12 DIY Holiday Gift Ideas

Stumped about what to get someone for the holidays? Or maybe you're on a budget? Or maybe you just don't feel like buying something you're not sure they're going to use.

That's where DIY gifts come to save the day! Not only are DIY gifts usually more cost-effective, but they're also fun to make, usually consumable and leave you feeling creative and inspired as well. I always make DIY gifts and each year, the receiver is always super appreciative.

It just goes to show that you don't have to buy people expensive things. Sometimes just something simple and handmade is all they really want!

To give you some holiday inspiration, today we've rounded up 12 of the cutest DIY Holiday Gifts that are perfect for anyone in your life! Many of these gifts can be found right here on SQ, but I've also included ideas from some of my favorite bloggers as well. The more the merrier!
