Over the course of my blog, I’ve shared a few tutorials and recipes that would lend themselves well for Christmas and holiday gifts! Here are some of my favorites:
Homemade Sugar Coffee Scrub. Easy and quick to make. Would make a nice gift for a hostess or teacher.
Homemade Spa Gifts in Jars. Additional ideas on the homemade bath salts and scrubs. Easy to customize and very simple to make.
Candied Fruit Tutorial. I’ve candied ginger, pommelo, and citron (Buddha’s hand). While they all turned out great, citron is my absolute favorite!
Mommy & Me Aprons. Requires basic sewing ability and equipment.
NOEL Boxes. Cute decor for your home or creative gift wrap idea!
Brownie Mix in a Jar. Easy and inexpensive to make. Another good option for a teacher’s gift when paired with box of cocoa!
Peg Doll Nativity Set. Beautiful homemade gift idea!
Christmas Almond Bark. A nice treat to bring to a holiday party.
Homemade Coffee Liqueur Recipe. For the person that has everything.
Fruitcake Recipe. Because what would Christmas gift giving be without a fruitcake? Warning: this recipe takes at least a couple weeks to make and requires copious doses of brandy. Not frugal. Not quick. But, delicious!
Miniature Mince Pies. These things … are amazing. If you’ve never thought of making this traditional recipe, or you think mincemeat just sounds wrong, you need to take a second look. STAT.
Figgy Pudding. Another forgotten about, brandy-laced dessert from Christmas Past. It’s time to bring it back, baby!
Soup Mixes in Jars. An easy, inexpensive food gift idea that doesn’t involve sugar or butter.
Candles in Baby Food Jars. Simple way to repurpose old baby food jars. Easy.
Vintage Snowglobes. Adorable snowglobes using old jars. A fun one to do with the kids. Warning: these might turn out a little *too* cute and you might not want to part with them. (Speaking from experience here.)
Pear Vanilla Bread. Deliciously different sweet bread! Would make a nice gift for a teacher, hostess, coworker, or friend.
Will you be making your own gifts this holiday season?
