Homemade Christmas Gifts – 15 Gifts to Make and Give

Homemade Christmas Gifts (4)

I hate to rain on your Halloween and Thanksgiving parade, but there are only 52 days until Christmas!


For those of us who make the majority of the Christmas gifts that we give away this is a huge wake up call. I know I’m going to have to work pretty much every day on something. It’s a little overwhelming. But if I’ve learned anything from watching 14 seasons of Project Runway, it’s that anything can be made on a tight budget. (Especially, if you have a room full of industrial machines and a kid-free zone. HA!) Make it work!

I wanted to share some great ideas for homemade Christmas gifts to give to your favorite people this season. Most sane people probably aren’t trying to make a gift for every person on their list so it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. In fact it can be quite relaxing and a fantastic way to get into the holiday spirit. Just turn on a cheesy Hallmark holiday movie and get making.
