10 Simple and Easy Homemade Gift Ideas

Need a super simple gift to make? This homemade soap turns out to have a nice coffee scent.


1. Vanilla Coffee Soap

If you know someone who loves coffee this soap is perfect. They smell is heavenly, and that’s coming from someone who doesn’t like coffee at all. I make three bars at a time and package them up in tissue paper to give them as gifts. This recipe starts with a melt and pour base so it’s simple to make.

2. Peppermint Swirled Soap

Much like the coffee vanilla soap above, this soap starts with a melt and pour base too. Then swirl in a little scent and colorant and you have a beautiful swirled peppermint scented soap. You can change up the color and the scent to fit almost anyone’s preferences.

4. Knitted Fingerless Gloves

I hesitated to add this to the list but if you know how to knit, these fingerless gloves are not only cute but also easy to make. I can knit up a pair in an evening while watching tv. Everyone I’ve gifted them to has loved them.

6. Whipped Body Butter

This creamy body butter is easy to make. I’ve been making it for years for my kids for their dry skin. It feels great on the skin. It so thick and luxurious. Two ingredients are needed to make this body butter, three if you add scent. It would be a welcomed gift for anyone who loves a great lotion.

We use a lot of lotion around our house. Some lotions have lots of additive I don’t care to put on my skin. If you’re like me you’ll want to try this diy lotion bars recipe.

I store my lotion bars in a mason jar right on the bathroom counter so they are easy to use.

These lotion bars are a welcome gift in the winter or the summer. I make them and we use them year round, they work great. Mix up the three ingredients, place them into a mold and they are done in no time. For gift giving I would add a few to a small canning jar, add a tag, and a ribbon and the gift is done.

8. Square Knot Hemp Bracelet

I made these with my kids over the summer and they turned out so darn cute. They would make a great gift for Christmas or a birthday. We used hemp cord in a few colors and plastic beads, but you could use more expensive beads to make them even nicer.

9. Coffee Sugar Scrub

This is another coffee gift that even though I don’t like coffee I really like. It easy to make and if you use a flavored coffee you can easily vary the scents.

  1. The homemade lotion bars are so cute! I might need to make them for myself…my hands tend to get really dry in the winter with all the cold, dry air and all the hand-washing I do.

    Thanks for sharing all these great ideas!
