Plus, in this time of economic hardships, it is sometimes the only way that some families can exchange gifts. Whatever the reason, a hand crafted gift is without a doubt the most personal gift of all.
Just because handmade gifts are inexpensive, that doesn't mean they have to be "cheap". Clothing is always welcome by most. They can be tailored for a perfect fit in any of a multitude of custom colors. Sweaters, in particular, can be very creative Christmas presents - designs and patterns of your choice can literally be woven into the very fabric. Hats, mittens and scarves can all be knitted or crocheted with any type of image or message.
Gift baskets are another way to create a personal gift that can be customized to the recipient's liking, with their favorite foods and stocking stuffer type trinkets for them to enjoy. Perhaps some wine, cheese, candles and crackers to a husband and wife for a romantic evening together; or, for an older couple, some popcorn, plus a joke book full of the funny things that seem always to be happening in the lives of the elderly. Don't forget the butter flavored oil.
Need more ideas for creative Christmas presents? Commemorative Christmas ornaments are always appreciated - whatever the occasion, be it a couple's first Christmas together (or second or third or fourth) or a baby's first Christmas. Many families create ornaments to commemorate those who are no longer with us. Ornaments like these are cherished for a lifetime and are a pleasant yearly reminder of holiday seasons gone by.
Food can be a creative Christmas present and it is rarely turned down; cakes, tarts, pies, cookies and candies are just a few of the many items that can be made. You could even include fruits and veggies that you canned during the year. A nice idea is to buy small, plain white gift boxes and package the goodies yourself. Decorate the outside of the box in any manner you choose, maybe include a handmade recipe book that includes all of your favorite holiday recipes.
Here is another creative Christmas present idea - you could purchase an inexpensive calendar for the following year and cover up the standard pictures with pictures from your own or the recipient's life; you can even get calendar blanks that have no images at all.
This cool gift is enjoyed throughout the year by all who receive it as they relive memories from their past with each passing month. Fill in the days with important dates that are relevant to the recipient, such as births, deaths, anniversaries and any information related to their family tree.
Whatever you decide to make for any or all that are on your Christmas list, be assured that your creativity will certainly provide them a unique and memorable gift. The various ideas for creative Christmas presents discussed here should help get your imagination flowing.
