Homemade Christmas Gift Ideas to Make

I love making gifts but I never have a lot of time. I tend to only make gifts that are quick and simple, but I still want them to look great! Below you'll find some of my favourites.


I love bath and body gifts, they are so indulgent somehow. And pampering gifts are great gift ideas for the busy people in your life who need to be reminded to slow down and take some time for themselves! There are more bath and body gift ideas here.



Making flowers is such a versatile gift. Upcycle an inexpensive garment into something unique, or make brooches or hair accessories. You'll find more homemade Christmas gift ideas and projects on our holiday gift ideas for women page.


These next three homemade Christmas gift ideas are a little more time-involved but still straight-forward to make, and you can really stamp your own personality on any of them by choosing fabulous paper or fabrics.

For Men

Wondering what to make for your boyfriend, husband, brother or Dad this Christmas? These are a selection of the most popular homemade gifts for guys - you can also see more ideas on my boyfriend gift ideas page.

For Kids

Christmas-time feels extra-special now that we have little children. Although Sophie is too young to understand (this will be her first Christmas!), James is now 3 and for him it's going to be huge!! We've found in the past he is so excited about unwrapping gifts, but after receiving the first one he'd happily play with it all day and doesn't seem so interested in opening more. I'm sure that will change!

Here are a few gifts that our family have enjoyed, and you can find more on our homemade baby and toddler gift ideas page


And if you have kids who also want to be creative around Christmas why not set them up with some of these lovely kids Christmas crafts on my friend's website...

Creative Cash Gifts

Possibly the quickest gift of all is to give cash, but that can seem a bit impersonal, like you really did forget to buy them a present! But by folding cash in an origami design, you transform it into a creative and memorable gift. Pick one of the designs below or see more on our money origami page. All designs with full step-by-step instructions, suitable even for beginners.


Homemade Christmas Gag Gifts

For me, Christmas is about good times and laughter with your friends and family. So I've collected together some great homemade Christmas gift ideas to bring some laughter and get you all in the mood for Xmas cheer!

You'll find more gag gift ideas on our homemade Christmas gag gifts page.
