A good idea for a parental Christmas gift is a handmade Popsicle frame. Children can collect Popsicle sticks, decorate them in a unique way, and glue them together. A picture can then be attached to the connected Popsicle sticks to make a usable picture frame. Another do-it-yourself idea for kids is a hand print calendar. Kids can use non-toxic ink or hand stamps to put their hand prints on pages. Attach the different pages together, and this becomes a 12-month calendar. Another idea is taking a used composition book, removing the pages, and making it a personalized iPad cover for Mom or Dad.

Inexpensive ideas that a child can buy for his parents include portable USB chargers, a makeup set for Mom or a shaving set for Dad, earbuds, candles and books. It is also simple to combine an inexpensive gift with a personal touch. A child can purchase candles for his parents, yet make personalized candle holders with jars and lids found around the house, or from items purchased at the dollar store.
