and frugal is this? Go to The Dollar Tree and purchase a cheap frame. Rip small strips of pages of an old book and Mod Podge them to the frame. Get the tutorial and tips HERE.
Recipe Binder and Organizer: My husband made one of these for me years ago and it’s still one of my favorite possessions. It’s a personalized decorated binder, binder dividers with tabs (for difference recipe sections), and clean sleeves. I print my favorite recipes online and stick them into my binder. I also stick recipes cards in my binder. Hubs jokingly calls it our “family bible” because it contains our more precious recipes.
