DIY Gift Guide

With the holiday season in full swing here on 204 Park I thought I'd share some of my favorite ideas for DIY gifts. DIY gifts can be the greatest gifts. They're handmade, thoughtful and unique and usually for the gifter- a lesser expensive option than buying a gift; because the holidays can get expensive! Am I right?!

So, in the season of showing that you care and saving some cash while you're at it, I thought I'd round up eight of my favorite DIY gift ideas both from 204 Park and from a few others. Happy crafting! XO

One: Whip up a few of these leather trinket trays for a fabulous gift perfect for storing keys, jewellery or all sorts of pretty baubles and bits!

Two: For the gold lovin' person on your list all you need is a few rolls of ribbon, some glue and a hanger for this fashionable DIY. Why not make a few and wrap them with ribbon?!

Three: All natural, delicious smelling and so moisturising, these handmade lotion bars are the best! I use mine daily and they'd be so cute wrapped in cello and tied with a ribbon. Voila!

Four: It is winter after all so why not give the gift of warmth with this cute pearl embellished toque.

Five: Who doesn't love a hot chocolate kit? This is the perfect hostess gift.

Six: What can I say, I really like hot chocolate (haha) and these sticks would be perfect little stocking stuffers or gifts for your neighbours or co-workers with a mug and maybe some bailey's or kahlua on the side ;)

Seven: For the Kate Spade obsessed, create these Kate Spade DIY folders for less than $10. Yes please!!

Eight: Sage simple syrup for the foodie/hostess in your life who loves to try unique new flavors. Just in time for holiday cocktails!
