The 5 Best and Easy DIY Gifts for Christmas

Christmas is the season for sharing, and everybody loves to give and receive any kind of gifts.
But it’s well known that the best presents are the ones made with our own hands, the ones we put our hearts into when making them, so if you’re looking for ideas on handmade gifts, this is the right place.
We’ve compiled some of the best handmade and easy gifts for you to create solo, with your kids, grandkids, or anyone who wants to join!
Your family & friends will love these.

Wood Burned Kitchen Kit

This is one of the easiest to make. All you need is to gather around the tools your kitchen-lover might need or want and give it that personalized touch by creating wood-burnt designs with a Proburner. Easy peasy!
As a pro tip, you can wrap them with a little bow, and they’ll look beautiful and ready to be under the tree.


Modern Baby Rattle

Every family has a little one who’ll be thrilled with this Rattle. All you need are 2″ wooden dowel, dowel caps with 1/2″ holes, and 1.5″ wood rings. Once you have them cut into the size you prefer, I recommend 4.5”.

Then, sand, paint with some nice colors and non-toxic paint, and it’s ready! time for your little one to enjoy the present.

Copper Jewelry Stand 

To the jewelry lover of the family, this is the perfect gift. It’s useful and a beautiful way to decorate the room.

Using a marble tile, 2′ length of 1/2″ copper pipe, 3 1/2″ copper pipe caps, 2 1/2″ copper tees, threaded copper 1/2″ – 3/4″ adapter fitting, and some glue, all you need to do is fit together all the pieces how you like the most and voilá! A jewelry stand.

If you want to take it to the next level, you can drill small holes with The Customizer, to place earrings making it even more useful! 



Cutting Board Tablet Holder

Having a tablet is super useful, but it can become quite a struggle when wanting to read or see something without holding it. That’s why this is the perfect gift for the tablet user in your family.

You’ll need for this project a cutting board, a piece of 1×2 lumber, wood glue, a Mini Saw, and some paints.

Just cut a piece from the bottom part of the cutting board, place it with some glue, then add your wood lumber on the back to hold the board in place.

Add some personalization, like wood burnt design or colors, and done!


Carved Hexagonal Planters

There’s always a plant lover in the family -if there’s no one, it must be you. Pretty guilty here. So this is the perfect gift cause all you need are hex planters: 1/2″x 6″ x 6ft poplar board (1 per planter), Engraving Pen, and creativity!

First, I recommend using sanding paper to prep the planters and let them looking flat and smooth so you can start engraving and creating beautiful patterns. Once you’ve done that, just get some pretty plants and a plant holder to make them look extra nice.


Making beautiful yet useful gifts is totally possible, even as simple as these are, once you put all your love and work into it, no other present can beat that.

So, let’s make presents for the ones we love with our hands!

I make stained glass pieces and I can’t wait for this product to arrive so I can personally put my own initials on every piece I make. Can’t wait to try it out on wood as well. Looks like a lot of fun
