10 Gorgeous Holiday Gifts Kids Can Make Themselves

bead bunny bookmarksMy daughter has been telling me for weeks now that she's making my Christmas gift. So far she hasn't slipped and told me WHAT it is, but I'm looking forward to a handmade holiday gift under the tree. Anything that my kid makes I will treasure.

But let's face it: not all handmade kid gifts are created equal. Some are more ... let's say useful ... than others. And cuter. Much cuter.

If you have a crafty kiddo at home, why not let them loose with ideas to make something Grandma and Aunt Susie will actually use? We've rounded up some of the cutest -- and easiest -- handmade holiday gift ideas tailor-made for little hands!

We've got everyone from the teacher to your favorite baker, a diehard reader to the lady who loves her nails covered, so dive in.

Number 8 is my favorite, could your kids handle it? What is your favorite gift they've ever made?

Thanks for posting this.  My son wants to make homemade Christmas presents for the Grandma's and I feel like all my creative energy has went into elf mischief this year.  I think the G ma's and the great would love the oven mitts.

My kid isn't crafty, he takes after me!

I have to say, #8 is my fave, too! I wonder if I have time to get the supplies together to have DS make that for his teacher this year!

I like the driftwood xmas tree, too!!
