Ask your question

  • Apple cider vinegar – put apple peel and cores into white vinegar and let it sit for a week or so Then strain. Or Vanilla essence – vanilla pods in vodka – there are heaps of recipes online.

  • homemade relish, sauce and spice rubs – food things like mason jars with the dry ingrediants for cookies etc then all the person has to add is eggs and butter etc

    homemade beauty products like sugar scrubs

    if you have kids get them to draw a portait of their grandparents, aunts/uncles etc and then frame it as a gift

    get on to pintrest – and do a search for handmade gifts and you will be spoilt for ideas there

    I highly recommend adding something handmade to each personsgift – I am doing gift tags which will then be fridge magnets for use all year round!

  • Cooking & baking, candle making, Christmas wreath, Christmas piece in a flower pot/bowl with holly, candles, moss, pinecones and berries, handmade tree decorations, sewed angels and stars, etc

  • I love making books full of vouchers. I include coffee, outings, movie nights, etc. Just include what you can do and what the other person enjoys.

  • I love to bake and cook and make sweet and savoury treats at Christmas time. These treats look good packed into jars, wrapped in cellophane or in little boxes. I make bath salts – which also look pretty in jars. Hand made cards are also fun to make with a little voucher attached for coffee out or some other activity or treat.

  • There is this Kindle book for free today. Maybe you’d like to download it? Homemade Christmas Gifts: 14 Gift Ideas & DIY Home Decor https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B00FW6W8J8

  • Photo’s of loved ones in a beautiful frame and home-made cakes and cookies.

  • Generally at Christmas the only homemade gifts I make are food items, like cookies.
