5 Handmade Gifts for CoworkersFive handmade gifts for coworkers, teachers, mail carriers, and other special people in your life.

It can be really easy to break the bank around the holidays. Once you have your initial list completed, you think about all of the people in your life that you would love to give a little something to, like co-workers, teachers, and mail carriers. This can wreak havoc on your holiday budget. Making gifts is an easy way to keep your holiday spending under control while spreading even more Christmas joy. Here are five handmade gift ideas for coworkers.

5 Handmade Gifts for Co-Workers

1. Truffles

Chocolate is a nearly universal crowd pleaser. This raw truffle recipe from Eat Drink Better is an extra special way to give someone chocolates this season. Try rolling them in different toppings and experimenting with flavors.

2. Magnets and Push Pins

Give your co-workers something nice to spruce up their cubicle with. These marble magnets from Not Martha are a great way to do just that. You can easily personalize them by using images and colors that your recipient loves. For a more rustic look, make some of these twig push pin fromDesign*Sponge. Making these into magnets would be a cinch too.

3. Food In A Jar

Midwest Living gives us a how-to on creating a soup in a jar. If you know someone is vegetarian, use veggie bouillon granules instead. Mail carriers and teachers alike would appreciate a gift that is delicious and useful. Alternatively, Not Martha gives us a recipe for pie in a jar for your friends with a sweet tooth.

5. Fabric Flowers

These fabric flowers by Michonne via 100 Layer Cake would make a beautiful addition to a co-worker’s or teacher’s desk. They are zero maintenance and will look great all year round. Plus, they’re an excellent way to use any leftover fabric you have from your wrapping.

Do you  have any go-to gifts that you like to give to the other special people in your life? I would love some more ideas and recipes to try out. Feel free to leave some comments and links.
