20 Creative DIY Christmas Presents

Sometimes gifts from the heart are the nicest kind of gifts. You know the kind of gifts I am talking about? A unique little treasure that speaks to you forever, that makes you smile every time you see it. Here are a few unique presents that you can make for someone special here in this list of 20 Creative DIY Christmas Presents.



Food gifts, can be made with love, and that makes them taste so much better, don’t you think? This Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola seems like a great treat. Homemade potato chip holiday favours could be scrumptious too. And, there’s always shortbread. That’s a timeless hit as a gift.

The DIY Chalkboard Christmas Tree is adorable and you can easily make that now, before the holidays. Your family will love it. And there’s always Homemade Pretty Body Scrubs. I have featured a few of those here previously, because they are easy to make and simple to package. Plus, my girls enjoy making them with me sometimes. In fact, you might want to make this pretty Body Scrub for someone special.

One thing I hope to make, and give, this season is the cozy movie night gift bucket. That would be a hit for pretty much anyone. I’d welcome a gift like that myself.

    A movie night gift bucket would be so much fun to make and give! I love giving and receiving DIY gifts. The gingerbread scrub sounds wonderful too. You’ve got some great ideas.

    I love these ideas. There are times when I don’t have a lot of money and doing something by hand I can save a lot of money and still give out a nice gift. I will definitely be checking these out.

    I just bookmarked this blog post. My daughter just asked me if we could give DIY gifts this year. Though I have no idea what to do. This will help.

    I was just telling my girls that we should make some great homemade gifts for my parents this year. Grandparents always love homemade. This is a great list!

    The DIY gift ideas are a great idea for Christmas gifts. I usually make my extended family gifts for Christmas so I will have to check a few of these ideas out for sure. Thanks for sharing the DiY gift ideas.

  • Jeanine

    I love DIY Christmas presents but sometimes it can be hard to be original and creative. These are all really great though, and I think I will have to see about doing a couple for some special people I have yet to buy for!

  • CourtneyLynne

    I love homemade diy gifts. It’s amazing how creative you really can get with presents around the holidays. I love all of these ideas.

  • Christina Aliperti

    I think DIY gifts are some of the best. It shows that someone took time to think about what you would like and then took the time to do something special for you.


    I wish i have a lot of down time to do all the holidays shopping. Unfortunately my work takes so much of my time and energy. Anyway i was thinking bout doing some personal touch on the gifts to be given this Christmas. I have some few mason jar all i need now are ribbons and what to baked.
