Homemade Christmas gift ideas

It’s that time of year – it’s time to start thinking about Christmas presents. If you are a homesteader you can make some really great gifts that come straight from your homestead and will add that extra special touch to your giveaway this year. It’s amazing to creatively share the bounty of your farm.

Seeds – Seeds saved from your own garden are a special way to pass on your love of gardening to others. You can make special seed envelopes and decorate them with rubber stamps or decorative paper to make them even cuter.

Herbal garden on the windowsill – you can create an old style herb garden on the farm by using old pallet wood to build a box that holds 3-5 used (and washed) metal soup cans. Cover the box with plastic so that water from the plants does not escape. Hammer or drill 3 holes in the bottom of each box. Add potting soil and plant the herbs with enough time for them to germinate before offering them. You can use wooden clothespins for the plant markers, and you can also add ribbons to the box or cans to dress it up.
