Nothing says I love you like a homemade gift. Get a jumpstart on those special handcrafted gifts with these homemade gift ideas.
A mug rug is a fun homemade gift. The possibilities are endless. Combine this with a mug and some hot cocoa or tea and you have a great teacher gift. I used my privative spool block to make these for my guild a few years ago.
For the teen on your list try a journal with a fun cover. Whether you use a single fabric or piece it these covers are fun and easy to personalize. Or a zipper bag to filled with candy or other goodies.
For the reader on your list, how about a book mark? I plan to do a tutorial on this soon. In the mean time try these ideas from Pinterest. Or a reading pillow for a child.
For your friends who sew try a scented pin cushion. I like to harvest lavender from my garden during the summer and use it along with crushed walnut shells to fill pincushions. Then I get a lovely hint of summer each time I use my pincushion. Or you could make a needlebook this post has 15 different patterns.
For those on your list you could try a hot pad. Or maybe these no slip dishtowels. Combine either with a ready made mix for an added bonus.
Wrap everything up with a drawstring bag and and heart shaped gift tag. Now your on your way to a heart felt, homemade Christmas.
