5 Holiday Gifts You Can Make at Home


The season of giving. It’s hard not to get stumped on what to get that person who has everything, or that difficult-to-shop-for friend or family member. Give a gift that’s made with love, care, and intention this holiday season, and you’ll score some major points in the friend department. Read on for five holiday gifts you can make at home this season.

Starburst Mirror

This decor hack is loved by all, and costs very little money to make. In fact, you can get most of the supplies at your local dollar store. This starburst mirror takes any room up a notch with a stylish, modern feel.

Personalized Mug

Okay, maybe this isn’t entirely DIY, but this unique, one-of-a-kind gift hits the nail on the head. Order a personalized mug with a favorite photo on it so that someone special has something to smile about during every cup of joe they enjoy. Another option is to change up a standard white ceramic mug with some chalkboard paint, and write special messages the recipient can change out as they wish.

Copper-Dipped Shot Glasses

Highlight a bar cart with these incredibly easy yet beautiful copper dipped shot glasses. The ideal gift for the host or hostess in your life, these are best paired to gift alongside a liquor of choice and a homemade simple syrup.

Body Scrub

It’s wintertime, and we can all use a little more nourishment on our skin during these cold months. Make a natural body scrub using ingredients that are good for you and good for your health. Your friend will thank you for moisturized, softer skin.

Speckled Clay Keychain

The “where are my keys?” days are gone with a beautiful key chain like this one. Using polymer clay, these cuties can be completely customizable by color, shape, and size. These are best made in batches, which will make it extra easy to add on as a gift tag to all of your holiday gifts.

2020 has proved to us many things, and one of them is not everything has to be store-bought. Take advantage of free time and thoughtful gifts this year with these five holiday gifts you can make at home. Looking for more seasonal decor and gift inspiration? Check out our other blog posts today.
