Christmas is known for giving back to the ones you love by giving them a great gift from the heart.

Unfortunately, Christmas might look a little different than we're used to this year both because large gatherings aren't suggested and coronavirus restrictions have put a dent in many wallets.

Luckily, you can still show your love for someone by making your own DIY Christmas gifts for your loved ones this year.

DIY gifts can mean all sorts of different things from handmade items, candles, gift baskets, ornaments, and more.

Who says a DIY gift can’t be a nice homemade loaf of bread or a beautiful cake for Christmas eve dessert?

Whatever you decide to make, it will have meaning because it’s from your heart and made with your bare hands.

If you have an artsy talent and want to put it to use then DIY might be the most creative and unique idea you could make. Maybe you could knit a hat or scarf for a loved one, paint a portrait, or if you need extra help, use a helpful website that makes custom name socks, jewelry, or blankets.

Here are 100 inexpensive and amazing DIY Christmas gifts you can share with the ones you love.

DIY Christmas gifts for mom

1. Candle Jar

Everyone loves candles — especially now that we're stuck at home all the time! Try decorating your own candle jar by cutting some vinyl and gluing it around the jar for the perfect homemade cozy gift.

The best part is you can buy candles and glass jars for cheap at a dollar store!

2. Scrapbook with photos and handwritten captions

Nothing matters more to Mom than a collection of family photos curated just for her liking. All you need is paper and you can rip the edges slightly to get a handmade look. For the cover and back cover, a piece of colored matte paper will do the trick. Glue the binding together and then you have a heartfelt homemade photo album.

3. Vintage Book Travel-Tech Organizer

If your mom might have a hard time keeping all her gadgets and devices together, this is the perfect project for you. This book-like organizer helps Mom keep all her tech necessities in the same space for easy travel and organization, which moms love.

You'll need a vintage cloth-bound hardcover book, black rubberized fabric (I used a non-slip black drawer liner material from the hardware store, but a thin neoprene foam will work as well), black elastic ribbon, a sewing machine, pins, needle, and black thread.

You'll also need illustration board or thin matboard (same dimension as your book), Elmer’s Glue and fabric glue, ruler, an X-Acto knife and cutting mat, and finally, black photo tape (available at art stores).

Check out the complete list of instructions.

4. DIY Mugs

Does your mom like drinking her morning tea or coffee but doesn't have a designated mug for that occasion? Now’s your chance to give her a customized mug that you drew yourself something just for her that she’ll now love using to drink out of every morning.

All you need is a plain-colored mug and a Sharpie. Write or draw whatever you'd like on the mug and then bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes!

5. Customizable Reed Diffuser

Mom loves some essential oils and for her house to smell amazing, you can give her that by making her own personalized reed diffuser!

No more need buying diffusers or air fresheners anymore when you can just make your own. All you need is a vase with a narrow opening, and mineral oils, like sweet almond or safflower oil, and bamboo skewers with the sharp points cut off.

Fill the vase halfway with the mineral oil, and all a few drops of any essential oils like lavender if you want to make it more fragrant. Then, cut the skewers' tips off, let them sit in the oil for about 30 min, then flip them over, and voila! A DIY reed diffuser.

6. Seed Starting Kit

Does your mom love her garden or wants to start maybe growing her own herbs? Well, then this is the perfect gift you can give to her so she can finally start working toward that.

Check out the complete list of instructions.

7. Cutlery Rings

Have any old silverware that you don’t use anymore? Want to know what you can do with them? Make Mom some nice rings if you’re up for the challenge.

8. Embroidery Hoop Ornament

Want to get into embroidery but don’t know where to start? Why not try using an embroidery hoop ornament as a start and as a homemade gift for Mom to put on the tree every year?

You won't need to be an expert, either. All you need is a hoop, some needles, thread, embroidery fabric, and some creativity.

9. Homemade Hand Soaps

Mom's love a nice soap to use in the bath or the shower, so why don't you make her a handmade one for Christmas?

For this one, you'll need petroleum jelly, glycerin, a spray bottle of rubbing alcohol, and some soap molds. You can buy these items at any craft store, and check out the complete set of instructions.

12. Monogram Mittens

Does mom have a pair of mittens she doesn’t wear much because there’s nothing really special about them? Well, you can change that by adding her initials and embroidering her glove with a beautiful monogram to spruce it up.

You'll need a canvas, a pencil, a print of their dog (side/profile angle), scissors, liquid gold leaf, acrylic paint (of your choice), and three paintbrushes.

First, you'll need to cut the dog's picture out and then place it on the canvas and trace the outline with your pencil. Then, remove the picture and use the liquid gold leaf to paint the silhouette completely. Once that's dried, use your acrylic paint to fill in the area around the silhouette — and make sure to use a tiny brush to get close to the profile!

Customize it however you'd like, and then use some setting spray to make sure it doesn't get damaged.

19. Reindeer Beers

Nothing will make your dad laugh more than a pack of "reinbeers." This will make their Christmas fun and enjoy a festive drink at 11 am.

Get some brown pipe cleaners, googly eyes, and red pom-poms for the noses. Wrap the pipe cleaners around the top of the beer (just under the cap), and then twist them upward to make "antlers."
