Our kids want to get into the spirit of giving as much as we do. A handmade gift, though, is a great way to express their love, joy of creating, and heartfelt appreciation. These ideas will rev up those gift-making juices!
- A candy jar! This simple idea will sweeten the heart of any friend, teacher, or neighbor that your child chooses to gift it to. Fill an acrylic box with treats, tie with sparkly ribbon, and have your child address/decorate a label to attach.
- Growing up, my grandparents always loved the ornaments that my sisters and I made them. And your options here are literally endless. How about threading colorful buttons onto floral wire to make a Button Wreath Ornament? Glue a coordinating ribbon top and you are good to go!
- The family will be thrilled with cookies in the shape of your child’s hand. Package it up in a pretty gable box with ribbon and a label that your child created for a fantastic look.
- If you child wants to learn how to knit or crochet, have them craft skinny scarves for their friends. A great learning experience, occupies little fingers, and creates a beautiful gift – sounds like a win-win to me!
Handmade gifts are the most special because you fill it with your love, heart, and happy wishes for the recipient. Enjoy your merry present making!
