DIY, Gift idea

As you know Christmas is less then a month away! And I think now is definitely  the time to start thinking about the gifts that you are going to be giving on Christmas for your friends, relatives etc. So that's why I came up with an idea to show you some easy, cheap DIY gift ideas. And I know that self made gifts are the ones that are appreciated the most, because the person feels that you have put a lot of time and effort in them!
So my first idea that can be either a gift or a part of a gift is a personalized planner! Total costs are about 3 to 4 euros.
 What you need is: a planner, glue stick, pen, little inspirational photos, printer, scissors, paper. And of course creativity.
 First off, you print out these little photos, you can vary the size of them, whichever suits you the best!
 You cut them out. You can get these photos on many sites on Internet, for example, weheartit.com, tumblr.com. Or if you are too lazy to look up for them yourself, I can send a bunch of them via email! Just leave a comment with your email and I will send them to you! :)
 Then you start putting these little pictures in whichever order you want to! :) So whenever this person needs a little inspiration, it can be found in the planner!
 You do that on front inside cover
 And also on the back inside cover
 Then you can add little notes, your inside jokes or quotes all around the planner to make it more special!
 Hehe, I know my handwriting sucks! :D
 You can add little things that will make the other person smile!
Et Voila! The personalized planner is ready!

Remember, you can customize it however you want! This is just my idea! I think it would be a great gift to your sister, mom, cousin, a friend, or whoever you think will like it! :)

What do you think? Do you like the idea? :)

This particular planner goes to my cousin, she has a birthday today! Once again Happy Birthday Annie! :*

With love,
