Make Your Own Christmas Gifts

Have you done your Christmas shopping yet? Or maybe you make your gifts each year? There’s still time!

If you’re like me and you prefer to give handmade, here’s a few DIY ideas for you to make your own Christmas gifts. Each DIY doesn’t take longer than an evening, so these are great for last minute!


This Keyring DIY is an easy way to use up leather scraps.


You could personalise this coffee cup sleeve DIY with a more festive feel, add holly or a loved one’s initials perhaps.

Claireabellemakes DIY Curved Bead Cord Bracelet

These cord bracelets make up super quick and all supplies are easily purchased from most jewellery stores or eBay.

Vanilla Macarons by Claireabellemakes

Know someone with a sweet tooth? Macarons are such a treat and look impressive in a presentation box (I get mine from Lakeland).

Crochet Coasters by Lulu Loves

Crochet coasters will suit your tea or coffee loving friend and this simple tutorial is good for beginners.

The Sweetest Scrub by Ohnorachio

Cinnamon is such a Christmas smell, I am going to be making a ton of this festive body scrub for friends this holiday season. Best of all, you probably have all the ingredients in your house already.

DIY Christmas Stamps

I think handmade Christmas cards are the best and this DIY rubber stamp tutorial will help you make them in no time at all.


I’m a scarf lover. This hand stamped star pattern cowl is so easy it hardly needs instructions.


You can also find a ton of Holiday DIYs in this Handmade Gift Guide which I have some tutorials in!
