12 Days of Christmas, Day 10: Small Christmas Gift Ideas

Welcome to Day 10 of the 12 Days of Christmas Series. I am here today to share some small gift ideas.

What do you get that teacher, neighbor, co-worker, or acquaintance that you want to give a gift to,but don't want to spend  a lot money on? 

We've all been there! And some how we always come back to homemade gifts. These gifts are sure to help you stay on budget, but put a smile on their face.

It's always the thought that counts they say, but you can really put a smile on their face, with some of these unique homemade gifts.

1) A drinking glass that we got from the good ole' dollar store. Yep, and its only $1. 

To personalize it we, cut the teacher's name out with my cricut machine. But you could also just buy the stickers too.

2) Homemade Hot Salsa

I have already blogged about this already for 10 Teacher Appreciation Gifts, but this is a great gift to give even to a relative. Friends, co-workers, neighbors you name it, anyone would love to get this. Pinterest has a lot of yummy recipes. I'd share mine, but then I'd have to kill ya, lol.
 Put the salsa in a jar, and slab on a homemade label. 

3) Coasters

There are so many you kinds you can make. You can paint them, or put photos on them, quotes, etc. Go here, to see how I made these coasters.

You can fill Mason Jars with just about anything from candy to nuts, to cookies, hot chocolate. Decorate them cute and holiday pretty, and its a super quick an inexpensive gift!

Remember these, I posted in November? If you know how to crochet, these are super easy to make, and you can personalize it by the color and style of the yarn!

I recently did a guest blogging post on these! I love them, and I know those coffee lovers will love them too. You can personalize them with a heart, owl, letter, so many ideas!

You might want to buy some wine to put in it too. Don't drink it first either, lol.

Well I think you can get a lot of more ideas here.

Ideas from baked goods, to little plants,and other homemade ideas.

Make it from the heart, and put some old fashioned LOVE into your homemade gifts and they are sure to love them!

Only 5 more days till Christmas, so yes of course, I'll finish up those last 2 days very soon, lol.
