Over 100 brilliant DIY Christmas gifts related to homemade toys, home decor, fashion, beauty, food, and craft


One of my absolute FAVORITE memories as a kid was making homemade Christmas gifts with my mom and little brother whenever my dad was working out of town.

We sat around the kitchen table and crafted Christmas ornaments for friends one year. The next year, we baked zucchini bread for neighbors. And then somehow it became a tradition to spend a few hours with my mom making gifts for loved ones…

Looking back, I realize now as an adult, it was a way for our family to save money. But what it gave me was a lifetime of memories spending time around the kitchen table making special things for special people.

That’s more precious than ANYTHING money can buy. Plus, it’s just a good feeling to receive something homemade that someone put their loving heart and valuable time into.

So I thought it would be fun to put together a huge resource list of gifts you can make yourself, if the budget is a bit tight for Christmas this year or if you just feel like getting creative!
