With Christmas literally just around the corner, time is running out for picking up gifts, especially when there are so many other lovely festive things to be doing! In today’s video I’m sharing some ideas of how to make your own gifts, just in case you’ve forgotten a few or have run out of time! I think homemade presents are extra special as they can be so personal and really show someone that you’re thinking of them at this time of year. The video shows a step-by-step guide to making each of these gifts, so I hope you enjoy it!

  • These are the cutest things ever! I really want the terrariums but they’re so expensive. I shall be trying (emphasis on try) these in the new year to try and give myself at least a little bit of responsibility. The cookie jars are such a great and inexpensive idea! I’ll be making them for gifts in the future.

  • Alicia Parry

    These are great ideas!!

  • Alicia Parry

    People are unique or sometimes they do things other people’s way. Sometimes they have great ideas or sometimes they copy. But you, Zoe, you are unique, you do things your own way. You’re one of my favourite you tubers because of your unique videos and because of you especially, you’re not afraid to hide the weird and wonderful inside of you. I just wish, I had a chance. I’d really appreciate it if you would look at my blog, if other people would look at my blog, then that would mean the world to me. The world. Just leaving a comment and following my blog to get email notifications would make me so happy. If anybody does look at my blog, I promise to have a look at theirs because I know I’m not the only one who has a dream out there. But the truth is, I love to blog, I want to make it part of my career when I get older. Sounds stupid, doesn’t it? But nobody can change my dream. Nobody. Here is my blog address:

  • Louisa Nöhr

    I’m loving all these ideas! The frames are beautiful! Where did you get them?

  • Gemma

    Such beautiful present ideas – I love the photo frames – would anyone be able to tell me where you can get them from?
