Handmade Christmas Gift Ideas

For anyone planning on handmade gifts, Christmas is FAST approaching. So I thought I’d share a few fun gift ideas I’ve run across recently.

Hairbows. Step-by-step instructions. And every little girl needs more hair bows! http://bowznstuff.blogspot.com/2008/10/how-to-tie-boutique-hairbow.html


Felt Play Mats. Wow… think of the possibilities. Takes playing with GI Joes or plastic animals to a whole new level!http://myplumpudding.blogspot.com/2008/10/felt-jungle.html


Soft Baby Blocks. Any baby toy that can be washed gets my vote! http://www.flickr.com/photos/londonmummy/sets/72157604381990885/


Superhero Cape. What boy (or girl) wouldn’t love to fly around the house with one of these?! http://thelongthread.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/01/superhero-cape.pdf


Fabric Dollhouse. Or you could make it a “barn” to hold plastic animals. http://uklassinus.blogspot.com/2008/08/fabric-dollhouse-tutorial.html

.Personalized Pillows. Who wouldn’t love something this cute?! http://oursidenotes.blogspot.com/2008/09/decorative-pillows.html

Favorite Things Mini Album. It has pictures of each of the grandchildren with three of their favorite things about Grandma and Grandpa. So cute! More pictures here: http://oursidenotes.blogspot.com/2008/08/few-of-our-favorite-things.html

Aack! I give up formatting this stupid post. Sometimes I hate Blogger! Sorry it’s a little funky!!


  1. I actually have some of the soft blocks and young kids do really like them. The only way I can get older kids to play with them is to make them into a basketball type game. Thanks for the other ideas!
