8 DIY Christmas gifts to make for friends

by | Oct 2, 2018

The great thing about a DIY Christmas gifts for friends is that they are generally inexpensive to make. So you can spread the love far and wide.

Once you gather all the things you need and get yourself organised, DIY Christmas gifts are always surprisingly quick and simple to put together. The extra amount of time invested is always appreciated by your friend too – nothing says ‘you matter to me’ more than a handmade gift!

While I’m looking for inspiration for my own friends this year, I thought I’d collect together some of my favourite ideas to inspire you too. Banish all ideas of daggy homemade gifts – these are all stylish and delightful.

Just so we’re clear: I’m no great crafter. If it can’t be made in a heartbeat, I just don’t have the patience for it. So these DIY Christmas gifts are all carefully chosen to give maximum impact for minimum effort.

Maybe you’d like to make a little something for a lovely someone this year too?
