Make It : Handmade Gifts

Posted by

In keeping with our "Christmas in July" theme, we're bringing you a round-up of small, handmade gifts that are sure to get you in the spirit. For those that celebrate Christmas in July in places like Australia and New Zealand, it's customary to have an intimate Christmas meal or party and exchange small gifts in the winter (our summer!). Below are our picks for what should go under your tree (handmade of course!).  And speaking of trees, stay tuned for our Christmas in July tree later this week!

Athena's snowdrop towels make the perfect gift for the host or hostess of your Christmas in July fete.

I love these sweet beaded hair accessories.

Make several of these pretty teacup candles and give them to multiple people.

Silke's tassel bookmarks are easy to make and look super elegant.

Simple kitchen ingredients and a few craft supplies are all you need to make these homemade spa-inspired presents (above and below).

  • This year we joined in the Christmas In July Festivities. We had so much fun preparing that we'll do it again next year.

    We marked everything down 15%, but next year we may do free shipping.

    Thanks Martha for supporting handmade artist.

  • Thanks Laura!!!
