23 Creative Homemade Gifts That People Will Actually Like

It’s getting that time of the year where it’s getting a bit colder outside and people are starting to realize that the holidays are right around the corner.  If you walk into any store the employees are hustling and the Christmas aisles are stocked full of holiday cheer.

I completely understand if you are beginning to stress a little bit.  I also get it if in the back of your mind you are wondering how you can enjoy the holiday season when your budget is so tight.  

If the thought of purchasing gifts while you are living paycheck to paycheck is overwhelming or even a little bit depressing don’t you worry.  I have some creative homemade gift ideas for you.

No one wants to start the New year off in debt. That’s why I  came up with a great list of DIY items that your loved ones will appreciate and actually really enjoy.

Did DIY give you a bit of scare because you aren’t the crafty type? These are easy I got you! I found ideas for most ability and skill levels.

Honestly, these are ideas that are cheap and don’t require you to have any prior Suzie homemakin background.  The best part is some of these gifts can be made with things you already have around the house— Cha-ching! We just made Christmas a bit easier and gift giving less expensive.

Please keep in mind its the thought that counts during the holiday season, definitely not the price of a gift.   

All of these items are great because they allow you to add your little “touch” to make them more personable adding a bit more meaning to the holiday season.

Here are some of my favorite cheap and easy DIY Christmas gifts for everyone on your gift giving list

    Hi, for two years I had $95,000 in debt, including $36,420 in credit card debt. My credit score was nothing to write home about. I managed to get most of my debt removed in bankruptcy and i was left with $7,000 car loan and $51,000 in student loans. Determined not to repeat my mistakes again I was recommended by a credit consultant to contact 760PLUS CREDIT SCORE who would help fix my credit score and clear my loans she referred me to her hacker friend she has met years ago who specializes in fixing credit score. I contacted him through [email protected] the following day, it took him some time to get back to me, because he was fully book, after a while he responded and helped me out. He started from raising my credit score to 799 after which he cleared my outstanding pending bills. I bounced back quickly, I am currently on my feet and on my way to buying a house. All thanks to 760 Plus. You text : +1(304)-774-5902.

    Hi my name is Cuomo, after asking from my 13 trusted clients on ABC news for a credit repair recommendation because I had to offload negative items from my report to get approved for funding, loan and higher limit credit cards, 10 from them recommended 760 Plus Credit Score for me and told me to text or email 760pluscreditscore at gmail dot com or +1(304) -774 -5902. The credit repair team is good. I don’t regret making the move.
