100_0150It happened accidentally.

I guess it really happened by circumstances. Our family (my wife and kids) started giving only personalized homemade Christmas gifts to each other. When I explained how to cut cost by being resourceful, the truth is that some places require resourcefulness. We live in one of those places. As such, for the last three years we have had to make homemade and personalized gifts.

The unexpected blessing is that each of the homemade Christmas gifts I have received are now some of my favorite Christmas gifts. I believe personalized gifts will be appreciated more than store bought gifts, and your appreciation for personalized gifts will only increase over time.

50 Do It Yourself (DIY) Homemade Christmas and Personalized Gifts

  • Make a piece of furniture.

If you are not proficient with tools and things, this might be an even greater reason to build – surprise someone with your new found hobby. While the options are limitless, the best ideas are usually items for organizing or storing knickknacks. There is probably a closet in your home that could use a little organizing. Why not build a customized storage/organization center.

  • Coupon book. This is an oldie, but still a great personalized gift. Depending on what the recipient enjoys you can customize the book. Include service things like breakfast in bed, a day of help, and a night off. I suggest you put an expiration date to help motivate the recipient to use the coupons. If they have not used the coupon in a few weeks, give them a call and (lovingly) force them to use one.
  • Surprise them with yourself! Take advantage of on of the best airmiles credit card offers and you can even travel free. For example, Chase is offering $500 worth of flights for being approved for their credit card. Nothing says homemade like giving someone a hug for Christmas.
  • Make a silhouette picture. One year my wife gave me silhouette pictures of my kids. It is still a favorite gift I have received. Get a picture of the kids and cut out the shape of the head. Use that pattern to cut out a silhouette on black construction paper. Just glue the picture to a piece of colored construction paper and throw it in a frame. This is an awesome gift idea for family.
  • Scrapbook/scrapbook calendar. Find some picture that have special meaning for you and the gift recipient. Neatly and creatively compile those pictures into a scrapbook. You could even go to your nearest Hobby Lobby and for about buy a blank calendar. Use your scrapbook skills to custom design your own calendar.
  • Baked goods. Your neighbor or boss might just enjoy some cookies from Grandma’s famous recipe. They will probably enjoy it more than a gift basket you bought from somewhere.
  • Homemade gift basket. For just a few dollars you can buy a basket. Fill the basket with several of the items listed here.
  • Paint or draw a picture. The picture could be of a favorite memory, favorite place, or anything sentimental. If you specialize in a type of drawing or painting, make some personalized pictures for friends and family.
  • Create a CD mix with some of the recipient’s favorite songs. You could even put a group of CDs together with favorites from different decades or stages of your relationship.
  • Sew something. Kids think it is so cool to have a matching outfit with a parent. Sew mother and daughter a matching outfit.100_0152 One year my wife sewed me an organizing sheet for my tools. Fix up a favorite piece of clothes for someone.
  • Search high and low for a rare item. Using resources like the internet – can anyone say ebay?- you can get your hands on some rare items. This does not necessarily mean expensive items. Your grandfather might be amazed if you tracked down that spinner top he always used to play with when he was a kid. I guess you’ll have to do more than search high and low – a letter explaining why searching is all someone gets is not going to cut it . Search high and low and FIND a rare item.
  • Organize a family experience. Take the family somewhere extra special. I’m not necessarily talking about a trip to Disney. It could even be to take the family for a day of sledding or skiing. How about a trip to the farm for a sleigh ride? Consider substituting gifts with a vacation or family activity. I know one family (grown kids) that does not do any Christmas gifts anymore, but once every couple of years they use that money saved to all get together for a week vacation.
  • Make a hand mould with your children’s hands.

The nice thing about having kids is you can completely exploit their cuteness for a ton of awesome gifts. Just buy a little clay and let junior shove his hand in the mold. Any aunt, uncle, or grandparent will treasure your gift.
