Homemade Gifts

I am a huge fan of homemade gifts.  I love to give them and I love to receive them.  There is just something great about it…knowing that someone put their time and effort into making you something vs. just running to the store and grabbing something off the shelf.  This Christmas I will be giving all homemade presents.  I worried that people would think it was cheap but at the end of the day I sat down and really thought about it.  The holiday isn’t about the gifts you get or give, those things are just bonuses.  I am looking forward to throwing myself into making these gifts for my family and giving them something I really put effort into.  I don’t think you need to spend hundreds of dollars on gifts to enjoy Christmas.  So without further ado- here are the homemade gifts on my radar this year 🙂

Picture w/ your song lyrics behind it


Vase made from rolled up magazine paper


Art made from canvas and letters all painted one color


Fridge magnets! Great for kiddos.


Play-doh! Put in cute jars for storage.


Candy cane sugar scrub- bet this smells awesome!


Caramel/Chocolate covered pretzel sticks


Tutus are super easy to make and little girls love them


Cake Batter Balls- nuff said 🙂



So those are just some of the things I found online that I loved.  There are so many more things you could do if you had the right supplies- like a sewing machine. 

What gifts are you hoping to give/get this year?  How do you feel about homemade presents?
