Christmas is most definitely one big occasion for showering gifts on them, but rather than going for the usual boring ones how about making something exciting on your own. Those who have the creativity and enthusiasm to do something different, they would enjoy making some Christmas gifts rather than buying them.

Christmas is the season of Winters and snow, and everyone buys or gifts warm clothes for their family and friends but keeping in mind the home made presents, you can knit, or weave a comfortable sweater, muffler, cap , gloves or even cute socks for your loved ones.

A Memory Photo frame
Think about the person whom you have to gift something and then start digging in some old pictures of you two together, preferably something that can pleasantly surprise them and remind them of a lovely time together. If you don't have such a picture then you can draw a replica of any special memory in black and white and get the picture framed in a cardboard frame made by you. This will not only stir up some old memories but also the emotions and love that they already have for you.

Homemade tea cup candles
Candles are one of the most popular decorative item during festivals, then why can't you make presents of them. You can indeed, and you can in fact make candles at home and present them to your friends. With wax from old candles, craft store wicks, and old teacups, you can make your own tea cup candles gift items.

Your fancy tea cup candles are ready , you can pack them in any old box, decorated with colored paper and ribbons and give them as handmade Christmas gifts.

These home made gifts do not necessarily need a genius from you, a little creativity and willingness to make efforts for your loved ones is all they take.
