See the best easy homemade Christmas gifts. Christmas is around the corner. Most are finishing up their shopping. Gift-giving can get expensive however, it doesn’t always have to be.

Because it’s becoming crunch time with gifts. I’m sharing the best easy homemade gifts.

See The First Easy Homemade Gift Idea Making Homemade Cookies

My first easy homemade gift idea is homemade cookies. Everyone loves cookies, especially at Christmas. I threw these together over the weekend. These are chocolate chip cookie dough cookies without the chips. I will be sharing this recipe soon. This is easy and delicious and perfect for a homemade gift from the heart.

Because it’s so good I am going to make some for Christmas day. As a result of thinking of a new version of these, I will share them soon too. How does chocolate chip cookie dough with no chips and caramel pudding sound?

Here is a great recipe perfect for Christmas and now is the time to make this recipe because it gets better as it sits in the refrigerator.  

I also made these and they flew out of the house.

Add the homemade cookies to a sealed jar and they are the perfect gift to give to anyone in your life.  These also are great to have for hostess gifts!

I also like these to be placed on the table for Christmas day and let your family or friends take them home. These are great because it gives your guest something homemade for Christmas and a memory of the day.

Adding these to gift bags and packages so the family has another memory of something homemade from the heart.

The Third Best Homemade Present For Christmas Gifts

Hang Them On The Tree

Finding these wood slabs HERE I simply printed images and cut them with decoupage scissors and added them to the tops.  Using Mode Podge and adding these takes no time at all.  Again, these are easy and are gifts from the heart.  Homemade trinkets added to Christmas gifts often mean everything to loved ones. This lets them know I take extra time thinking of them.

This is a great homemade piece to also hang from the jar of cookies.

Slip string of some kind through the hole and it becomes a Christmas ornament.  When it’s hanging on your family members tree they will always think of the special Christmas.

Here’s another idea, buy a metal ring and during next Christmas, they can use it as a key chain.  Now how heartwarming and special is that?

My Fourth And Final Best Homemade Christmas Gift

Lastly, I bought wooden tags from the craft store. I simply printed the images out again. Using Mod Podge I added them to the tags. Next using different trims I have in my workspace I hot glued them around the edges.

Again, the reason I like these as small token gifts is because they will remember the day.

These also are easy to make and also comes from the heart. I am telling you I have made many gifts as presents over the years. I can honestly tell you they are so loved because they come from the heart.

The person receiving these can hang it on their Christmas tree next year and remember you every time they see this homemade gift. Or they can display it in a bowl with ornaments inside the home next Christmas.

So again, remember Christmas gifts can be large or small. Christmas is about showing the ones we are closest to they are loved, thought of and appreciated. Adding these to gifts or to their place settings to take home after Christmas dinner or brunch will mean so much.
