The holiday season is all about spreading joy and love, and what better way to do that than by giving heartfelt, handmade gifts? DIY gifts have become increasingly popular in recent years, as they allow us to showcase our creativity and thoughtfulness, while also saving some money.

From personalized photo albums to hand-knit scarves, there are endless possibilities when it comes to DIY gifts during the holidays. Not only do these gifts show that you’ve put time and effort into creating something special, but they also have a unique touch that can’t be replicated by store-bought presents. 

Whether you’re a seasoned crafter or just starting out, there’s a DIY gift idea out there for everyone. Get inspired by browsing through online tutorials or tapping into your own imagination. Some DIY ideas that float to the top include:

  • Custom ornaments
  • Delicious homemade treats such as peppermint bark or hot cocoa kits in a jar
  • Design-your-own holiday-themed mugs
  • Shrinky-dink keychains

Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman, is a fan of edible gifts. “I usually make a few batches of cinnamon rolls or lasagna in disposable tins and deliver them to friends,” she says in a recent roundup of the best DIY gifts of the season.

There are also brands that offer semi-homemade kits to create your own items – but ones that don’t require an advanced degree from Pinterest. Check out Wool and the Gang’s “knit kits” to make easy scarves or hats with step-by-step directions and Sculpd’s pottery kits for beginner-friendly, kiln-free pinch pots, trinket dishes or plant containers. 

Not only will the recipients of your DIY gifts be thrilled with their thoughtful presents, but you’ll also experience the joy of giving something truly one-of-a-kind. So, this holiday season, let your creativity shine and spread cheer with DIY gifts that will warm hearts and bring smiles to your loved ones.
