DIY Christmas Presents Under $10


  Are you looking for a good present for a co-worker or friend but hesitate to spend a lot of money? Let’s be honest with ourselves. When we shop for Christmas presents, the goal is to make Christmas extra special for our MIP (Most Important People). MIP’s are the ones closest to us (i.e., kids, grandkids, spouses, etc…). 

You also want to make a good showing for others, but when you have five kids at home, buying for others can be difficult. A DIY Christmas gift is simple items combined to make one great present. Below I will show you two great presents for co-workers that cost less than $10 to create, and your co-workers will not be regifting. My local Dollar Tree store is my go-to for items to make unique Christmas gifts.


Who doesn’t like getting into comfy clothes, sitting in your favorite chair, and relaxing with a good movie? Movie nights at my house isn’t complete without the perfect snacks. Giving the gift for movie lovers is something that you know they will enjoy as they sit at home relaxing after a hard day at work.

    In this gift, there are a total of eight items, including the container. The entire package, with the bow, was $9.00.


    You will have to excuse my bow tying. Somethings, no amount of practice can help.

      It looks pretty great under the Christmas tree too. The receiver of this gift will never know how little it cost to put this together. As a matter of fact, I just gave this gift to a coworker and everyone gave rave reviews. 

        2.    COFFEE LOVERS GIFT

    I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like coffee (Except for me. I hate the stuff). So I created a Coffee Lovers Gift set that is also under $10. I went to my local Dollar Tree and found packages of coffee. I chose one of each kind, found a couple of thermal mugs, and I had my gift for just $5.

    Put it together in a cute little box (also from Dollar Tree) and you have another gift ready to go.

    This one was hard to keep from my husband. He loves his coffee Bold & Strong. This one is for a coworker but I guess I will just have to make another one for him.

    I hope everyone likes my inexpensive gift ideas for Christmas Gifts. I enjoyed creating this for you. I would appreciate any comments and a follow of my page. Later one I will be doing giveaway contests for any who participate.

For 13 years I was a single mother until I married my handsome husband. Fast forward five years and we have added 3 sons and a daughter to our household. With all those kids I rarely have time to myself but my love of writing will always find a way. I have written books in the past. My range of genres is from romance novels to nonfiction historical, poetry, and children's books. I am currently working on a mystery book that should be a very exciting read I hope! I also love genealogy and have created my own forms which I will post later for people to download to use. I hope you enjoy my writings and recipes that I plan on sharing with you here.
