Cheap Homemade Gift Ideas - Make Your Own Inexpensive Presents

Are you seeking inexpensive or cheap homemade gift ideas?

Aside from having that personal touch, hence personal connection, a good way to save money on gifting is by making your own homemade gifts.

This does depend somewhat on your level of creativity, but there are loads of ways to make your giving personal - as simple as baked goods or bath and body basket, as well as inexpensive.

A basket of cookies and cocoa will delight friends and family for almost any occasion - particularly around the holidays. They can be put together rather quickly and look lovely when they are finished. If you have the time, you can make a few different varieties of cookies, putting 3 to 4 of each type in a snack baggie to arrange in the basket.

As one of the cheap homemade gift ideas, a favorite cocoa recipe can be mixed together and packaged in a mason jar with fabric and a ribbon to tie around the top to make it attractive. If you have enough money, include a mug fashioned after a mason jar with a spoon and a serving size of mini marshmallows. Place the arranged basket in a plastic bag, secure, and add a festive bow according to the occasion.

Bath and body baskets are perfect cheap homemade gift ideas not only for women, but couples as well - say, for a wedding anniversary. Accomplish this gift by filling an appropriately sized basket with either homemade bath products or ones purchased for the occasion - just make sure the items are purposed for relaxation and a fair amount of pampering. For this cheap homemade gift idea, include candles - relaxation fragrance, in various sizes along with two wash cloths or a bath sponge.

If the basket is going to a girl friend, include a good book in the basket and consider a scent jar rather than candles. Though candles are very relaxing, scent jars are safer if young children are part of the household. These jars are easy to make and can be made in colors that will be appealing to any taste.

Just start the process about 24 hours ahead of time, because the 8 oz clear, unscented glycerin soap (melted) and the teaspoon fragrance or essential oil will need to be combined and allowed to cool as well as set for up to 8 hours. Add up to 10 drops of coloring before the contents set up. Include instructions to remove the lid about 15 minutes before using bath.

The dry ingredients of cookie, cake or bread recipes can be mixed and placed in canning jars for a great homemade gift. Just decorate the top of the jar with fabric and ribbon before giving it as a present. For holidays, anniversaries or even birthdays, a handwritten message (or picture) can be painted on the jar as well by using permanent enamel paints.

Scrapbooks are always welcomed presents - especially when pictures from the past are included. Try to find as many as you can, and have fun putting the pages together before passing the gift along.

Young women might enjoy a pocket purse from an old pair of jeans - usually the back pocket is used, but any part will do. For this cheap homemade gift idea, glue on or sew to the pocket lace, sequins, or other accessories. From the side of the jeans, a shoulder strap can be cut out, sewn together and attached to the purse.
