If you haven’t started your holiday gift shopping yet, I’m sure you’ve at least started thinking about it. Time seems to whiz by at double speed this time of year, and the last month before Christmas always flies by before I can even blink! If you’re planning to DIY most of your Christmas gifts this year, now’s the time to get started (if you haven’t already!) Stuck for ideas? You’re definitely not alone – thinking up the perfect gift for someone is often harder than actually making it turns out to be! To save you the trouble, I’ve put together this ultimate guide to DIY gifts, whether you need something for men, women, kids, or something a little more general. Scroll down to see the goods, and happy gifting!
What do you get for the guy who’s got it all? Men are notoriously hard to shop for, but you can’t go wrong with hand-making a gift from scratch! These five DIY Christmas gifts for men are all things your guy can use.

In my experience, the women on my list are usually a little easier to brainstorm a gift for – mostly because we usually want the same things! These lovely patterns are perfect for the ladies in your circle this holiday season, and we won’t tell if you decide to make them for yourself, too!

At this time of year, stores are crammed with toys and kids’ clothes in every shape and color. Instead of buying the children on your list a store-bought gift that will be out of style by next year, make them something they’ll treasure forever – these cute sewing patterns will do the trick!
