Giving handmade Christmas gifts is always so special. It feels really thoughtful because you’re not only giving a gift but you’re also giving your time.
On the other hand, this is the busiest time of year for many of us, and making gifts can feel almost impossible. But giving a DIY gift doesn’t always mean you have to spend hours making it. I’ve picked out 16 handmade Christmas gifts most of which can be made in an afternoon. There are some that can be created in under 30 minutes too. So no matter how much time you have or don’t have, there is something for everyone.

Which is your favourite Christmas gift idea? I’m definitely making the brass bookmarks as they are so easy to make and pair them with a book and that’s one gift done.

And last, if I can swing it, that leather piggy bank is just the cutest DIY gift for kids.
