DIY Gift Idea #1

Posted by Olivia Jayne at 00:00
Hey guys,

I have decided to start a small series on gift ideas. I'm not sure how often I'll do these posts but I am starting to get more into the idea of personalising my presents. Let me know if you like these posts and I'll be sure to do more.

So my older sisters birthday is coming up and she always gets me great presents but this year, I really wanted to think more about the perfect present rather than spending my money on clothes or something like that for her. I wanted my present to be more personal so heres what I got her.

Firstly, I got a mason jar from Walmart for around $8. I got quite a large one because I'm going to be filling it with lots of gifts. The one I got her has a handle and a straw. Ideally, it wouldn't have but it was the only larger one I could get. Then to the mason jar, I did some DIY to it to make it look nicer and more present like. In the picture it is not like that thought because I hadn't done it yet. I kept in mind the colours of her room because I thought that she may want to use it for cute storage in her room rather than as a drinking cup. For more detail on how I did it like this, see my DIY on it which I'll link here.

Then I went to Walmart for small gifts to fill it with. I wanted the gifts to be quite thought out so I knew she'd like them but these small things are presents that I'm sure most people will love. I bought some Ice Breakers because I'm English and they are not available in England and I know she'll like them. I also got another Eos for her. Previously, I've got her the strawberry sorbet one which I know she loves so I got her another one in Sweet Mint. I also picked her up a red lipstick from Maybelline and a lip liner to go with it because she has really wanted a red lipstick and always borrows mine. I also got her a coconut face mask because she loves coconut and also a Burts Bees Lipbalm in Coconut and Pear.

As for from other shops, I also got her a Bath and Body Works Coconut Hand Sanitizer and the Twilight Woods body mist as well as a Mac eyeshadow palette in Smokeluxe because she loves Mac but has too many other things to spend her money on. I also got her the Popcorn lip scrub from Lush.

I really hope she loves her gift and I'm sure she will. I think this is a really cute, personal gift and I know that I'd love to receive it. I also like the fact that it is full of little things because I personally like to get lots of little things rather than one big thing. If you try out this gift idea, let me know what you put in your mason jar and if the person likes it. I'm sure they will!
