A lot of my childhood memories can be brought to life again simply by creating DIY Gifts crated from memories. DIY memory crafts are the best. I started with an old box, any box will do. Then I turned it into something really memorable with just glue, fabric, old buttons, rhinestones and other pieces of nostalgic scraps. DIY gifts are really the easiest to make because memories are not hard to find, so start with a happy one. Think about the person you are giving the gift to. What are their likes, hobbies or even your fondest memory of something you’ve done with them. What really makes it personal and special is making the gift box something unique based on experiences you’ve shared together. These DIY gifts are great for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Birthday’s and Holiday giving. Whatever the occasion, nothing will melt a heart more that a handmade present made from the past.
There really isn’t a gift that says more about how thoughtful you are of the recipient. It shows that you took time not just to remember but to make something for them that will trigger them to think of you and the cherished time spent making a DIY moment to last forever. Don’t forget to maybe use the theme of a funny memory too, as laughter is the best medicine for anything.
Gift boxes can be made from any type of box, crate or even a shoe box. DIY with anything you can think of, just do it! You’ll be so glad you did!
