I LOVE Christmas. Like, I probably annoy my husband saying it so much.

DIY Christmas gifts are fun and often save us a little bit of cash which is great this time of year.  BUT sometimes they can be a bit tacky or just not something people will really use and come January 15th they are trying to figure out what to do with it.

I don’t want that for you ssssooooo I have compiled a list of DIY gifts and personally vetted each of the ideas shown and they are all beautiful and certainly not tacky. 

When you can take the time to actually create gifts for someone on your list. You will make them feel special because you didn’t just grab something random from the store.
