50 homemade gift ideas to make for under $5


Today I’ll be sharing 50 homemade gift ideas you can make for under $5! Last year I shared 101 inexpensive handmade gift ideas so this year I thought I’d give you some more ideas that are not only cute and easy but inexpensive to make. There are so many crazy cute ideas below. I cannot wait to make some of them.

Handmade gifts are my absolute favorite gifts to give and receive. There’s just something about receiving a homemade gift. I love knowing that the person thought about what to make and spent the time to make it. I also believe we don’t need to spend a ton of money on a great quality gift. Hope you are inspired by this post to create more and give more as well. :)
