Homemade gifts are not only thoughtful, but they’re also extremely personal and can be cost-effective too!
Here’s a list of festive presents you can make yourself:
Get your hands on a fluffy ball of yarn in your loved one’s favourite colour and knit them a cosy pair of mittens. You don’t have to stop there – you could even knit a hat, a scarf, a jumper, and much more. You have plenty of options!
DIY photo collage
Make your own photo collage to capture special moments and memories! You can even personalise your own frame for that extra finishing touch.
Fill a hamper with lots of small things that you know your loved one will adore. This can include their favourite tea bags, chocolates, biscuits, candles, lotions, or arts and craft supplies – there is so much for you to choose from!
Homemade body scrub
This is really simple to make! Mix an oil of your choice (like coconut or olive oil), brown sugar, and essential oils (if you want to). You could even use finely milled oats or coffee grounds instead of brown sugar.
Gifting one of your loved ones a painting, especially if they love art, is a brilliant idea. This is something that they are likely to put up in their home and cherish for a really long time. Bonus points for painting it yourself!
You can use a wide range of materials, some of which you may already have including ribbons and old ornaments that you could upcycle, to make one-of-a-kind Christmas tree decorations.
How sweet is this?! You can use any fruit of your choice to make a delicious jam for your loved one to enjoy. You can get as creative as you like.
You can spruce up a small box you already have by customising it with paints and even gems to create a stunning jewellery box!
