Here are over 75 amazing DIY Christmas Gift Ideas you can make for friends, family, or even your favorite neighbors…
‘Tis the season – the giving season!
Well, okay, it’s technically still October, but it’s getting really close.
I love Christmastime.
The lights, the snowy weather, the look on our children’s faces Christmas morning when they come down the stairs to see the presents under the tree…
There’s just something so magical about it.
I felt the magic as a child, and now I feel the magic as a parent.
I love seeing people open gifts I helped pick out or make.
It’s also way more fun to be involved in a gift enough to make it yourself, and I feel that it adds that extra touch to your gift that makes it even more special to the recipient.
In the past, I’ve put together a few Christmas gift guides for kids by age group:

And for certain types of girls:
GIFT IDEAS FOR HER (PLUS STOCKING STUFFERS!)
