10 Handmade Gifts You Could Make This Week

Do you need some more Christmas crafting inspiration?

Or perhaps some quick ideas for those last-minute gifts?

As it always does this time of year, my home has become a bustling workshop of DIY gifts and projects.  I also have the tendency to keep adding more projects to the list.

“Oh!  That didn’t take as long as I thought it would!  Now I’ll have time to make outfits for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and while I’m at it I’ll make a new Christmas table runner and matching placemats, too, and maybe I’ll make a basket of goodies for everyone at the college, too.  That should only take every spare hour from now until Christmas morning!”

Okay, maybe it’s not quite that bad, but I can’t seem to sit still this time of year.  I’d rather be making something!

If you like to be making too, here are 10 gift ideas that you still have time to make before Christmas!

Handmade Tree Cards

Although the postal deadline has passed for mailing cards, there is still time to make and deliver a handmade Christmas card.  These paper trees are cute and quick to make!  via Artisan in the Woods

Homemade Spice Mixes with Printable Tags

Do you have friends, family, or neighbours that like to cook?  I set of these homemade spices would make a great hostess gift, stocking stuffer, or addition to a food basket.  via Return to Simple

Healing Herbal Salve – Made in the Instant Pot!

A traditionally made herbal salve takes weeks for steeping the herbs, but this quick version, made using the instant pot, can be completed in just 24 – 72 hours, with very little hands-on time.  via Traditional Cooking School

Pajama Monster Pillow

Do you have children on your gift list?  These pyjama eating monster pillows are quick to make and make a fun gift – maybe accompanied by a new pair of pjs, too!  via Artisan in the Woods

Animal iPod (or Phone) Cozies

Another gift for the young, or young at heart.  Adjust the pattern to fit any size of iPod or phone.  via Artisan in the Woods

Lavender Eye Pillow

Last year I made these for every lady on my list!  A yoga teaching friend also purchased an entire set of them for her class.  A welcome gift for anyone who deserves a little rest and relaxation.  Via Traditional Cooking School

Herbal Bath Tea

Another quick and easy idea for the ladies in your life.  Make one large batch to divide among your friends, or give a gift of several different blends.  You could even make a gift basket with several bath teas, a lavender eye pillow, and some herbal salve, for the ultimate pampering gift.  Via Traditional Cooking School
