Christmas time is here – if you didn’t know by the cooler weather in Nevada County, you can’t miss the holiday lights and decorations up and down the streets of Nevada City. Broad Street is lit up with a festive look (**insert a million hearts here**).
I got into the holiday spirit early. My office took part in a Giving Tree to provide gifts to local Nevada County children in need. Here’s a look at the toys we amassed:
Anyhow, all that shopping got me thinking… is there any way to avoid the stores during the holidays and still find something for everyone, without relying on online shipping times? Especially for people who like to procrastinate, DIY gifts came to mind. A quick search on Google showed there are literally hundreds of different projects you can make that are useful and gorgeous – gifts that family and friends would probably LOVE to receive.
I curated a few of my favorites and posted the links and photos below. If you decide to dive into one of these DIY projects, let me know and send me a picture of how it turns out!
These Vanilla Bath Salts just take a few ingredients and a few minutes to make (and are super pretty for the person who needs pampering in your life).
Surprisingly pretty simple to make!
Fun to make – this would be great for newlyweds or grandparents / parents.
Loving the idea of a dime store candle holder + matte paint and a stencil.
If you’re making a set, feel free to throw in a few for me too!
