DIY Christmas Gifts

By Kellie Maloney

What could be more meaningful than a DIY experience gift card this Christmas? Not only will your gift recipient be empowered to learn a new skill and make something, but you can also join in on the action! Paint a masterpiece, arrange a Christmas wreath and much more with these unique gift experiences.

As the silly season ramps up and everybody rushes to the stores to tick off their Christmas shopping list, you can sometimes lose sight of the true meaning of the festive season. Try something new this year and get an experience gift card that offers quality time and connection over material gifts. Your special someone will see just how much you care and enjoy making priceless memories at a beginner-friendly class.

Setting aside time in our busy lives and DIYing handmade gifts is the perfect opportunity to unwind and focus on what’s important. Amidst the hustle and bustle of our daily routines, taking on a creative project can be immensely fulfilling for both ourselves and the person we are gifting. It's a chance to challenge ourselves and tap into our artistic side, while simultaneously bringing joy to others. Whip up quality chocolate for a significant other or build your own succulent terrarium to gift to a kind co-worker. 

We’ve provided you with options for DIY projects to gift and the best workshops to share with a Christmas experience gift card this festive season.

Learn how to make chocolate

Calling all sweet tooths! Learn how to make delicious desserts at chocolate making classes. Guided by a passionate foodie, you and your gift recipient will get the lowdown on what goes into chocolate, how it’s made and (most importantly) how best to enjoy it!
