Make Your Own Gifts

Make your own gift ideas


We all know someone who's craftier (as in handicrafts!) than a CBeebies Presenter. That certain someone who makes everything from scratch and makes your homemade cupcakes look like a child baked them from egg and play doh.

Although this super artsy friend or relative may make our own efforts look a little sad and silly, still, there’s nothing quite like your sisters expertly made Victoria sponge, your cousins hand labelled gingham topped jars of jam or your nieces surprising sweet homemade lemonade. Thankfully these up-cycling wizards are super easy to buy for when it comes to gifts and Cuckooland is here to show you how. All you need is one computer, one cup of tea (or glass of wine) and a headlong dive into our collection of Make Your Own Gifts. Our stupendous range of Make Your Own Gifts features cheese making kits, as well as bread and even butter making kits; perfect for when Aunty Dotty, the seasoned DIY’er is having friends over for afternoon tea. These kits are perfect as a gift for her or him. However, explore a little further and you'll find something especially popular with the fella’s in the shape of our homemade ale and cider brewing kits. View our full collection of Gifts for Him for more inspiration. The ingenious team at Victor’s Drinks (as seen on Dragon’s Den) have designed some easy peasy brewing kits for men who are serious about their ales and ciders.

So if you’re really wanting to think outside the box and are looking for a quirky or unique gift, why not buy one of our super easy Make It Yourself Gifts and put the joy of creation and production into the hands of a loved one as a gift! You could even join the party yourself by creating the perfect chocolate birthday cake for that special someone with our Chocolate Cake Home Baking kit. So whether you’re looking for a quick gift for a master baker or something unique and quirky for a loved one, you’re sure to find it within our Make You Own Gift range.

Kids Teepee Cabin Bed

Fantastic bed! My daughter loves this as do I, it is really well made and heavy and was relatively easy to assemble. It gives my daughters room a really magical feel, would definitely recommend.

Uuni 3 Wood-Fired Pizza Oven

So easy to use and produces simply excellent pizzas. Wood fire oven pizzas taste so much better and in the UUNI they cook very quickly indeed, (you'll need to turn them every thirty seconds or so for the perfect pizza). Well made product and only took fifteen minutes to assemble - even the correct tools were provided so no digging around in my toolbox.

The Garden Igloo 360 Dome

I love our igloo. Not too hard to put up, it's lovely to sit inside as the nights are drawing in. It's like a conservatory. Spacious too. We've added some fairy lights and candles. There is a slight smell of pvc but the fragranced candles disguise it. Looking forward to using it in the summer too and will buy the canvas cover. I may even put some flooring down to make it even cosier!

Kubu Rattan Hanging Lamp

Amazing first class customer experience!! Very helpful and honest staff. I will look here again!!
