We’re pretty crafty folks. My husband is an artist, and I’m a tad obsessed with knitting and getting messy with my art supplies. Lucky for us, many of our family members asked for handmade gifts this year!
Nothing says love like a handmade gift. In the spirit of upcoming holidays we’ve decided to put together a list of our favorite handmade and DIY gift ideas.
I love this idea so much. Give the ingredients and instructions to make your own lip balm with unique flavors. I know a lot of young ladies that would LOVE to have this gift!

I’ve been looking for something fun to do with our blue mason jars for months now. This would look so cute in our homestead kitchen and would be great for the powder room too!

This gift is SO incredibly easy to make, and I should know. I’m the master of starting projects and not finishing them. This homemade vanilla only takes 5 minutes of labor and the rest is just sitting around waiting for the magic to happen. Start this project now so it will be ready come Christmas time!
For the sugar lovers in your life, make some of these cute hot cocoa kits! You can even make a handmade label to personalize it.

This scarf is soooo easy, so fast, and so cozy. I knit it up in about two hours and it was a piece of cake!
You can never have enough candles. Never. We run out constantly and as soon as we get some more bees in the spring we’ll be looking into making our own. This post by homestead honey is exactly what you need to get started making candles!
