For a lot of couples, finding that perfect gift is one of the hardest parts about holidays, anniversaries, and birthdays. You want to get them something that they will not only love and use, but something that signifies the connection between the two of you. That is why many people think about unique homemade creations to make the gift special.
One great idea I recently came across was created in mind of the first anniversary custom of exchanging paper gifts. The idea is simple and easy to do. Simply print out a map, of your country or the world it is your choice, and decorate the different parts with colorful or brightly designed paper (like animal print). Glue the personalized map to a poster board or canvas and use buttons or other small objects to mark the places that you have been together as a couple.
After the map is complete, accent the design with words or a phrase that means something to you. In the example, they said, “Let’s go on an adventure”, but you could also say something like “Oh the places we will go”, or “Every day is an adventure with you”.
This simple project does not require any special tools or talents, but it is a great gift for couples that love to travel. If you have a holiday, anniversary, or birthday coming up soon, and you have no idea what to give your partner, try to think outside of the box and come up with something they will really appreciate and enjoy.
