7 Original Christmas Gifts You Can Make Yourself ...


When you’re looking to make original Christmas gifts in this Internet age, it can seem like nothing is truly original.

Everything’s been pinned and re-pinned a few hundred times on Pinterest, making it hard to find any handmade gifts that your recipient hasn’t already pinned to their own boards.2

These quick and easy original Christmas gifts, though, are sure to impress everyone you give them to, and you will have a blast making them!

1. Snow Day Survival Kit

Let’s be honest: after Christmas is over, the only enjoyable aspect of winter is snow days. Make those glorious days even better by coming up with a “snow day survival kit” for the favorite people in your life. Stuff the kit with a soft blanket, comfortable socks, a hot chocolate mix, and maybe even a cookie mix, because what’s a snow day without a little bit of baking? Anyone you give this to is absolutely sure to love it. I’ve personally never seen anything like this, so it’s one of my favorite ideas for original Christmas gifts this year!

2. Your Own Artwork

Thanks to the invention of the Internet, it is easier than ever to create your own artwork in an Internet program and print it out to give as presents.

There are websites like PicMonkey that let you add text and graphics to pictures you like, making it easy to create artwork even if you don’t have an artistic bone in your body.

Whenever I make gifts like this for friends, I like to think of something that we have in common, like a TV show we both watch, a movie we saw together and loved, or a book we passed along to one another.2

Then, I pick my favorite quote or something else from it and create artwork out of it!
