5 Of The Best Homemade Gifts For Christmas 2021


With the holiday season rapidly approaching, there’s no better time to begin to think about presents for those special people in your life. Whether or not you are in the enviable position of being able to afford the latest trending gifts and fashions for your family this holiday season, homemade gifts are sentimental, thoughtful, and altogether more emotionally impactful than anything you can buy in-store. 

With that in mind, continue reading for five of the best homemade gifts for Christmas 2021.

  1. Christmas Panettone 

There is scarcely a more well-received homemade gift nor a more delicious one than to bake a homemade, delectable present than a beautiful, icing-sugar dusted, packed with fruit, and carefully balanced with spiced panettone. 

Go the extra mile and lovingly personalize your panettone using fine icing implements and letter stencils to really make an impact with your homemade baking skills this Christmas. 


  1. Statement Cards

These days, the greeting card market is truly saturated with every sentiment from congratulations on a new job or the purchase of a new home to commiserations at a funeral and even the classic ‘sorry to hear your budgie’s friend’s dog’s car broke down.’

Handmade statement Christmas cards are a fabulous way to really get creative with your craft sets and stencils, experimenting with color, textures, styles, and themes to create a truly unique statement Christmas card for a loved one this Christmas. 

Take your time to individualize and personalize your cards as much as possible, and be sure to always choose themes and backgrounds that you know that particular person loves. 

  1. Winter Hats, Scarves & Gloves

As practical as they are, presenting fashionable, chunky knitted hats, scarves, and gloves as a gift this Christmas is a fantastic way to allow a loved one the opportunity to be as warm as possible in some truly one-of-a-kind knitted accessories. 

  1. Baubles

For those older members of the family and friends who appear to simply have it all, another fantastic homemade gifting option is to create your own line of extremely limited, magnificently decorated Christmas baubles. 

Unless you are an expert glassblower, it is strongly advised to start with pre-made glass baubles. Always remember to select the paints and stick-on’s carefully to ensure they are suitable to be used on glass. 

  1. Draught Excluders

For anyone from a young niece or nephew that now has their own bedroom, the couple who have just bought their first home, or your grandparents that do not need new hats, baubles, and cakes, think entirely outside of the box and choose to create a draught excluder. Far more brimming with potential than you may think, consider using their, past or present, pets as a template and, for even more sentiment, incorporate a collar with the pet in question’s name or nickname. 

Homemade and handmade gifts this Christmas are the perfect way to show your friends, family members, and loved ones just how much you love, respect, and value them this holiday season.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
