I really enjoy making homemade gifts for the people in my life but in most cases, the gifts I try to DIY end up costing more than if I just purchased already made gifts. Since moving to Los Angeles (and having more fun on the weekends) my budget is actually pretty tight this year. Thank goodness for Apartment Therapy's installation of Homemade Holiday Gift Ideas! They are posting new ideas every day and I'm loving them all. I have a very good idea of what I'm going to make for my friends already and it really will keep me under budget.
Here are just a few of the 13 they've already posted.
