1. DIY Colorblocked Wood Vases
This is one of those easy gifts for friends that requires only a couple of supplies and knowledge of their favorite colors and flowers. That makes this one of the best last minute gifts to make in a rush. I like to make these for friends after they redecorate – it adds a personal touch to DIY home decor!
