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!

I don't know you and I'm not exactly sure how you act, but being friendly is definitely the way to go. Don't change yourself for ANYBODY. Especially someone who you don't need to impress. Speaking of impressing, don't try, do. If you are telling a story and that happens to impress them than that's great! But don't go out of your way to try to make yourself look awesome because I'm sure you already are. Be yourself. But the most important thug now you can do is not try to make a million friends. Because personally I would rather have one AWESOME friend than a million ok friends. I hope this helped. :)

Be yourself and most important of all, be kind. You will get great friends by doing so. Being popular doesn't always mean being nice; sometimes people tend to be rude and bossy to be "popular" and that isn't good. But if you participate or even start a group at school, at the library or somewhere important in the community (community service like the Rotary Club is a good way to start for kids and teens) can be a great way to meet friends and share your happiness.

You can write a note or a card to him. I'm sure he'll understand. And of course if needed see a doctor so that he'll know what to do to deal with those headaches.

You won't want to be, it's exhausting. Just be happy the way you are and don't care about what others think or say about you.
