Make Gifts They'll Love

By: Lori Thayer

I love to make gifts that people can use. So many of us have way more stuff than we need or want. This year instead of buying something, make gifts that your family and friends will love.

Make Gifts That Soothe And Bring Comfort

  • Bathing Beauties 
  • Candles
    • It's easy to make your own candles. I use Peak Candle for supplies. Schedule an afternoon and you can easily make dozens of candles that make gifts that are lovely and smell great. View basic instructions here

Make Food Gifts

  • Cookies – Cookies make a great gift. People love cookies and they evoke wonderful memories of childhood. Homemade cookies are easy to make and can be packaged beautifully as a gift.
  • Bread – Homemade bread is another fabulous treat. There are many lovely varieties you can make (not fruitcake though!). Check out the Artisan Bread in 5 days books for great, hassle free dough recipes.
  • Gift jars – make a mix for cookies, bread, soups, etc in a mason jar. Layer the ingredients to give it a pretty look and wrap with instructions and a ribbon.
  • Liquor – Make flavored liquor or even egg nog. Fruit infused liquors are fun to make and look very nice.
  • Infused oils

What homemade gifts are on your list to make this year. Share your plans in the comments below.
