Have you been looking for homemade anniversary gift ideas you can really make? I have taken the heavy lifting out by doing the research for you! I found there are plenty of homemade gift ideas around, but not all are really suitable for wedding anniversary presents.
Why should you make your anniversary gift at home? A gift from the heart is always a good choice. Homemade gifts do not have to be overly complicated to make or tacky. Even if you lack skills in the craft area you can make a successful homemade anniversary gift.
Alright! I am going to share my favorite two homemade anniversary gift ideas with you. Both are quite simple. Even those of you who are unsure what the point of a glue-stick is, should be able to make these! Most likely you already have the needed material at home, even if you are not crafty. (yes that’s right…)
My favorite homemade anniversary gifts are – yummy bath salts and love messages in a jar. Both come under the “gifts in a jar” category. They are my favorites because they are easy to make, require no particular special skills and usually everything you need – you already have!
Bath salts are great. Why? Who doesn’t like a bit of pampering now and again. Sometimes heading over to the spa for a pampering isn’t always a viable option. But you can still give the gift of pampering and relaxation at home. Apart from glycerin (which is an optional extra) you probably have all the needed materials in your home. Bath salts make for a great adaptable gift. You can change the colors and flavors quite easily, all you need to do is use a different essential oil. Possibilities include lavender and citrus.
A close second is love messages in a jar. This requires a bit of planning on your part. The idea is that you write up lots of romantic love messages (365 to be exact!) and put them in a jar of love. You don’t have to come up with all of them yourself, anniversary quotes can be used for some of them.
The most important thing with homemade anniversary gifts is – do them well. After you have made the effort of making them – don’t let yourself down with sloppy presentation! Giving gifts in a careless manner is what gives homemade gifts a bad name – don’t turn your efforts into tackiness!
Enjoy your homemade anniversary gift creating! Happy Anniversary!
