Have some fun this year and take the stress of buying gifts out of the mix. Make some simple DIY Christmas gifts that everyone will love.

The holiday season can be a magical time of year. But when the thought of gift giving comes to mind, it can add some stress into the mix. Have some fun and take the stress of gifts out, and make some simple DIY Christmas gifts that everyone will love. These gifts are great for neighbors, family, co-workers and anyone else you want to give a small gift to.

For me, homemade gifts show you took time and thought about that person. I have gathered some of my favorite gift ideas for the holidays! If you have kids, they might even want to join in and help make these gifts!
