Some Fabulous Make-Your-Own Gifts Ideas

The holidays are fast approaching and not sure about you but I notoriously have those moments where the spirit of family and friendly gift giving gets a bit lost amongst the over-saturation of holiday-time consumerism, sale advertising, and societal expectations. Although it’s tough to make time for it and can’t cover all aspects of holiday preparations, I try to put together some home-made gifts to feel more connected to the spirit of giving, enjoy the creativity, and add that personal touch. Here are a few wonderfully creative DIY gift making ideas that I discovered and found particularly inspiring — from the pickled green beens (delicious by the way) to the magazine basket bowl (simple, colorful and sturdy). HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
