XMAS TIP 5: DIY Handmade Gift Ideas

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

Some easy and fun DIY handmade gift ideas suitable for all ages that you and your children could make this Christmas. There’s nothing quite like a handmade gift, I think they are just so thoughtful and personal.

One of the things I enjoy most doing in the lead-up to Christmas is hand-making some of the presents my family and I gift at this time of year. There’s just something so special about the personal touch of giving something that you’ve taken the time to make yourself.  I also love to receive hand-made presents, I really appreciate the thought someone has put into it. Not all hand-made presents need to be time-consuming to make, or require a high level of craftiness! It’s also a lovely way to spend time together as a family, have a session where you sit down and make some gifts. It’s also a good way to keep your little ones busy during the holidays, bust out some craft supplies and they can make something truly unique to give to Grandma or your neighbours. Have a look at these ideas below for some DIY handmade gift inspiration.
