Birthday Gifts

Whether homemade or store-bought, a thoughtful gift or card can make a birthday extraspecial -- we have tons of easy-to-make projects for any occasion that take less than an hour to put together. Craft a vintage candleholder, a picture frame, a wine container, a garden gift set, or a gift-card holder using our simple instructions for super quick handmade gifts. Add to a special homemade present by making your own gift wrap. Choose from several creative ways to present your gift to the birthday guy or girl. Our crafty gift wrap for all occasions has ideas for coordinating gift tins (perfect for smaller gifts), fun felt embellishments, multi-patterned wrapping, an easy-to-sew reusable gift bag, and more! You can also find birthday gift-wrapping inspiration from our ideas for pretty gift wraps and bows, from decorative die-cut boxes and glittery monograms to fabric-wrapped boxes and natural-theme gift wrap. Top off your handmade, specially wrapped birthday gift with a handmade birthday card to add a personal touch.
