20 Easy Last-Minute Homemade Christmas Gifts

Besides the thought of getting someone something, which is pretty special in itself, gifts have become impersonal. Anyone can buy a gift during the holidays, but it's the ones that take time and effort to make that really stand out in the sea of red and green wrapping paper and ribbons. They're inexpensive to give, but really special to receive. And they don't even have to be that difficult to make, either.

DIY gifts are inherently one-of-a-kind, and putting that personalized touch on something can really outshine any store-bought gift. No matter how simple or small the DIY gift is, it shows just how much effort and time we put in to create something for someone else! Sorry, but Macy's doesn't have that in stock.

Let's all think back to some of our most prized possessions. We bet at least one of the items has sentimental value, such as the blanket that Grandma knitted for us when we were a baby. Point proven.

The gift-maker also totally benefits from making homemade gifts. Instead of spending tons of money in the hectic stores, or crossing our fingers that a shipment arrives in time, we can spend quality time with our kids or other loved ones crafting the gifts together. (Also, assembly lines are very efficient, so that's another reason to round up the kids.)
