Christmas is the time of year for giving, and what better way to give than to give something from the heart? Yes, store-bought items may be easier, but don’t always hold sentimental value. So why not impress your friends and family with something unique that’ll have them in awe not only by its beauty but also because you spent your valuable time to make them something special!

Why Use Christmas Embroidery Designs & In the Hoop Projects for Gifts?

With the holidays just around the corner, we all know things can get expensive. You may be hosting Christmas dinner or parties and giving gifts for everyone in the family, including your second cousin’s Aunt. With all these gifts, a hole burns in your wallet fast, resulting in any budgeting you’ve planned being put aside!   

By creating your own embroidery Christmas gifts, there are many ways to save money. Sale bins are your best friend! Who will know if you buy fabric out of the sale bin versus off the shelf. If it’s something festive or something your loved one would like, it’s a win-win. If you have several gifts to make, buying in bulk will help reduce costs. Another great way is to check your fabric stash! Yes, we all have one, and you’ll be able to create some extra space (let’s get real, more space equals more room for new fabric)!  

Giving gifts you’ve created has more meaning than something store-bought. When receiving something homemade, it tells the person, you’re worth my time, and I’ve given a lot of thought to the perfect gift for you. Plus, when giving these gifts, you’ll know they won’t be receiving anything else like it. 

Not only will you save money, use up material you already have, and gloat as you hear, “Wow, you really made that?” you’ll also have an excuse to get in that extra embroidery time before the business of the holidays begins.

Let’s dive into easy embroidery Christmas gifts you need to create this holiday season!

1. Toilet Paper Christmas Embroidery Designs

After the pandemic hit last year, buying toilet paper was like buying gold! We were in a toilet paper crisis. It was hard to come by, and prices were skyrocketing. This year, toilet paper is easier to access, and prices are more reasonable; why not embroider on toilet paper to create the perfect gift for someone hard to buy for. 

Add some humor to your Christmas gifts! Buying toilet paper in bulk no longer means you need it strictly for your bathroom but also for embroidery projects! This gift is fun and will give a chuckle to anyone going about their “business.”

To make things even easier, we also offer an easy step-by-step tutorial that shows you exactly how to hoop your toilet paper, inform you what type of roll works best with embroidery, and how to properly embroider on it. Click here to access our toilet paper embroidery tips now.
