Last Minute Christmas DIY Guide

I'm broke and I like to make things. Every year we have bloggers publishing lists of cool things to give people for the holidays, but if you're in the same boat as me, DIYs and food are the way to go. Here are some of the things I'd like to give this year:
  • Hot chocolate mix and marshmallows can't go wrong, especially if they're both homemade.
  • I don't think I'll be doing this for anyone this year, but I think any traveler would really appreciate one of these embroidered maps
  • Memento boxes are another cool idea, especially if you traveled with the person in question (you could fill it with pictures/trinkets from the trip, if you've thought through it enough in advance).
  • At least a couple people on my list will end up with various iterations of these. The sarcastic kind, probably, because that's how I roll.
  • And it might seem kind of obvious, but I plan to print out some of the photos I've taken and frame them for certain friends and relatives. It seems like fewer and fewer people are bothering with this lately, but it can be a really thoughtful gift.
So, there are some ideas for you. Go nuts! Some other, less thought-through options include make-your-own bubble tea kits, hand knit infinity scarves, and handmade jewelry, but you might need a little more talent/speed for most of those than I currently have.

I might be a little sporadic with the posting over the next few weeks. I'm working a lot, and as the title of this post should suggest, I am waaaaay behind on Christmas. I have half a gift for one person, and that's it. Things should pick up a little more regularly in 2015. Until then, I'll see you when I see you, and have a wonderful holiday season in the meantime!
