The Supremacy Of Handmade Gifts

One of the most important love languages that many people have or make use of to express their love is by giving gifts. Throughout the year, we get several instances to participate in this ritual of giving gifts for their most special people and loved ones.

Even though it can be fairly easy to go around and buy something they love to attach a heartfelt note or a greeting card, sometimes it isn't easy for everyone. We always have one person that we find impossible to shop for or buy gifts for, and special occasions with such friends or loved ones can be tricky.

At ThunderBolt paper, we are huge fans of paper craft as well as everything handmade. And the friends or people in our lives that we might find slightly difficult to shop things for or do anything special for, you must try to make something with your hands.

There are many things that handmade products, including paper craft, some of which we will discuss below

Quality control

You can surely buy anything from the stores in every price range possible for you. But an expensive product isn't always good quality as well.

When it comes to making something by yourself, for example a greeting card, a scrapbook or woolen scarf, you can make sure that you provide nothing but the very best quality of the material used and the end product as well.

Handmade gifts ensure that you are able to control the quality of the process product and materials used. Even while buying  handmade crafts or products, you can trust in the quality of the products.


One of the things that you can do while making a handmade product or gift is that you can make it to suit the recipient in every way possible. The endless liberties that  handmade activities provide you for the customization and fine-tuning of the end product to suit the recipient's personality, that you can make something for anyone.

You have the opportunity to make these things as personal as possible and at details that make your gift one of a kind.

For example, if you decide to make a scrapbook with a chipboard paper sheet for cover and lots of colored paper such as scrapbook paper or parchment paper for decorating the photos, you can choose only the photos that suit a particular theme and decorate with a layout that speaks to the recipient.

Endless options

You may not actually realize just how many things are easily made at home while actually enjoying the simple process of making something with the hands.

Depending on your level of scale and interest, you can make literally anything from a soft toy, a pair of clothing to a ceramic mug or a poster sized collage of their photos, only to make a gift that is literally tailor-made for them.

Not only will you be able to convey your feelings with the incredibly personalized handmade gift, you will definitely be able to fulfill the need of the gift for the occasion.

The element of surprise

A lot of people simply assume that making something by hand is a time-consuming activity that no one has energy for. But only people who understand the reaction to a handmade gift can inside from people will put in the effort.

Especially since people do not expect a thoughtful handmade gift that actually shows the amount of time and effort that must have gone into it, most people are pleasantly surprised while receiving them.

You can go ahead and try making something as simple as a bookmark on a piece of cardstock that you may have from a used invitation card or old greeting card and gift it to someone who enjoys reading books, and you will definitely see the look of surprise and gratitude completely adulterated.
