As we continue our exploration of wonderful DIY Christmas gifts that we believe people will actually want to receive, you’ll find even more ideas (over 20 of them) still to explore.
Are you ready for more ideas? I thought so…
DIY Pet Photo Art
Take a picture of their favorite pet (or pets) and then play with the image using a photo editing software. Once you have the effect that you’re after, you can print it yourself or send it to a photo printing center, frame it, wrap it, and place it under the tree.
DIY Candy Cane Lip Balm
Apple Cider Spice Mix DIY Christmas Gifts
A delicious mix of spices that the recipient can sprinkle on rice pudding, use in mulled wine, mix into apple cider or add to their baking.
DIY Wood Slice & Dried Flower Coasters
These delightfully rustic coasters are crafted using wood slices from a fallen tree branch and some lovely dried flowers. The flowers need to dry for about 6 weeks, so you’d have to start RIGHT NOW if you don’t have any dried flowers handy.
Or, perhaps, pin this one for next year when you can plan a bit further in advance.
Peace, Love, & Joy Wood Bead Tags
Perfect to adorn anything from a stocking to a bottle of fine wine, these rustic tags are created using some cleverly painted wood tags, some lovely white wooden beads, some twine and bit of ribbon.
DIY Paint Dipped Kitchen Utensils
Wooden spoons are a critical part of any kitchen, but it’s hard to find ones that properly match your kitchen decor. This fun DIY project lets you turn any plan old ordinary set of wooden spoons into a decorative set that the recipient will be proud to display on their kitchen counter.
Peppermint Sugar Scrub DIY Christmas Gifts
Sugar scrubs are great for the skin because they are a fantastic exfoliater, and – with the right ingredients – they smell absolutely delicious!
Or, if you prefer, you can make this Candy Cane version instead.
Whichever you choose, these sugar scrubs are -natural, easy-to-make DIY Christmas gifts that smell delicious!
DIY Picture Frame Mason Jar Flower Vase
I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. You simply cannot have a list of DIY projects without at least one that involves a Mason Jar.
This cute craft transforms your typical Mason Jar into a delightful photo frame vase. However, make sure you include a plastic cup insert to hold the flower water, or the picture will quickly be ruined!
DIY Tea Bag Christmas Trees
Fabric-Covered DIY Journals
A wonderfully personal DIY Christmas gift, these fabric-covered journals are beautiful to look at and provide a lovely spot to write down one’s daily musings.
This same approach can also be used for photo albums, for those who still like the tactile feel of printed photos.
DIY Chalkboard Mug Christmas Gift
Source: Wit & Whistle
My momma always told me to not play with my food, but she NEVER said anything about my coffee cup! I love the idea of using porcelain chalkboard paint to turn a plain white coffee mug into a delightfully customizable coffee mug that can go with your daily mood.
Best SHOT at Merry Christmas DIY Adult Christmas Gift
A fun and easy DIY Christmas gift for the adults on your gift list, this only requires some mini bottles of their favorite liquor, some red solo cup shot glasses and a printed tag you can get from Mama Cheaps.
DIY Christmas Card Ornaments
Take old Christmas cards and upcyle them into new and wonderful ornaments for the Christmas tree. An even nicer touch is if you can use the cards sent to you by the person you are giving them to. It’s like re-gifting, only wonderful.
We WHISK You a Merry KISSmas!
This clever idea uses a handy household whisk and fills it with Hershey’s chocolate kisses. Wrap it all up in cellophane and tie it with a lovely bow. For an extra special touch, the printable label design can be purchased from Etsy.
DIY Gingerbread Body Butter
Nothing says “I love you enough to not let you dry up into a cracked and flaky mess this winter!” quite like a jar of delicious body butter. Add some gingerbread ingredients to make a unique version that let’s you feel and smell like Christmas!
Lumps of Oreo Coal Funny DIY Christmas Gifts
As a fun gag gift for the person who may have been a little bit more naughty than nice this year (in all of the best ways, of course), bake them up a delicious batch of coal lumps using everyone’s favorite cookie.
DIY Christmas Ornament Pillows
Finally, beautiful Christmas ornaments that won’t break when they drop on the ground. Perfection in Christmas pillows!

10-Minute DIY Photo Ornaments
You can mod podge your way into some beautiful and personalized photo ornaments using some distressed wood as the base.
DIY Bath Bombs
You’d be surprised how easy it is to make these relaxing bath bombs, in whatever color you could ever possible want or need. Put them in a cute little clawfoot bathtub soap dish for that perfect final touch.
Holiday Crack Candy
Yes, it is actually called Holiday Crack Candy. You can’t make this shit up!
Rumor has it that this has caused more than one Christmas family feud over the last piece, so be careful who you gift it to. I don’t normally recommend DIY Christmas gifts that can cause a family to fight, but I couldn’t help it.
Remember, it’s actually called Holiday Crack Candy. How could I possibly resist?
