Making your own gifts not only lets your loved ones know how much you care for them, but also allows you to personalize each gift that you give your friends and family. This year, I planned my gifts early and made these easy-to-make presents for a fun and exciting Christmas. From knitted gifts to delicious jams, check out my DIY Christmas gifts you can make for 2015!
Homemade Canned Food
This is a Christmas gift that I planned ahead of time. Raspberry jam, tomato jam, salsa—these are all gifts that add a personal touch. This is perfect for giving to friends and relatives as they can be enjoyed by everyone and can be done months before, helping you make a dent on your lengthy Christmas list!
Knitting gifts for your loved ones is a great idea when you want to give them something that matches their personality and tastes! Knitted gifts can be as simple as dishcloths or a warm scarf for winter. Check out these knitting ideas!
Personalized Gift Baskets
The best thing about gift baskets is that you can put in items that you know your recipient will love—it can be full of baking ingredients and tools for the baker of the family, or a basket full of coffee beans, bottles of syrup, and homemade Italian biscotti for the coffee aficionado!
DIY Christmas Ornaments
As you can see from my previous post, there are plenty of DIY Christmas ornaments you can make for your loved ones. Whether you make salt dough or cookie cutter ornaments, friends and family will enjoy adding their very own personalized pieces to their collection! These ornaments don’t take up too much money or time to create, making them perfect for any budget.
Wood Block Coasters
Slim wood blocks are the perfect coasters for people who love to host! These adorable DIY Christmas gifts can be tinted or you can write a message on the surface for an even more personalized present.
