Running out of time for gift shopping (or shipping)?
Well, you can stop stressing right now. Instead of spending hours on the internet in search of free, expedited shipping, sit down with your laptop and whip up simple handmade gifts that your friends and family will really love. Here are our top picks:
For Your Best Friend
Creativebug Gift Subscription
Through December 31st, when you buy someone a 1-year Creativebug subscription, we’ll give you a 1-year subscription to keep for yourself (you lucky thing). The friends that craft together, stay together.
Arm Knit a Cowl
The perfect combo of cozy and impressive. They’ll never guess how fast you made it.
Unless you get all braggy and tell them, so maybe just grab an eggnog already.
For the Kids
Felt Finger Puppets
Cute, fast, and cute.
For the Foodies
Make your own spiced bourbon, winter shrub, bitters and more. Cheers to the easiest gift you’ll make all year.
Gift with some hot chocolate mix and you, sir or madam, have won the holidays.
For Your Pet
Knit a Custom-Fit Dog Sweater
It doesn’t matter if they don’t like wearing clothes because look how friggin’ cute they are in it. They’ll live. And they’ll be warm doing it.
For Your “Cool” Friends & Family
Magic Braid Leather Bracelet
Looks harder than it really is. A LOT harder.
Make a Geometric Paper Collage
Paper scraps now = modern wall art.
You know their sign, you made them a necklace, and that means a lot.
For Everyone Else
Personalize a Gift Card
Make one of Lia Griffith’s custom gift card holders and you can forget about any of that “impersonal present” guilt.
