15 Cute DIY Gifts That Are Perfect For That Special Someone

These cute DIY gifts make the perfect presents for anyone in your life! These ideas are super affordable and easy to make! Great ideas for any occasion.

Let’s be honest, buying gifts for the important people in our lives is much more of a challenge when we have a limited budget..especially during our broke college days. The idea of spending $50 on a cute bracelet for our roomie’s birthday or on a new shirt for our boyfriend seems quite unrealistic when all we have is that 20 dollar bill our parents gave us to last through the week (and toilet paper and food come before any form of gift giving.) So if you are one of many with a consistently empty wallet, cute DIY gifts can be your best friend around the holidays or important birthdays. Let’s see how crafty you can really get…here are 15 cute DIY gifts for the special someone (when you’re working with a tiny budget!)
