There are people who already have everything. For those people, it can be challenging to choose a birthday gift -- because they already have every need covered.


Handmade gifts are perfect for people like that -- because they're likelier to appreciate a special handmade something than they are to appreciate yet another same-old store-bought gift.


Handmade soaps, candles and personal care products are appropriate gifts for people who already have it all -- because, when you make a gift yourself, you can customize it specifically for the person you're giving it to, which makes it extra special.


Leisure Arts has a lovely series of books on the topic of making your own gifts to give to friends and family members. It's called the "Make & Give" series. I've reviewed 3 of the books in this series, and can honestly recommend all of them:

So there you have it: Those are some fabulous ideas for birthday crafts you can make for everyone you know and love. Happy crafting!
