Which of the following 20 homemade gift ideas do you think you would want to make?
1. DIY chalkboard 2. Leather Cuff 3. Instagram Tile Coasters Instagram coasters – these are so fun for DIY Christmas gifts! These coasters are thoughtful gifts made easy. You just need some tiles, family pictures & modge podge. 4. Paper Tile Coasters Paper tile coasters are cute homemade gifts if putting your coffee mug on pictures of your family isn’t your thing… You can find a free printable pattern on pinterest facebook. 5. Felt Tablet Case Felt tablet case (You could do manlier buttons if you were making this for a dude. or do it with leather and line the inside with felt.) 6. Button Bookmarks 7. Zipper Clutch 8. Cute hand warmers hand warmers The hand warmers would be cute stocking stuffers and this same idea with bigger pieces of fabric would work for microwavable heating pads. Perfect for achy muscles, or just being pampered with one around your neck or under your feet. (ahem: good pregnant lady gift idea) 9. Monogrammed Door Hanger Monogramed door hanger – fun diy gift or even just a diy project! This type of home decor can be used on the door or as a wall hanging. It can be customized to lots of decor styles too. 10. Cutting Board Tablet Holder The one on the right is $35 at Pottery Barn, which isn’t THAT expensive for a super cute tablet/recipe book holder. But if you’re on a tight budget like us, you can make the one on the right with a $1 or $2 cutting board from goodwill 🙂 Here’s the source for the project. 11. Cookbook Holder Here’s a similar cookbook holder from HGTV. I love this one!! If you don’t have all the power tools they have, you can get the wood cut at whatever store you buy it at, and hand sand it before putting it all together. 12. Keychains Cute Keychains – these would be unique homemade Christmas gifts that could be customized for anyone. 13. Paint Dipped Wooden Spoons Painted wooden spoonsI think these are so cute! They’d be one of those crafts your kids could help with too. You can find an inexpensive set of wooden utensils at Walmart, Target, Kohls, whatever. Or you might have luck at the dollar store. And any color scheme would be fun. Just think about what colors your gift recipient has in his or her kitchen 🙂 You could also do a theme of food gifts and add some homemade snacks to a gift basket with the utensils. 14. Tic Tac Toe Game Tic Tac To – my Mom has a fun Tic Tac Toe set on her coffee table and the grandkids play all the time! You could gift it in a cute storage gift box too. e 15. Bath Fizzies/ Bombs I’m not usually one to give fancy lotions and soaps. BUT, one of the best gifts I ever got was after my first baby. A friend gave me a fancy bath bomb thing from Lush. It was so relaxing and smelled amazing. So I’m kind of tempted to try these handmade lavender bath fizzies as a good (and cheaper) alternative. All you’d need is a set of cheap mason jars & a few natural ingredients. 16. Monogrammed Tray 17. Homemade Lip Balm This homemade lip balm is one of those things that would be super cheap if you already had coconut oil around, or if you were making it for several people. I think it’d be a great stocking stuffer or gift for teachers. 18. Bird’s Nest Necklaces These bird’s nest necklaces would be a super easy homemade gift and they’re so cute. You don’t need any special jewelry making tools or anything either! 19. Stamped Washer Necklaces For these stamped washer necklaces, you do need a set of steel stamps. They run about $15 for the whole kit on Amazon. I’m guessing you could find a set at hobby Lobby or Michael’s with a coupon too. But, again, if you’re making them for several people, $15 for several gifts isn’t bad 😉 20. Homemade Bubble Bath Bubble Bath is such an easy diy gift. You can gift it by itself or include it in themed gift baskets with bath bombs or bath salts. This article has tons of ideas for homemade bubble bath!
