10 Handmade Gifts You Can Send In The Post

Those painted spoons are just fantastic, I love them and so important to find great things to go in the post without too much cost. Mich x

I love handmade gifts, I wish I could make things myself but I can only do cakes and they are difficult to post. Sometimes we forget about how difficult it is to post things, especially when they are handmade.

I love the idea of making my own canvas portrait

A few months ago we moved from one side of the country to the other, we love it here but obviously it does make it a little bit difficult for seeing our family and friends! As much as I would like to see everyone whenever I can I know that it’s just not possible so with that in mind I thought I would share some ideas for handmade gifts you can send in the post. Handmade gifts are a great way of showing that you care, whether it’s for birthdays or for Christmas and who doesn’t love receiving something cool in the post? It’s not the same as seeing someone face to face but it’s a brilliant way of showing you care and staying in touch.

Tips for sending handmade gifts

Living away from my family I’m used to sending quite a bit through the post and my sister used to work in America which meant that I’ve had to send gifts internationally before. I like to use jiffy bags or the postage plastic bags to keep costs down where possible but for things like china or glass I’d always recommend using a cardboard box and a lot of bubble wrap to make sure it’s safe. Using a delivery company like TNT also means that you can trace where your parcel is which is great for a bit of peace of mind!
