Homemade Christmas Gifts Ideas

Here are some ideas for homemade Christmas gifts. They are cheaper and more personal which people really appreciate...

You can get great baskets or cool tins etc from thrift stores. Not only are they cheaper but you're saving the environment by reusing!

Bath salts are incredibly easy to make with ingredients you can readily find.
You can find funky jars at thrift stores!

Bath Bombs/Fizzies are fairly easy to make once you have the right ingredients. They are a little bit messy though :)

Jams are a great gift anytime of the year!
Here's some recipes for jams: Chilli, Marmalade, Strawberry, Blueberry and Spiced Peach.
Labels you can make yourself or just order ready made ones (or your own design) from places like VistaPrint and Etsy.

Cold pressed soap is a bit more tricky and expensive to make if you don't already have the set up.
Here is a tutorial on basic soap making.
Or you can buy some of mine from my Etsy store.
You can get vegan glycerin soap making kits which just require heating and pouring so you can make your own shapes etc. Here is one from Bramble Berry

Small treats are great gifts such as Rum Balls, Santa's Chocolate Salty Balls, Date Balls and Ginger Truffles.
You can display them in jars, confectionery bags or handmade carboard boxes.
