15 DIY gift ideas for Christmas

DIY Christmas gifts

Ordering your Christmas gifts from Amazon Prime, last minute may be the height of convenience and believe me, I’ve done it before! However, if you can get organised and find some time to make your gifts, it’s not only more satisfying but a whole lot more meaningful. Handmade gifts don’t need to be dodgy knitted jumpers in all shades of the rainbow…don’t be that person. I’ve pulled out 15 DIY ideas that aren’t particularly complex or time heavy so you can get creative in the run up to Christmas. Admittedly most of these are more suitable for the ladies in your life but let’s be honest most guys only want you to head to their amazon wish list anyway.
