A collection of 100 Handmade Gifts that any woman will love. These DIY  Gift Ideas are beautiful and the perfect gifts for birthdays, Mother’s Day, Christmas, or any other special occasion.


Back in the Spring of 1991 my friends back in the Canary Islands collected money to buy me a beautiful handmade basket in a small local shop. The round basket was divided in separate sections and inside of each of them they placed some of my favorite things. There was an old copy of Love In Time of Cholera, what happened to be my favorite book. There was also a bunch of white daisies, which until this day is my favorite flower. There was a little container filled with the sand of my favorite beach, Playa de Papagayo. Also there was a small burlap bag filled with lavender that smelled so amazing.  Among all of these things I also found individual letters from each of my dear friends, that I have kept over the years inside of my book. 

Over the years I have received many other gifts but that birthday basket is still my favorite one. The value is not found in how much money they spent but in how much thought, love, and time was behind their precious gift. Until this day when I smell dry lavender the memory of my dear friends back home come to my mind, touching my heart, and reminding me of my wonderful gift of friendship.

 I hope these handmade gifts inspire you to think about someone you love. There is great joy in giving!
