I have always made homemade gifts for my family and friends for Christmas and this year is no different for me. Lately with the way the economy has been I have been hearing that many others have decided to do the same.
Personally I like to personalize my gifts for the person I am giving it to. Here are a few photo albums I have made that were super simple and easy to do.
I call them my "re-created" gifts. They are the dollar albums you can find at most Craft stores. I pull out the front and back and create my own design depending on who I will be giving the album to and then slip them back in. These albums have 12 sleeves so they will hold 24 pictures!
They make super gifts to give empty so that they can put in the photos they want or give them filled with pictures!
I make them for grandparents and fill them with photos of my family from throughout the year. They love them.
These two are for new parents in my family. Every new parent should have a brag book they can carry with them!
I even made a few for my daughter to give to her friends. They are forever taking pictures of each other. She thought that she would put in a few photos that she had of them and then let them put in the rest!
They would even make great teacher gifts. This one is for my daughters craft teacher – she is leaving in January to have her first baby. How exciting. We made this one for her and will package it up with a few other things she might need.
I hope you are enjoying my ideas for Gift Giving this year!
