Last year I took the "Buy Handmade Pledge" & had so much fun picking out individual & personalized gifts for each person on my list and support independent crafters. This year, I've been inspired and I'm making my gifts for all of my friends. I think it means a lot to receive a gift that someone made & you can't buy in stores.
Etsy.com is the biggest resource for locating unique handmade gifts. These were just a few items that caught my eye, but I've literally spent hours on the site before oogling over the talent of everyone on the site! If you're up for saving some dough there are great DIY sites like DIYStyle & Craftster.org
Is anyone else making their own gifts this year?
