Christmas DIY gifts for him and her

With Christmas just a few days away everyone is kinda in a gift- shopping fever, including me. There are quite a lot of gift guides at the moment around the web so I thought of putting together a slightly more special one that focused more on homemade gifts that you can give to your friend/boyfriend/girlfriend, and even family. I`ve tried splitting them into his and hers although most of the ideas can apply to both. 

For her

1. DIY twig votive candle holder. If you`re girl friend loves candles this is a great and stylish idea. Instruction here.

 5. Cute Iphone case DIY. This idea is especially great as you can personalise the case depending on your friend`s/girlfriend personality and play with different fabrics and colours. Details here

 6. This cute DIY recipes book makes me wanna start cooking. Reminds me of the the diaries and wish-lists I used to keep as a child. Tutorial here.

 7. DIY necklace. I don`t have a particular link for this one but this is quite easy to make by combining two different coloured necklaces into one.

 8. Felt circle pillow DIY. A bit more hard work the end result is totally worth it! Details here.

 9. Homemade scrub. Look for a simple recipe online like this one below with sea salt, lemon and olive oil, add the mixed ingredients in a jar and decorate it with a cute ribbon and a note. Perfect organic beauty gift.
