Make Your Own Christmas Gifts

Xmas can be expensive especially buying gifts. One way to reduce the cost of gifts is to make them yourselves. Here are some suggestions below:

- If you have a hobby such as photography or art, you can easily create low cost gifts as you only need to pay for the base materials or supplies since the costs of your own labour is free!

- If you have kids, you can involve them to create works of art to gift to family members that will be more prized than most store-bought gifts.

- If you know how to sew or use a sewing machine, you can create clothing pieces ranging from sweaters, socks, pyjamas, scarves to boxer shorts which are useful for any family member

- If you know how to cook, you can make homemade canned preservatives like jams, pickles, sauces or cured meat which will keep fresh for months

- If you have boxes of old photos sitting around, you can sort through them and arrange the photos into a themed photo book for one of your loved ones. Alternatively, you can upload photos from your computer and create a photo book album online from many price competitive sites which will send you the perfect photo book for your family member’s coffee table or reception room.
