Updated on October 14, 2013

Best Homemade Gifts Everyone Will Enjoy

Handmade gifts are making a comeback! You can make so many different and unique things to give as a gift and I am sure there is something to be made for pretty much everyone. People appreciate homemade things more and more as they know it takes a lot of effort and thought to make that one perfect gift, not to mention they are getting something that is unique, one of a kind, attributes that were and always will be respected.

It can be hard to think of a gift that's best for one particular person so my hope is this page will make it easier for you as it features some of the best homemade gifts for pretty much everybody as well as tutorials on how to make them.

Make a bar of colorful soap

There are so many different ways you can make a homemade soap so I decided to include a few tutorials - pick the one that sounds best to you.

A word of caution though, once the person who will receive your handmade soap uses it there will be no turning back, he or she will beg you to make more soaps as they are really addictive.

Do you prefer receiving handmade or store bought gifts?

I am sure you have a bunch of empty glass jars somewhere in your household just waiting to be recycled. Why not use them to make fancy gifts?

Ideas are limitless but if you are wondering about the one in the picture it is bake ready (well almost) cookie mix!

You can make it following the instructions found on Bakerella (labels are also included!)

      Those pouches are really something aren't they! I'm thinking about making one with dinosaur patterns for my nephew.
