Every year, time flies particularly quickly during Advent. Only a few days until Christmas Eve and you still don't have a gift - more precisely, you're still a long way from it!
We know it's not just us, so we've collected a few DIY gift ideas that are not only super simple and creative, but you can also whip them up yourself without leaving home.
Whether for mom, grandpa, brother or aunt, there is guaranteed to be something for everyone with these DIY gifts!
Breakfast lovers are guaranteed to be delighted with a homemade crunchy muesli. You don't need much for the basic recipe:
-2 tsp coconut oil (alternatively rapeseed oil)
-2 tsp honey (alternatively maple syrup)
For all the other ingredients, you can let your creativity run free, or rather, just take what's there. Kernels (e.g. sunflower or pumpkin seeds), seeds (e.g. chia or linseed), whole or chopped nuts, cinnamon - everything your heart desires and the kitchen has to offer.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Mix together the oatmeal, nuts and seeds. Let coconut oil become liquid (microwave, saucepan, water bath) and fold in, mix in honey. Pour the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and spread out. Bake for 10 minutes, then turn and bake a little more, depending on how "crisp" you want it to be.
After the granola has cooled down, you can refine it with other ingredients, such as dried fruit or pieces of chocolate.
Pour the homemade granola into small jars and put a pretty label on them - and you've got a super easy DIY Christmas present!
Make broken chocolate yourself
Homemade chocolate is a nice gift from the kitchen. As a topping, use what you have or what your loved ones like best, such as Smarties, colorful sprinkles, dried strawberries, mini marshmallows, nuts, brittle, ...
For the base you need:
-200g white chocolate
-200 g milk chocolate
Allow the chocolate to melt in a water bath. Pour the melted chocolate to the desired thickness onto a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
Then sprinkle with the desired toppings.
Then, it is best to let the chocolate dry overnight. Lastly, break into large chunks and pack.
