Here is a great list of things you can make yourself that your friends and family will love. Making homemade gifts helps you simplify Christmas and enjoy it more!

Homemade Christmas gifts food

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.

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.

Heartfelt homemade Christmas gifts

Think about some other consumable gifts that aren’t food for humans. Birdseed gifts, garden gifts, candles and other things all make wonderful gifts.

  • This Upcycled Hose Wreath would be a perfect gift for any homeowner to display on their door. You might be able to make it with what you have laying around too. 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.
