Christmas is coming and if you are thinking of trying to help your budget while still finding gifts people in your family actually want I might have some great DIY Christmas Gift ideas for you. I know that the idea of a DIY is daunting on the best of days but if you are planning ahead and have a little gumption you can definitely pull some of these ideas off!
DIY Chalkboard Serving Tray from Shanty 2 Chic
This is a great little gift for anyone in your life who loves to entertain. No matter who they are grandpa or grandpa will love this – especially if you use some great antique handles and add some personal touches yourself! You don’t even need to use a stain, perhaps they would love some BRIGHT colors added to their home. The sky is the limit and this makes it very approachable to get going on your little wood working project.
Marbled Nail Polish Coasters from Mum in the Madhouse
These little beauties are beyond easy to make and are easy to match with anyone’s home décor. Make sure to pay attention so you don’t create something that will clash with their already loved home look. After all it isn’t about changing anything it is about highlighting the beautiful things you love about the person and their space – so go complimentary colors.
Pressed Herb Candles from Garden Therapy
Candles are the best when the winter months are in full force, nothing is more cozy than a great scented candle and warm blanket. It is the best way to get comfy with a cup of tea and they are also a great gift idea. Making your own candles with pressed herbs and flowers from your garden is a great way to give a gift filled with love to someone you care about. Make sure to go pick some of that rosemary before it gets too cold!
Snowman Soup from Oh My Creative
Need a great gift idea that you can make with the kids you know will get a chuckle from friends and family? Then snowman soup is definitely going to be your answer. This is a little pouch to help a loved one make their very own “hot cocoa” and they even have a great little printable label with a snowman poem on the front making it that much more fun!
DIY Sangria Kit from DIYall
This is a great gift idea, not just for the holidays but for teachers and of course as a house warming gift. Nothing says we know what you need during the holidays better than a great batch of holiday focused sangria and if you make a couple of them chances are you are saving a pretty penny. If you look hard enough you can find those pitchers in some of the better dollar stores for under 5 bucks and if you bargain hunt early enough you can snag the bottles of wine at the same price!
All of these are great ideas to help bring you some inspiration for the holiday season – all of them would be completely tickled pink to get any of these gifts and I know that because I want all of them.
