DIY Christmas gifts

Here is a great list of things you can make yourself that your friends and family will love. 

Homemade Christmas food gifts

Food gifts are always a hit for the holidays because people love to eat. Giving someone something they came make later is thoughtful too because Christmas time can be busy. I love the idea of making mixes or things people can cook in January when they are cold, broke, and want a family activity.

Another great idea for Christmas food gifts is pies, bread, cookies, and other things people can serve for holiday meals. Who doesn’t want a homemade pie at the Christmas table? 

Homemade Granola (kids can help with this one too!) makes a great gift people can enjoy now or later. 

Soup Mixes in a Jar are wonderful for friends and acquaintances to make later on a cold winter day.

Cookies are sure to please any Christmas gift recipient. Who wouldn’t want some world-famous delicious cookies!

Seasoning mixes make beautiful gifts that can be used in so many ways in so many dishes. You could even include recipes for how to use them.

Creative homemade holiday gifts you can sew (with free patterns)

If you can sew, home-sewn gifts make wonderful Christmas gifts straight from the heart. I would love to have this talent or to receive anything from someone who does.

Even better is a gift that saves waste from going to the landfill and is a gift to the earth and the future as well. These gifts that use up scraps or preserve things for later are perfect for Christmas or any other time of year.
