DIY Homemade Christmas Gift Ideas - Frugal Christmas Gift Ideas for the Whole Family
With the holidays quickly approaching now is the time to start thinking ahead for the gift giving season. If you’re planning on making homemade Christmas gifts this year, getting started early means less stress later on and more time to create something really special for friends and loved ones. To help get your creative juices flowing, I wanted to share a few diy Christmas gift idea books that are currently available as instant ebook downloads! All of these ebooks are available for download to your Kindle or free Kindle App. (The kindle app is available for any device you own from your phone to your pc or macbook and doesn’t cost a cent!)

Homemade Christmas Gifts and More – Frugal Christmas Gift Ideas For The Whole Family contains a variety of handmade gift ideas including food gifts (and the recipes to make them), simple spa gifts, and gifts for the home such as diy picture frames, candles, crocheted gifts as well as Christmas ornaments, gift baskets, and homemade gift certificates.

Holiday Recipes: 150 Easy Recipes and Gifts From Your Kitchen is also free today and includes recipes for making breads, cakes, pies, candy, and cheese balls for gift giving. There are also recipes for making dishes to serve at holiday gatherings including appetizer, salads, drinks and dips! There’s even a no bake pumpkin pie recipe! You’ll also find photos of the resulting recipes along with ideas for packaging them as gifts and free printables for packaging your creations.

I also like the book, The Staycation Jar: 200 Family Fun Ideas For Creative Meals, Main Events, Silliness, Love Projects. As it’s starting to get really cold outside that means more time is being spent indoors which can result in either way too much tv, squabbling among kids, or going a wee bit stir crazy. This ebook contains some great ideas for entertaining the family inside while it’s cold outside as well as some fun and interactive creative meal ideas that get the whole family involved.

And because I know we all want to look and feel young for as long as possible, also be sure to grab Anti-Aging Herbs : Herbs To Help You Feel Better, Live Longer and Look Younger – Includes Recipes! (Healing Foods Series). It’s also free today and contains information on how herbs can lessen the effects of aging and which herbs offer what benefits along with some great recipes that incorporate these various herbs. Some of the recipes include Apple Ginger Oatmeal, Coconut Berry Smoothie, Walnut Protein Pancakes, Cinnamon Walnut Quinoa, Sugar Free Bilberry Jam, Black Cohosh Tea, Dandelion Walnut Salad, Ginseng Chicken Soup, Black Bean Meatless Burger, Chicken Tumeric Curry, Sauteed Asparagus with Ginger and Sesame Seeds, Squash Brownies and more!

Want to make your own cosmetics, bath and beauty products? These books aren’t free today, but they are very inexpensive to buy or you can borrow them for free with your Amazon Prime Membership for which there is a month free trial! Plus I think that handmade bath and body products make for great gifts and homemade stocking stuffers! Some of my favorites at just 99¢ each include:
