Today I’ve rounded up 101 inexpensive handmade Christmas gifts for you. There have been some fabulous guest posts during our Crazy Christmas Event, so I wanted to spotlight those bloggers as well as a few others. There really is so much talent out there!

I know most of you are probably thinking about gift ideas right now… and we all know how much people love a handmade gift. At least I know I do! When my kids come home from pre-school with a handmade gift, it just melts my heart! So much better than anything else I could ask for. Most of these gifts below can be made for less than five bucks! You really can’t beat that. And check out how cute they are!

    Really excited to get started. I just found Christmas gifts for my twins teacher and their classmates. I have a question though anyone know of a craft to hold a Christmas ornament the kids are making in class they are glass bulbs so my kids are responsible for the individual packaging for them I need 29 by Wednesday. Please help any suggestions :-)

      I’m glad you could find some gifts! I don’t know how big they are, but I have used egg cartons for smaller ornaments. You could also try and use bubble wrap!

      How about using the clear plastic apple containers from your local bulk-buy warehouse center. They have a top/bottom and snap hinge closure.

    Thank you Jamielyn,
    you have saved Christmas for me. I couldn’t afford to buy gifts this year, but I found several things I could make with things I had around the house, I love you.
    I hope you have a wonderful Christmas as you have made mine.
    Thank you again.
