This is where we step in to save the day. We’ve compiled a list of some of the most thoughtful, innovative and creative Christmas gifts that you can make or put together yourself that won’t break the bank and also won’t take up too much of your precious time. Some may say it’s the thought that counts, but constructing something with your own hands and time can be so much more meaningful.
Spending a couple of hours creating these DIY projects not only teaches kids important skills (patience, creativity, thoughtfulness), but also provides a time-out for the whole family to get together and bond. You’ll only need a handful of supplies to complete these projects, which means they’re budget friendly, too.
