I love giving homemade Christmas gifts-it’s a great way to not only save money but also to put thought into your gifts. Sometimes, though, I think homemade Christmas gifts get a bad rap. DIY gifts don’t have to be boring or child-like. You can make your own gifts without breaking the bank or channeling Martha Stewart while still impressing your loved ones with your thoughtfulness, usefulness, and ingenuity!
Here are five of my favorite DIY Christmas gifts that anyone would love to receive this holiday season!
