My most prominent love language is gift giving. Seriously, who doesn’t love getting presents? If I can make someone smile or make someone’s day by giving them a little meaningful trinket or a few of their favorite candy bars, I’m doing it.

That’s why this project is so awesome. It’s incredibly easy, useful, and all about meaningful personalization. Although the tools are a little spendy, once you have them, you never have to buy them again, and you can continue making these gifts for as long as you’d like.

As summer sets in and the heat seems unrelenting, I am finding myself disregarding good hair days in an attempt to keep cooler. Long hair on a hot summer day often means a very sweaty head and rather than subject myself to the heat, my hair ends up in some sort of up-do. As someone who struggles finding the perfect balance between fashion and function I can say that DIY Summer Headbands make this a much easier task. As a current trend, DIY headbands are perfect for the summer season. Stay cute on the beach and accessorize your top-knot with these great ideas!
