Oh Gosh is a lifestyle blog written by Emma. I share stories about my life with incurable cancer, travels, DIY projects, interior upgrades and inspiration, and plans for future projects alongside snippets of my life and my loves (mostly my dog).
If you’re planning a handmade christmas then you still have some time to get your craft on and I thought it might be nice to round up some of the gifts that I have made for people that are easy to replicate and you can start on today.
Gittery Gem Soaps
These went down an absolute treat – they are glittery, pretty colours and in the shape of precious gems – what more could your recipients want? Find the DIY here!
Mountain Cushion DIY
I made this mountain cushion for a friends housewarming as she is a snow bunny but it would be great for the mountain lover in your life. And it was super simple to make. The DIY details are here.
Hot Chocolate Stirers
I make these as small extra gifts for people as they are so easy to do and everyone loves hot chocolate. There are two versions of them in my DIY’s – one is PG rated and has a white chocolate recipe and one contains boozey pipettes.
Dog Treat Jars
Here’s a simple and super easy to make gift for any dog lovers in your life. You can probably find all the ingredients in your cupboards so you just really need a jar! Find the instructions to make them here.
If you get started now then your lemoncello will be ready to give come Christmas so if this one takes your fancy get to the shops today and buy some vodka and lemons. After spending our Christmassy in the Italian mountains and having lemoncello warmers for me it’s the perfect winter drink, especially if it snowing!
This was one of my very first Christmas DIY gifts. My old housemate and I made these Amaretto truffles one night and we really were not expecting to get as covered in chocolate as we did. But take heed, they are super rich so don’t eat too much of the mixture!
Wedding Christmas Tree Baubles
If you have friends who have been married recently then these are the perfect idea as a gift for their first Christmas as a married couple. Festive wedding baubles are the so sentimental but pretty!
Not the greatest picture – I’m sorry – but everyone who goes near the kitchen needs vanilla essence. Its so easy to do and once you’ve started you’ll wonder why you pay so much for it. I make it in a big bottle for myself in the house, but you can get the instructions here.
Christmas Cookie Pots
A great gift to have in the house for surprise visitors or people you know love baking. You could have them for any occasion but by adding the labels and festive cookie cutter gives it a holiday touch. The instructions are here.
