Nov 28, 2017 by apost team

It’s Christmas, and you know what that means. Presents! If you're anything like us, you'll love to plan and get creative! Or perhaps you're more of the panic buyer like some men we know ;) 

Here are our top 3 ideas so you can celebrate this Christmas in style, whatever your talent level! And do you know the best part? Guys will love whatever you get them as long as it’s from the heart. 

1 - DIY Picture Frame

How To Make It: 

  • Cut out shapes in the form of yours and your partner's initials as well as an “&” sign 
  • Take a trip down memory lane by printing off some of your favorite photos together 
  • Cut out "matboard" shapes using gorgeous scrapbook paper. Make sure the paper shapes are slightly larger than the photographs!
  • Next, glue your photographs to the scrapbook paper shapes
  • Either buy a beautiful picture frame or use a favorite frame you have at home and attach string in a clothesline formation from one side of the frame to the other
    Make sure there's enough room when you attach your photos so that they don't overlap!
  • Attach the letters and photographs in a layout you find pleasing and you're done! 

    Bonus Tip: Additionally, you can spray paint the picture frame and letters to give it that added touch of magic :)

2 - Custom iPad Case

What you need:

  • An iPad case to fit the correct iPad model
  • Iron-on letters 
  • An iron 

How To Make It: 

  • Select the letters which you want to combine to make a message of your choice
    For example, you could use his nickname, a favorite sports team, musician get the idea ;) 
  • Once you have arranged the letters, place a thin cloth over the case and start ironing the letters into place 
  • Now you have your own custom case! 

    This is a perfect gift if your partner has an iPad or if you are going to buy them one for Christmas! 

3 - Love Coupons

What you need:

  • Elegant writing paper
  • A small box which you can decorate

How To Make It:   

  • Cut your writing paper into shapes that are small enough to fit into the box
  • Write funny or sweet coupon messages which your partner can redeem later
  • Your love coupons can be as adventurous or affectionate as you wish. Maybe you could write a love coupon for a 60 minute back rub, a sports-only tv night, stocking the fridge with his favorite beers, the possibilities are endless! 
  • Pop them all in the box and have fun ;)

    Optional Extra: Why not spray perfume on the love coupons or design each one differently?
