Looking for a last minute gift idea? Here are my favorite DIY gift ideas when you need it fast

Hi everyone,

You have been invited to a party at short notice or forgot to take care of a present in time? Don't panic. Today I introduce my favourite gift ideas to you, if you need it fast: Digital (craft) templates for printing!

You only need a colour printer and preferably a bit thicker printer paper. Depending on the use case and printer specifications, I recommend paper between 150-250g such as this 200g* paper. Thick paper makes your print-out look better and you can create a gift from home in minutes. A big advantage of digital templates is that you can adjust and reuse them as often as you like. In addition, they are comparatively cheap if you already have a printer at home.

How about, for example, a birth poster as a gift for a birth in your family or for the next baby shower? There are poster templates in various designs and many of them are even customizable, making your gift very personal and unique. For example, the poster template HELLO BABYwhich you can download in our shop as PDF instant download:

The poster shows a moon, clouds and stars motive and looks particularly beautifully on a shelf of a children's room or over a baby bed. After the download, you can customize the poster with name, date, time, size and weight and simply print it out. All you have to do is to put the print-out in a nice DIN A4 frame * and your gift is ready. If you don't know the birth dates of the child, there are also templates without individualization, such as the digital picture set SWEET DREAMS.

If you go to Etsy you will find a lot of great birth posters for download or as print version.

But there are not only great digital downloads for birth as a gift idea, but also for birthdays. Have you always wanted to make an explosion box yourself and give it away as a present, but you lack the experience or the concrete design idea to realize it? With the digital template HAPPY for your birthday, it's no problem. In addition to the designs, the template contains a step-by-step manual for creating your own explosion box. you will exactly understand what you need and how much time you should plan.

Also for family members, for example for your mum on Mother's Day, there are beautiful digital downloads as print-outs. The DIY family poster FAMILIY with the quote "We are familiy - when we have each other, we have everything" can be individualized with the first names of your family members. You can certainly make your mother happy by giving her the poster together with her favorite flowers and a beautiful card with personal words. It is not only a beautiful picture for your mother, but also a special gift idea for the whole family. Also on Etsy, there are many beautiful poster ideas for Mother's Day.

There are also printable greeting cards for a wide variety of occasions: Cards for birthdays, births, weddings, mother's day etc. One of my favorite places to get a wide range of beautiful cards is Creative Market. Here , for example, you'll find a nice set of cards for Mother's Day.

Here's a little tip: if you don't have suitable wrapping paper at home, you can also download and print out digital wrapping paper for smaller gifts. Have you also already been in the situation where you were invited to a birthday party, but only had Christmas paper at home 😊? Here you will find a great set of digital gift wrapping papers for birthdays. There are also many wrapping papers for free to download. Just enter "gift wrapping paper download" in your search engine and you will certainly find what you are looking for. Wrapping with self-printed wrapping paper only works for smaller gifts though, as most of you probably only have a DIN A4 or DIN A3 printers at home.

These have already been my recommendations for you for last minute gift ideas. I hope I was able to help you finding a suitable gift or gift wrapping for your next special occassion. Please leave me a comment and tell me what you like to give away as a gift if you need it fast.
