The holiday season is in full swing, which can, unfortunately, leave some people out in the cold. People with birthdays that fall in the month of November, December, and January are often overlooked. It’s not because friends and family want to forget — it’s more that the holiday madness takes over. Fortunately, with a little creativity and some labels for clothing, you can give your loved ones great gifts for their winter birthday — gifts that won’t cost you a fortune and which will make them feel appreciated.
When you make your own gifts and personalize them with labels, you are giving more than just a present. You are giving a little piece of yourself, and you are letting the recipient know that they are truly important in your life. Anyone can grab a card and a cheap bottle of perfume or cologne to give as a gift. But putting in the time and effort to make a personalized gift shows that you are giving from your heart. Here are some great, easy gift ideas that you can whip up in a flash.
- Personalized Stockings — If someone has a birthday before Christmas, you can make a personalized stocking to give as a gift. You don’t have to make the actual stocking, although, with a bit of material and a pattern, you can make one with ease. You can buy a stocking from any store and decorate it. Be creative with the decorations. For instance, if the recipient loves animals, iron on some cute animal pictures. Don’t forget to add one of our labels, so they will always remember where it came from.
- Personalized T-Shirts — Another easy gift to whip up is a personalized shirt. You can buy t-shirts in any color, and add your own personal touches. Again, be creative with the decorations. Some easy ideas including adding “bling,” patches, pictures, and beadwork. Add your name label, and your gift is ready.
- Picture Collages — It only takes a little bit of time to gather some cherished photos and create a fabulous collage. You can copy the pictures and glue them to a large piece of poster board. You can also go a step further, and have the photos screen-printed onto a piece of fabric. Choose pictures that mean something to the recipient, such as old childhood photos or family pictures through the years.
- Movie Basket — Another quick, easy gift is a movie basket. All you need is a basket, which you can purchase from almost any store. Then, grab a few good DVDs, a couple of bags of microwave popcorn, and slap on a label. Include some movies that you know the recipient loves, and choose the most buttery popcorn you can find — gifts are a time for indulgence!
As you can see, it only takes a little bit of thought to create the perfect gift for someone with a winter birthday. Then, they will feel extra special because their birthday wasn’t overlooked, and you will have a full heart knowing that you honored them on their special day.
