Christmas is such a wonderful time of year for so many reasons. I particularly love the giving part of Christmas. Creating gifts for those around me and giving them something that truly means something is one of the highlights of my holiday season. I often think about the fact that I can easily run to a store and buy them something, but for me, making something heart felt and personal makes it that much more special. Creating personalized Christmas gifts can really make your friends and families Christmas. That is why I want to share some of my favorite Christmas gift ideas today!
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.
Over the past couple of years, I have opted to give personalized Christmas gifts for my parents as well as my mother and father in law. I feel that there is nothing I can buy at the store that will wow them or make them feel loved. After my sister passed away, I began really focusing on giving gifts with meaning. We have given birthstone rings, framed pictures, and a couple years ago, I painted a picture for my parents where my deceased sister was the focus. Let’s just say it was a definite hit.
Last year, I gave my mother in law a painting I had made of our new Cedar City Utah Temple. I think it was well received as well! I have heard of the 5 languages of love….Words of Affirmation, Acts of Service, Receiving Gifts, Quality Time, and Physical Touch. I definitely think acts of service is mine. Not receiving gifts, or giving gifts, but making things by hand for those I love.
Another example…for my kids birthdays, I spend all day baking and creating the perfect birthday dinner and dessert just for them. This is my gift to them. My time.
So, for this Christmas, I really wanted to create some personalized Christmas gifts for my family members that they might never knew they always needed! I decided to create a personalized monogrammed sign for my mother in law. What a better gift than to give someone a pretty reminder of the years of memories they have had together.
54 years! 54 years they have been married. That is something to document! So, I made this sign for my in laws. I am so excited to give it to them this year. I made this using my Cricut Maker as well as some vinyl and paint. It was actually really easy to make, and I created a file on Design Space where you can edit it with your own names and dates.
You really can do so much with a Cricut Machine and I want to show you!
