If you’re a crafty person, making presents for your holiday gift exchanges is a great option. Not only is it usually easy on your budget, but you also give your friends and family unique gifts which let them know you were thinking of them specifically. Depending on your area of expertise, here are four ideas to help you get started with your holiday DIY gifts.

  1. Bake – A festive tray of holiday baked goods which appeals specifically to your recipient’s preferences
  2. Knit – a stylish scarf or hat is always a hit, especially if you make it with your loved one’s favorite colors
  3. Sew – there is nothing like snuggling up under a warm quilt, especially one made with love
  4. Paint – dress up plain candle holders or drinking glasses with a one of a kind design

If you choose a knitting project for your holiday gifts this year, consider a visit to Cast Away + FOLK in Santa Rosa, CA to pick up any supplies you may need.
