Creative Homemade Christmas Gift Ideas
I love the idea to fill glass ornaments with different kinds of dip mixes! And the flavored cooking oils in the beautiful bottles is a homemade gift I would LOVE to receive.
They’re both almost too pretty to use though, right?
The little “prayer box” made out of an Altoids time is so cute – I just love the way it’s decorated. Would make for a great homemade gift idea for your Sunday School class or teacher.
The ice cream sundae box is fun and such a cute gift idea for the friend that loves ice cream.
Now, the playing cards turned into “52 Things I Love About You” is such a sweet idea for ANY holiday. One of my children made me something similar for a handmade Mother’s Day gift and I just love it. It’s truly one of my most treasured gifts.
I really like the “Sangria in a Jar” gift idea too! We all have that friend who would SO love it!
I chose the “All of Me Loves All Of You” sign because I think it’s such a sweet saying for a DIY gift idea – whether it’s on a pallet wood sign or just handwritten in a note.
If you want a fake Christmas tree that looks REAL, take a look at these affordable artificial Christmas trees that look SO real!
The DIY snowman decorations are super cute, too!
Such a clever idea to get an inexpensive pitcher, fill it with lemons, sugar and a spatula for a ready-made lemonade gift. Such a simple idea for a gift, but so pretty!
And of course, for the grandparents, that sign is super cute!
One of my favorites is taking an old window and putting pictures in the window panes – it looks so charming on the wall!
And if you’re into making homemade sugar scrubs, a simple mason jar, ribbon, and a candy cane turns it into the perfect homemade gift.
Now the decorated clipboards idea is one I’m going to do this year. How clever to take boring old cheap clipboards and decorate them?!!?
And there’s another “repurpose an old window” gift idea – LOVE the saying on it!
Putting the dry ingredients for your favorite homemade cookies into a mason jar is a really easy and affordable homemade Christmas gift idea. I think it’s a super idea for your kid’s teachers – a simple, yet thoughtful, homemade gift.
Speaking of school, the reindeer lollipops are such a clever idea for your child’s class Christmas party, don’t you think?
LOVE this DIY idea! Cut book pages into pieces, Mod Podge them onto ornaments, add silver glitter to the cap, clear glitter on the paper and add a pretty tag – gorgeous! (would be STUNNING with pages from an old Bible or hymnal!)
