Raise your hand if you like to make homemade holiday gifts? If so today’s post is for you. I’m teaming up with Aladdin (again!) to share some inspiration. I’ve been pinning DIY ideas to their Winter Wonderland Pinterest Board and wanted to highlight a few of my favorites here today. (Click each image to get more info on each idea.) I love the idea of using these ideas with Aladdin’s Classic Insulated Travel Mason Mugs for pretty and useful packaging.


One of the most popular ideas I’ve seen is a hot chocolate kit. Consider making your own marshmallows this year and pair with gift cards for your children’s teachers.




Candied nuts are easy to make and always well received (noting of allergies of course). Would be a great recipe to make in bulk and gift to extended family and neighbors.




For young families on your list I love this idea of gifting homemade cookie dough.




Help your kids make these adorable snow globes for Grandma and Grandpa. This would be such a fun project!




And it’ll be easy to include your fur loving friends this year with these cute dog treat packages.




Aladdin has a great collection of keep it hot mugs and thermoses. Here are a few of my favorites.






Browse Aladdin here and follow our Winter Wonderland Pinterest Board here. Also, Aladdin is offering 30% off products with the code “MERRYMUGS” now through the end of December!


Thank you to Aladdin for partnering on this post.
