These days, buying someone a unique gift that they are sure to like is difficult. After all, we live in a world of consumerism where we have everything. Therefore, if you want to make your loved one happy, bet on meaningful gifts. How to? Design your own mug!
Grab your paints and design your own mug
If you want to create a unique gift at a low cost, you can design your own mugs. You will need one-color mugs for this. The ones in light colors like white or beige will work best. Also get some special paint for ceramics. These will not wash off when exposed to water or other liquids. You can let your imagination run wild here. Paint an interesting pattern on them, write a favorite quote of a loved one, or try your hand with stamps. There are many possibilities, and a mug painted this way will be a wonderful gift.
Lack of time?…or talent?
Let’s not kid ourselves. Not everyone of us is an artist, and preparing the necessary materials and making such a gift may take some time, which we do not have much. This does not mean that you have to give up on the idea. Nowadays, many stores offer the possibility to order personalized products, including mugs. You can design your own mug online. All you have to do is send the graphic or text of your choice to the store. The ordered product will be delivered directly to your door.
Inspirations for other DIY gifts
Mugs with your favorite photo are a beautiful and very practical gift. However, you can create so much more. Give your loved ones an album or a frame with shared photos. Not many people develop photos these days, so this will definitely be appreciated. If your budget is a bit bigger, you can also think about jewelry with engraving. The date of your first date on a bracelet is definitely a very romantic gift.
A unique gift for a loved one does not have to be expensive at all. Design your own mugs, photo album or any other accessory that will be meaningful to that person. Most importantly, it should be given with love. So get creative and get to work!
