Handmade, Not Homemade, Christmas Gift Guide

I'm always looking for something a little bit different for Christmas Gifts and although there are some wonderful gifts in the High Street Stores something handmade always feels a little bit special.

Why Handmade, Not Homemade, Christmas Gift Guide? This is not a how to make but a where to find guide. Those personal and unique items that you possibly could make with years of practice and you just can't find on the High Street.

Here are a few that have caught my eye and made it onto my Handmade, Not Homemade, Christmas Gift Guide.

1. Handmade Soap - The Soap Mine

I first came across The Soap Mine's instagram feed. It was amazing! Why don't we have smelly vision? The handmade soaps would be a great gift that was just a little bit special and can be purchased through their facebook page The Soap Mine. Just have a look at their gallery of available now and send a message. They are all £4.50 each plus postage

Available as individual soaps
or as gift sets 

2. Handmade Glass - Glasspirations

I love handmade glass and when I found Glasspirations I just had to have my Bear from my logo made in glass as a Christmas decoration. I sent a photo and we discussed the detail and back came Bear. Why not have something special made? If you want a bespoke piece don't leave it too late. They sell everything from Oil Burners, Bowls, Cake Stands, Clocks and so much more.

3. Handmade Silver Memories - Bella and Bow

What could be more unique than a personalised fingerprint, handprint or footprint? Maybe a charm for a bracelet, a key ring or a necklace. These are gorgeous and all handmade. 

I just love this keyring 

What a gorgeous necklace 

4. Hair Accessories - Gift Wrapped With A Bow

Do you know someone special who love sparkles and pretty things for their hair? These are all handmade and are totally wonderful. They can even make items to match outfits or school uniforms.


5. Greeting Cards - Rosey Posey Handmade Greeting Cards

If you are looking for an unique card for someone special then you must have a look at Rosey Posey Handmade Cards on facebook. They make bespoke cards for all occasions and they are gorgeous.

These are just a few beautiful handmade items that anyone would love to receive. Don't leave it too late to order as Christmas is their busiest time!
