Handmade Christmas gift ideas

Can you guys believe Christmas is so soon?! Every year, I think I have my gifts all picked out and thought of for everyone...but then it gets down to the last couple of weeks before the holiday, and I still find myself struggling to find that perfect something for everyone on my list!

I love giving gifts at Christmastime, but it can be difficult to find something unique and meaningful for the same family members and friends, year after year. This year, I'm creating many handmade gifts. I think there's just something so old fashioned and sentimental about handmade gifts. Store bought gifts are lovely too, but I'm really craving a more down to earth Christmas this year...one that doesn't focus on how much money we're spending, and the crazy hustle and bustle that goes along with scrambling through busy malls every weekend.

I can't share with you exactly what I'm making just yet, in case my recipients read this post, but I wanted to give you a couple ideas that you could make for the special people on your Christmas list this year! Some of the projects are my own, which you may have seen before, and some I've found on other blogs! Click the links to go to the tutorials! You can always check out my projects page and blog archives for more ideas!
