Fear not… the Student Digz team has got you covered with a few creative ideas for making your very own DIY Christmas gift. Not only are they cheaper, but they’re extra personal too. Perfect for a mate, bae or even Mother Dearest herself.
We could all do with a bit of pampering after a rough year. A ‘home’ concocted beauty product is especially appreciated as it is made with love and know-how! Follow this link to view ideas for everything from DIY soaps and lotions to homemade conditioners and body scrubs.
- What you will need: Using just 7 ingredients: coconut oil, essential oils, arrowroot powder, beeswax, cocoa butter, liquid carrier oil and shea butter, you can create beauty care for the entire family!
If you’re a whizz in the kitchen, you’ll be able to create a number of tasty Christmas-themed treats that your loved ones will adore. Christmas cookies are always a firm favourite… but how about making your own edible snow globes?
- How – Simply bake up some yummy sugar cookies (butter, icing sugar, vanilla extract, flour, salt and chopped pecans) then roll them into sugar coated balls. Grab a small, empty jam jar and paint or stick some white dots around the edge. Using a bit of icing, stick a few cookies to the inside of the jar and add a few extras. Throw in a few white sprinkles and trinkets (a miniature reindeer and Xmas tree) and close. Add a red bow with a wish tag. Once you’re done, you’ll have a lovely Christmas surprise for someone special.
Get creative by making your own fashion essentials – from stencilled tote bags to paracord bracelets and everything in between. Add an edge of difference by personalising your gifts according to each person’s favourite colour and unique style.
This idea’s a winner for the person in your life who loves nothing more than a good dop! Simply buy a six pack of their favourite brew, and turn each bottle into a reindeer with the help of a few pipe cleaners, stick-on eyes and, of course, a big, red stick-on nose. VOILA. A simple, affordable gift transformed into something hilariously memorable in a matter of minutes.
