How To: 10 More Thrifty DIY Christmas Gift Ideas

10 More Thrifty DIY Christmas Gift Ideas

Last year, I wrote a post on "10 Thrifty DIY Christmas Gift Ideas" for people looking to get crafty during the gift-giving season. It seemed only right to do a followup this year with 10 more ideas!

Gift-giving for the Christmas holidays does not have to be an expensive ordeal. With a little handiwork and a trip or two to the craft store, you can make personalized, super-unique gifts that will delight your recipient and not break your savings account.

Got a lot of empty mason jars? Place cookie mix in a jar with recipe instructions or make a terrarium for the lazy green thumb who wants a very low-maintenance houseplant for his or her home.

The literary wordsmith nerd in your life may appreciate a personalized e-book reader case, a children's book clock, Scrabble tile drink coasters, or simply a blank journal to jot down ideas.

Marble magnets can add visual eye candy for anyone with a blank refrigerator door and for every other person in your life who loves Starbucks, you can't go wrong with a fabric coffee cozy.

Some of my favorite handmade / DIY gifts I've received from friends: 1. Handmade blank sketchbook journal 2. A hand-written voucher for a full-course home-cooked meal from my incredibly kitchen-savvy friend 3. I'm a sucker for hand-drawn cards, hand-drawn anything.
