DIY Christmas gifts are more popular than you’d think, maybe because they’re much more personal, easier to please the people you know so well, or maybe because they’re cheaper than store-bought options.
Whatever the reason is,
We can’t help but love homemade Christmas gifts.
I’m speaking for myself here, but well, if you actually clicked on this article and came this far, I can only imagine you love them too.
So scroll down to check these incredible handmade Christmas gifts!
"Christmas is like candy; it slowly melts in your mouth sweetening every taste bud, making you wish it could last forever." - Richelle E. Goodrich
Knit Pot Holder
These potholders are really easy to make, any beginner on knitting can pull it off. All moms, and grandmas will sure love getting a set of these! If you want to take it to the next level, try knitting it customized with monogram letters.
I feel like if there’s a teen girl around the family, this would be the perfect gift for her. It’s such a cool, fun notebook that I’m sure any girl would love getting. Either to make it her diary or just a regular notebook, this special galaxy painting would be around a lot.
Naturally Scented Candles
Store-bought scented candles are usually not good for your home’s air quality, however, if you find the right ingredients and use only natural scents, you can still enjoy these amazing gifts. Isn’t this a lovely DIY Christmas gift?
Doggy Bow Tie
Don’t you think the doggo deserves a little treat too? Not only should you give him an actual treat, but add in a squeaky toy, and this fancy bowtie and he’ll be all set for the holidays!
There’s usually not many DIY gifts options for men out there, but when we find some, they’re just perfect. These personalized beer packs with reindeers are adorable and festive! Besides, they’re so simple to make! All you need are:
- Brown pipe cleaners
- Googly eyes
- Red pom poms
- Hot glue
Cookie Prep Basket
This gift is perfect for any person you know who loves baking or wants to learn (I, for one, would simply love getting a “basket” like this). It has everything you need to prepare delicious cookies for Santa, from cookie dough to spatulas, and it even comes with the tray!
For the workaholics in your family and friends circle, this present can be a really nice choice. These animal memos can be practical and make the office desk a bit more cheerful. It may look hard to get these done, but it’s actually super easy.
Get a couple of plastic toy animals, attach the memo holder, and use a bit of spray paint (try a glossy finish if you want it to be shiny)! Just remember to be careful when drilling the toy to attach the stick!

Rudolph Chocolate Bags
I first got this idea thinking about the kids, but I think this would be a great gift for both kids and grown-ups. It’s a hot chocolate bag mix with Rudolph’s face on it. Doesn’t it look adorable? Perfect for wintertime and the holiday season itself!
I’ll be honest, tea towels make me bittersweet.
I love how cute they are, and because I love them so much it makes me avoid using them because I’m afraid they’ll get ruined.
Anyone else feels this way?
Still, they’re a perfect and easy homemade holiday gift!
I found this to be a really nice gift for men too. The slippers are perfect to make feet warm during the cold winter season, and you can fill them in with the person’s favorite treats so they have something to snack on while enjoying a cozy night by the fireplace.
While we’re speaking of treats, this idea is perfect if you’re a baker yourself and like to hand out some sweets for your family and friends. Take the opportunity and make these adorable treat boxes to make it a simple, but cute DIY souvenir.
