  • In this video I will show you ten adorable gift ideas that everyone would love to receive.

  • These are perfect for Christmas, birthdays or any other occasion. Investing time and

  • thought in presents is really what turns a little present in something big and meaningful,

  • because it shows that besides the object you're also giving a lot of love.

  • Hey loves! December is just around the corner and I'm so excited about the Christmas lights,

  • yummy food and hanging out with friends and family. But this is also the time when we

  • stress out about the Christmas gifts. But don't you worry, guys, because I've got you

  • covered. In this video I'm going to show you ten affordable and epic DIY Christmas gift

  • ideas that you can make for your loved ones. These are also perfect for birthday presents

  • all year around and of course you can totally just DIY them for yourself. I'm not going

  • to lie, I'm probably keeping one, two or five gifts for myself. Okay, I hope you guys are

  • excited, take your crafty spirits out and let's get started.

  • For someone that loves ice cream and deserts, an ice cream sundae box is a perfect gift!

  • To make it you need a gift box and a bunch of ice cream related things like cones, cups

  • and toppings like candy, sprinkles, honey, ice cream scoop, little spoons and decorations.

  • Now we have to package everything nicely. For the cones, take some cellophane and roll

  • it like that to make a cone shape. Secure it with a piece of tape. Put in a few ice

  • cream cones and make a bow on top using ribbon. Pretty cute, right?! Next let's make three

  • little bags of sprinkles. Here I have blue colored sugar. I also have this beautiful

  • colorful confetti. Yum! In the third bag I'll pour a bunch of pearl confetti. To decorate

  • the bags cut a small piece of colored cardboard paper, fold it in half and punch it on the

  • bag with stapler. This makes the bags look so festive and pretty. I think packing the

  • cone and toppings into the DIY packages adds so much to this gift box. Fill the box with

  • other ice cream related goodies like this ice cream scoop. You can fill the handle with

  • sprinkles! When you make yourself an ice cream you can quickly add some sprinkle yummines

  • on top of it. So cool, right? I also got these three little jars, which I decided to fill

  • in with some sugar covered chocolate candy, gummy worms and honey. You can use different

  • dressings like chocolate or caramel sauce. And of course besides candy you can use chocolate

  • chips, crushed cookies or chopped nuts, dried fruits and chopped dark chocolate for a bit

  • healthier options. Just think about the favorite snacks of the person the box is for. I'm adding

  • two little notes in the box as well. On the first one I wrote Ice cream sundae in a box

  • and on the other, bon appetit and I added a raffia hanger to both. To make sure the

  • spoons won't scatter all around the box, let's tie them together and make a bow. We are finally

  • ready to put all these goodies into the box! I think it looks extra cute if you add some

  • tissue paper on the bottom – I scrunched two pink pieces and popped them in. You can

  • make so many different thematic sundae boxes. If you're making it for someone that eats

  • very healthy you can put in a bunch of different yogurt toppings, like granola, crushed nuts,

  • seeds and so on. The options are endless. I think an ice cream sundae box like this

  • will put a big smile on the face of whoever you'll give it to.

  • Pimping up plain clothes is a great way to make amazing gifts at affordable price. Here,

  • I transformed a plain sweater into the most adorable cat sweater everyone would love.

  • All you need to make it is a plain sweater that you can get for very cheap, scissors,

  • pink and black felt, ribbon and fabric glue. Start by outlining the animal you are going

  • for. I decided to make a cat so I need a pair of pointy ears, eyes, nose, mouth and whiskers.

  • Cut all the shapes out. Be creative and make other animals of your choice, like a dog or

  • bear for example, you can have so much fun designing the sweater. For the nose I am cutting

  • a little pink heart from a light pink piece of felt, just to make our kitty cat sweater

  • even more cute. Here's how it looks when we put all the pieces together. Hmm... something

  • is missing – a little pink bow, so let's quickly make one from a piece of ribbon. Place

  • the ribbon around the pointer and the middle finger and lead the bottom end up and through

  • the opening between the two fingers. Tie both ribbon ends together in a knot. Take the bow

  • off your fingers, trim away the excess ribbon and you are done. These ribbons can be used

  • for so many DIY projects but today we are using one as a fashionable accessory to our

  • kitten. All we have to do now is glue the pieces onto the sweater. Fabric glue is completely

  • washable and should last many years. I am so pleased with how this cat sweater turned

  • out! Making a present like this is so much better than just buying a fancy expensive

  • piece of clothing in a store. It really shows that you took time and put effort into creating

  • a present for someone you love. Plus it's way cheaper for you! This is such a fun and

  • easy diy project that you can totally make for yourself as well.

  • A great Christmas or birthday gift idea for any age is this beautiful picture frame. You

  • need an inexpensive picture frame, acrylic paint, paint brush, glue and some fake flowers.

  • Fancy picture frames can be quite expensive, while you can get such plain ones for a dollar

  • or two and you can pimp them up yourself. I decided to color the frame in green and

  • then decorate it with artificial flowers. If you are giving it away for Christmas you

  • can switch the color to red and decorate it with snowflakes for example. But I wanted

  • to make a frame that you can have on your night stand all year around. I applied two

  • coats of paint to get it nice and opaque. Wait for a few hours or until it is completely

  • dry and we are ready to glue on some flowers. You can buy such fake flowers on the internet

  • for super cheap. I still have a lot left from my hair accessories and school supplies tutorials,

  • remember? I put five flowers on two corners of my frame, but you can stick them all around

  • the frame if you prefer. In any case the picture frame will turn out gorgeous! Put in a picture

  • of you and whoever you are giving this frame toyour friend, mom, grandma and I guarantee,

  • you will melt their heart. I mean... who wouldn't be absolutely blown away by receiving such

  • a special and thoughtful gift. Every time they will look at this beautiful picture,

  • they will remember how lucky they are to have such a special person in their lifeyou.

  • Every chocolate lover would be thrilled to receive these home made chocolate bonbons.

  • They are very quick and so much fun to make. You need some silicone molds, chocolate and

  • toppings like sprinkles and mixed nuts. First we need to melt the chocolate. I’m doing

  • that in the microwave so I have to break the chocolate into the microwaveable cups. I have

  • some milk and some white chocolate. Yum, yum! You can also melt your chocolate over the

  • stove. Once the chocolate is melted, pour it into the mold – I have this heart shaped

  • one, but you can find so many other cool designs in a store. Flatten the chocolate with a spoon

  • and then add toppings of your choice. I have some shredded coconut, chopped hazelnuts and

  • sprinkles for the first three. I want to make more than that so here comes another row of

  • chocolate yumminess. Here I am also using some blue sugar and pines. Let’s now make

  • some white chocolate bonbons. Wait what?! I figured that I overcooked mine, so white

  • chocolate rest in peace. But we're not going to stress about it for too long because I

  • have some milk chocolate left. Leave them to cool completely, you can also put them

  • into the fridge for a while. Time to take these babies out of the molds! Look at this

  • perfection! OMG I'm so proud of myself right now. Totally tapping myself on the shoulder,

  • no shame. They look so professionally made, right? I'm gonna try this one. No girl these

  • are not for you, these are for the gift, they look so good I just wanna eat them. Put them

  • in a jar or a pretty gift box. Decorate it with some ribbon to make it more festive!

  • You can personalize it for a friend that you are making them for. For example if that person

  • is all about healthy living use 70% chocolate and top the bonbons with healthy stuff like

  • nuts and goji berries. These are such a yummy and awesome gift.

  • Ear hats are a huge trend and you can actually make them yourself! I'm going to show you

  • how. All you need is an inexpensive hat, two buttons, thread and a needle plus some yarn.

  • First we need to make two pompoms. Wrap the yarn around the palm of your hand about hundred

  • times. Trim the excess and take the yarn ball of your hand. Take a short piece of yarn or

  • thread and wrap it around the yarn ball tightly. You end up with this bow shape. With scissors

  • cut through the loops on both sides. The bow shape is gone and we end up with a fluffy

  • yarn ball. Time to make our pompom nice and rounded so just have fun with scissors and

  • play with it until you are satisfied with how it looks. There we gothis one is

  • looking pretty posh! But since all the animals have two ears, we have to make the second

  • pom pom, which has to be of the same size as the first one. Our two balls of fluffiness

  • are ready and we can attach them to the hat. Thread your needle and make a couple of stitches

  • for each of the ears. If you want you can just use fabric glue. Since my pom poms are

  • quite big and heavy I figured that sewing will probably work best for me. Make a final

  • knot inside the hat, snip away the excess thread and the first ear is done. Do the same

  • for the other one. Just by adding ears, this hat looks so much prettier than before, right?!

  • You can totally finish here or you can give our bear a face like me. For the eyes I am

  • using a couple of white buttons to match the ears. Sew them on a hat using black thread,

  • which will represent the pupils. Besides being an awesome gift idea, this project is also

  • great for up-cycling your old hats and refreshing your winter wardrobe. I will definitely make

  • another one for myself if I give this hat away because I just love it so much. For the

  • nose and mouth I am using yarn and fabric glue. Make a little oval shape for bear's

  • nose and a wave for the mouth. Here we have it, our mister bear hat all done and looking

  • epic. This DIY is really inexpensive, but so unique and special. The lucky person who

  • receives a gift like that will surely feel special and appreciated.

  • You know what guys I was thinking that none of my friends have birthdays in the next days

  • and I am feeling pretty hungry so I am just going to dig into the ice cream box. I have

  • to give it a little quality control to make sure it's good enough as a gift, right? I

  • am taking two scoops of raspberry sorbet which is so good! A little whipped cream never hurt

  • nobody, so let’s put it on top. Time for the toppings! I’m going for some honey first,

  • because raspberry sorbet can be quite sour and we need to balance it out with sweet honey.

  • We also have to check out how the sprinkle scoop works! Mmm nice, I'm going to mark it

  • as approved. All we need now is somecor and an ice cream spoon. How pretty is this

  • snowflake! You can make decorations like these yourself. Cut some shapes of your choice from

  • colored paper and stick them on a toothpick. After a quality control has been performed,

  • I can totally approve this ice cream box as a perfect gift for any occasion! I Love it!

  • Happy Birthday!

  • If you need some small and inexpensive presents to give to your friendsthese candy bonbons

  • are perfect. To make them you'll need some candy, ribbon, cellophane, tape, toilet paper

  • roll, wrapping paper and scissors. Start by wrapping the craft paper around the roll and

  • secure it with a piece of tape. Fold the extra paper on the sides inside the roll like this.

  • Pop the candy of your choice into the opening. Take your cellophane and wrap it around the

  • candy roll. Secure it in place with tape. Make two ribbon bows on the sides and you

  • get a perfect bonbon shape. How cute are these!? Make a bunch of different colors and give

  • them to your best friends or you can use them as stocking fillers. Easy, inexpensive and

  • totally adorable little gifts, I am in love!

  • Anyone that loves beauty and likes to pamper herself would be happy to receive this moisturizing

  • body scrub. You need a bowl, a jar, essential oil, food coloring, sugar and coconut oil.

  • Pour quarter of a cup of melted coconut oil into the bowl and add a cup of sugar. Add

  • a few drops of essential oil, I am using peppermint and mix in a bit of blue food coloring. Mix

  • the ingredients together really well. If you need to you can still add sugar or oil at

  • this point to get the perfect consistency. Pour the scrub into a jar. To make the gift

  • prettier you can decorate it with stickerswrite on a name and stick it on the lid.

  • I also decided to wrap a piece of white raffia around and make a bow. What a gorgeous little

  • present right?! Especially in the winter when our skin gets dry it is really important to

  • exfoliate and moisturize. This scrub works perfectly because it does bothremoves

  • dry skin and death cells plus moisturizes.

  • Now let's make some marble bowls which are a great decorating and organizing piece for

  • any age. We're gonna need some clay, a bowl, dough roller and a gold fabric marker. Roll

  • the colors of your choice into strips like this. I have white, green, violet and yellow.

  • Now you need to twist all the strips together and the more you twist, the more marbley your

  • bowls are going to be. I want my design to be quite full so I decided to roll my clay

  • again and then twist it like that. Just play with it so that the clay colors mix together.

  • When you feel like you have a good pattern, form the clay into a little marble ball. Place

  • it on the flat surface and use a roller or something rounded like a vase or a bottle

  • to flatten it. Just as you would be baking cookies. Place the clay on top of the bowl

  • and let it dry. Here I made another one. For this one I swirled the clay even more so I

  • got an even more marbley rustic look. I decided to put it inside the bowl and make the edge

  • even more wavy, by folding it in. My clay is air drying so I just have to wait for a

  • few hours for my bowls to dry and harden, but you can bake them and speed up the process.

  • For the finishing touch color the edge in gold or any other color. You can use a marker

  • or acrylic paint to do that. Ta-da the marble dishes are all ready and a perfect gift for

  • a friend, your mom, grandma or anyone that likes cute room decorating pieces. These are

  • great for storing jewelry, or anything else like keys, pins, you name it.

  • What is better than drinking a morning coffee or tea from a mug made by someone very special

  • to you? DIY mugs are a cute and super easy idea perfect for all ages. To make them you

  • need a white mug and some porcelain markers. This one would be perfect for a birthday gift.

  • I started with a party garland and some balloons. First I like to outline the picture in black

  • and then I'll add some color. Plain mugs are very inexpensive and the markers will last

  • you forever, so you'll be able to make a lot of gifts using them. All you have to do is

  • transform yourself into a creative mug designer and make some awesome drawings on the mugs.

  • I am really not that good in drawing, so don't judge me. But that is the point of DIY-ing!

  • You don't have to be a Picasso to make a gift like that. I also decided to add a little

  • quote – "smile it looks good on you". Not just smile, the person I'm gonna give this

  • mug to will probably laugh every morning when drinking coffee, thinking about how terrible

  • drawer I am. Feel free to leave your mug in black and white but you know me – I love

  • color so I had to spice it up a bit. Looking awesome! Now on to the other mug! I wanted

  • this one to be more winter related so I'm writing on "baby it's cold outside". I don't

  • know about you guys but boy it's been getting pretty cold here in Norway lately, so this

  • totally feels appropriate. On the bottom part of the mug I am drawing 3 penguinspoor

  • babies freezing in the snow. Start with an oval for the body, horizontal number three

  • for the face and two lines for the white belly. Using yellow marker make a beak and their

  • feet. And since I am making fantasy penguins I am coloring them in green, pink and blue.

  • This DIY doesn't take more than five minutes and you get such a nice gift! Just perfect!

  • To make your mugs dish washer proof we have to pop them in the oven for the marker to

  • harden. Follow the instructions for your markers as they can be a bit different. I have to

  • bake my mugs at three hundred Fahrenheit for ninety minutes. Voila, here they are all finished

  • and looking awesome. I love how you can be so creative with these mugs. You can make

  • so many awesome designs. Drawings, patterns, quotes... sky is the limit. Quality control

  • is needed again so let's make some hot chocolate. Little bit of milk, a teaspoon of cocoa powder

  • and whipped cream to make it extra delicious and festive. Every time your friend will drink

  • from the mug that you made, he or she will be reminded how special he or she is to you.

  • And that is a priceless feeling.

  • Last but definitely not least I'll show you how to make these epic gloves or hand warmers,

  • which is probably my favorite gift idea in a bunch. And no worries if you don't know

  • how to knit because I have no clue either, tweenzies! You will need some yarn, ice cream

  • cup, glue gun, bobby pins, knitting hook and a needle. Before we start knitting we need

  • to make a simple knitting loom. Start placing pairs of pins around the edge of the cup like

  • that, leaving about half an inch between each pair. If you don't have an ice cream cup you

  • can use a bigger coffee cup or any other hollow rounded object. Time to take our glue gun

  • and let's apply some glue over and around each pin to make sure they will stay in place

  • while knitting. When all the pins are glued in place we can proceed to the fun partknitting!

  • Take your yarn and this is optional – a straw. Thread the yarn through it. Straw makes

  • it easier to wrap the yarn around each pin. Leave about five inches of yarn hang loose

  • and then start wrapping the yarn around each pin. Make sure that you have loops on the

  • outside and the connecting line of yarn on the inside of the loom. When you reach the

  • first pin, just continue with one more row above the first one. See how quickly you can

  • wrap the yarn around the pins using a straw?! The second wrapping row is finished so it's
