Blog  Banner with holiday themed foods

There has been a nostalgic resurgence of DIY gift-giving over the last few years, and I am absolutely here for it! There is something very hygge about gifting a bread basket or bringing your friend your favorite gingerbread syrup.

Even if you feel like you aren't crafty enough to DIY adorable holiday gifts, our list likely has an idea that would work for you. What are your hobbies? Are you a baker? Amature herbalist? Maybe you like the idea of putting together tea blends. Honestly, as long as you can read directions, DIY gift-giving is for you.

And there are so many benefits!

  • Sustainable and environmentally friendly

  • Meaningful and made with the recipient in mind

  • Friendly for your wallet

  • Way less overwhelming than shopping in stores

We broke this list down into 5 categories; edibles, home decor, self-care, practical, and holistic care. Use this list as a jumping board to start your DIY journey. The reality is, if you are here you are likely neurodivergent (yay algorithm). Use those creative neurodivergent superpowers to your advantage and have fun!
