10 Homemade Holiday Gifts

With the holiday closing in on us, I am sure many of you are doing the last minute gift scramble so prevalent in these final days before Christmas. Rather than throwing money at the wall and going with whatever it sticks to, instead of just grabbing another gift card from the big box stores, why not get creative and craft up some beautiful, thoughtful homemade gifts this year?

Drop the cottonball snowmen, leave the popsicle sticks in the popsicles and leave the salt dough for the kids. Finally put away, I repeat, put away the glitter. Spread the holiday cheer with some of my favorite sweet (but sometimes savory) and simple handmade holiday gifts.

All-Purpose All Natural Cleaner

While I realize that homemade cleaner may feel like an odd, less than thoughtful gift in comparison to some of the other, it may be just the perfect gift for that friend or family member you know who is working to clean up their life. Once they have their first bottle you created for them, send them the link to make their own refills. Printable label included.
