7 Budget Lovely Gifts & Sweet Christmas DIYs

I independently selected products in this post—if you buy from one of my links, I may earn a commission.

1. Here’s a Gift They’ll Keep Forever

These custom photo puzzles are even more special than you might think. First, it’s getting more rare to print personal photos since we’re all so digitally inclined. So to have a happy memory preserved in a puzzle is awesome. Second, Minted does an incredible job with quality and packaging. This puzzle arrives in a pouch and gift box that will last. The puzzle can be glued together if you like!

Finally, I love this gift idea because it works for all ages and is one size fits all.

2. Delightful from a Danish Design Brand

If you have yet to discover the quality and charm of Maileg…oh my goodness!!! Monika of the Seattle-based Splendid Avenue introduced me to these creations in 2010. Because they are always limited release, they will always become collectible.

Adults and children alike will be smitten!

3. Christmas DIY Idea: Handmade, Minimal Easy Scandi Decorations

It was the felt star garland that caught my attention since I have hand-sewn my own little ivory felted stars. See my own Christmas home tour HERE. However, these are made simpler with hot glue.

4. Because STRESSED Spelled Backwards is DESSERT

Who wouldn’t appreciate a bit of truffle goodness? Bonus? It need not be wrapped.

Funny quote about Grandpa Joe (Charlie & Chocolate Factory) on Hello Lovely Studio.

5. Perfect for Expectant Parents or Toddlers

The Table Tyke is more than a simple silicone placemat and offers genius design features you may not immediately recognize. Notice the mat’s table edge bumper? It hugs the table/countertop edge, keeping everything safer for kids and especially teethers.

There are more colors available, and The Table Tyke also rolls up…perfect for travel! Best of all, it’s not just for meal time…think of all those messy art activities that can happen while the table or counter stays protected. I own this mat and will be ready for visiting kiddos!

“You get to your fancy aunt’s house where everything is white and you get your suction bowl out. Guess what? It doesn’t stick to the table. Well with this you don’t have that problem. Big enough to cover enough area. Small enough to fit in diaper bag. I’m saying it’s in the must have column. Get it!” -Amazon review

6. Christmas DIY Idea: Upcycled Thrift Store Finds for Holiday

I picked up a few tips from She Holds Dearly in this frugal romp, and her cozy little window seat reminds me of my own!

7. Not Just for the Holidays

The colors are so gorgeous, and since the theme is not shouting Christmas, it will look lovely all year round.

8. Don’t Be Fooled by the Low Price!

If you have shopped for a crossbody type backpack, then you probably know a good looking one can be around $100. This one is perfectly sized if you ask me, and at just $20–I bet you know girls to guys to grannies who would appreciate it.

Funny quote about November on Hello Lovely Studio. #fallquotes #winterquotes

9. Holiday DIY Idea: Decorating the Kitchen With Citrus & Cedar

Hers is a simple, cheerful, white kitchen just right for decorating seasonally. I’m always in awe of homeowners who get into the spirit of each season by styling their shelves and thoughtfully accenting with natural touches. (I have not decorated for the holidays a lick yet!)

10. Is This Gorgeous Gift Really Under $30?

It is! Saving the best for last! I was so happy to snag this the other day, and it is even better looking in person. And it isn’t just for lovers of brie. I foresee any number of uses since it is ovensafe and the perfect size. I know I will be enjoying this for years to come!

I shared Part 1 in another post, and in this episode, we see Delia’s technique for roasting a turkey. How I enjoy seeing her devotion to getting that turkey moist, but more than that, I like peeking at her English countryside kitchen and imagining I am right there with her.

Bonus Inexpensive Gift Ideas That Won’t Break the Bank

Don’t you love those sweet little indulgences you would otherwise probably not buy? Those are always some of the best gifts!

We love our Laguiole steak knives, and the colors on these cheese knives are just so cheerful!

Oh these wonderful tins of yum! I never tire of the Pink Grapefruit & Tupelo Honey, but I actually love all of Torie & Howard’s offerings so don’t hesitate to give any flavor this Christmas.

I keep a tin in a bedside drawer (shhhhh!) as it is a healthier alternative to satisfy a sweet tooth at 9 pm when there’s chocolate cake in the frig.

Here’s another sweet find that won’t add any calories at all:
