7+ Simple DIY Christmas Gifts

It is that time of year again. The time when we gather with family and loved ones and share gifts with each other. Our family is looking forward to this time of year, but this year we want to do something a little different. We are on a tight budget, so instead of buying all of our gifts, we are looking at some great DIY Gifts. I want to share those with you so that you can do the same.

DIY Christmas Gifts

DIY Peppermint Sugar Scrub

Peppermint Body Scrub

Do you know someone who loves to pamper themselves? Or someone who needs to pamper themselves? This Scrub is super simple to make and the smell, that cannot be described in words!

Easy Peppermint Foot Soak

Peppermint Foot Soak

Just the thought of sitting quietly for a few moments soaking your feet is a dream of many moms! A great gift for moms would be a jar of this with a coupon for babysitting time. What mom would pass on this?

DIY Yarn Gifts

It is no surprise that I would post something about yarn. My family has always been a do it yourself family, and my mom is Gaga Bebe from Gaga Bebe and Friends: Homemade Crafts. The kids love receiving these kinds of gifts from her, and I feel that they are ready to start trying their hand at making their own. This list should give us some starting points!

Reindeer Mason Jar Gift

Reindeer Mason Jar

Do you know someone who loves candy? Why not make their gift a little more decorative and make this cute reindeer jar to put it in! This is such a simple and cute idea that anyone would love!

Alternative Gifts

Road Trip Map Artwork

Have you been on a road trip that gave you some great memories? Why not make this little map and give it to your road trip partner in crime! This is a great reminder of the fun that was had and a very meaningful gift.

Upcycled Mason Jar Lids

Mason Jar Lids

We all have a fridge in our house, and typically that fridge is filled with memories. Why not hang those memories up with other memories? This seems like a great gift for the grandparents in your life.

5 Minute DIY Lip Balm

This is something that I have wanted to make for a long time. Why not use the excuse of making it for gifts to make it? I look forward to making this with peppermint, but I want to add some wild orange into that as well.

While we are talking about saving money during the holidays, have you heard of the Free Shipping Day? This was a surprise to me, but I love finding new deals when it comes to this time of year!

Hidden Savings

One more thing before I get busy on crafts, are you looking for a budget software to help you get and stay on track? Check out this free financial software from Personal Capital and see if this will help you get and stay on track!

What are you making this Christmas season for gifts?
