There’s just something that’s absolutely magical about receiving a handmade gift. Turning it over in your hands, realizing that the person who gave it to you spent considerable time and thought on it — these are all wonderful feelings that rush over us when we’re given a handmade gift. And that’s why we’re huge fans of making things for others.
From wall art, to items for the kitchen and entertaining, to jewelry and even freshly baked goods, we’ve gathered our favorite DIY projects that would make excellent gifts. If you’re looking to make something special for your loved ones this holiday season — with your own two hands — we’ve got you covered. —Lauren & Kelli
