DIY kits

For the creative and crafty person in your life, consider gifting a DIY kit. From knitting and crocheting to woodworking and jewelry making, there are plenty of diverse options to choose from. Consider gifting a kit that matches the recipient’s interests and skill level, or introduce them to a new hobby that they may enjoy.

Here are some DIY kits to get your wheels turning:

  • Tie dye party kit
  • Candle making kit

Drone for camera for adults

For the tech-savvy adult, a drone is a fun and exciting gift. Drones come in various sizes and designs, from small, handheld models to larger, more advanced drones with built-in cameras.

Drones can get pricey very fast. I recently heard of a crop specialist investing in an $80,000 drone for crop scouting. I imagine the price tag is the same for news agencies and police department use.

Make sure you understand local ordinances about operating drones and where you can legally fly them. You wouldn’t appreciate your neighbor’s drone checking out your backyard barbeque, would you!

Whether your recipient is a photography enthusiast or just loves to fly things, a drone is sure to provide hours of entertainment.

Funny gifts that start with D

Disco ball

Go big or go home! A disco ball sends the message that you do, indeed, have a sense of humor. Double points if you dancing is part of the gift opening. If a disco ball is a wee bit too big, then how about disco ball earrings or disco ball accessories?

Mini-dumpster desktop accessories

Well, well, well. The funny gag gift companies have been busy little bees. Mini desktop dumpster accessories for your desk seems to be a hot item for. There is also no shortage of other dumpster fire themed accessories, such as mousepads, socks, stickers, coloring books, mugs, and plush toys.

To give you a background, “dumpster on fire” is a meme. The Los Angeles Magazine attributes the smily face dumpster meme to Truck Toreence, a Koreatown-based artist. Actually, it was Truck’s “popular character—a teal, anthropomorphic trash bin with flames shooting out of its top and a little, contented smile on its face—into a collectible toy.”

His smiley-faced Dumpster Fire came to life in 2016 as a gif and the rest is history. “Torrence corresponded with one person who placed a large Dumpster Fire order and learned that it was for a tech company working a project that had gone awry.”

Dazzling ‘D’ gifts for her

Looking for a gift that starts with the letter ‘D’ for that special lady in your life? Look no further! I have compiled a list of dazzling ‘D’ gifts that are sure to impress.

Decorative home accents

I, for one, love to decorate my home. Just give me a gift card and I go wild. I wouldn’t necessarily give a decorative home access gift out of the blue – decorating your home is personal. You can, however, be an enabler, and give them a gift certificate to a favorite home decor store.

If the purchase is more significant, like a new desk, dresser for the bedroom, or dining table (D-inspired, of course!), it might have to be a couple’s decision.

Maybe it’s time to invest in an upgrade of fine dinnerware or a beautiful duvet cover for the master bedroom. If your giftee is into farmhouse decor, they may fawn over this Wooden Dough Bowl Lavender Candle or even more impressive 30-inch Wooden Dough Bowl.

Diamond earrings for women

Diamond earrings – every woman should have at least one pair. Don’t forget that diamond necklaces for women are always a favorite. Alas, the fashion world has moved on to diamond nose rings, diamond anklets, diamond belly rings, and diamond toe rings, because women should be bathed in diamonds from head to toe!
