Every year, without fail, I find myself scrambling for gifts at the last minute. It doesn’t matter how early I start my holiday shopping, it just always seems to come down to the wire. My go-to for those last-minute gifts is always something handmade — you can never go wrong with something that was made with love and a special personal touch. Throughout the past year we’ve done a number of DIY projects, and here I’ve rounded up some of our favorites that would make excellent holiday gifts.
Homemade Laundry Detergent: This would make a really sweet stocking stuffer, especially packaged in a cute way.
Flower Soaps: Customize the scents and flowers you use to fit the personality of who you give them to!
Herbal Bath Tea: A thoughtful gift for someone who could use a little pampering.
Instagram Coasters: There are so many ways you can personalize these for loved ones, or they’d be great gifts for party hosts.
Mason Jar Cozy: Another great stocking stuffer or gift add-on.
Hanging Crochet Plant Holder: This one requires a bit more effort, but with a plant included it makes for an amazing gift.
Oil Diffuser: So simple and rustically beautiful.
Beach Glass Photo Transfers: Include these as little gift add-ons or make a special set for someone you love.
Homemade Cookies & Packaging: Perfect for holiday party hosts and neighbors!
Stamped Spoons: Pick up some antique spoons and stamp them with inside jokes and nicknames :).
Homemade Tea & Packaging: Make some homemade blends for the tea lover in your life and package them in unique ways.
Homemade Candles: This DIY is for citronella candles, but you can substitute other essential oils for citronella and follow the same instructions.
