If trekking around the shops at Christmas leaves you in constant despair, then why not try your hand at making homemade presents. I wouldn’t say I was super good at crafts, but I do have a little creative flair.
Hobbycraft sells everything in terms of crafts, so it’s a great place to stock up on your essentials.
Here are a few ideas that should go down a storm at Christmas, are quite simple to make, and will guarantee a smile on the face of the lucky recipient.
Plant Paper-White Narcissus into glass bowls. These wonderfully little fragrant flowers are beautiful indoors at Christmas, and if you time them right, you can have these tiny blooms in your house for the whole of Winter.
Create and design a homemade calendar using your favourite family photos.
Homemade Jams, Chutneys, Biscuits or other Edible treats, beautifully wrapped, are sure to put a smile on everyone’s faces.
Design some handwritten vouchers for things like a massage or a night out. Maybe a specially cooked meal at home in the evening. Tailor your vouchers to suit the age, gender, and relationship that you have with the recipient.
Why not give a beautiful, memorable photograph as a homemade present.
