9 Homemade Gift Ideas: Frugal and Fast


Are you looking for some simple, easy, and frugal homemade gift ideas for Christmas this year?  Join me today at Keeper of the Home as I share 9 Homemade Gift Ideas that definitely fit into the “fast and frugal” category.

P.S. My favorite gift idea on this list is number 9 (the last one) – I just love it!  If you know someone whose love language is “quality time” you don’t want to miss this idea!


  1. Great ideas Mindy! I would love to make candles also, maybe we can get together and split the costs?

  2. Great post….I love homemade gifts more than gifts from the store. :-) I try to make at least half of our gifts homemade. It’s fun too!

    Why is it that every time I try to download the free book in the post, I get a blank google page?

    • Mindy says:

      Marie, the ebook is free to anyone who subscribes to my blog. After you subscribe (either by email or RSS) you will receive the book at the bottom of the next post that is delivered to your email or RSS feed. Let me know if you still have questions or are having trouble getting the book.

      • Maria says:

        I am subscribed, it’s from the email that I can’t access it.

        • Mindy says:

          Hmm…that’s strange Maria. I haven’t had any other reports of this so, I’m not sure what the problem is. Do you have a PDF reader installed on your computer (such as Adobe Reader)? That would be the only thing I can think of. I will go ahead and email the PDF of the book directly to you also to see if that solves the problem. Let me know!

  4. Mindy,

    I loved this post – so many great ideas packed into one post.

    The seed bombs are very clever. I’ve never heard of such a thing. But I think I’m still partial to the “gifts in jars” (i.e. the bird care package and the garden-in-a-jar). ;)

    Oh, and I really liked the Martha Stewart sewing kit jars. The pin cushion on the jar lids is ingenious.

    Thanks for all the great ideas.

  5. Love all these great ideas! Can’t wait to try them and bless others. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Love these ideas, Mindy!!

  7. This was such a great post. I LOVE your posts. I am always so happy at your blog!

have something to say?
