DIY Gift Ideas

For all that I love buying people gifts, sometimes it can just be really hard to find that right thing for someone. And when that happens, I know exaclty what to do. I just DIY! So here are some of my favourite DIY gift ideas!

For once, I’m not going to be explaining everything in here myself – rather, I’ll group some of my favourite genres of DIY-gifts together and link you to some of my favourites – trust me, I’ve basically been preparing this post since August. You know, counting Pinterest and stuff.
