You want to give him/her a thoughtful present that they would love?
Do you want to avoid general cliches and score some major points?
How about adding a homemade present to what you want to give them..you are probably thinking you are not a 'diy' person, you don't want to come of cheap (everyone hates a cheap skate) and it will take forever to sort something out and you just don't the time and energy. I feel you!
But please allow me to correct the myth that homemade is cheap. Homemade presents allow you to have more control of the budget. Take for instance a customised comic book/strip as shown in the video below, it is free to make but if you want to print it or make a book the cost goes up or a chocolate basket could cost anything from £15 to £50 or more depending on the size. Homemade/DIY gives you control of your budget and that is not always cheap.
In a recent poll by MSN Money 34%(highest) said that they believed their partner would appreciate a homemade presents. Since I started giving homemade present I've received great feedback so I put together my top 3 homemade presents for all occasions and they are all easy to make.
Note: some people prefer if you add a homemade gift to a store-bought present
