DIY Handmade Gift Ideas

I have to rat my mom out but I promise you she would agree with me – she’s not a very good gift giver. Like I said, she would absolutely admit it. I’m not sure what it takes to be a good gift giver (listening to people?), but I think some just aren’t.

I get it though. She did have five kids, and sometimes gifts for a bunch of people is hard. She did make it a little more difficult on herself by not allowing lists. If I had five littles, just tell me what you want, what you really really want. I don’t want to have to guess!

Anyhoo, gift giving ain’t easy. One thing I do feel always works well with recipients is something homemade.

They are thoughtful simply because of their personalized nature, and oftentimes becomes sentimental things that hang around forever. Which I absolutely love!

I personally love making gifts, so I picked 50 favorite DIY gift ideas I wanted to share with you that cover a variety of holidays and recipients.
