Simple Homemade Gifts Under $5

handmade gifts under $5

Most of us love to give gifts but sometimes money can be an issue and sometimes when we want to make something, time can be an issue.  So I have gone through past projects and compiled a list of cute gifts that are not only simple and can be done in an afternoon but also projects that can be completed for under $5!  Oh yeah 🙂   All of these handmade gifts under $5 have been Joyful Daisy tested and kid approved 🙂


Mini scrapbooks cards, and custom DVDS are great gifts for friends, family, and teachers!  Just print out some photos or create a mini scrapbook in a theme perfect for the recipient and then they can add photos of their favorite pet, friends, or event!  How Fun?!  Another great gift is to create a DVD with photos and or family movies for friends and family that are far away and give it in a cute customized envelope!
