Top 10 Fab Gifts For Coworkers {homemade christmas gifts}


Here are my top 10 fabulous gifts for coworkers!  These are really cool homemade Christmas gifts that are fun to make. They include gifts you can use, wear, and even play with!

When I asked Tip Junkie Facebook fans what they wanted me to post about during our Christmas in July celebration, a few of you requested gifts for coworkers.  Really, I think any small gift can be tweaked into the proper colors for a coworker, teacher, or neighbor gift.  Here are my top 10:

My Coworker Gifts to Use

My Coworker Gifts to Use1.  DIY Camera Bag {Semi-Homemade} – A great camera bag can be expensive but a purse won’t protect your camera.  This DIY camera bag started off its life as an inexpensive but cute purse from a discount retailer. With a few alterations it is a stylish and functioning camera bag.
