Christmas is a time to be joyful, caring, grateful and also a time to give and receive gifts.
Buying a perfect present for your loved ones can be a bit challenging, especially if you already gave them many presents over the years and you feel like you’re running out of options.
A present doesn’t have to be expensive to express your feelings. The best gifts are the ones that come from the heart and if they are handmade too, that’s always a recipe for success! Instead of buying something from a store, why not avoid the usual Christmas time bustle and make something from the comfort of your home?
You can create something meaningful, something unique and original. You can even personalize the gift to make it extra special. You’ll have a lot of fun and you can let your creative side go crazy.
Here’s a list of the top 10 DIY Christmas gifts which you can make for the women in your life – your friend, colleague, sister, mother or grandmother.
DIY Christmas Kitchen Towels
You can never have too many kitchen towels, right? These towels take very little time to make and they look so adorable. Embellish them with different ribbons in typical Christmas colors – red, green and white.
Clip Photo Boards
These boards are a perfect way to display photos in a fun way, plus they serve as amazing decorations in every home. It’s also an eco-friendly gift. You can buy old wood or metal frames and use leftover fabric.
To make the gift even more special, add a handmade card with Christmas wishes.
Kitchen Tablet Holder
This is a great way to reuse an old cutting board in a fun, new way. There are people who write down their recipes in a notebook, but there are many who follow recipes on the Internet, so this board is perfect for this purpose.
Clever and cost-effective, right?
Oven Mitt Stocking
We all know a baker enthusiast who would love to get this present. It’s simple enough to make and you can customize it to your recipient. You can include as many baking utensils as you want: wooden spoons, spatulas, rolling pins, whisks, etc.
Don’t forget to add a punny card, too!
Slippers Pamper Gift Basket
Who wouldn’t like slippers to keep them warm on cold, winter days? Instead of giving just slippers, make it fun and add a couple of things that every woman will love: chocolate candy, nail polish, shower gel, lipstick, earrings, hair ties (always needed!), the list goes on and on. Tie everything with a nice, silk ribbon and you’re good to go.
Christmas Bath Bomb
Christmas is a time for self-care and pampering as well, and what better way to do this than by relaxing in a tub filled with bubbles, listening to your favorite song and enjoying yourself?
This little bath bomb is a great idea for a gift. Aside from relaxing, it’ll soothe tired muscles and moisturize the skin. A real treat for the mind and the body!
Rustic Wood Candle Holder
Another way to soothe the senses is by lighting candles. Nothing says “Christmas time” more than candles. Instead of buying holders from a store, grab some small logs from the basement and make these rustic candle holders yourself. They’ll create a cozy atmosphere, perfect for winter nights at home.
Peppermint Foot Soak
During the winter, we often forget to take care of our feet since they’re not as exposed as in the summertime. The natural ingredients of this homemade scrub will peel off the dead skin and rejuvenate the feet. The peppermint smell is a bonus.
This project is super easy to make and it’s also wallet-friendly.
Hot Cocoa Mix Christmas Ornament
This one’s not reserved for ladies only – everyone will love it for sure! It’s two gifts in one: an ornament and hot cocoa. You can make different versions: white chocolate, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, the options are endless. Add some marshmallows for a real winter feeling.
Fringe Plaid Blanket Scarf
Scarves are always a great way to show your love. The great thing about this one is that you don’t need a sewing machine to make it. Just use your imagination and let your creative juices flow.
Although there are many DIY Christmas gift ideas for women, we hope you’ll get inspired by some of the projects on this list and you’ll make something beautiful and unique.
