Homemade Christmas Potpourri Gifts with Printable

I absolutely love having our home smell like a wonderful scent to represent each and every season. I can’t help myself. I always have a simmering pot of something to spread the aroma around our home. For Christmas I love the scents of cinnamon and baking. It gets everyone in the Christmas spirit too! Create your own homemade Christmas potpourri gifts with the simple steps below.Homemade Christmas Potpourri Gifts

You can really mix the ingredients up to whatever scent you would like to create. There’s no right or wrong here. It’s whatever you like! Be sure you don’t toss the extra on your stove top. Get good use out of it and leave it simmering to really get your home smelling wonderful.

Change up the ingredients for each season!

    I love this idea, it would be great in a basket with a few candles and a candle lighter.
