Christmas gift giving and surprising ideas

Hey There! It’s that time of the year, and I’ve started my annual digging for the creative minds of the people in web. Even though we don’t celebrate Christmas here in Iran, every year I am amazed about how many creative and genius ideas come to existence in this last month! People just go nuts around the web, everyone seems so jolly and happy, and every Instagram account is posting Christmas trees and presents. It’s so magical! And I love to people-watch, even if I only get to see the magic that goes on in internet.

So, I’ve gathered some lovely ideas about things to do Christmas, mostly about gifts and how to give gifts and how to surprise while giving the gifts (In one word, gifts)! I wanna share them with you guys, and I will also include some of my own ideas that came to my mind while searching the web!

DIY necklace weaving – The Persian carpet weavers way

Weaving a carpet is hard. Everyone knows that. Not many people (including me) happen to just “try it out”. But who says you can’t use the process to do some other creative thing? (And an easy peasy on, preferably!) So Fatemeh has just come up with the idea of making a DIY necklace out of carpet knots! Isn’t that just brilliant?

If you’ve ever woven friendship bracelet, you might find this a bit similar. If you haven’t, don’t be afraid! It’s not that hard! I’ll try to explain as much as I can, but you might have to check each picture twice until you get it straight. No pain, no gain, huh?

Let’s do it!
