If there’s one thing we know about the holidays, it’s that it is a time for celebrating the spirit of eating. And maybe family and whatever else you’re in to. But mostly for eating.
With that in mind, we’ve scoured the Internet, both on an empty stomach and directly after a meal so as to not sway the results, and found 40 of the most delicious looking holiday cookies, candies and other treats. These are perfect for taking to your family, or even the office – the Mesa defense attorneys over at JacksonWhite couldn’t resist the cookies we brought in, for example.
A lot of them can be made yourself and given to friends. In fact, all of them can be. But why would you do that when you cane make them for yourself? Remember: when there’s an emergency on an airplane, you’re supposed to put your own oxygen mask on first. Just keep that in mind.
One of the best parts about coming home after a long day at work or school, or whatever, is plopping down on the couch and cuddling or spooning a pillow.
This is even better during the holiday season, when you know the pillow is potentially holiday-themed.
If you’re in the same camp, you’ll love the 27 DIY Christmas pillows we’ve picked out for this week’s post.
Christmas is all about buying presents, and part of that process is being able to hide what you purchased in the weeks and days leading up to Christmas.
With that in mind, it’s probably a good idea to have some DIY wrapping paper projects in the back of your head in case you just can’t make it to the store in time, or if you do go, maybe you’ll see that the only options you have are the typical, cliched Christmas wrapping papers that everyone has. As if!
Here are 32 DIY wrapping paper ideas you can use to make your gifts look as good on the outside as they are on the inside!
They say the economy has turned around recently. Job reports are looking good. People are smiling and not taking out financial frustrations on loved ones as often. Even consumer spending around the holidays is on the up and up.
But let’s be real. Buying Christmas gifts can add up quickly, especially if yours is one of those families that has no problem reproducing and growing at a rate that seems, at times, out of control. We are also one of those families.
In any case, going the DIY route when it comes to Christmas gifts is a great way to make your holiday budget go as far as possible. But it also tells people, look, I made this thing for you. I spent my time – WHICH I CAN NEVER GET BACK – on you. So…take that for what it is.
If that’s the way you’re going to play things this Christmas, and we put ourselves squarely in that group, then here’s a list of more than 70 ideas for DIY Christmas gifts. Some of them are good for anyone (who doesn’t like hot chocolate?), and others are better for kids, elderly folks, or significant others.
Some of them are good for friends, teachers and those people on the gray area of your network that are kind of like acquaintances but also more like strangers because you’d never in a million years include them in the list of people that gets a phone call as soon as you hear you’re pregnant or have contracted some rare disease that scientists are to this day questioning whether or not it actually exists (it’s all in your head).
So without further ado, here’s MostCraft’s Ultimate Guide to DIY Christmas Gifts. In no particular order.
We grew up in the ’80s, which means at some point our parents put ugly Christmas sweaters on us, took us to the mall and made us pose in front of a man who shouldn’t have been within 500 yards of children.
But those days are gone, and now Christmas sweaters are part of the over-the-top intentional irony that has come to plague much of modern life. Just kidding. Whether you’re attending an ugly Christmas party, or just want to embarrass your friends and family, here are a few ugly Christmas sweater ideas you can put to good use this holiday season.
Every year, we seem to have the same debate about Christmas ornaments. Do we make the tree look like it belongs in Macy’s, with expertly positioned ornaments and lights? Or do we give it some personality and make some funky ornaments that no one else will have?
Usually we end up somewhere in the middle. And no matter which side of the fence your family’s on when it comes to ornaments, you can use these simple DIY ideas to create your own Christmas ornaments.
Around this time every fall, we ask ourselves, “what kind of Christmas ornaments can we make this year?”
Inevitably it came down to this: candy cane ornaments. We shall make you.
For these simple ornaments, we used regular candy canes, jute, some hot glue and different ribbons and bells to add as “accent pieces,” if you want to put it that way.
What better way to prove to your friends, family and neighbors that you have “the most” Christmas spirit than by making your own outdoor decorations?
Anyone can go to Walmart, Target, Kmart, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Michael’s, Hobby Lobby or Kohl’s to get their outdoor decor, but it takes a real Holiday Cheermeister to do it yourself.
