I love giving gifts year-round but especially at Christmas time. Giving gifts is definitely my love language to show people that I love them. It might be why I find random reasons to give my friends and family gifts. While store-bought gifts are great, I have found that homemade gifts always add that little extra. Due to that, I created a list of over 20 easy sew Christmas gifts. The best part about this list is that even a beginner can make these Christmas gifts.

The reason I love giving sewing gifts for Christmas is the ability to customize the gift to the person. For example, I have a friend that loves flowers I can use floral fabrics in what I create or another loves chickens I can use a chicken-themed fabric. At some point or another, I have given these sewing projects as a Christmas gift and they were all well received.
