100 Gift Ideas You Can DIY


It’s probably not a surprise to you that my very favorite thing about the internet is getting to see ALL THE CRAFTS. There’s so so so so many. Endless projects, really. As a gal who went to high school during the heyday of AIM and anonymous chat rooms, the fact that we now have access to so much inspiration on tiny devices that fit in our pockets is mind-boggling.

All this to say, in spite of trolling and scams and fake news, the internet is still an amazing place to me, and I have scoured it high and low these past weeks to bring you 100 gift ideas you can DIY. I’ve organized them by category so you’ll have an easy time finding the right project for the right person. AND there’s even a few DIY gift wrap ideas at the end to make it extra special.

There’s a few weeks left before the holiday gifting begins, which is the perfect amount of time to make a craft (or two, or three) so you can have that one gift at the Yankee Swap that everyone actually wants. So before you click “buy,” why not DIY?

Feel free to roll your eyes at that last. Happy making!
