DIY wooden toy
If there's a little one in your life and you’re not sure what to get them this Christmas, why not make them a wooden toy? Using your range of skills and woodworking equipment, crafting a homemade toy could be the perfect gift for them this Christmas. Simply decide what kind of wooden toy you’d like to make and map out a plan. Popular choices include wooden figures, animals, blocks, or even a rocking horse if you’re up for a challenge!
A wooden sign for their home
A simple yet thoughtful woodworking gift idea is a personalised wooden sign. There is room to be really creative here as you can tailor the writing to suit who you’re making it for. For example, you could engrave their favourite quote, lyric, or phrase. If you’re stuck for ideas, you can’t go wrong with a classic “welcome home” sign.
Don’t forget to leave a hole in the top so they can hang it up!
A handmade picture frame
Another thoughtful gift idea that they’ll love this Christmas is a handmade picture frame. Memories are very sentimental, so having a lovely frame to hold them makes it even more special. There’s no better way to hold a memory than a handcrafted picture frame made especially for you by someone you love.
A wooden jewellery box
Our last unique woodworking gift idea is a wooden jewellery box. This gift idea is perfect for a special woman in your life that needs a beautiful yet secure place to store her jewellery. This practical yet thoughtful gift is sure to impress. Using your woodworking skills, you could create a wonderfully crafted and handmade jewellery box that she will love and admire for years!
