I know everyone is beginning to divulge into full finals freakout mode, but before that happens you should cut yourself some slack and think about something else! Like maybe that the most wonderful time of the year is upon us! (aka CHRISTMAS– cue Buddy the Elf freakout!). So I know, much like you do, that with Christmas comes presents, but with presents comes money and that’s where things get complicated. I hate to remind you but you are probably a broke college student and can’t afford to buy your brother the iPhone 6+ anyways. Plus what about the time that shopping takes anyways! You have finals people, you ain’t got time for that! So I’m here to help you find the perfect gift for someone that is both cheap and very non-time consuming! Whoever you might be shopping for you should be able to find a gift for them within this post! (Click on the title to get the step by step directions).
Hand Decorated Mug
This is super easy and is a great gift for anyone! All you need is a plain white mug and a sharpie (you can use different colors too)! Also you could use any other dinnerware like plates or bowls!
All you need for this one is candles, crayons and a crock pot! Who doesn’t love candles anyways!
Mason Jar Vases
Mason jars are easy to come by now a days so just pick a stencil, paint over it, add some flowers and bam!
Gift In A Jar
On the same basis of mason jars, you can put just about anything in a jar for a present, popcorn, hot cocoa, pens, whatever you know someone loves!
You have all of these Instagram pictures just floating out in cyberspace! Now you can finally do something with them! You just need to make sure you have a way to get them printed out!
Root Beer Reindeer
All you need is the decorations and someone who loves root-beer!
Think of all of those shells you collected at the beach, now you have something creative to do with them!
No Sew Scarf
I know you have a bunch of old t-shirts lying around that need to be used up!
This ones a little more complicated as you need to obtain a steel stamping set, but you can make endless items after you get that!
The materials might be hard to obtain but it’s easy to make!
Kitchen Tablet Holder
What mom or grandma isn’t using their tablet to cook dinner nowadays? You can very easily make this with a few cheap items!
