Homemade Christmas Gift Ideas

Courtesy of Klutz.

Christmas is always a stressful time of year. You want to get your friends and family really cool gifts, but you're usually a little strapped for cash. Well, instead of taking on a ton of extra babysitting jobs, why not make your presents this year? These gifts are easy to make, but they'll wow anyone who you give 'em to. Check it out!


Homemade Christmas Gifts: Clothing and Accessories

Clothing and accessories at the mall can be way over-priced, especially at this time of year. So, instead of heading to the Gap, try picking up a pair of knitting needles. Even if you've never knit anything before, you'll be able to pick it up really fast - just grab a copy of the Klutz Knitting book. It comes with knitting needles, a crochet hook, yarn and six really cool patterns. You can make your peeps scarves, hats or even a purse!


Homemade Christmas Gifts: Beauty Products

Need some ideas on what to get your mom this year? Why not throw together some homemade beauty products? Bath salts, face masks or even all-natural shampoos are all things that look impressive. You could even put together a little gift pack for your teacher or sister.



Homemade Christmas Gifts: Baking

For this homemade gift, you may need a little help from a parent. Dig out your favorite holiday recipe and whip up a batch of cookies or other treats to give to all your friends. This is a quick and affordable way to be able to give something to your whole class or sports team.


Homemade Christmas Gifts: Mixed CDs

There's nothing better than receiving a CD full of all your fave tunes. All you need is a few blank CDs (which you can find anywhere, from your fave music store to the dollar store) and your favorite tunes. For your best buds, make a CD that will remind them of a certain party or dance you all went to, or maybe a soundtrack of songs from this past year. For family, throw together a Christmas music compilation that you can listen to on Christmas morning!

As the previous person said, look online. There are very cute clothes available in bigger sizes! Also when you go shopping take a look in popular stores as well as less popular that might look as if they're for older people. Often they follow very similar trends but have bigger sizes!

I think you should go. It might be difficult but you never know. You might find something to talk about with his fiance and find a way to talk to her! Or you could be more social with other family. The only way to beat being unsocial in big groups is to put yourself into the situation and learn. You could actually have a great time :) Just relax, be yourself. Ask questions. People love to talk about themselves so ask lots. It'll keep conversation going and you'll learn about possible later conversation topics. Also smile and be friendly. Make small talk. Remember you're there to celebrate a happy time in someone's life. You might not like it but it's their big day, one of the biggest in their life. And your dad and sister are going so you could always stick around them if socializing doesn't work.

You can probably search for cute plus size clothes on the internet to find places that sell clothes that fit. As for style just wear what you feel comfy in.
