When it comes to special occasions, rather than buy presents, over the years, I have come to realise that homemade presents are much more appreciated and this gives me quite a lot of satisfaction!
And it was no different when it came to a friends 18th birthday!
I have made a present for both of her sisters (one's 21st and the others 18th) so the pressure was on to make something great for her and I think I did myself proud!
I took inspiration from something I saw on notonthehighstreet.com - I love this website for individual presents, and I've used it for inspiration for many gifts in the past!
My friend loves scrabble and when I saw this scrabble are on the website I was sold! But not sold on the price tag - this is definitely something I could do myself for a lot less ££!
This was the end result...
In total, the present cost £26, which is a fraction of the £69 asking price online!
Luckily, she LOVED the present!
Have you ever made any presents?
