More Homemade Christmas Gift Ideas

If you are struggling to find the money to purchase your loved ones the perfect Christmas presents this year, then why not make them a homemade gift instead. A homemade Christmas gift is so much more personal than one you have bought in the store. It will show that you really have put some thought into what you are giving, instead of just whipping out your wallet. Here are a few homemade Christmas gift ideas to get your creative juices flowing.

1. Homemade Soap or bathsalts

This is a great gift idea for the women in your life, whether it be your Mom, Auntie, Sister or girlfriend. There are plenty of free recipes online that will show you step by step how to make homemade soap or bath salts. All you will need is some plastic wrap or a pretty tub to put it in. You could even give your homemade soap or salts an authentic name, named after the person you are giving them to.

2. Homemade Christmas cookies or cake

This is the perfect homemade gift for the sweet tooth in your life. Dig out your old recipe books or do a search online for some simple Christmas cake or cookie recipes, then put on your apron and start baking. You could then take your finished product and place it in a fabulous Christmas tin, which can be purchased fairly cheap from, well almost anywhere.

3. Homemade memory scrapbook

I love this gift idea, it is so thoughtful and really shows you care about the person you are giving it to. You can purchase a really cheap empty scrapbook from any craft shop. Then you can fill it with photographs and special memories that you have had with the person who is going to receive it. I can guarantee you that this gift will be treasured for a long time to come.

4. Homemade decorated flowerpot

The great thing about this gift is that it doesn't have to cost you any money at all. You can go out into your backyard and find an old flower pot that isn't being used. Then dig out any leftover scraps of Christmas decorations, and start decorating your pot with them. You could then even place some soil into the pot after you have decorated it, and plant your loved ones favorite seeds into it.

If you are worried about looking cheap when handing out your homemade presents, then why not consult your loved ones first, and arrange for them to give out homemade gifts too. Whats more, homemade Christmas gifts will mean you don't have to break the bank to give your family and friends a present that they will never forget.
