When I'm buying for someone that I'm not too sure about what to get them, I either do one of the following:
- Buy them something unique, like from Etsy, the Museum of Modern Art, or Uncommon Goods
- Buy them something unique to Maui, where I live
- Buy them something I would want, like a makeup set from Sephora or a scarf from Anthropologie
- Or make them something
My "make something" repertoire isn't that amazing. I like simple projects that don't take a whole lot of time. And I LOVE using materials I already have on hand. That's bonus points in my book.
Here are some real gifts I've made for people. They are functional, pretty cute in my opinion, don't take forever to make, and are fairly easy.
Silhouette ornament of a friend's dog
Oven mitt - this one was probably the hardest, but I've gotten better at it.
Simple tote or reusable shopping bag
A painting I'm working for a friend this year! Can you tell what it's going to be?
