Another mini gift guide for the Friday Five today, this time focussing on DIY Christmas gifts! Handmade gifts are so heartfelt and a lovely gesture that they are often worth 10 times a store bought gift. It’s always nice to share any special talents you may have through your gifts. It’s also a more cost-effective gift giving solution if you’re on a tight budget this year!
Brownies or Cookies in a jar
Dry ingredients in a jar for some homemade sweet treat are a favourite for DIY Christmas gifts. Try these brownies from Six Figures Under, these Rocky Road brownies from Sweet Phi (pictured), or these chocolate chip cookies from The Happier Homemaker.
Gather up some pampering goodies such as some nail polish, manicure kit, face mask, eye mask, or bath salts and make a little homemade pamper pack. I love this Spa in a jar from Classy Clutter (pictured).
Ice Cream Sundae in a box
I love this idea, especially for a hot, summery Christmas! Gather up all the toppings you could ever want for an ice cream sundae, add some cute labels, some ice cream cones and cups and you’re done! I especially love this one from Smashed Peas and Carrots (pictured).
I love these! They are super cute and will definitely make for a unique present. It’s also super easy so just duck over to this tutorial at Poppytalk (pictured) to check out how to make these gorgeous mugs.
Mason jar herb garden
If you’re a little more handy you could make something like this amazing mason jar herb garden from Camilla Styles (pictured). It would be perfect for someone in an apartment or with limited spaces to grow herbs.
These are just five options for DIY Christmas gifts, there are plenty more out there but these are the ones that caught my eye!
