Homesteader's Ultimate Guide for Christmas: Gift Ideas This Year
Gift Ideas Any Homesteader Will Be Proud Of
A homesteader's gift is sometimes a lot better than what you can buy at any store!
Whether you’re looking for something special for your best friend, boyfriend, your favorite teacher, or even for your mom, I think you’ll find something you like in this list of gift ideas.
As a homesteader, I always try to live within my means and make pretty much everything I need.
So when I give gifts, I make sure it’s something they can both use and treasure at the same time – even if it’s something as simple as mason jars, or a bottle of memories.
These homesteader's gift ideas are easy, inexpensive, and some can even be done at the last minute. While others may take a little planning, they’re all simple enough for anyone to do.
1. Mason Jars
A true homesteader can never have too many mason jars. For canning, crafts, and a whole lot of other homesteading skills.
Fill it with some of your homestead products or give it empty, make sure to be creative with your wrapping to make even more special.
2. Can-Do Canning Kit
If you give them some mason jars, then a Can-Do Canning Kit is a great 2nd gift I’m sure they’ll love it!
It will make homesteading tasks like canning a lot easier and productive.
You never know when you need a fire around the homestead, and a homesteader is always ready! It's an excellent gift for anyone with a firepit or grill. Plus, building a fire is an essential survival skill.
4. Bread And Butter Pickles
One of the best things about being a homesteader is how creative you can get with canning. I bet you’ll become the teacher’s pet if you surprise him/her with these bread and butter pickles.
It could be a perfect lunchtime companion.
5. Best Winter Hot Chocolate
This best winter hot chocolate recipe will surely keep the winter chill at bay. It's a thoughtful gift you can do with the kids.
Be sure to have a jar for everyone you want to stay warm during winter nights.
6. Hand Warmers
If you’ve got tons of fabric scraps, like I do, then these hand warmers are the best things you can DIY for Christmas. I’ll be making a pair for a globe-trotting friend of mine to keep her warm on her travels.
7. Squirrel Proof Bird Feeders
A true homesteader loves and enjoys the happy chirping of birds. Help your fellow homesteaders attract their beautiful visitors by giving them one of these squirrel proof bird feeders.
8. Terrarium Plants
Winter isn’t the best time to see the flowering beauty of nature, so terrarium plants become the perfect way of bringing natural beauty indoors. Choose a beautiful vase that suits your recipient and a terrarium plant that will remind them of the true beauty of nature.
9. Succulent Plants
Succulent plants are an on-trend DIY project to bring color to your home, and they’re easy to keep alive. (Also why they’re one of my favorite plants.)
Place a few in a beautiful container to make a charming gift.
10. DIY Snow Globe Soap Dispenser
On a limited budget? Fret not, because this festive DIY snow globe soap dispenser is simple, inexpensive, and cute!
It’s a great gift for the whole family.
11. Paracord Bracelet
Outdoorsy or not, any guy would love to have a super cool paracord bracelet! Make this paracord bracelet for the men in your life this year.
It has a rough-and-ready look, and it can help him if he ever finds himself in a tricky situation.
12. Practical Apron
Anyone who works with their hands knows how vital an apron is. I liked this homesteader's apron. Buy it or make it, any beginner or even an experienced homesteader will appreciate your thoughtfulness and effort.
13. Sweater Sleeve Wine Bottle Gift Bags
Give your old stretched out or shrunken sweater a new lease on life by turning them into wine bottle gift bags. This DIY is a pretty cool upcycling idea.
14. Cinnamon Stick Candles
I love cinnamon! I’ll be copying this cinnamon stick candles idea as a gift and to decorate my own home, too.
15. Send A Hug
Is this even possible? Yes, it is!
I still remember how I teared up when I received this hug. It was just so thoughtful of my grandkids to think of me even if they’re so busy with all the fun activities they have while on their Christmas vacation.
Send a hug as one of your personalized Christmas gifts to all loved ones that are away from home. I’m sure they’ll appreciate all your effort.
16. Bottle Of Memories
Collect all the little trinkets of times spent with that special gift recipient, and make this bottle of memories. This gift is sure to bring on some happy tears! It’s super simple yet very personal.
17. Christmas Tea Tree
Instead of just gifting a wrapped box of tea, this Christmas tea tree will spread Christmas cheer and please the tea-lover in your life!
18. Tic-Tac-Toe Board
Draw the tic-tac-toe board on the rectangular wood slice and stain the lines on the board. After, the stain has thoroughly dried apply wood oil to seal it.
This rustic tic-tac-toe board is the perfect nudge to encourage kids to drop their gadgets and reconnect with family and friends. It’s fun for all ages, and super easy for you to make from cut wood slices.
19. DIY Garden Cart
I know this is something that you cannot wrap, but just put a special ribbon and your good to go. I have one just like this in my homestead, my husband built it for me, but he uses it sometimes.
This DIY garden cart will make the work at any homestead a lot easier.
20. Rain Barrel for Water Collection
Any proper homestead should have a water collection system. You can water your plants with the rainwater, use it for the animals, and even use it for yourself when needed.
If you’re a prepper, you know how important the water in those barrels is. Hydration is more important than food supply in case SHTF!
21. Work Gloves
Talk about some thoughtful gifts for the busiest person in the house. A reliable pair of work gloves is a lot of help around your homestead.
Garden work, gathering firewood, and the brutal cold can be very hard on your hands.
22. Fermenting Kit
Good gut health is essential. This fermenting kit is the perfect gift for your health-conscious family member.
Homesteaders always look to save money and have delicious food at the same time. The entire household can benefit from this too.
23. Swiss Army Knife
Anyone will be delighted to get a classic Swiss Army Knife this Christmas. Just imagine the look on your dad’s face as soon as he unwraps his present.
It might be a little bit tiny but has a lot of the everyday tools needed for homesteading.
24. Essential Oils
A starter kit of essential oils is one of the best Christmas gifts you can give your fellow homesteaders. Essential oils are known to be one of the greatest approaches to holistic medicine.
They're known to promote not only the health of humans but in animals as well.
25. Food Dehydrator
With food dehydrators, you can make your own dried fruits, jerky, or fruit leathers or even make fresh seasonings from your homegrown dried herbs. It's useful and very economical.
26. Carhartt Coat
Everyone in the homestead has one; others may have it in different colors and styles. But all the same, it is what is also known as a farmer or a rancher's uniform.
The Carhartt jacket is one of the best Christmas gift ideas for men.
27. Craft Supplies Kit
I remembered the first time I received as a Christmas gift, my very first cross stitch kit, and I was just over the moon by it. Any homesteader will love getting a kit of craft tools as a Christmas gift this holiday season.
Knitting, crochet, cross-stitch are crafts you will want to have passed on in your family. It’s one of the best past times there is, and it helps with the home decor as well.
Be it store-bought or homemade, every homesteader who lives in a location that is prone to the cold weather needs a scarf. I love this infinity scarf that doesn't require a pattern.
What better way to receive such a lovely accessory than as a Christmas gift?
29. Garden Tools
Steel-forge or plastic, there will always be a need for a set of garden tools in a homesteader’s front. So give this set of garden tools to your fellow homesteaders, and they will surely appreciate you for this!
