Homemade Christmas Gifts: Getting ready for Christmas

Welcome to my guide to making homemade Christmas Gifts.

Making Your Own Presents is a wonderful way to not only show thought in your gift giving but also to save money and give people something they will use.

There are so many ways to add a little hand made to your Christmas. Start collecting pretty glass jars (think mason or kilner jars) and if you spot any hampers going begging snap them up too. If you type in handmade gifts into Pinterest you will get hundreds of results. Here are just a few of my favourite ideas for foodie gifts this Christmas.
