Christmas In July! DIY gifts for family & friends
July 3, 2014 11:53 AM Subscribe
Due to family tragedy, last Christmas felt more like a never-ending marathon than a fun and meaningful holiday. I resolved that Christmas 2014 would be a more mellow, loving holiday that didn't involve hundreds of dollars flushed down the drain on disposable gifts. What are your ideas for meaningful Christmas gifts for family that take some time to make (or not!), don't cost much and might be actually appreciated and used?

I've seen the AskMe questions for DIY Christmas edibles and may incorporate those, but I'm curious about your ideas for crafts, photos, websites, experiences and other off-the-beaten-path gifts that don't cost much and could be planned in advance and don't scream "I only wanted to spend $10 on you". For example, I have a new baby niece and I'm planning on making her a doll that looks like her.
The ideas could involve thrift stores, urban foraging, internet research and time... just not oodles of $$. Thanks in advance!
