It's officially Blog-mas! As such, every Thursday I will introduce a new DIY Christmas present idea. Stay tuned for some creative gift ideas to come!
To kickoff Blog-mas, the first DIY gift is a contemporary take on an old classic. It's 25 days of gifts, a spin on the traditional Advent calendar. Each day until Christmas my boyfriend (aka the lucky recipient of this DIY) will get a small present. It's a little way of giving a variety of presents that needn't be too expensive. And he has a surprise each day of December!
Depending on the items you give, you could actually make a physical calendar. Here are some cool ones from Diply. As most of my items are bigger, I am setting them out while he sleeps so he wakes up to a surprise!
