Boston Pizza Promo Code: Buy One Get One Free Pizza

Today is Super Bowl Sunday! What better food is there to eat during the Super Bowl than pizza? Boston Pizza wants you to order it from them, so they’ve got a coupon code going for a buy one medium or large pizza online and get another free.

Click here to order your pizza @ Bostonpizza.com now

  • Coupon Code: TOUCHDOWN
  • Discount: Buy one, get one
  • Expiry: 1st February 2015

This coupon is only good for today and you can choose pickup or delivery.

I am not usually a huge fan of chain restaurants. I find that the food can be too salty, not made with pride and pretty generic. But, I recently went to Boston Pizza with my family and my in-laws and the food was actually really good. Boston Pizza is a great place to go with the family as its loud, the kids meals are awesome and it is not overly expensive.

As for ordering pizza, I don’t have one near me, but if I did, I would definitely be getting this deal on Sunday. I won’t be watching the Super Bowl, but I can definitely participate in the tailgate parties!

My in-laws ordered a pizza that night, and I had some the next day as they gave me their leftovers and it was really good. I like the variations they have on their pizzas – not just plain ol’ pepperoni and cheese. They’ve got ones like spicy steak and potato and spicy perogy. If you haven’t had potatoes on your pizza, you are really missing out. I’ve had a potato pizza from Boston Pizza before and it is tasty!

I’d love to try the sriracha pizza next.

Pricing depends on where you live, but the mediums are about $25 and the larges are about $30 and up. This means you are saving $25-$30 with this coupon. Of course, you could order in doubles, like four or six pizzas, to get the most out of this coupon and save a ton. Let me know what you get!

Whenever you order from Boston Pizza, you should check the coupon forum out first!

Google Earth Pro Free ($399 Value!)

Posted by on January 31, 2015 at 7:00 PM

Google Earth Pro Free ($399 Value!)

I am sure we’ve all heard of Google Earth, the website/program that lets you view anywhere on Earth via satellite imagery and maps, everything from the grand canyon to the Pyramids of Giza. The basic app has always been free, but there’s a “pro” version which usually costs $399. Google have just released a blog post stating that they’re now giving away access to Google Earth Pro for free!

The above blog post is from Google and it details how to get a free key to activate your Google Earth Pro license. You should be able to grab a free key, download the program and start using it, at no charge. I’ve just done it and it only took a few minutes to download and set up. Once they emailed me the account details, here was the initial setup with the free license key:

Google Earth Pro Free ($399 Value!)

As far as I can tell, it’s an ongoing license and doesn’t expire.

In the image at the top of this post, I’ve taken a screenshot of Niagara Falls from the Google Earth app. If you look closely, you can see a lot of little dots – these are all links to photos that various people have taken there. I thought this was a pretty cool feature! Of course if you install this program, the first thing you’ll want to do is look up your own house. Google Earth Pro Free ($399 Value!)

As to the features that Google Earth Pro has compared to the free version which anyone can get, check out this table:

Google Earth Pro Free ($399 Value!)

So we can see that you can get various extra features such as premium high resolution images, automatic geolocation and super image overlays! One feature – map multiple points at once – you could use this if you’re planning a journey or a walking route. I’ve heard it said that it could be useful for hikers. Many of these features aren’t going to mean a lot to the average user… but a freebie is a freebie. Google Earth Pro Free ($399 Value!)

Bestselling eBooks from $1.99 @ Kobo.com This Weekend

Posted by on January 31, 2015 at 6:00 PM

Bestselling eBooks from $1.99 @ Kobo.com This Weekend

I got an email from Kobo about a special deal they’ve got running in select bestsellers online @ Kobo.com this weekend. They’re advertising some best-selling novels for less than $5… but prices actually seem to start from as low as $1.99, which is a really great deal.

As for the eight images I show in the picture above, here’s a quick breakdown of those titles:

Out of all the above titles, the one that caught my eye the most was Born in Blood… I am sure you can tell why, from the image above! But I haven’t actually read any of the above… since having kids, I don’t have a lot of time for books these days! Have you read any of the above? Got any recommendations?

If you don’t yet have Kobo and you’re not sure what systems and devices you can read these books on, here’s a quick list for your interest:

  • Desktop |eReaders| Tablets
  • iOS |Android |Blackberry |Windows

I have the Kobo app on my iPad and I have quite a few books on there. Sometimes when I am travelling, I will buy a cheap book in advance, to have it in the airport for emergency reading… without having to worry about carrying a heavy book with me. And Kobo often do special deals and coupon codes on books, through which I’ve found good offers on some popular titles and they’re stored in my app. For example, I have the Hunger Games and Fifty Shades trilogy both on the Kobo app on my iPad. They’re handy books to re-read if I am stuck.

Canvas Pop Promo Codes: 50% Off Select Canvas Prints

Posted by on January 31, 2015 at 5:30 PM

Canvas Pop Promo Codes: 50% Off Select Canvas Prints

Spruce up your walls with some new art work… or more specifically, your own pictures! Until the end of the weekend, you can get a 50% discount on 16×20″ or 24×36″ canvas prints at Canvas Pop with the promo codes below.

Click here to create your own canvas print @ CanvasPop.com now

  • Coupon Code: 16X20
  • Discount: 50% off 16×20 print
  • Coupon Code: 24X36
  • Discount: 50% off 24×36″ print
  • Expiry: 1st February 2015

Having recently gotten rid of my Christmas tree, I have realized just how bare the walls of my living room look. As such, I have been looking to make my own canvas and luckily, stumbled upon this awesome promotion from Canvas Pop.

Once you go to create your canvas print, you will have the choice between uploading a picture from your computer, Facebook or Instagram. This is particularly neat because it means you don’t need to fuss around with having to save an image from your social media account in order to then upload it to Canvas Pop.

You will also have the option between 4 canvas layouts: single, 2 panels, 3 panels or 4 panels. However, these aren’t all available in the sizes for which the coupon codes above are applicable towards.

To give you an idea of the prices, for a single panel canvas, you would be looking at:

  • 16×20″ print: reg. $55/ now $27.50
  • 24×36″ print: reg. $125/ now $62.50

From there, you can also choose extra features like a frame, edge options, effect options and a couple of others, but these come at an extra cost.

30% Off Everything

The cool part about Canvas Pop is that they also have plenty of other products to choose from like Instagram prints, photo mosaic, photo collage, etc. If you would prefer to create any of those instead, then make sure to enter the Canvas Pop coupon code: CAZ41P to get a 30% discount. Keep in mind that unlike the 50% off codes mentioned in the beginning, this one is set to expire at the end of the day. I stumbled on it upon browsing Canvas Pop’s site, so it’s possible that it will either be renewed tomorrow or a new code will be released. This isn’t a guarantee though, so wait at your own risk. Canvas Pop Promo Codes: 50% Off Select Canvas Prints

Shipping varies per order.

Treatadog.ca: $16 & Free Shipping For 1st Monthly Pet Treat Box!

Posted by on January 31, 2015 at 5:00 PM

Treatadog.ca: $16 & Free Shipping For 1st Monthly Pet Treat Box!

“Treat A Dog” is another one of the monthly subscription boxes, the likes of which we’ve written about here on the past on Bargainmoose. This time, it’s a subscription box for your canine family members, filled with treats and goodies for the doggies. And there’s an offer on your first box – it will be half price, plus it comes with free shipping! This means you can get a box of goodies for your dog for only $16 with free Canadian shipping.

Here’s a quick blurb which shows you what you are getting:

Treatadog.ca: $16 & Free Shipping For 1st Monthly Pet Treat Box!

When you are signing up for Treatadog.ca, you can select the size of your dog, in order to make sure they send you the right type of food and treats for them. Choose from small, medium or large.

Treatadog.ca: $16 & Free Shipping For 1st Monthly Pet Treat Box!

If you only want to take advantage of the first box for half price, then you will have to remember to cancel the service once you receive your treats box. You’re signing up to a subscription of pet boxes, but there’s no obligation to keep the service and you can cancel it at any time.

From this review on Subscriptionboxmom, it looks like it is a really nice mix of treats and toys for doggies. Obviously the contents change from month to month, but if you read that review you can get a general idea of what to expect. I think it’s very good value for only $16 with free shipping.

From the website, I think this might be a US company but I cannot tell – they don’t state anything about this on site, in the FAQs. Even so, all that could mean is that the products may ship from the US or Canada, I am not sure which. But as they’re low value anyway, you wouldn’t have to worry about getting hit by any extra customs fees or charges.

Note: I had some trouble with the domain, it was directing me between the dot com and the dot CA on some sort of never-ending loop. It sends you to the right domain depending on what country you are in, but hopefully you won’t have any issues with this!

Women’s Spring & Summer Clothes Now 50% Off @ Hatley’s Winter Clearance Sale

Posted by on January 31, 2015 at 4:00 PM

Women’s Spring & Summer Clothes Now 50% Off @ Hatley’s Winter Clearance Sale

Surprise! Hatley is having a Winter Clearance event but it is full of spring and summer clothes. Check out all of the ladies spring and summer clothes which are now 50% off @ Hatley. Shipping is free with a purchase of $50 or more.

I was a little confused when I clicked on Hatley’s winter clearance sale. I found a large amount of spring, and summer clothes on sale now for only 50% off. It looks like they are clearing out last year’s styles to make room for this year’s line.

I usually think of Hatley more for my daughter. They have cute clothes and quality (and funny!) PJs for kids that we are a big fan of in our house. Hatley also has an expansive line of clothes for women full of fun and modern prints. I found quite a great selection in the sale section for women. Watch the sizes closely as some of the selection can sometimes be dicey.

Check out this beautiful Batik Shells Dress. This dress was $64 but is now only $32. This dress is lightweight and breezy, perfect for a day by the beach. It has a tie belt at the waist and the length is intended to hit mid-thigh. Hatley says it is the perfect dress for a summer date night.

Hatley’s Red Stripe Anchor Breton Tee is cute. This shirt was $49.95 but is now only $24.50. This version is white with a nautical theme and thin red stripes. On the front is a graphic print of an anchor. You could easily pair this with jeans, white pants or a cotton skirt in the right colour. I like that this has a three-quarter length sleeve as it extends the season you could wear this. I might also pair this with a casual navy or black blazer style jacket with jeans. This one is only available in size extra small and medium.

I would also be silly if I did not mention that a few of Hatley’s amazing raincoats are on sale. Check out this chic Red Women’s Rain Jacket. This jacket was $169 but is now on sale for $84.50. This trench style jacket is a great pop of colour for spring. The inside is lines with soft cotton poplin. The coat has tailoring similar to a high quality trench coat, and the shape is beautiful. It also includes a removable hood for rainy days. There are also several other prints available for the same jacket. I have bought several of my daughter’s raincoats at Hatley and have always been impressed. Hatley does not use PVC in their raincoats which does not give them that plastic feel some other coats have. I am long overdue to invest in one for myself.

There are more great items in Hatley’s winter sale section, Make sure you check out all the deals for children and men also. Shipping is free if you spend $50 but I could easily do that at this Hatley sale with one or two items.

I also want to mention the great customer service I have personally had at Hatley. My daughter’s Hatley rainboots had a hole before the end of the summer just last year. I had bought them ahead two summers prior on sale. They sent me a gift certificate only asking that I send a picture of the product and the defect. I like Canadian companies that stand by their work and I will continue to return a happy customer.

Bosch Tassimo T55 Brewer in Red Was $230 | Now $84 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on January 31, 2015 at 3:33 PM

Bosch Tassimo T55 Brewer in Red Was $230 | Now $84 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Why dread Monday mornings when you could wake up and brew a perfect cup of coffee (or other delicious hot beverage) at the touch of a button? While you may not be thinking about Monday yet, you may want to think about this Bosch Tassimo T55 Brewer in red that is on sale at Amazon Canada right now. Instead of paying the original price of $230, you will save 64% and pay just $83.57. Shipping will even be included in this already low price.

The Bosch Tassimo T55 Brewer comes in two colours, black and red. While red is the only option on sale for this low price of $83.57 at Amazon Canada right now, I personally find it much more visually appealing anyway. Tassimo brewing machines are the only brewers with the much loved bar code technology. Simply pop in your preferred T-Disc flavour and press the Tassimo’s button to brew your perfect beverage. I personally love the Tim Horton’s French Vanilla.

With a fully automatic one button operation, it doesn’t matter how tired you are. This specific Tassimo brewer even has a 1.4 litre removable water tank which means it will be easy to clean and will not need to be refilled constantly. This T55 even lets you choose between strong and milk which is something my T47 Tassimo does not have.

While the Keurig may have more flavours available to try, I still favour the Tassimo brewers. This is definitely a great price on this Tassimo T55 brewer, I was not able to find a lower price at any Canadian retailer. Other retailers seem to only have the black model. Here is a quick look at what other retailers are selling this Tassimo T55 Brewer for:

Out of 97 reviews on Amazon.ca, this red Tassimo T55 Brewer still holds a strong 4.5 star rating. That’s pretty good. Here is one of the Amazon customer reviews that I found helpful:

The barcode reader on these things is awesome, which is why i prefer the Bosch over other single cup brewers. You can make espresso shots, where its not a whole cup of coffee. You can make lattes. You can do a lot more than you can do with the Keurig for example. You can also control the amount of water that by clicking the plus or minus signs on the side. The controls are easy to use and look nice.

Amazon Canada will also throw in shipping for free, since this product is over $25. Not only will you get free shippingbut Amazon.ca usually gets your order to you rather quickly. If you were to order this Bosch Tassimo T55 brewer now, you could expect to receive it in just two business days. Not too shabby.

ItFit Canada Promo Code: Exclusive 35% Off

Posted by on January 31, 2015 at 3:00 PM

ItFit Canada Promo Code: Exclusive 35% Off

I told you about ItFit not that long ago, when they had a coupon for 25% off. I managed to get a coupon exclusively for Bargainmoose readers, for 35% off.

Click here to shop @ Itfit.ca now

  • Coupon Code: BARGAINMOOSE
  • Discount: 35% off
  • Expiry: Unknown

As I told you in the last post, Itfit also has a deal, where if you buy two headbands, you’ll get one free. That deal still applies with this coupon code. This means that instead of paying $16 per headband, you’ll pay a total of $20.80 for three headbands. Because your total is over $20, you’ll also get free shipping, which is a nice bonus.

I decided to try out ItFit bands for myself. I have very fine hair and all headbands slip out of my hair. ItFit says these ones are guaranteed to stay in your hair. While wearing it folded, it wanted badly to stay in, but eventually, it did slip out. I think if I try wearing it unfolded like it shows in the photos, I shouldn’t have a problem. Also, because my hair is so fine, even the Lululemon ones with the elastic backing come out of my hair. I think I just have a bad head/hair for headbands!

While I don’t typically wear headbands, I was amazed how striking I looked adding that pop of colour to my face. Even without makeup, I felt like I looked polished, while just going to the gym. I have bangs, which make my forehead sweaty at the gym, so this type of headband is perfect for keeping them back without looking all disheveled to keep me from breaking out when I sweat.

There are quite a few prints and solids to choose from. I do love the paisley, but I got the peacock and groovy styles and love them both on me, especially when I’m dressed in all black yoga attire. I think these are also great for bad hair days when the kids won’t let you shower, as you can hide your greasy locks.

Check for more exclusive coupon codes in the Bargainmoose forum and save the most you can on ItFit bands.

Chefs Star Premier Automatic Milk Frother & Cappuccino Maker Was $90 Now $50 @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on January 31, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Chefs Star Premier Automatic Milk Frother & Cappuccino Maker Was $90 Now $50 @ Amazon.ca

The Chefs Star Premier Automatic Milk Frother, Heater and Cappuccino Maker was $90 but now is only $49.99. Shipping is free @ Amazon with a minimum of a $25 purchase, and this product qualifies!

There is no better way to start your morning on a cold winter’s day than with a delicious cup of coffee. This one button push milk frother, heater and cappuccino maker will help you easily create the perfect cup every time. Use it for lattes, cappuccino, hot chocolate or just a warm cup of milk at the end of a long day.

This milk frother is made of stainless steel. I have always noticed that when you are making a good coffee (or someone is making it for you!) a stainless steel carafe is used to heat the milk. I never really questioned why, just assumed stainless steel was superior. Food Service Warehouse has a great article explaining how to froth milk properly. In the article, they say that stainless steel is a better conductor of heat. This means your milk will heat much quicker in stainless steel than a plastic version.

Adding cream to your coffee means that it cools slower because the overall beverage is thicker and more viscous. By heating up the milk in a frother, your coffee cools even more slowly as both the coffee and the milk start hot. For another great article on the physics of coffee and cream, check out this great article by Modern Cuisine. You will be a well-informed coffee sommelier just in time your new frother to arrive.

Sears.ca has a Hamilton Beach Melitta Milk Frother on sale for $51.99 but it has a black plastic exterior. Staples has a Krups Automatic Milk Frother that is currently $99.97. Costco has the Krups version also for $115. Hudson’s Bay also carries a similar milk frother, the NESPRESSO Aeroccino Plus, which costs $99.95. After searching a little more it seems most of the stainless steel versions all run around $100. The black plastic versions are less expensive than the stainless steel but are a lower overall quality.

Overall people seem pretty happy with this product. This frother has 22 reviews and has a four and a half star rating.

Fast and fluffy! Good for coffee and hot chocolate and makes enough froth for topping two cups of drinks. The only slight drawback is that you need to rinse carefully. The interior canister is not removable for washing.

Most of the reviewers call the Nespresso version the gold standard, but this also does the job. One reviewer mentioned easily being able to heat almond milk. The same person also said you cannot heat commercial coffee creamers in this frother, which would not have occurred to me to try. Maybe just stick to milk and almond milk.

Mini Stereo Bluetooth Headset Was $9.89 Now Only $6.99 (US) & Free Canadian Shipping @ Focal Price

Posted by on January 31, 2015 at 12:00 PM

Mini Stereo Bluetooth Headset Was $9.89 Now Only $6.99 (US) & Free Canadian Shipping @ Focal Price

The black Mini Stereo Bluetooth Headset was one of the items that caught my eye in the email newsletter from Focal Price, this morning. It’s only a 29% discount on this item, but it’s a great price and I thought it was worth a mention. Originally priced at $9.89, it’s now only $6.99 with free worldwide shipping!

I’ve mentioned Focalprice.com here on the blog a few times, but in case you don’t know, they charge in US dollars and ship from the US. But as it is free worldwide shipping anyway, you won’t have to pay any more than you see on the site. Also, as this item is under our $20 customs limit here in Canada, you wouldn’t have to worry about any extra fees either. With the exchange rate, you’re probably paying around CA$8.90 in the end.

Focal Price regularly releases a lot of coupon codes, but I’ve tested all the currently active ones on this item, and they do not apply to give an extra discount. Certain very low-priced items on their site don’t qualify for further discounts, and this is one such item.

Here’s a quick note about the Mini Stereo Bluetooth Headset itself:

With this mini stereo Bluetooth headset, you can conveniently and safely answer calls while driving. It is compatible with all Bluetooth-enabled devices. The compact size makes it convenient to use.

This looks like the kind of item which would be ideal for driving, of course. As for the reviews of this item on Focal Price, there are 15 five star reviews, with an average rating of about 4.8 out of 5. That’s very high, so sounds like this is a great little item. Here are a few reviews for you to check out:

Mini Stereo Bluetooth Headset Was $9.89 Now Only $6.99 (US) & Free Canadian Shipping @ Focal Price

To price compare with similar items here in Canada, the likes of this similar DBPOWER one from Amazon is $22, but most others that I can see are the larger style. So, for the price, I think this is a great little gadget and worth the money from Focal Price.

75% to 80% Off Select Dresses @ Zara Canada (Prices From $13!) & FS on $50+

Posted by on January 31, 2015 at 9:00 AM

75% to 80% Off Select Dresses @ Zara Canada (Prices From $13!) & FS on $50+

I caught a glimpse of the dresses @ Zara Canada and knew I had to post. Right now, select dresses are on sale for up to 75% to 80% off with prices ranging from $13 to $23. Shipping is free for orders bigger than $50 or a flat rate of $4.95 for all orders under $50.

Zara has a few great choices for dresses right now on deep discount. A few of them would make a beautiful splash for Valentine’s Day. Sizing is a little spotty but it is worth digging a bit for some of these beautiful dresses.

I was peeking around some of the dresses at Zara and I found this beautiful Black Draped Back Dress. This dress was $60 but is now on sale for only $16. I absolutely love the draping on the back of the dress. I would not normally pick a dress with such a low back as I can only tolerate the alternatives to wearing a bra for so long. This dress however, is simply stunning and I would make an exception. If you have any big events coming up or simply want something romantic and sexy for Valentine’s Day, this could be your dress. The sizing is a bit spotty and it is only available in a small or medium. Ladies if you have it, you should flaunt it. I would probably pick a different pair of shoes than the black low cut Doc Martin style shoes with the silver toe the model is wearing.

Check out this flirty Satin Dress. This dress was $59.90 but is now only $15.99 and comes in a beautiful bright magenta colour. This time of year, I would probably wear this dress at home for my sweetie. I do not know how I could wear this beautiful dress out of the house in Canadian Winter without freezing. Once summer hit, this dress would make its way to the front of my closet. I love the crisscrossing straps in the back. I hope my strapless bra would cover well under this one.  I could see this dress working well if you have a Spring Break vacation in the works. This dress is currently available in sizes medium and large.

Take a second look at this Yellow Jumpsuit With Straps which was $39.90 Now $12.99. While a jumpsuit usually is not my thing, I bet I could pull this one off since it looks and swings like a shorter maxi dress. The yellow is a soft pastel that is perfect for summer or that Spring Break trip to Cuba you are now have planning in your head. This dress only comes in size small. I would throw this on over a bathing suit for walking along the beach. You could also wear it for dinner out later that evening with the right accessories and shoes.

As I mentioned up top, shipping is pretty reasonable. There are other items available in the sale section for Ladies, Men and Kids sections. It may not be too hard to reach the $50 minimum to qualify for free shipping. If you just want just that perfect black draped back dress, shipping is a flat rate of $4.95 for all orders under $50. You could also choose to pick up your items in store for free.

I do not personally own any of Zara’s clothes.  Please tell me if you order that black dress, I really love it but it is not available in my size. Bargainmoosers, are you a fan of Zara?

You still have five days to order your photobooks and get them before Valentine’s Day. I think I’m going to make my boys a photo book of our recent vacation in Cuba as a Valentine’s surprise.

I like that there are all sorts of different styles I can choose from including a travel photobook. The beach life is my favourite and while I usually go for an 8×8 style book, I want to do something larger this time. The 11×8.5 looks good to me. The price is regularly $69.99, but the coupon brought the book down to $28, which is fantastic! This is for 40 pages, and I can add more pages if I’d like at a cost.

The largest book that Photobook Canada carries is the XL landscape, which is 17.5×12″. This is great as a wedding photobook, as you’ll want something large for guests to look at or as a coffee table book after the wedding. Regularly $229.99, this book will come down to $91.99, which is a significant savings.

Photobook Canada offers free shipping on orders over $75. Otherwise, I noticed my smaller photobook for $28 had a $13 shipping fee on top. What I think I will do is make a photobook for my trip, one for the last year in review and one for my husband for our 10th wedding anniversary that just passed. Hopefully my family doesn’t read this, as they will all be gifts!

4 DIY Gifts That Everyone Will Love

4 DIY Gifts That Everyone Will Love

Every year my good girlfriends and I make Do It Yourself Christmas gifts for each other.  It sure beats spending $20 each on a present.  You can’t get very much with $20 these days except for a gift card.  Each year we are surprised at the creativity and ingenuity at the gifts we create for each other.

These Do It Yourself gifts are great for all year round, not just Christmas, so I thought it would be nice to share more DIY gifts that are surprisingly easy.

Hidden Book to Store your Valuables

4 DIY Gifts That Everyone Will Love

These are very expensive when you buy them at craft stores.  They usually sell for $20 to $25.  I bought one online a few years ago for the same price and it was a bit less “discrete” than this Do It Yourself one.  It was obviously not a “real” book because it did not have a title on the spine of the book.

This was made by going to Value Village and Salvation Army to buy some used books.  Look for pretty colours or catchy titles  and also look depending on the size of the book- the wider the spine, the more things you can put in the book (but also more work to cut the pages too!)

You will need:

  • A book
  • X-acto knife
  • Modge Podge glue
  • Lots of time (about 1 hour per book)

Cut the pages of the book with the X-acto knife (this requires quite a bit of effort because you can’t just cut the entire book in one go, it takes a few pages at a time).

Then seal it with Modge Podge glue and let it dry.

Cost:

Depending on whether you already have Modge Podge and an X-acto knife handy, it may only cost you $1-3 to make this great gift!

All Natural All Purpose Citrus Cleaner 

4 DIY Gifts That Everyone Will Love

Homemade cleaner is super easy to make and is natural without added harsh ingredients and unpronounceable toxic ingredients.  Not to mention it is super economical to make and a great way to recycle your orange peels.

You will need:

  • Vinegar
  • Orange rind
  • A spray bottle
  • A small wipe (you can get these at the dollar store)

Dry your orange peels and soak them in vinegar.

The only downside is that there can be a strong vinegar odour when you use it but it disappears quickly once you clean.  You could try adding a few drops of essential oil to decrease the smell.

Cost to make:

Under $4 (even cheaper if you have vinegar and a spray bottle handy)

Picture Frame Jewelry Holder

4 DIY Gifts That Everyone Will Love

This was surprisingly easy to make and it was an instant hit.  A lot of friends were saying they always wanted one but were too lazy to make one.  Although the downside is that this one is a bit more expensive than the others, especially if you don’t have the supplies handy.

You will need:

  • A picture frame (can be bought at Value Village or Salvation Army for $5 or less)
  • Spray paint (with primer preferably) $10 a can
  • Burlap ($10 for a meter at Fabric store)
  • A staple gun ($15 for a cheap one at Michael’s)

All you need to do is take out the picture and glass from the picture frame.  Sand it down if you can.  Then spray the frame with spray paint.  Staple the burlap with the staple gun.  I found some wire at a dollar store and stapled that as well, it’s handy to put bracelets or necklaces that otherwise wouldn’t be able to hang properly on the picture frame.

Cost:

It cost about under $8 for each picture frame jewelry holder to be made, which included having to buy a staple gun and spray paint.

Ring Holder

4 DIY Gifts That Everyone Will Love

This ring holder involves using a mason jar and clay and some paint.  It is a variation of the clay jewelry dish holder instructions here by Hello Natural.

You will need:

  • A mason jar to shape up the clay
  • Clay
  • Paints

Cost:

The most expensive supplies are the clay and the paints, however this still cost less than $10 to make, the more you gift, the cheaper each jewelry holder will be!

Bargainmoosers, do you have any fun DIY ideas that are easy to make and a great gift to give or receive?
