Christmas is a time of sharing, a time to get together with family and friends and make great memories that last a lifetime.  Handmade Christmas gifts can bring a special touch to your Christmas morning and save your budget from the pain of buying expensive gifts.  Even if you are not the craftiest person in the world, you can make Christmas special with your own two hands.

Secret Stash Books

Make a handy place for someone to hide important things by going to your local thrift store and finding a relatively thick book to modify. Simply glue the pages together and use a craft knife to hollow out the middle of the book, leaving enough of the pages to produce a sturdy exterior. Now you have a secret stash book, which can be a great gift for adults and kids.

Cookie Jars

Cookie Jars are awesome Christmas Gifts too that you can easily make yourself with a ready-made cookie recipe in a Mason jar and tying it up with a bow. It’s an easy process that only requires Mason (or other canning) jars, some small squares of fabric, note cards, pretty ribbon and dry cookie ingredients like flour, sugar, chocolate chips or any other dry ingredient needed to make a specific cookie recipe. Just layer the dry, pre-measured ingredients into the jar, write the recipe on the note card, cover the top with a square of fabric and tie the ribbon around the lid of the jar to make a delicious Christmas gift.

Themed Gift Baskets

If you have someone on your list who loves bath items, food or just about anything else, you can make a gift basket that is uniquely suited to them. It is as easy as knowing what they are interested in and either creating or buying items which fit the bill and artfully arranging them in a pretty basket. You can use tissue paper or other pretty fillers and encase the whole thing in colored cellophane or wrapping paper, secured at the top with a bow. The items do not need to be expensive and can be as varied as the interests of the recipient.
