DIY gifts are a great way to add that personal touch. I always find them so thoughtful and they tend to make a bigger impact than other store-bought gifts. They’re also great for sticking with a holiday budget. This DIY gift guide has you covered for all sorts of people including gardeners, fishers, girl bosses, and Secret Santas.

Originally this gift guide was going to include a video tutorial for the trinket dish, but to be honest, these 10 days of gift guides is kicking my butt more than I expected. I have all of the supplies so I’ll try and do the tutorial sometime soon.

#1 Spa Pack in Slippers

Make the woman in your life happy with a pampering spa pack inside some cozy slippers. You can fill them with a nice bath bomb, face mask, nail kit, moisturizer, chocolate, and anything else you think your lady will find relaxing. You could also make a guy version this with some lotto tickets, chocolate, gift cards, and cozy socks.

#7 Bottle Cap Fishing Lures

This is such a great gift for the fisher in your life. You could use any beer caps you can find, or make it really personalized by only using their brand of beer. Bonus points if you drink the beer with them, and tell them later that that is what the caps are from.
