Our first gift idea is a cheeky self-promo. Spoiler alert: like 95% of this list is a self-promo. I am a girl who likes to craft - ergo, a lot of the things I make other women would probably love.

These stylish wall art pieces are made from resin and can be totally customised to fit your girlfriend. Bonus points because this craft is super easy to make.
