12 Homemade Gift Ideas

I don’t know about you but I’m a planner. I need to know what I’m doing next week two weeks ago. OK, not really, but when it comes to events and holidays I DO plan WAY in advance.  I was just sitting in my craft room thinking about Christmas and thought I’d put together a round-up of a dozen homemade gift ideas that I have personally made in the past. Here we go!

12 Homemade Gift Ideas

DIY Lip Balm

I made these little tins for a few of my girlfriends.  They are so fun to make and actually VERY easy.  My favorite part is decorating the tin!

Make Your Own Bath Salts

I made these lavender bath salts to go with the lip balm.  It smells amazing and once again… my fave was decorating the jars…ha!

Wine Cork Wine Charms

These are great party favors.  One wine cork will make six wine charms.  You can personalize them to fit any party theme or holiday.

Upcycled Vase with Flowers

This is a fun and easy way to upcycle an old bottle or jar. I prettied up a tequila bottle.  I didn’t give this one away, it’s actually on my kitchen table and I use it for everyday flowers.

Flower Cluster Headpiece

This was so fun to make and perfect for the girly girl in your life!

Personalized Mugs

I love these!  I made a “Mr. and Mrs.” set, great for a  wedding or shower gift but you can also personalize any monogram to fit that special someone.

DIY Serving Tray

One of my most favorite makeovers, this thrift store mirror turned serving tray is the perfect fit for the hostess in your life.

Hand Painted Wooden Bowl

Gracing every thrift store shelf you can find these wooden bowls.  Make them a little more modern with a hand-painted dipped look.

Nautical Inspired Rope Vase

A fun and easy, 15 minute craft, this nautical inspired rope vase is great for beach lovers.

Coffee Bean Sack Pillow

Upcycling at its best, these recycled coffee bean sacks are great for an outdoor patio set.

Heat Transfer Tote Bag

If you’re recipient is anything like me, his/her trunk is filled with recycled bags!  Personalize your gift with this heat transfer tutorial.

Burlap Stenciled Placemats

One of my most popular posts, I think I may do this one again! Make your own burlap stenciled placemats for your friends or even your pets!

    and blew me away, and I can tell a lot of brain storming was used
    to find these gifts. It makes the “chore” of buying gifts easy.
    My boy is hard to buy for because his preferences is a little eccentric, but there are
    one or two gifts here that that he’ll really be grateful for.
    So thanks for this article. This gift breakdown was very convenient as my cousin is a gadget
    lover. Also it would be i’d love to see if a monthly edition of this list made.
