A 31 day handmade gifts series with ideas for Christmas gifts, birthday gifts, and more! Find links to all the projects below.
It’s October 1 and I’m adding to our regular schedule of easy DIYs, simple whole food recipes, do-able gardening tips, and Saturday’s Three Things to bring you a new 31 day series all about handmade gifts. Every day (yes, every day) during the month of October you will find one (and sometimes more) homemade gift tutorial with ideas to customize and personalize them.
They range from foods, personal items, kids gifts, ideas for men & women, and ‘family’ gifts (one item you can give to a whole family). Some use simple sewing or knitting/crocheting skills, others paint, or simply putting things together in a basket/jar – but all show the time and care you took to create a meaningful gift. So much better than just pulling something off the store shelf, right?
Long-time readers will not be surprised to hear that I love handmade gifts – both giving and receiving them – and have brought you many easy crafts, foods, and DIYs that make welcomed gifts. These are still great resources if you’re planning your holiday gifts and you’ll find them here:
- Handmade Gift Ideas for Men & Women
- Handmade Gift Ideas for Kids and Teens
- 23 Creative Handmade Gifts
- Complete Crafts & Handmade Gifts Gallery
Oh, and we even made a video where I share some of my favorite handmade gift ideas in just 6 minutes (bonus: there’s a lot more new ideas here, too):
For this 31 day series, I’m bringing you DIY ideas from both AOC and around the web that will make great gifts, so I know you’ll find something that will provide thoughtful gifts to your loved ones.
You will find all the links for the 31 days below. You can pin this image to your Pinterest boards so you can reference it and come back anytime:
And I’m always sharing easy DIY’s for gifts and more, so I’d highly recommend that you sign up to receive AOC’s emails to make sure you don’t miss anything – you can choose a weekly delivery if you’d prefer not to get a daily email.
