We’re knee-deep in holiday spirit and we hope you are enjoying the season too! As you’re making your list and checking it twice, we want to inspire you to get crafty with DIY holiday gifts for friends and co-workers. These simple, creative and heartfelt gifts are just perfect for the people who support you every day.
Check out our DIY holiday gifts for friends and co-workers:
Drawer Sachets: Create sachets for your friends and co-workers so their clothes smell fresh and feminine. Simply whip up a mixture of rice, dried flowers, spices and essential oils and place it in a fabric pouch (homemade or store bought). Tie it off with ribbon.
Hot Cocoa Jar: Fill the bottom of a mason jar with hot cocoa mix and then top with marshmallows. Tie on a small bag of peppermint candies or cinnamon sticks.
Monogrammed Pouch: Buy inexpensive plain pencil or makeup pouches and stencil on your favorite people’s initials. Continue to design with glitter and other fun holiday materials.
Humorous Sign: On a canvas, print or paint a funny quote or ironic line that suits your friend or co-worker. They can display it on their desk or at home and think of you.
Peppermint Scrub: Your friends and co-workers will love their clear complexions and delicious scent. Make the mixture with sugar, olive oil, peppermint oil and crushed candy canes. Pour it into a jar or bag and tie on a scoop with a festive ribbon.
Mug Art: Buy inexpensive white mugs and decorate them in a holiday theme. Stuff the mug with a bag or ground coffee or selection of teas.
Stovetop Potpourri: In a cellophane gift bag add cranberries, cinnamon sticks, an orange, a sprig of rosemary and cloves. Your friend or co-worker can add water and cook up your fragrant gift to bring holiday cheer into their home.
Inspirational Stones: Collect smooth stones and write uplifting words on them such as “happiness,” “love,” “dream,” and “smile.” Or try a pun like, “You Rock” or “Rockstar.”
Cup Cozie: With no sewing required you can make a hot cup cozie out of felt, ribbon and other festive materials. Simply create the loop and glue on accessories for these clever and stylish holiday gifts.
Homemade Goodies: You can never go wrong with a delicious homemade treat. Get creative with holiday themes and try ideas like s’mores on a stick, reindeer chow or peppermint fudge.
Wishing you, your friends and your co-workers merry celebrations with these DIY holiday gifts!
