Christmas Gifts Inspired by Scottish Spendthrift – Ebenezer Scrooge

Simple Christmas Gifts You Can Make at Home While Saving Yourself Some Money

Christmas is a few months away, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get started on your gift planning. One way to cut down on gift spending while giving Christmas presents a special touch is to make your own gifts. In this article, we will share with you a few different ideas for homemade Christmas gifts.

1. Homemade Mint Sugar Scrub

Treat a loved one to body pampering this Christmas! To whip up this homemade mint sugar scrub, melt one-half cup of coconut oil until it is a liquid consistency. Add a few drops of peppermint essential oil to give your scrub a festive scent, and then pour this onto some sugar. Place your scrub inside a small glass jar and, if you wish, tie a ribbon around it to give it some extra visual appeal – get your ribbons at your local discount store or at Secret Santa Online Store who do excellent deals on christmas accessories.

2. Old Shirt to Chic Apron Refashion

Do you have a loved one who enjoys spending time in the kitchen? Instead of buying a brand new apron, why not take one of your old shirts and refashion it into a chic apron? This gift will take some sewing skill, but your loved one will be sure to adore this Christmas present and you can save some money – see some sample designs at Fashion Ni as this is a really cool trend right now.

3. Slipper Goodies

Instead of stuffing stockings, stuff a pair of slippers! Find a pair of slippers that you are sure your loved one will appreciate, and then fill each slipper with small goodies. Candy, soap, nail polish, and lip balm are all excellent ideas.

Save yourself some cash this Christmas while giving your gifts a personal touch. Your loved ones will be sure to adore what you have whipped up, and you can have some fun engaging in DIY craftiness. It’s never too early to prepare for Christmas, so try these homemade gift ideas today!
