The best Christmas gifts really do come from the heart.

A part of the magic of Christmas is the time and effort that goes into everything.

From decorating the tree, cooking delicious meals and even spending a little more on those Choice Assorted that seem to get more expensive every year.

All these things are usually done out of love and spirit of Christmas. Your gift giving should be no different.

For some people, the best gifts are ones that money cannot buy. And if you’re broke like most of us are this year, this can be the perfect opportunity to try some DIY gift options.

We’ve compiled a list of five cute DIY gifts ideas we found. This way, you can make something truly special for your loved ones without breaking the bank.

1. Homemade mask

Well, it might not be the most glamourous gift. But everyone needs one right now, so you might as well make a cute handmade mask for the special people in your life.

2.  Homemade Marble-dipped mugs

Use nail polish to create one-of-a-kind mugs, that you could even gift with a hot chocolate kit or their favourite coffee.
