8 Creative Homemade Christmas Gifts Your Kids Can Give
All kids love receiving presents, but at Christmas, they should also be part of the giving. Creative homemade Christmas gifts are perfect for getting kids involved and not spending a ton of money. One year, I helped my daughter make personalized Christmas cards by stamping her tiny hand in ink and then letting her scribble her message with markers. Not only were our family members overjoyed to open this precious keepsake, but my daughter was so proud to have helped make something with her own two hands (Literally!).
Making personalized Christmas gifts is meaningful and a great way to save money. If you need help coming up with ideas, check out our list of 8 creative homemade Christmas gifts this season. And be sure to use iMOM’s Christmas Gift Tags to add that special touch!
1. Personalized Coasters
Buy plain coasters and some Mod Podge at a craft store. Then cut out some paper—be sure to make it a bit smaller than the coaster. The kids can draw a picture of themselves with the person who’s getting the gift. Seal the drawing to the coaster and you’ve got a priceless gift!
2. Watercolor Masterpiece
With only three supplies needed—paper, markers, and watercolors—this is sure to become a cherished personalized Christmas gift. You could find a piece of classic art and have your child try to recreate it, or show them a picture of the person the gift is going to and ask them to paint a portrait. Be sure to have the artist put his or her signature at the bottom!
3. Gift Basket
Children can select one of the 13 gift basket ideas or create their own gift basket idea. Then, they can help in the process of making a list of needed items, shopping, and assembling the gift.
Using iMOM’s Christmas coupons is a fun and personalized way for families to spread the love. They can be given from Mom to Dad, child to parent, sibling to sibling, neighbor to neighbor, and more. The best part about these coupons is the options are unlimited. If you need some coupon ideas, here are a few: Give a coupon for a free babysitting session, a long hug, a batch of Christmas cookies, a chore-free day, or even breakfast in bed.
5. Hot Cocoa-to-Go Kits
This simple yet creative homemade Christmas gift idea is the perfect way to spread love and warmth. In only four steps, kids can enjoy creating Hot Cocoa-to-Go Kits as a gift.
6. Printable Calendars
Let your children select and assemble one of iMOM’s pretty calendars for a loved one. Make sure they mark their birthdays!
7. Christmas Coloring Pages
Christmas coloring pages are great for getting even the youngest kids to participate in giving a gift.
8. Homemade Apron
This creative homemade Christmas gift has Grandma written all over it. Actually, it will have your kids all over it, but Grandma will treasure it forever. Take a solid-colored canvas apron and some washable fabric paint. Pour the paint on a plate big enough for your kids’ hands to dip in and have them transfer their handprints onto the apron. Get fabric paint in a bottle with a tip, and let them write their names by their hands.
How will you include your children in gift-giving this season?
