DIY Christmas gift ideas


Handcrafted do-it-yourself gifts are meaningful gifts that you can give to friends and family during the holidays.

Joy Shimabukuro, Creative Director at HouseMart Ben Franklin Crafts shares some DIY gift ideas that are not only easy to make, but affordable.

Gift ideas include decorating a wood letter with photos of the person or their favorite items.

Another fun gift that’s fast and great for all ages are their spa items like lip balm, bath bombs and scrubs.

And, if you want some extra help, you can find DIY kits that provide instructions and all the materials you need to make personalized gifts like a bracelet.

If you’re looking for something practical, Joy suggests making a personalized checkbook cover.

You can even use it as a cover for a little notebook that they can use to help track finances or healthy habits.

Speaking of finances, another gift idea is a modern piggy bank.

All you need to do is buy a mason jar and change the lid for a slotted one, then decorate the outside.

This is the perfect gift to encourage a kid to set a financial goal for the year.
