If you’re worried about the cost of Christmas, but still want to give your family and friends something special, a homemade gift could be the perfect choice. Or, if you’re someone who waits until the last minute…. we’ve made a list of some of our favourite crafty Christmas pressies!
1. Spice up your life
We all know someone who loves to add some spice to their BBQ, wings, or steaks – create a custom spice rub blended to tickle their tastebuds. Perfect for any aspiring chefs and foodies on your Christmas list.
2. Marble-ous gifts for the home
If you don’t tell everyone how easy these are to make, neither will we! These marbled coasters look like they’re straight out of a swanky interior design shop – perfect for your style conscious pals.
3. A picture-perfect present
We’ve all got special photos that we’d love to share with family – whether it’s a new arrival, a memorable milestone or even a much-loved pet being utterly adorable. Make a gift they’ll always remember by turning your favourite photos into a lovely Christmas keepsake. Whether you’re a crafting novice or know your way around a glue gun, there are plenty of ideas here to suit every skill level.
4. Custom Cufflinks
Make it personal and use Scrabble tiles of their initials to make these cufflinks. We’ve spied similar items in the shops, and not only will your handcrafted versions be extra special, but they’ll save you a few quid!
5. Beautiful biscuits
Be warned – other biscuits may look boring once you’ve crafted these colourful cookies. Go for red and green centres for a festive vibe or add edible glitter and icing to suit your style. These beautiful biscuits not only make a great gift, but they also look magical hung on the Christmas tree.
6. Vintage vibes
We recently spotted some tea-cup candles on sale in a shop for around ten pounds each – the good news is that it’s incredibly easy to make your own for a fraction of that. Raid charity shops or the kitchen cupboards for pretty vintage teacups (make sure you’re not about to upcycle a family heirloom!) and with a few supplies from your local craft store you’re good to go.
