Christmas Gift Ideas for Kids To Make

If you are looking for Christmas Gift Ideas that kids can make, look no further. In fact, these gift ideas are great crafts for all year round – be it Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or just a special birthday. I am a great believer in that kids should be making as many as their gifts as possible. The world is a commercial world these days and one of the ways, that we can teach our kids to be thoughtful is to steer away from the shop bought gift ideas and towards the homemade ideas. Here is a range of crafts that we have made over time, that hopefully will inspire you get crafty with the kids this Christmas!

    Funny I was just sat with your book planning our Christmas makes. Thank you for a great round up of such inspirational ideas.

  2. Awww Maggy, what a wonderful collection. I am determind to make more things this year.

  3. Thanks for these brilliant ideas – will try them out with my little ones. When I was very small we used to make batches of peppermint creams, coconut rolls, turkish delight, and peanut brittle with icing sugar and pink food coloring. I recall my grandfather saying it was one of the best Christmas presents he ever received.

    These are really beautiful projects for kids! I’d love my son to create his own Christmas presents. If your friend is a dog lover, you might want to give them a dog artwork (a painting or a hand blown dog glass figurine) for Christmas that is timeless, beautiful, a piece that gains true value in time, and would remind them of their love towards their dogs.

    There are some great ideas here for kids to make presents for others. When our children were young we always used to get them involved in making gifts for Christmas and birthdays.

  6. Some wonderful gift ideas indeed. We at nicoleandgabi aspire to encourage kids to think creative and let their imagination come out. Do check out our creative hand painted products. I’m sure you guys will love it!

  7. Thanks for posting these ideas! We are trying to do more of a homemade Christmas this year!

    Homemade gifts really have a great track of record especially for kid making gifts. Those are so simple and cute.

  10. Jessic says:

    A homemade gift from the kids is definitely different and would stand out among other commercial gifts! Much more personal and memorable.

  11. Nitin Maheta says:
