I received products in exchange for my review, however all opinions about these handmade Christmas gifts are my own. handmade-christmas-gifts

Handmade Christmas gifts make for great sentimental gifts this season. In fact, some of my favorite gifts to give or receive are usually handmade.

Handmade Christmas gifts are crafted with love and take a lot of time to make. To me, that’s what makes them special.

Crafts by Samantha on Etsy offers a wide variety of handmade gifts that would be perfect this holiday season. Whether you’re celebrating Christmas this year or just New Years like me, you can find the cutest handmade gifts on Samantha’s Etsy shop!

5 Handmade Christmas Gifts

1. Coffee Cozies


These coffee cozies are my personal favorites. They are adorable and so convenient! If you’re a fan of coffee or take your travel mugs to-go often, then these are for you. You can gift them to coffee lovers to protect their hands from the heat of their beverage. They come in a variety of colors and you can choose your own theme. The quality of these cozies are great and you can tell that she took a lot of time in making each one.

2. Ornaments

Crafts by Samantha offers a variety of adorable ornaments including this cupcake ornament that my sister would love since she’s a baker. If you have a little princess in your life, then check out the princess ornaments too! So cute.

3. Personalized Mugs

Going back to the coffee lover, mugs are a must this holiday season. Samantha sent me this awesome travel mug which are great for busy moms. What I love about it is that it is says “Mommy Fuel” and we all know I need a good cup of coffee to start my day! The travel mugs are prefect for when you’re on-the-go and still crave that warm and caffeine that coffee provides. Granted you can even put your tea in here, too. She also offers a variety of mugs I think would be great this season, including this one that says “you’re my person” how cute is that?


4. Wooden Signs

I love the way Samantha crafts these, they are simple and elegant. You can gift these to anyone! I would gift these to teachers and friends because I know they would place them on their mantel or desk. I received this beautiful “Kindess” wooden sign that I instantly fell in love with. I’m definitely going to order one of the verses because those are my personal favorites.

5. Wooden Letters

If you have a little one who loves this kind of personalization, then I suggest grabbing one of these for them this year! I love the detail of the signs and I know that my son would love one for his name, too. There are different themes and colors to choose from, so you can really style it to fit your child’s personality. I love these!

Crafts by Samantha offers a variety of handmade Christmas gifts but also handmade gifts that are prefect year-round. I can’t wait to order some of the teacher signs and crayon jars for my son’s teacher this year. I think they would also make for a great gift this holiday season!
