Personalized gifts are great because of the time and effort put into making them. These gifts have your imprint and they say so much about you, the giver.

If you’re looking for something to give as a gift, here’s a great idea for you: DIY mini pallet coasters. You can give this for a housewarming or a birthday celebration – pretty much for any occasion. Because these coasters are fully customizable, you can paint or stain it in any way you want.

Adding a stain to the finished product gives it a more rustic appeal.
