There's nothing better than a gift that was handmade! But sometimes handmade can be a bit...scruffy. So here is a round up of some of my favourite kits that you can use to make your own Christmas gifts, but that your aunt won't turn her nose up at!
1. Home Pottery Kit for 1-2 People
£42.99 from The Clay Club
I can personally vouch for this kit as I bought it for my partner on his birthday and loved it! There's a considerable amount of clay in the kit and so many tools that I had fun playing around with. You can also add some paint to your kit so you can paint whatever you make. I made lots of little bowls and an incense stick holder which I use most days. Lots of YouTube tutorials to follow to give you ideas on what to make and enough in the kit to make multiple gifts.
2. Embroidered Cotton Garden Wall Hanging Kits
£18.00+ from Delicious Monster Tea
Another one I can vouch for because I made the kits! Each one comes with everything you'll need to make a little cottage garden inspired wall hanging, and also includes a full 20 minute video tutorial taking you through the project step by step.
3. Scrunchie Making Kit
£10.00 from Lark Design Make
And once you've made scrunchies from all the material in the kit, you'll be a whizz and can make scrunchies for everyone you know with your new skills!
4. Embroider Your Own Handkerchief Kit
£21.00 from Delicious Monster Tea
Another one that I'm biased towards!! The hankies in these kits are so super soft, and made from 100% organic cotton. Each kit comes with everything you'll need, and also includes a full 20 minute video tutorial taking you through the project step by step. Or if you're not up for the embroidery, you can buy them ready made and personalised here.
5. Soy Candle Making Kits
£12.90+ from Wickpy
There's a great selection of kits on the Wickpy website and you can even buy a kit to use on your own upcycled jars. Great way to make some unique gifts if you ask me!
6. Perspex Window Hanging Rainbow Kit
£32.00 from Fizz Goes Pop
Good luck buying one of these kits and not keeping the finished product for yourself! Just imagine all those rainbow reflections bouncing around the room when it's sunny!
7. Luxury Crochet Kits
£23.00+ from Wee Woolly Wonderfuls
These would make such a gorgeous little homemade gift for a baby or child - I can't get over how cute the little bunnies are!
8. Knitted Pom Pom Jumper Kit
£65.00 from Lauren Aston Designs
I can confirm that this kit is WONDERFUL! I bought it a couple of years ago and spent the Christmas break making it for myself. It was my first time knitting a jumper and it was relatively easy with all the instructions and would make an incredible gift.
9. Embroider Your Own T-Shirt Kit
£22.00 from Delicious Monster Tea
There are a few t-shirt kits to choose from, including a dark navy tee and some Christmas themed kits too! The t-shirts are all 100% organic cotton, super soft and available in sizes XS - 5XL. Each kit comes with everything you'll need, and also includes a full 20 minute video tutorial taking you through the project step by step.
10. Tinsel Pom Pom Wreath Kit
£49.99+ from Fat Pom Poms
Another one that I challenge you to make and not keep for yourself! I want one of these hanging on my wall all year around!
