DIY Gift Ideas that are Easy for Seniors to Make

Christmas is just around the corner and so is your indispensable familial obligation to gift your loved ones with presents. There is no doubt that the thought and effort behind presents will always triumph over pecuniary standards. With that being said, DIY or “do it yourself” presents are relatively good options to consider. Sure, it’s cheaper but the effort and creativity that you will be putting into making it will no doubt show your loved ones how much you love them. Here at Boca Raton Assisted Living in Courtside Gardens, we take pleasure in aiding our residents with their crafting hobbies, making DIY gifts included! To get you started, here are some gift ideas to get you started with your gift preparations.

Milk Candles

Creamy milk candles packed with sweet aromas are great gift ideas. Start by putting scents like lavender and vanilla into the melted wax. Furthermore, try adding an aesthetic element to it, by filling the melted wax into creative glasses. Quirky candle handles and ornamental goblets may do the trick!

Mugs with glitter bottoms

Do you have any little granddaughters who might love sparkly things? First, cover a third of an ordinary-looking mug with glue. Then, dip the glued part into colored glitters, like gold or pink. Finally, watch your little princess feel more glamorous as she sips her milk or juice.

Birthstone Bracelets

Gathering the materials needed is the hardest part of this craft, and that’s an overstatement as the things needed are relatively easy to find. Find birthstone beads that are readily available almost anywhere and loop through them with strings. Moreover, make your craft even better by adding some personal touches. This will make your gift feel more personal. There you have it, a bracelet that’s easy, cute and customizable.

Painted Wooden Bowls

Beautify wooden bowls with small painted designs. Consider painting patterns that involve polka dots, stripes and flowers. Also, don’t forget though that your imagination is the limit here. Of course, paint whatever you find artistic!

Fabric Tote bags

Hand-sew a tote bag for carrying make-up, groceries, gadgets and many more. Even more, you may customize the bags further by choosing a fabric that you think would best match the style of the person you’re gifting it to.

Custom Laptop Case

Most of your loved ones own laptops these days. So why not consider creating special laptop cases for your family who’s always on the move. To make things easier, you could just buy ready-made laptop bags that are blankly designed. Once you have them, start going crazy by sewing in whatever design you like. It could be their names, decorative ornaments, cute shapes and more.
