Hand-made gifts really do have a personal touch. Master one skill (like knitting) and you’ve got hundreds of ideas to choose from. Or, try a new skill with one of our suggestions below.
Almond Roca – Satisfy their sweet tooth with this decadent treat.
All-Purpose Spice Rub – Leave it to Martha to give us this all-purpose spice rub. Give it in an (reused) glass jar with a handmade label, and the recipient will think of you each time they use it.
Recycled Paper Ornaments – You don’t have to be in grade school to give a homemade ornament as a gift. I love that these are colorful and one-of-a-kind.
Paper Beads – Beads made from recycled paper are certainly in style, so why not make your own?
Repurposed Notebooks – Another way to re-use paper. If I could make one that looks even remotely as good as the ones in the photo, I would consider this project a huge success.
Organic Cotton Man Scarf – This simple and eco-friendly scarf is great for guys and gals.
Messenger Bag – Rather than the typical tote, this messenger bag (made from plastic bags) looks too nice to use for groceries.
Textured String Bracelets – Don’t forget you can make something with all that leftover string!
