Since gift-giving season is upon us, I thought I’d share some awesome ideas for handmade gifts!
It’s easy to hit the stores on Black Friday to shop, but what about making something by hand that your friends and family will cherish because it was handmade… just for them?
Here are some fabulous Handmade Gift Ideas, beginning with my November Creative Team post over at Kenarry: Ideas for the Home:
I made this precious little photo frame with fabric from Little House on the Prairie Fabrics… and they’re offering an awesome giveaway to celebrate the launch of the Little House on the Prairie® fabric collections by Andover Fabrics. Do you remember watching the TV show, Little House on the Prairie? Now today’s generation of families can enjoy the show on DVD… and you can enter to win the complete collection of episodes!

And now for some more great handmade gift ideas…
This leather necklace from Made in a Day. Exquisite!
Then there’s this fun spin on a picture frame! Such a cool idea from A Turtle’s Life for Me:
I am absolutely in love with these Sweater Mittens from Feathering My Nest! Oh, my goodness – you don’t have to knit, folks… they’re made from a sweater – how genius is that?!
What a great gift for girlfriends, teachers, hair stylists or nail techs… this relaxing Bath Soak from Carolyn’s Homework:
And I have a confession to make! I go to bed with one of these every night during fall and winter! Mine’s a little different from these Rice Packs from Creatively Renewed, but it accomplishes the same thing – no more cold feet at bedtime!
And who can imagine handmade gifts without including mason jar gifts? There are literally thousands of ideas using mason jars! Here are a few:
It’s hard to beat a mason jar gift that’s also a food gift.. like this one:
And speaking of food gifts, show up Christmas morning with these muffins from The Birch Cottage and you’re sure to hear raves!
And of course, we all need hostess gift ideas during the holidays. Take a look at these!
Bring this DIY Wine Stopper from 2 Bees in a Pod, along with a bottle of wine and your gift will be a hit for sure!
How can you beat fresh flowers on the table… or as a hostess gift? Sarah at Flourish and Knot is a gifted flower arranger and she makes it sound like something we could all do!
These painted wine glasses from Kenarry:Ideas for the Home are simply darling! And can coordinate with any party theme – just think of the possibilities! Wouldn’t they be great for New Year’s in gold and silver, or black and white?
I hope you’ve enjoyed all these great ideas for handmade gifts. Which one is your favorite?
