When it comes to giving gifts, I love making them. I started making gifts when I could never figure out what someone wanted. Homemade Christmas gifts just say “You are Special” and that you took the time to make that for me! If you are having a hard time figuring out a gift for someone special on your list, then try making something.
I have thought and looked in store after store for the most perfect gift to give in the past. But, not anymore. I love the idea of giving something a bit more personal that was a homemade item like this Memory Ornament I gave to my mom after my dad passed away.
Here are a few ideas to inspire your creativity in a homemade gift.
These gifts are mainly for the gals on your list. What fun it would be to have a party to make some of these to give your friends, teachers or family.
We all have the “I can’t decide what to get for” on our gift list. Depending on their likes, here are a few examples for the dog lover, bird watcher, photographer, and baker.
I love this list since I love to eat, cook and eat! Anyone who loves to be in the kitchen, bake or just learning how to cook would love one of these gift ideas.
- Homemade Salsa in a Jar
- Christmas Baking Kit
- Shake and Pour Pancake Mix in a Jar
- Homemade Soup in a Jar
I know these aren’t technically “homemade”, but gift baskets are always a great choice if there are a few people who want to go in together to give a gift to one person. There are several items you could make to put in a basket. The coffee lover, gardener (my personal favorite basket), a mom to be or the new mom would love these baskets.
What ideas do you have for a homemade gift?
