DIY Embroidered Picture Frame

Celebrate your favorite shared moments together with a personalized piece of home decor. This DIY project is especially fun to create and only takes a few minutes, so you can make plenty for everyone on your list.

Homemade Kombucha

With flavors such as cranberry cinnamon and pomegranate orange, these homemade kombucha recipes make for one of the most flavorful holiday drinks packed with healthy vitamins and probiotics. Kombucha is relatively simple to make - it involves fermenting sugary black or green tea with the help of a SCOBY (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast). Get the step-by-step tutorial for both festive flavors here. When you’re done, package and label your kombucha in these neat flip-top bottles.

Whether it's a homemade tasty treat from the kitchen or a DIY self-care essential for the perfect spa day, there is nothing that compares to the uniqueness of a homemade gift this holiday season. While online shopping is certainly convenient, your loved ones will surely appreciate the thoughtfulness of these personalized gifts.
