I will show you 5 easy DIY gifts that will spread some holiday cheer and brighten the faces of the ones around you.


Here is a simple gift that can brighten any home. All you need is a non-scented candle, a small glass plate, cinnamon sticks, hemp string (or festive colored ribbon), scissors, and a hot glue gun. First, take the cinnamon sticks and cut them to the length of the candle. Next, hot glue the sticks to the perimeter of the candle. Then, tie the hemp around the cinnamon sticks. Its as simple as that. As the candle melts, it will let off the scent of the cinnamon.


Here is a gift that anyone in any home can make use of. The only materials needed are sharpies, a coffee mug, and an oven. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. While your oven heats up, personalize your cup(s) with the message of your choice. Once you are finished decorating your mug, place it in the oven for 30 minutes. Be careful when you take the mug out of the oven. Let the mug cool off and your personalized mug is ready to be handed off.

Lastly, here is a gift that can be given to both adults and children. Its an easy gift that will have people filled with joy. Its a single package of hot chocolate that is decorated to look like a reindeer. The only materials needed for this creative treat are prepackages hot chocolate (or coffee),  triangle bags with ties, pipe cleaners (antlers), red cotton balls (nose), googly eyes, and marshmallows. First pore the hot chocolate into the triangular bag then place small marshmallows on top. tie the bag with the tie then wrap the pipe cleaner around the tie and bend the pipe cleaner to shape it like antlers. use super glue to glue on the eyes and nose. do not use hot glue because it will melt through the bag. Also Elmer’s glue will not hold the eyes and nose on the bag. These are great gifts to give to those at your holiday party.
