15 Handmade Christmas Gift Ideas


I love handmade Christmas gifts. Love making them, love getting them, love obsessing over them on Pinterest. Unless they suck, of course. Not to be ungrateful or anything like that but we’ve all seen some pretty cheesy gifts in our time. Obviously that was BP. (Before Pinterest). These days it’s almost impossible to make sucky gifts.
