I have gathered here for you a list of 5 creative simple gifts you can give this holiday season:

#1 – A Unique Card to Say to Someone You Love: “You are Special to Me”

There is nothing that says “you are special to me” more than when you create your own artwork to give to someone you love. As an example, I have included below a card I did for a friend of mine – based on the “Embedded Letter” technique :

Why don’t you give it a try? You can find here a video with instructions from Rick and Maria, the Zentangle Method™ founders.

#2 – A Set of Art Supplies to Create A Card

Another creative simple gift you can give is a set of art supplies. You can gather, in a box, the supplies needed to realize the cards mentioned in this post. For this box, you can look for some nice kits online or gather some paper, a pen, a pencil, some colored pens or pencils and wrap it nicely.

This is a quality kit I like and you can find it here.

#3 – A Distinctive Card for the Holiday Season

You can also make a creative simple gift with pen and paper such as this nice and unique holiday card. It doesn’t take long, and it’s very relaxing and enjoyable to draw this card.

What a reward to see the joy on your loved-one face, when you give them your handmade card!

You can find the instructions in French here and in English here.
