Creative Do-It-Yourself Holiday Gift Ideas

Creative Do-It-Yourself Holiday Gift Ideas

Finding that “just right” thing to give to the select few who constitute your inner tribe can involve brain-wracking that leads to procrastination that leads to zoned-out meandering through claustrophobic malls that leads to last-minute impulse purchases online. In this hectic life where tuning out, turning off screens, and relaxing with loved ones seems like it needs to be scheduled, there’s one thing we could all use more of: self-care and the permission to practice it.  Instead of driving yourself crazy trying to covet that “perfect” gift, why not give yourself a break and consider creating your own gifts? That may sound like more effort than you want to muster, but this list of do-it-yourself holiday gift ideas is easy, far more personal than any store-bought item, and sends the message that you want the recipient to take care of him or herself. Sure, some of these make-at-home gift ideas might take a little longer than waiting for a gift to ship or buying a present in a store, but your thoughtful efforts will stand out among a sea of manufactured items.
