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.
