DIY Christmas?

First of all I’m trying this new writer for the first time since they introduced it because I’m trying to like more things I don’t. I don’t know if I’ll ever like this if I’m being quite honest. This makes it a lot easier to accidentally publish something and I don’t like that. Anyway, I decided this year that I’m most likely doing a DIY Christmas for presents.

My friends Molly and Logan¬†recently started a wedding Pinterest board for me (don’t worry or anything I’m not even close to being married or dating) while we were registering for classes earlier this week, I think if you click the link you can follow it if you want to know about my nonexistent wedding. Since I’ve been spending a lot more time on Pinterest even though it’s terrible sexist and disgusting, they have cool crafts which has lead me to think that I should do a DIY Christmas gifts this year.

I know it seems like a cheap way of getting out of Christmas presents but for people who I am friends with and I know I can make something that they could use and is a quality item, would it make it worth it?

Personally, I have always loved handmade gifts that people take their time out of their schedule and lives to make, it’s much more personal and caring than something you could just find for anyone at a store. Is this just me though?

I have one friend that tends to do handmade gifts and other than that it’s not. I don’t know why this is, too time consuming maybe. So if I’m going to do DIY Christmas gifts I have to get cracking on these presents. What does everyone think about a DIY holiday present guide if I do it?

So basically this whole post is me asking, what is the opinion on homemade presents, good or bad?

    I love homemade presents! They are fun to receive because they are really personal and unique, but they are also really fun to give. When I moved into my apartment, I painted a canvas for each of my roommates. It was so much fun for me, but it was even better to actually give it to them and see their reactions. So anyways-I’m all for homemade gifts.

      Thanks for the advice! I think I’m going to do a mixture!

Tell me what you want, what you really really want!
