DIY Christmas List

There are a little less than two months left until Christmas. Still plenty of time to make presents for all you do-it-yourselfers. I need to get my butt in gear with my homemade projects but instead this morning I have been playing around on the computer looking for more projects to make. Like I need to add to my to-do list.

This morning I found all kinds of great inspiration for great DIY projects for Christmas presents. Things like neighbor gifts, stocking stuffers, great gifts for guys (because we know how hard they can be to shop for) and a lot of other fun things. And rather than keep them all to myself, I thought it might be nice to share them with you all.

One of the most comprehensive lists I found was on Tip Junkie. They are a great site if you haven't checked them out before. They have all kinds of great craft projects! The amazing thing I found was basically a search engine for gifts. You can search by gifts for everyone, kids, babies, neighbors, pets, teachers, men, grandparents, etc. The list goes on and on. It's really great! Check it out for yourself here.

Tip Junkie also has a link to all sorts of great Christmas projects at their "Christmas in July" page. There are great stocking stuffers, ornaments, party themes, Christmas Advents and other fun things. You can find all of that here.

Some of the hardest people on my list to shop for are the men. I try to come up with unique things to buy them every year but it seems to get harder and harder as the years go on. One of the hardest parts is coming up with fun stuff to go in their stockings. You can only have so many tape measures! I searched and searched for hours for great DIY men's gifts and finally found Everything Etsy. They have a great list of 25 DIY men's gifts that I think might save me this year! They also have a link to a long list of other wonderful tutorials of DIY gifts for men. I know I'm going to find great things on there.

Kojo Designs did an whole series of great gifts for guys. These gifts are some really wonderful things that I know the guys in my life would actually like and use. The link will take you to the search for all the related posts of guy gifts on the site. You can scroll through and see all the great stuff they have. One of my favorites is The Handy and Manly Garage Hook System. I can think of a few people who might like something like this.

And the last thing I've got for you this morning comes from Limefish Studio. She complied a list of 101 DIY tutorials and recipes for gifts. These are great gifts not only for Christmas but for any occasion. It is an incredible list, be sure to check it out!

I hope these help spark your creativity and help your finish your holiday shopping list.
