It’s tough to look back and try to think if there was ever a year that I felt completely comfortable with my Christmas budget. Gifts aside, there’s also travel, food, and unpredictable circumstances that you’ll have to deal with around the holidays. (Yes, we’ve all forgotten to pack underwear before and have had to make an impromptu Target stop.)
But what we forget as adults is that the most important part of the holidays is spending time with people we love. It doesn’t matter how much a present is — it just matters that thought went into it. Even if a present bombs on first sight, hearing the story about how it ended up in someone’s cart usually makes up for it and gives that present a little more life. That’s why there’s nothing better than handmade gifts. Not only did you put thought into it, but you put in time as well.
You don’t need to be an artist to make something special. But the more you do, the better you’ll get. So perhaps this is the year you’ll want to put your credit card aside. (That is, unless you’re buying a craft table.) With just a few household items (and maybe one trip to your local craft and hobby store of choice), you can create something special for everyone on your list.
Already panicking about how you might not have time to make presents for everyone? Breathe easy. These 14 holiday crafts and gifts that you can make at home won’t be complicated.
