35+ Natural & DIY Christmas Gifts Ideas

Natural and DIY Christmas Gift Ideas

This year, we’ve decided to keep things simple, natural and sustainable with homemade, natural and DIY Christmas Gift Ideas (and a few select wooden toys for the kids that will (hopefully) last for generations). We are also trying to focus more on experiences than material gifts for the most part.

There are so many great options for DIY homemade gifts, and I hope that others will consider joining me in gift giving this way…

Below are a few of my favorite homemade gift ideas and some suggestions for some simple gift baskets.
