Special women in your life deserve special gifts this season. To me, nothing is more heartfelt than a handmade gift for the ones you love. Whip up some presents tailored for your recipient’s taste and you’ll know they will truly love their gift. Here are five handmade gifts that any special lady in your life would be happy to receive.

5 Handmade Gifts for Her

1. Scrappy Zippered Pouch

Take some pretty leftover fabric scraps and whip up this zippered pouch from Noodlehead via Lemon Squeezy Home. The versatility of this pouch makes it a great gift for someone who seems to have everything. You can stash makeup, jewelry, organize your purse, or use it as a stand alone clutch.

The How-To Gal shows us how she made a free standing accordion photo gallery. Using recycled wood and a few other materials makes this an eco-friendly alternative to plastic frames.

3. Bath Salts

Over on Smashed Peas and Carrots, there is a great tutorial showing how to make batches of bath salts and how to package them beautifully for gift giving. You can make each bath salt batch your recipient’s favorite smell and decorate with her favorite patterns and colors. Plus, once the mason jar is empty, she can use it for organizing her desk or craft area.

This would even make a great stand for organizing jewelry on a dresser or craft items on a desk. All of the materials for this project are easily found at your local thrift store or garage sale. You can find some really beautiful knobs and drawer pulls at estate sales too!
