Easy DIY Christmas Gifts From The Kids

I’m all about ease so here are three easy gift ideas that the kids can make (age dependant of course) that are also very affordable. They make for great teacher presents, but they could also be given to a friend, grandparent or anyone else in the family.

My daughter (8) made all three of these for her teachers without any problems so they are very doable gifts for the kids to make.  Although if you’re going for a really good Pinterest DIY vibe you might wanna make them yourself.  They could also make a cool secret Santa present.

DIY One: Santa Chocolate Sleigh

This is a super easy and a very affordable DIY. All you need is various different chocolate treats, a chocolate Santa, two candy canes and some cellophane and wrapping paper (optional bow and ribbon).

All the kids need to do is wrap the chocolate treats then cellophane everything together. The largest chocolate on the bottom of the sleigh with a candy cane either side and a Santa at the front. I got everything I needed at Poundland. Such an easy budget-friendly DIY.

DIY Two: Tea Bag Christmas Tree

All you need is either a kitchen roll tube (we didn’t have one so used a plastic beaker and plastic cup we had in and didn’t need), then lots of teabags and a bow for the top. We also put chocolates in the cup. All you do is layer the teabags around the cup/tube with cellophane and put a bow on the top. Again this is a really affordable DIY and you may even have everything at home already that you need.

Tip: using green tea bags will probably look better and more tree-like.

 


DIY Three: Lucky Dip/Pamper/Treat Pot

DIY PAMPER POT

I wasn’t sure what to call this one if I’m honest as it depends on what you put inside. We went for tinsel as my daughter liked the idea that the teacher had to search to find the ‘treats’ like a lucky dip. Treat wise we did chocolates and some beauty miniatures (mini hand cream, moisturizer sample etc etc).

I’ve seen people do spa pamper pots placing cotton wool at the bottom of the jar alongside a nail file and polish. The cotton wool looks nice at Christmas time as gives a snowy feel and you can add candles and beauty cosmetics and anything spa-like.

Or you could just fill with chocolates, tea bags or whatever takes your fancy. All you need is a jar, whatever you want to fill it with and then my daughter wrote a little tag and I helped her tight a bow with a candy cane. Super easy and takes less than 5 minutes to do, plus you can customise to the person.
