Handmade gifts are my favorite. I love the thought and time that goes into making each one. It changes the focus of the holidays from "what will I get for Christmas?" to "I'm so excited for you to see what I got you!"
It makes the best shift and I've seen it in my own children every year since they were little. Make the holidays magic and bright by making handmade gifts for the holidays.
The biggest thing about handmade gift giving, you need to get a jump on it! This is the time to start making gifts so you are ready for the holidays without becoming overwhelmed or stressed about it.
How do you give gifts in your home? Do you draw names and get one gift for one person? Or do you get something for everyone?
Maybe you've done a Handmade Holiday gift exchange before...what did you think?
I've compiled lists and lists of tutorial projects each year I've been blogging and I have 968 handmade gift ideas. Nearly 1000 ideas! There is sure to be something for everyone on your list.
