I love making homemade Christmas gifts for friends and relatives. There’s just something extra special about getting or giving a one-of-a-kind handmade gift. Plus, making your own gifts can be a lot cheaper than the alternative.

There are so many different ideas for quality gifts you can make—more than I could ever list! So if you’re needing a little inspiration this holiday season, here are 25 of my favorite DIY Gift Ideas to try

    Amanda!

    I LOVE this post! Thank you so much. I’m a creative person and I love DIYing things but I’m not that great at it. And well, now that I have twins, it’s kind of hard – most crafts are for them!

    Anyways, this Christmas I’m going to make a calendar with the twins’ pics for the grandparents. I’m sure they’ll love it!

    I love the ombre kitchen towels!

      That sounds awesome! They’ll definitely love that! 🙂 And I totally understand. Sometimes I try a project and it just does NOT turn out right. Practice really does make perfect when it comes to making things.
