Home Made Gifts - Ideas for Making Your Own Presents

Do you need some ideas and inspiration for home made gifts?

Turn an ordinary scarf into a fantastic present by sewing pockets into the ends. This makes a great gift for someone who doesn't like to carry around a purse or wallet, and it will keep you warm in winter too.

If you are nervous that the weight will pull the scarf down, or completely off, then just add a press stud of button to secure the scarf in the right position. Trim the edges of the pockets with colorful braiding to give it a sophisticated touch.

Give the gift of homemade chocolate truffles wrapped in colorful cellophane. Here is a quick and easy recipe for you to make these home made gifts in your kitchen.

Blend 75g butter or margarine with 75g icing sugar until soft and creamy. Gently mix in 100g chocolate of your choice, 50g ground almonds and 3 tablespoons run (optional). Leave the mixture in the fridge until you can shape small balls without too much trouble. Roll the shaped balls in mixed nuts, cocoa or colorful sprinkles to make them look as delicious as they taste. Once these truffles are wrapped up, keep them in the fridge until you are ready to give them as a gift.

Use those old coffee jars and tins with lids that seal to create storage canisters for your friends and family. Use beads and wire to decorate the jars and tins all the way around, and if you are talented with paint, you could paint a picture on them. Write names of things you could store in the jars, like coffee, pasta, sugar and salt on the outside, so it makes it easy to know what is in the jar. Finish the storage canisters off by tying beautiful metallic ribbon at the top to add that special touch.

All women will love to get a home made gift of homemade scented flower petal sachets to slip into their underwear drawers, handbags and shoe cupboards. All this gift needs is a variation of flower petals which you lightly sprinkle scented oil over and leave to dry for a few hours. Nestle the petals in a small homemade bag with a draw string and you have made a beautifully scented sachet which you can give to anyone - a nice homemade present indeed.

Other home made gift ideas? Put together a car washing bucket gift with sponges, soft cloths, car shampoo and wax all in a steel or plastic bucket. If you are handy with paints, you could paint some pictures on the outside or use a permanent marker to write a special message on the outside.

Make your own car air freshener with a piece of stiff, absorbent material and spray it with car air freshener. Tie a ribbon in loop through the top so that it can be hung from the rear view mirror. This works perfectly for men and dads who spend their Sundays washing the car with the kids.

There are many techniques and materials you can use to create those perfect home made gifts - all you need is a little initiative and an eye for potential. Have fun making your own presents!
