Homemade Christmas Gifts

I love to make gifts for my family and friends – it gives personal touch, and it makes the gift really unique too.

I’ve rounded up a fab selection 60+ homemade Christmas gifts so that you don’t have to worry about searching far and wide online!

There is a variety of ideas and inspiration, that I’ve broken down into three categories – recipes/food gifts; crafted gifts; and pamper gifts.

Some of the posts may not be gift specific, but decant into and decorate a cello bag/jar/box etc., and they can easily be turned into wonderful homemade Christmas gifts.

Go one step beyond and make several food items and bundle up into a gift basket. The same goes for the pamper gift ideas that are on this post – maybe make a scrub, bath bomb and a bar of soap and place in a gift box with some other bathroom supplies like a bath scrunchy, flannel, or pumice stone.

Create Christmas was born in 2012, and is now in its 7th year! I share as many festive ideas as I can – my vision for this blog is to think up the ideas so that you don’t have to!
