So many people struggle this time of year with the added pressures of gift giving, so I found some clever homemade gift ideas that can help make it a little easier. I think people love to receive handmade gifts!

Including this homemade smores kit, who wouldn’t love to receive this?

These dipped pretzel sticks are so easy and fun for the kids too! The options are endless as to what you can dip them in.

Know a vodka drinker? Vodka infused with lemons, limes or vanilla would be nice!

Another good idea is to make your own homemade salsa or pesto, yum!

Vanilla extract, I like the pretty labels too.

Play dough scented with holiday cheer is a great idea for kids.

Do you like to bake? Embellish cellophane bags with pretty ribbons and wow them!

Bath salts are always a nice idea and pretty too.

I love the cute popsicle stick puzzle idea for kids, great idea!

Another good one for kids, discovery bottles with food coloring, glitter and what ever else you can add for fun. How about coins, shells, small rocks, buttons, little toys or whatever!

Do you have a homemade spice rub that you love, well then share it!

A homemade caramel sauce would make a sweet gift.

These would make nice gifts for your neighbors, kids could easily help make and hand these out.

A very simple  jar of candy is so easy and pretty too.

Who wouldn’t want some  chocolate dipped strawberries?

An easy ornament made from cinnamon sticks, greens and jingle bells.

Snack bags made pretty with ribbon, super easy and affordable!

Potpourri in cute little bags is a classic gift.

Now its time to get busy! Happy Christmas!
