If you’re following the Holiday Countdown, you’re already aware I’m a fan of handmade gifts. Every year I plan on making at least one crafty item and a few sweet treats for the people on my list who have an appreciation for that sort of thing. Last year, I wrote a post on how I plan my handmade gifts, encouraging you to give it a try if you haven’t already. Basically, all it really requires is doing some research and giving yourself plenty of time to create swoon-worthy gifts in time for Christmas.
Because all handmade gifts are not created equally (I’m sure we’ve all sent at least one of these packing in our day), I thought I’d share some fool-proof ideas for some of the people on your list. Bear in mind, they aren’t for everyone. Definitely consider who is a good candidate for these types of gifts before you go through the expense and time to put something together. Remember, one gift does not fit all!
With that being said, here are a few of my favorite handmade gift ideas at the moment. I’d be happy to receive any of them!
