All Unique, Handmade Gifts – Great ideas for presents you can make yourself for Christmas or Birthdays.
Hard to believe it’s October again and right around the corner are Thanksgiving and Christmas and then the whole calendar starts all over again.
It’s still close to 90 degrees here in Kentucky (meh) but I’ve started thinking about what Christmas Gifts I want to make for everyone.
Making personalized, handmade gifts for the people I love is so rewarding and definitely my favorite part of Christmas.
Here is a wonderful array of easy handmade gift ideas for Christmas or Birthday presents that you can make yourself.
There are several ideas (with tutorials) for the cooks and bakers in your life such as the Etched Pyrex Baking Dish, Tie Dyed Kitchen Towels and Rosemary Infused Olive Oil.
For your Moms, Girlfriends and Daughters, we have a few DIY Jewelry options as well as a DIY Leather Bracelet for the Men.
There are also Vanilla Mint Sugar Scrub and Marbled Goat Milk Soap recipes. If you’re looking for more homemade Bath and Body recipes, see my DIY Beauty Recipes and Gift Ideas post.
