DIY gift ideas

On Wednesday I shared my holiday wishlist and yesterday I started shopping (for my family, not myself :). This year, I'm determined to make something for everyone on my list. I love the personal touch that comes with a DIY gift and of course they're fun to make, too. Even if you don't consider yourself a DIYer, the ideas below are easy enough for anyone to try.

I love these DIY copper-leafed candles by Emily Henderson. Perfect for a stocking stuffer or a hostess gift.


There are lots of options for home baked gifts, but if baking's not your thing - or maybe you're just short on time - here are some really pretty ways to make store-bought goodies more gift-worthy.
