100+ Handmade Holiday Gift Ideas

100+ Handmade Holiday Gift Ideas

A handmade gift is, in my opinion, always better than anything that can be purchased! Full of love, time and intention, handmade gifts are perfect for family, friends, and that one person in your life who is impossible to shop for or who always asks for socks (you know at least one of those people, right?)!  Whether you’re pulling together food gifts, upcycling sweaters into pillows or turning an old chair into a planter, encouraging your loved ones to be more sustainable (by example) while showing them how much you love them with your own handmade gifts is priceless (and can save you a ton of money in the process)!

So, in honor of the upcoming holidays, what’s better than a big round up of 100+ handmade holiday gift ideas?  Nothing, right?  Right!  So, without further ado, I’m going to share a few DIYs of my own, several DIYs from a few of my favorite homestead bloggers and a massive list of all of the gifts I would love to make this season and will do my very best to complete in the next few weeks!


If you’re super good with power tools, these ideas might spark some action, too:

My DIY Wishlist (as well as a wish for more time)

As I mentioned before, I’m really hoping to have all of my holiday gift making and purchasing done before Thanksgiving, but with life being somewhat unpredictable these days (all days?) there are still several things on my list that I would love to pull together before Christmas including:

Whew!  Not sure I can get to it all, but a lady can dream and scheme, can’t she?

    It’s been a while since I’ve given or gotten a homemade gift. I’m thinking of making one. I think you’ve listed more than enough ideas here. Thanks.

    Great ideas… I’m gonna have to make a few of you fabric “paper” towels. I have old flannel sheet and towels that could easily be cut down and reused for those. 🙂 We are doing homemade gifts as well this year. It just seems like the right thing to do with the new direction our home life has taken. Have fun making!
