Why Leather Bracelets Make Great Gifts

When it comes to giving a gift for a special occasion, there can be no greater and thoughtful gift than Personalized leather bracelets. There are many reasons why this is so, here are just a few!

  1. Personalized bracelets offer a bit of sentimentality between the giver and receiver. There is a genuine joy when receiving this as a gift and the look on the recipient’s face can bring much joy to the giver as well. Depending on what type of personalization is made, it can be a reminder of a certain aspect or lifestyle that means a great deal to the wearer. They will cherish this gift forever, that can be assured.
  2. Leather bracelets are also quite fashionable. No matter what personalization is made, the bracelet is virtually guaranteed to be a fashion icon. The leather can be dyed literally any color that the wearer likes so it can be matched with any clothing whatsoever.
  3. Even though leather has been around for a long time, there is still something mysterious about it. There is an air of mystery about people who adorn themselves in leather which can be quite enticing.
  4. Personalized leather bracelets are very durable. Anything made from the flesh of animals is bound to last a long time. This is especially true when talking about leather and leather products. The leather bracelet is assured to last a long amount of time. This will be a gift which can even be passed down from generation to generation.

As you can see, there are many reasons why leather bracelets make a great gift. From the sheer beauty or handsomeness of them to the durability of the leather itself, there is no reason to NOT buy a leather bracelet for the loved one in your life.

Candies For Christmas

Since Christmas is a time to give the people in your life something that they will enjoy, consider creating a bouquet made of candy. These colorful creations can be made for any age, gender, and with any kind of candy that you think the person will enjoy. You can position the candies in a basket on craft sticks or arranged as a bouquet with crafts sticks, similar to what you would create using flowers.

The first thing to consider when you’re making candy bouquets would be the container that you’re going to use. For a Christmas bouquet, you want to use something like white, green, or red. Use a few flowers that are the same color or a few that are a contrasting color to the container. Try to find candies that are decorated with Christmas wrappers to keep with the theme. Think about whether you want to use large candies, smaller ones, or a combination so that you have everything you need to make your bouquet.

Using hot glue, connect each candy to a craft stick. The stick that you use should be large enough to support the candy but slender enough so that it can be hidden from view. Set each piece aside until it dries. Arrange your candies in a fun way or in a way that is charming and elegant depending on who will receive the bouquet. As you get more comfortable making these gifts, you can add your own personal touches to them as well as a few other gifts that you think the person would enjoy. Try to use candies that are age-appropriate. Think about any diet issues that the person faces, such as sugar-free or candies that are soft and easy to chew. Give your bouquet soon after you make it so that the candy stays fresh.

DIY holiday decorations

Talk about cost-effective gifts and do-it-yourself presents this holiday, here’s one project that I stumble from the Internet today. The project uses only one product that you can find at home – paper bags.

table mat

Using your basic grocery store paper bag, cut the bottom out and side to create one long piece of paper. Cut the paper into place mat shapes. Use paint to add decorative elements to the paper. (We used the end of a chopstick and gold paint to make a dotted effect!) – Photo and text from here.

I’m sharing the site here for other cool projects.

Who would have thought you can turn a lowly paper bag into something creative as table mats and many more.

I hope I can do my own DIY project using toilet paper rolls. I’ve been collecting them for more than a year now wishing that someday I could create a Christmas ornament with the help of my artistic kids. 🙂
