No one knows the greatest stuff in art and design, fashion and food, gadgets and tech, or TV and literature better than the Tumblr community. Join us in creating the world’s largest gift guide!
Starting on Cyber Monday, post your favorite things and tag them #tumblrgiftguide. We’ll reblog our favorites onto this special Tumblr — follow for fantastic ideas to give and get this December. Happy Holidays!
We had so much fun with this last year, we’re making it a tradition! Please participate — last year I found amazing deals from small presses and lit mags and indie designers and I spent a fortune. So…thanks?
DIY Cinnamon Oil. When I was in elementary school the commodity for sale was toothpicks with cinnamon oil. About $0.10 each. SO SIMPLE tutorial at Deliciously Organized here. *Cinnamon Oil is usually really expensive, so I’m all about saving money right now.
DIY Typerwriter Tea Towels. Tutorial at Word Up, Nerd Up here.When I was at Michaels Crafts I was suprised at how cheap these alphabet stamp sets are - like $10 (and that’s before your coupon!). You could make really thoughtful gifts with these and use quotes that are meaningful to the lucky receiver.
Free DIY Bookplates. Many different artists, sizes, genre, color, black and white etc… There is something for everyone. This is a great gift given with an acid free glue stick, or print them on sticker paper (although they are easier to remove - I think - using a glue stick). Found at My Home Library here. *Note: I’d print these on cardstock or heavier paper than just copier paper.
DIY Gift Wrapping Using Craft Store “Gems”. Found at Fancy House Road here. I just found this idea really sweet. Take a bag of gems ($1 or much less) and arrange them nicely on a package for someone special.
DIY Resin Jewelry Learn how make your own resin flowers by Betsy Veldman. Resin jewelry making opens all sorts of doors to creations. The supplies can be easily found in craft stores or online. Make great gifts for your friends with this tutorial :)
