Tri-Moms: Homemade Gift Ideas

Christmas is my favorite holiday by far! I love the reminder to focus on Jesus, the greatest gift of all, but I have to admit that I also relish the excuse to craft.

We don't give all homemade gifts, but most years the majority of the presents we wrap have been made in our own home.

Here are some of the gifts we've been working on this year:

Painted Canvases:
for my sister-in-law's laundry room

and one with a clock for my brother

Simple (non-crafty) gifts:

Even if you don't consider yourself crafty, you can easily make homemade gifts, especially for little ones.

Fabric and Yarn Gifts:
Quick Knitted Trivets made from upcycled t-shirts

No Sew Ruffle Scarf (another upcycled t-shirt)

Some other ideas: 
:: Find a free print online. Print it and place it in a frame. Easy-peasy.
:: Print and frame photos of the kids for grandparents, Daddy, etc.
:: Make simple ornaments with your children to give to extended family, friends, and neighbors.
:: Make and give a gift in a jar. Super non-crafty, fun, and useful, too.
:: Baked goods are always welcomed in my home, especially chocolate cookies that I can hide in the freezer for myself :)
:: Coupon books are also great fun because they spread the giving out through the rest of the year and can be customized to the recipient.
