30+DIY Gift Ideas that Look Expensive

Giving someone a homemade gift can result in a hug and true appreciation or a polite “Thank you” and an awkward look. If you know someone well, you maybe already know if they will really appreciate a handmade gift. However, that isn’t always the case. So why give a DIY gift?

  • Reason #1: it is less expensive.
  • Reason #2: it shows you really thought about the gift and spent time in creating it for the receiver.

So what is a DIYer to do? Give a gift that looks like you purchased it in a local boutique or specialty store. Etsy is a good place for inspiration. It is full of homemade products that don’t really look homemade.
