Homemade Christmas Gifts
It is nearly the season of giving and you might be looking to shop locally and support local businesses this year, but you may also be looking to be a bit more sustainable and get all DIY and make your Christmas gifts at home this year.
Making gifts can be a great way to show your loved ones just how much you care, and you can re-purpose items from around the home and support local business owners with all the bits and bobs you need to buy so it can be a win-win.
Here are some DIY ideas to get you started.
Homemade Christmas gifts - a DIY doormat
Use a stencil and spray paint to make a unique and personalised doormat.
Then every time your loved ones walk into the house, they can think of you and smile.
Homemade Christmas gifts - Cookie mix in a jar
Give the budding Bake-Off contestant in your life a new recipe for their repertoire.
Put all the ingredients in a jar and add instructions on how to make the delicious cookies.
Homegrown veggies or herbs
If you have a budding green thumb why not pot up some of your favourite herbs or veggies to give as a gift to your loved ones.
Pick up some fancy coloured pots from your local nursery, or better yet paint some old ones you may have laying around and get potting.
You could also get creative with some potted succulents.
Homemade Christmas decorations
Get crafty with the kids and make some homemade Christmas decorations.
Look at what you can use around the house, old fabrics, string, wood and coloured paint and make up some ornaments for this year’s Christmas tree.
Homemade Gingerbread cookies
Another one to make with the kids. Why not get creative and make some homemade gingerbread cookies, bag them up and give them to your loved ones.
