Christmas is almost here but there's still time to buy gifts for yourself or someone else as most delivery deadlines for standard delivery end today or tomorrow with express delivery dates a couple of days later; check out my latest gift guides for ideas! However, handmade gifts or decorations can be equally as special, even more so, particularly if the gift is for a grandparent.

Making Decorations With Grandparents
Handmade gifts or decorations for your grandparents can be such a lovely idea. I've personally made so many gifts for my grandad and for my aunties too in the form of photo books and personalised gifts - I love the look on their faces when personalised and handmade gifts are opened. I've also made a couple of baby blankets for friends and they've gone down better than I could have imagined!

Making gifts or decorations with grandparents can also be a lovely idea as it not only means that your grandparents will receive a decoration to keep but also a nice activity to do together. I love making things with my aunties, most recently my heart cushion from We Are Knitters. Growing up, I don't think I really made anything with my grandad which is such a shame and a missed opportunity but I have made gifts, cards and decorations for him which he still has twenty years later. I only have one grandparent who is still with us as neither of my grandmas were alive when I was born sadly so it just emphasises the importance of spending time with grandparents while you can.

DIY Christmas Decoration Ideas
There are so many DIY decoration ideas or ideas to make handmade gifts, particularly on Pinterest which is where I get most of my handmade gift ideas. I've decorated my gift boxes this year with inspiration from Pinterest and they've tuned out so well, if I do say so myself.

One of the nicest DIY decoration ideas I've come across are these pinecone decorations, pictured above, which would be so easy to make with foraged pinecones, glue, ribbons and any other little christmas decorations you have already. I love natural christmas decorations with either wood, cotton, canvas or even pinecones so these are something I'd love to make.

An idea that would be great for children and is something that I did in school includes christmas cards for grandparents. I loved craft projects in school, although if I'm honest I was probably not very good at it! Additionally, baking gingerbread cookies that can be decorated and added to the christmas tree could be a great activity to do with grandparents this christmas.

What do you think of these decoration ideas? Have you made any Christmas decorations or handmade gifts this year?
