Amshina Handmade Gift Ideas Round Up 2018

Happy Tuesday!

It’s the week before Christmas! I am here to share with you my creative makes for handmade gift ideas 2018. These items were made specifically for the holiday in low quantities to give you some gifting ideas for your family and friends. If you missed my sharing on social media and my etsy shop- here’s a round up of what all made the list this year and may still be available in my shop for order or drop off ( Only if you live in Toronto :)).

Day 1- Dining Decor

Table napkins are still in. These are a great way to decorate your food festivities at the dining table or at the kitchen island.

Day 2- Stocking Stuffers

Little gifts and treats for a gift exchange or a fun, unique and useful gift under $20. The mini purses, the key fob and the pocket square.

Day 3- Cold Weather Fashion

These are all about the scarves, shrugs, vests and ponchos. Stay warm and stylish at the same time.

Day 4- Fashonista in the Kitchen

This category featured the colourful and durable potholders made from wax print cottons and double insul shine batting for maximum heat protection. They are pretty and functional too. The apron is another conversation piece. If you like the Flintstones then this fun chic apron is for you or that person you have in mind.

Day 5- Get Organized

These catch me all bags are great options for many things, travelling or just organizing pieces in your hand bag or closet. A variety to choose from.

Day 6- Ornaments

These were special. I know some families like to add a new piece to their tree every year. These were made using wax print scraps to create a fusion of colour and interest in each piece.

Day 7- Hair Care

These tell their own story of hair care but also of decor and sleeping comfort. Another great way to mix and match bed linens too.

These items can be found in my etsy shop: http:///www.etsy.com/shop/amshinaapparel

Here’s to wishing you guys an amazing week. Thanks for stopping by. Whether you are making items, shopping for your loved ones or just looking forward to the holiday with family and friends I wish you all the best as you plan. Is there anything in particular you appreciate about this time of year? Drop a line below and let me know. 🙂

Bless

The holidays are upon us!!!!

Re you ready

Honestly I am not ready, there is just so much to do so little time. Am I the only one!!!! I hope not…. It seems that not only my Christmas shopping caught up to me but also all my DIYs for the holiday… As the calendar keep going I am faced with :

to buy 11 DIY christmas gift ideas

I know I know, I may be exaggerating. But truly I am questioning whether I do have enough time to do my DIYs or whether I should just go out to the store and buy them all. Hmmmmm, decisions, decisions, decisions. Over these years, Christmas giving for me has become so creative, It’s a great opportunity to share my creativity with love ones. 🙂

I Truly love the idea of gift giving at Christmas because  to me its not about the cost of the gift but the thought. Tokens of appreciation to friends and family brings total joy to my heart. Especially when it is something they needed. I do put thought into each.

So I will persevere on the projects I have chosen. Under strict timelines.  🙂 Here we go….

I will show you all the goodies I made once the gifts have been given out. I don’t want anyone being surprised too early. 🙂 So perhaps Christmas day will be the most appropriate day to share.

Since I have ranted about my plans to tackle the few days ahead.

What about you? Are you ready? Are you doing any DIY’s this year? Do Share your Christmas gifts adventures.

I look forward to hearing your stories.
