Check out these printable birthday gift ideas you can actually top with a bow. These are NOT just receipts saying, “Your gift is in the mail!” Actually, for me, this was an amazingly helpful list of last-minute gifts.
So get your ideas and get printing! If you’re having a birthday party, check out my birthday party activity downloads page for games, fun, and creative to-dos to get your party really rocking!
1. Frameworthy Phrases
Find motivational, spiritual, sentimental, or romantic quotes that would look fantastic in an 8×10 frame.
Go to their Pinterest board for ideas, or check out some of my favorites from Jannie’s Pinterest Quote Board for more inspiration.
2. Monogram Stationery
Sometimes it’s nice to have some personalized paper to give your notes and letters (or even just your to-do lists for the day) a little pizazz. A set of 10 is really good.
Make your own or download a beautiful set already finished for you.
3. Paper Dolls & Paper Dudes
Get the ones that are already beautiful, or buy some that they can color and cut out themselves.
If you have a fresh new box of colored pencils or crayons on hand, package them up with the paper dolls, which will take your gift to the next level.
4. Printed Fabric
Did you know you can print on fabric? Just use their favorite phrases, photos, and graphics – or make your own – and print it directly on the fabric! The Graphics Fairy gives 6 helpful ways you can do that. My favorite method is number 2 – freezer paper (yes, I’ve used this!).
Then decide how to gift it – as frameable art? As a tea towel? A handkerchief?
If you’re crafty with a sewing machine, turn it into a pouch, the pocket of a tote or apron, or the central piece of a pillowcase or iPad cover.
5. Set of Note Cards
…and envelopes. A set of 8 should do it.
You’d be surprised how many people LOVE this. It’s one of my favorite printable birthday gifts – YOU give them something that makes THEM look thoughtful!
Print the cards on a sturdy set of card stock. If the cards you choose don’t have matching envelopes, try printing blank envelopes on fancy paper – it adds a nice touch.
Crafting, sewing, crocheting, jewelry making (for men and women) – you can find patterns for just about anything! Etsy has a slew of great options to choose from. Just search by the interests of the person you’re shopping for, and buy and print. Done!
7. Handmade Tear-Off Notepad
Another popular printable birthday gift is simple notepads you can use every day. Print it, cut it, rubber cement across the top, and then let it dry. Done!
Tutorial to come… (you’ll love how easy this is).
8. Printed Photograph
Many people love best friends, girlfriends, grandparents, and kids. Just print one (or a handful of) frame-worthy 8×10 or 4×6 pictures and get wrapping! Which photo should you pick? Here are some ideas.
- Both of you together
- Their family
-extended family perhaps…
- Snapshot that was taken at a memorable event
-return from deployment
-theme park visit
-or that one ordinary night that turned into an amazingly unforgettable inside joke
- Nature photos
-of a favorite place, animal, or…
