DIY TRAVEL GIFT IDEAS
My husband just made me a Memory Board Display to hang above my desk at home. I can display lots of pictures and mementos from past trips on it. If you have spare wood and paint in the garage, this project can be almost free to make!
I enjoy making the grandparents a new photo canvas of my boys every year or so. I just pick my favorite image of them and with a few supplies, and I have a custom gift I know they will love.
This idea from Alamo is sweet. Everyone loves buying a fun t-shirt while on vacation, but let’s be honest, how many random t-shirts can you own? And then there are the t-shirts that don’t wash well and end up shrinking. A souvenir t-shirt tote bag is the perfect way to reuse your favorite vacation t-shirts.
Custom magnets are a fun way to reuse ticket stubs, maps, photos and other paper mementos from a trip. You can also make quite a few from one souvenir. They are perfect if you just went on an extended family vacation with lots of relatives and want to give everyone a little gift to remember the trip.
For little kids, you can make them a set of travel craft sticks to take on their next vacation. You can even customize them using their favorite colors.
