Christmas is just around the corner. It is now crunch time. This means lots of last-minute party planning, Christmas card sending and, lastly, gift buying. For me, gift buying is so stressful. Who do I buy gifts for? What will they all like? And, of course, there’s the issue of money. I’ve already spent too much money this year, so for the rest of the people on my list, I’m planning to make my own gifts! I enjoy making things, and a homemade Christmas gift provides a personalized touch.

Here are some great DIY gift ideas that I’m considering.

Duct Tape Wallet

A duct tape wallet is a great idea for both guys and girls. You can use any color you want to make it either bright and flashy or more tame, depending on who you are making it for. It is a present that will last a long time, and I’m sure the recipient of this gift will be very happy to receive this useful and gorgeous gift.
