Gifts for the New Year

Do-it-yourself gift for dad for the New Year

The excite­ment about gifts for the New Year begins much ear­li­er than Decem­ber 31st. And this applies not only to adults, but also to chil­dren. Every child wants to please his par­ents with some­thing spe­cial, some­thing that will give them plea­sure.

Hov­er, one should not think that dad or mom are wait­ing for some­thing expen­sive.

It will be enough for them to get the atten­tion of the child, as ll as to see how much he has invest­ed in prepar­ing a gift.

Making symbolic gifts

A New Year’s gift from young chil­dren should be pure­ly sym­bol­ic, because they can­not earn mon­ey yet. There are many ways to make a gift for dad with your own hands. As a present, a post­card paint­ed by a kid, a draw­ing cre­at­ed in just a few min­utes, and a minia­ture key­chain made from impro­vised mate­ri­als are suit­able. In addi­tion, dad will be touched by a rhyme clum­si­ly told under the Christ­mas tree.

Ideas for creating useful things

But old­er chil­dren need to work a lit­tle.

Next, con­sid­er the most inter­est­ing ideas for gifts.

  • Those who have mas­tered the knit­ting tech­nique can knit a hat, sater or warm socks for their father. This will be espe­cial­ly true for a par­ent who loves win­ter hunt­ing or fish­ing. And you don’t have to wor­ry if some­thing doesn’t work out, because dad “just won’t notice it.”

  • Any­one who loves scrap­book­ing can do pho­to album for old favorite fam­i­ly pho­tos. A more atmos­pher­ic album will turn out if you select the appro­pri­ate pho­tos — New Year’s or just win­ter ones.
  • Anoth­er inter­est­ing gift is a pho­to frame. It can be made from thick card­board and then dec­o­rat­ed with small shells or dried flors. Inside, be sure to insert a fam­i­ly pho­to. This will make the gift even more per­son­al and impor­tant to the father.
  • For the New Year will serve as an excel­lent gift christ­mas toy, made by hand. To do this, you can use foam plas­tic, and even a burnt out light bulb, which can be paint­ed with paints, and then sprin­kled with mul­ti-col­ored sparkles.

  • It will be easy for the kid to make a soft toy, which will act as a sym­bol of the upcom­ing New Year. You can make it from felt or oth­er fab­rics avail­able in the house. You just need to stock up on a nee­dle and thread of the right col­or. If some­thing does not work out, you can always turn to your moth­er, who will be hap­py to help. By the way, after the New Year, the toy can be hung in the car, if there is one.

  • For cof­fee lovers, you can make a Christ­mas tree from cof­fee beans. Every­thing here is also extreme­ly sim­ple. The young mas­ter will need a cup and saucer, some cof­fee beans, a thick thread or twine, as ll as foam and a few mul­ti-col­ored beads. From the foam, you need to cut out the base for the Christ­mas tree, which should be con­i­cal. Then it must be smeared with glue and quick­ly wrapped with twine. From above, you can stick grains, as ll as mul­ti-col­ored beads. In this blank, you must care­ful­ly insert the bar­rel, which can be made from an ordi­nary han­dle, also wrapped with twine. The cof­fee tree should be placed in a cup filled with cof­fee beans.

  • An excel­lent gift would be a hand-knit­ted mug case. This will allow you to take cof­fee or tea hot with­out burn­ing your­self. In addi­tion, you can give a per­son­al­ized mug to the cov­er.

  • If dad has a car, you can knit or sew a pil­low for the dri­ver, for exam­ple, in the form of a car. Inside you need to put a soft filler. For a sim­pler option, you can take a reg­u­lar pil­low­case, fill it with padding poly­ester, and dec­o­rate it with a themed appliqué on top.

  • A great gift would be a key­chain. You can make it from any impro­vised mate­ri­als. It can be beads, wood or fab­ric.

  • If the father is fond of fish­ing, a craft would be a great gift for him. from cones and acorns in the form of a man with a fish­ing rod. Mak­ing it is very sim­ple: in addi­tion to cones and acorns, you only need twigs or match­es for arms and legs and a lit­tle glue.

  • Refrig­er­a­tor mag­nets. To do this, you need to make a New Year’s fig­urine from salt dough or spe­cial plas­ticine. When the toy is ready, you need to col­or it, and glue a small mag­net on the back.

  • If the father is fond of cook­ing, then it is quite pos­si­ble to give him a styl­ish nom­i­nal apron. It does not take much time or spe­cial skills to make it. A draw­ing or an inscrip­tion can be made using sten­cils or dec­o­rate an apron with stick­ers. Hov­er, if the child knows how to write neat­ly and beau­ti­ful­ly, you can arrange every­thing by hand.

  • Father who works in the office can give a hang­er for ties or a styl­ish hand-sewn but­ter­fly. Every time, putting on such a tie, dad will remem­ber his car­ing child.

Edible gift options

Edi­ble gifts will please every­one. For those who do not like sets, you can cook a deli­cious sal­ad or bake a fish caught by dad in the oven. But for the set tooth, the choice of gifts is almost lim­it­less.

  • Even small chil­dren will find it easy to bake cook­ies in the form of stars or ani­mals, and then put them in a box made in advance with your own hands and dec­o­rate it with a cor­ru­gat­ed paper bow. You can also make your own pack­ag­ing for the box. To do this, sim­ply paint plain wrap­ping paper with the­mat­ic pat­terns or write New Year’s wish­es on it. The orig­i­nal design will appeal even to men who are far from art.
  • A gin­ger­bread house would be a great gift for dad. You can ask for help from your moth­er, who will not only tell you the recipe, but also per­form the dif­fi­cult part of the work if nec­es­sary.
  • A tasty and orig­i­nal present will be a Christ­mas tree made of sets and a few tea bags. To do this, you just need to make a con­i­cal blank from thick card­board, and then use glue to attach sets and tea bags to the base. To dec­o­rate a New Year’s tree, it is bet­ter to choose the most deli­cious and fra­grant tea and dad­dy’s favorite sets.
  • You can bake a cake in the form of a clock, draw arrows on it that will show five min­utes to tlve. Dad will def­i­nite­ly share such a deli­cious gift with all house­hold mem­bers.
  • It’s also easy to make choco­late chip cook­ies. You can choose a sim­pler recipe or make huge Amer­i­can cook­ies with choco­late chips inside. Addi­tion­al­ly, you can write a New Year’s pre­dic­tion on the pack­age. Or choose a more orig­i­nal ver­sion and bake leaflets with pre­dic­tions direct­ly into cook­ies.
  • You can cook a jar of dad­dy’s favorite jam, ask­ing your grand­moth­er or moth­er for a recipe. On the jar, be sure to stick a piece of paper where con­grat­u­la­tions will be writ­ten. In addi­tion, the jar can be beau­ti­ful­ly dec­o­rat­ed with snowflakes or tin­sel.
