Christmas is almost here, which means you need to find a unique gift for your mom and dad. But if you’re on a tight budget, it can be difficult to come up with something meaningful without breaking the bank.
Homemade gifts can be a great way to show your love and appreciation for the people in your life, and there are plenty of creative DIY ideas out there that you can make for everyone on your list. If you want to give a special present to your parents, but don’t have the cash or time to go shopping, consider making one of these homemade Christmas gifts instead.
These handmade gifts can be incredibly thoughtful, and they’re easy to make too! Some of them require just a little bit of crafting skill, while others are super simple to make with kids.
Some of these DIY projects are a lot of fun for the whole family to do together, while others will make a lasting impression on your parents as gifts they’ll cherish for years to come. From yarn-wrapped letters to a handwriting bracelet, these projects are sure to please the crafty, creative, and DIY-inclined members of your family.
If you’re looking for a heartfelt gift to say “I love you,” this is the project for you! You’ll need cardboard, a glue gun, twine, two colors of yarn, scissors, hemp, and jute ribbon.
You’ll also need a pencil and a ruler to help you measure, cut, and wrap the letters. The finished project makes a nice addition to the tree or a great place to display your mom’s favorite photo.

If your mom is always cold and needs to keep her hands warm, she’ll appreciate this knit mitten set from Make and Do Crew. You’ll need to gather an old sweater, a t-shirt, and some wool yarn for this easy DIY project that can be completed with a sewing machine or by hand.
Stress Escape Neck Pillow
If she’s ever had to deal with a lot of stress, this could be the perfect gift for your mom. This neck pillow is made from recycled materials and has a cool geometric design that would be a great gift for her this spring.
A KODAK Printomatic Digital Instant Print Camera
If you have a photographer or a mom who loves to scrapbook, this is the perfect gift. This digital camera prints 2×3-inch-film sticky-backed pictures, which she can use to create a collage or scrapbook album and preserve memories for family and friends.
Alternatively, this camera is a great option for moms who prefer physical pictures to digital ones, since it’s easy to store the photos in an album and add them to the camera.
The best part about this gift is that you can even choose to print a picture that has a funny message. You can include your mom’s favorite food or drink, a picture of your kids, or a funny quote.
