I make presents and cards and do a lot of baking for gifts too. What homemade suggestions do other mums have for Christmas?

  • I have made jam, Christmas biscuits, and I’ve also sewn tote bags.

  • Any baked treats are always a win. You could also try making body scrubs. There are some simple recipes online for gingerbread body scrub

  • I always make fudge for my neighbors and work colleagues.

  • Making skin care products or candles

  • I used to make homemade chocolates – but with the changing health laws it’s just too risky!

  • I have made Christmas cakes for close friends and relatives.

  • I make food and slices for family – we don’t really do presents for the grown ups

  • I had an aunt who always bought me chocolates, they were from the $2 shop and really quite horrible. I hated that she wasted her money and one year I made her a batch of shortbread, she was so thrilled that now she makes very yummy biscuits for everyone at Christmas. This year I embroidered a number of tea towels and my aunt & I combined our gifts and tied them up with lovely ribbon that could be kept….they were a hit!

  • I embroider personal items like hand towels.

  • This year my daughters and I made shortbread for presents. Had I thought of it earlier I would have made up some bowls of mixed succulents – Next year I think :)

  • i love making homemade hampers because the christmas hampers at the shop are not that great to be honest

  • I do. This year I bought a cricut. I’ve been making teacher gifts. So much fun. I’ve done personalized diaries and baubles.

  • Thanks for the extra tips mums – I am going to be super busy and happily so in the lead up to Christmas! :)

  • We bake too for gifts but I’ve also started not making but creating boxes for families. So instead of individual gifts we’ve done a Movie box with ice-magic, popping corn, a family DVD. I’ve also make an icecream box with Ice-cream cones, spinkles, topping, sundae cups etc

  • I love making homemade gifts when I have the time. Biscuits and baked goods are always a hit and handmade decorations for the tree are a lovely idea.
