25 D.I.Y. Gift Ideas for the Holidays!

Saturday, December 10, 2011


Hello Lovely Friend!! I just spent the day on a quest to find the perfect gift for everyone on my list. It was a challenge to keep my spirits up after dealing with angry shoppers & rude store clerks, but I was able to stay positive and excited about the holidays. 

As most of you know, I ADORE the holiday season. It almost seems as though the holidays have become even more important & special to me now that I'm older. As a child, we struggled a lot during the holidays. Even after my parents divorced, we still had very sparse holiday seasons and strange holiday gatherings. One year, we didn't have enough money for a Christmas tree, so I built one using green poster board, glitter glue, and colorful felt. 

The idea of DIY holiday decorations & gifts has always stayed with me. With a little bit of creativity, you can turn a small amount of money into some very unique gifts.
