10 Homemade Gift Ideas

A gift is never measured by its price. A true gift is always measured by its meaning (and sometimes its usefulness too).
You don’t have to buy expensive gifts to show how much you value the other person. Simple ideas that convey true genuine feelings have more lasting and meaningful impact.
Check out these easy homemade gift ideas for Christmas, a birthday, or any occasion. Using these ideas, you can give everyone you know a homemade gift this year.

  1. Photo album containing photos of memories you shared together.
  2. “I appreciate you jar”  The idea simply is to fill a nice jar with slips of paper, each with a reason you appreciate (or love) someone.
  3. Paint a picture, if you can.
  4. The gift of tea: I love the idea of giving homemade Herbal Tea Blends as a gift. You can customize these tea blends to your hearts content. If you’re not sure where to start, here is a list of 10 different Herbal Tea Blends that would be very easy to put together in bags or jars for presents. Who wouldn’t want that as a gift?If herbal tea isn’t your thing, this Chai Tea Concentrate would also make an excellent gift.
  5. Compilation of favorite music: This is more of an emotional gift and serves to bring up memories that have special meaning for both people involved. Make a CD with all those songs that feature on the list of favorites for the person you are giving the gift to.
  6. Doll house: Searching for gift ideas for girls? What could be better than making dollhouses,provided you have the necessary woodworking skills.                            
  7. Message board: Have a friend who goes crazy about organizing things? Well, then the best gift to give would be to make a message board that they can use.
  8. Painted pots : This is a great idea for kids who want to give gifts. Provide them with pots, and colors and let them go crazy with different designs.
  10. Recipe book: "A book is a gift you can open again and again"...If you are giving a gift to your daughter (or son), then a great gift to give can be a hand written book with all the food recipes of the dishes that they love.
  11. Soft toys: Making teddy bears, rag dolls, or other plush toys for kids as gifts will make them very happy, How To Make Homemade Teddy Bear?
If your gift list is long and your budget is small,
Keep in mind that handmade items are not just beautiful but special too…
have a nice weekend! ^_^
