Winter Survival Guide (35) ~ Handmade and Homemade and Full of Love.

Why not make some Christmas gifts for people yourself? Many people love the personal touch, time, thought and effort that goes into creating something just for them. If this is new to you, why not try making just one homemade gift, or part of a gift to add in such as a ‘stocking filler’?

If you are very skilled, maybe you are doing this already, and maybe you could help someone out who wouldn’t know where to start but who would like to give it a go.

We’re all a little more creative than we think, and sometimes we just need that little bit of encouragement to give it a try. 🙂

Some ideas for home made items:

  • Gift tags
  • Cards
  • Photo gift
  • Christmas tree ornament / decoration
  • A wreath
  • Woodwork
  • A drawing or painting
  • Jewellery
  • ‘Upcycled’ gifts such as bags, or decorating boxes to make them into gift boxes (I did this a few years ago – it was lots of fun)
  • A key-ring
  • Postcard
  • Hamper
  • Jam
  • Food
  • Cake
  • Knitting
  • Cross stitch / embroidery
  • A song
  • Anything else that takes your fancy….

 

Let me know of any brilliant ideas that you have that I have missed out of this list, I’d love to hear them and maybe even give it a go myself! 🙂
