I feel like this has been a particularly divisive year. So many opinions and disagreements over the tough issues we’ve had to face. I think it’s so important in times like these to value our family and friends, even if we don’t always agree. Relationships are so much more important than winning an argument.
And how better to let someone know you care about them than with a homemade gift?!
(lol can you tell my love language is gifts?!)
Most of these DIY Christmas gifts for family can be made fairly inexpensively. Which I think is going to be key to the 2020 holiday season. This crazy year has affected everyone and many people are facing a lean Christmas.
But with a little creativity, we can still celebrate and gift-give joyfully and on a budget!
Since I started this blog I’ve been writing one of these posts every year. So now I’ve got a total of 75 (100 now!) fantastic DIY Christmas gift ideas rounded up.
Let’s get crafty!
