How To Win At Homemade Gifting This Christmas

by Tefal Team on 20 December 2022
  • Stuck for unique gift ideas? These inspiring (and totally doable!) DIY presents are a brilliant way to give something personal that shows off a new found skill without breaking the bank. With not a glue stick in sight, we’ve picked projects you’ll love to give as much as they’ll love to be received…

  • Say it with food

    Sweet ideas

    Homemade edible gifts are a long-established festive tradition so get set to unleash your inner confectioner. These delish Christmas truffles are sure to be a hit while these smoky tamarind salted caramels are a taste adventure for those with a lesser sweet tooth.

    For a unique and scrumptious foodie gift, make up a batch of this air fryer granola and pop it in a Kilner jar complete with festive ribbon.


  • Savoury and delicious

    Homemade condiments are ideal gifts to add to the festive table. Take these flavoured salts – a simple idea that brings lots of flavour. Same goes for this zingy homemade mustard and this flavoursome chilli oil.

  • Beauty-filled gifts

    Here’s a lovely way to treat several special people in your life with one recipe: make a batch of this ultra-nourishing lip balm and you’ll have 7 little pots of joy to share this Christmas.

    Not only will this coconut and lime scrub leave the recipient’s skin smooth and soft, the delicious smell will transport them back to blissful summer days. You’ll want to make a little extra to keep for yourself…

    And for the hirsute gentleman in your life, a gorgeously scented beard oil  is just the thing. Take a bottle with glass dropper, some apricot oil and an essential oil of your choosing and the rest is easy peasy!

  • Homemade for the home

    These two tableware projects are sure to impress: a simple finger knit rope trivet  that’s great for dishes straight from the oven and these brilliant homemade polaroid coasters – a novel way to showcase memorable snaps.

    With the Tefal app being the must-have kitchen helper, this easy to make and oh-so-effective chopping board tablet stand will make the perfect present for a budding chef!


  • Keepsake ornaments

    These cute botanical clay gift tags are a pretty homemade addition to any pressie and can be kept by the recipient to use as tree decorations for years to come.

    Take a plain set of Christmas baubles and turn them into a fancy and unique gift with this easy tutorial. Who new marbling with nail polish was so effortless? You’ll be eyeing up more items to marble after this, we guarantee it.

    We’re kinda going full circle here by ending on another sweet treat. These adorable doughnut decorations are made with a real doughnut mould and we’re particularly liking the idea of knocking up a batch of edible doughnuts too – to share of course.

    Happy making!
