When it comes giving a gift a friend or someone special it is always important to give something special as well. There nothing that comes close to special than a handmade personal gift. A gift that you bought off a shelf from a store is probably going to sit on another shelf of your friends home or in a cupboard or even worse thrown away after a few months. You need to look for something unique, something special; something that they should think was made especially for them. Here are some reasons why handmade is the best.
You always want to give away gifts that are one of a kind and not things that a cliché. For example if you are giving wedding invites at Life is Peachy and all the invites are handmade. Don’t you think that your invitation would look really one of a kind that an ordinary invite. Chances are people will talk about the invitation card even after the engagement. When making a cards for people even if you make same design you not be able to get same curve or cut exactly the same as you did before. This is why it is unique.
Nothing is more special than something that is personal. When making handmade gifts you can choose your color, the style and everything that the person loves to be in it. Let say you are making milestone baby cards and you add a little favorite design that their parents like and something that relates to their baby. They will probably keep near the table next to the baby. Why? Because it is personal and relatable for the family.
Let’s face it making something is hard but it is fun. The pleasure in the creative process is just unimaginable. Everything from planning through to the finish is different and that is what makes it interesting. On top of that it is all made of love. You don’t just go out of your own way and take some time off to sit and mess around some items just for a random person. You do it for someone special and the effort you put into making it is all out of love. This makes both the gift and the person who receives it feel special on a different level.
It is cost effective in one way as well. Buying handmade gifts are expensive from the shops but making them on your will actually cost less than buying. Although making is cheap always makes sure that your gifts are of high quality and just some scrap put together if you want to make it last.
