Easy DIY Christmas gifts for everyone on your list

By: Kate Wells

Skip mass-produced goods and opt for meaningful, homemade Christmas gifts. We've got eight simple ideas for everyone on your list.

1. Brandied spiced figs
These boozy figs need to stand for two weeks before they're ready for gifting, but they only take 15 minutes to prepare. This is the perfect gift for those on your list who love to entertain–the sweet figs pair perfectly with a cheese platter and the liquid tastes great in a strong cup of coffee.



2. Erie knit hat
This stylish unisex hat works for anyone on your list. The classic toque is quick and easy to knit (ideal for beginners and knitters of all levels) and is machine washable, so the wearer can enjoy it for years to come.



3. Festive terrariums
Add a tropical touch to the holiday season with a gorgeous air-plant ornament or a hanging terrarium with succulents. The delicate vessels will bring joy all year long.



4. DIY leather key chain
You'll only need 6 materials (and a few minutes) to create this fashionable leather keychain.



5. Knit dinosaur
Only The Grinch couldn't love a smiling T. Rex stuffed animal! This knit toy is tough enough for the washing machine, and soft enough for cuddling.



6. Hot chocolate mix
The presentation alone is cute enough–forget the fact that the jar is filled with hot chocolate goodness! This wintertime gift also makes a wonderful hostess gift before or after the holidays.



7. Mason jar soap dispensers
Forget the pricey soap-and-lotion sets you can buy at the kitchenwares store: a pair of revamped canning jars are a stylish addition to any kitchen countertop.



8. Personalized dog ornament
The humans on your Christmas list aren't the only ones who can enjoy your holiday crafts: your dog can, too! This fool-proof craft can easily be adapted for cats or other family pets.



Finding the right gift doesn't mean spending a fortune! Check out these six budget-friendly Christmas gift ideas.
