28 Homemade Christmas Gifts for Kids to Make, 12 New Christmas Gifts + 11 Christmas Gift Wrapping Ideas

By: Jaclyn Holtzman, Editor,

“‘Tis the season of giving, and all through the land kids are giving gifts crafted by hand.” While store-bought presents are nice, homemade Christmas gifts from kids are more personal and meaningful. For kids, coming up with these ideas on their own can get frustrating, but that frown will turn upside down as they look through 28 Homemade Christmas Gifts for Kids to Make. These hand-crafted gifts from kids are nice to receive, and they’ll have a lot more fun making gifts for someone special than buying them. They’ll be very merry this Christmas when they realize that your wallet is fuller than past winters. Homemade Christmas gifts are usually much cheaper, and that should keep everyone chipper.

“For teachers, parents, grandparents, and friends, handmade gifts for everyone; the fun never ends.” While teachers enjoy seeing kids’ craft projects, when it comes to homemade Christmas gifts, they’d like something useful. Instead of a tissue paper picture, your kids can give their favorite educator a tissue paper bowl where she can store her paper clips or candy. 

“Be jolly this Christmas, and make others that too, by giving unique gifts, that are made just by you.” Your kids' BFFs will love their personalized homemade Christmas gifts. Your little ones can make their friends bottle cap pins of their favorite movie logos or fun snack bags shaped like butterflies. They’re sure to love any gift that your kids make for them, since they know just what their friends like.

“Gifts that they’ll like, gifts that they’ll love, the perfect Christmas gifts are what you’ll think of.” It is well-known that parents and grandparents like any gift that their child has made, but how awesome would it be if Grandma actually loved her homemade Christmas gift regardless of who it’s from? Your kids can make Grandma a beautiful bouquet of fabric flowers that she can keep on her nightstand all year long, or surprise Dad with a brand new iPad case.

“Give the gift of giving, and maybe you’ll see that there’ll be pretty cool presents right under YOUR tree.”
