I don’t know about y’all, but my friend groups were really big into doing little gifts for everyone in our group for the holidays. It wasn’t ever anything extravagant or over-the-top. Just cute gifts that tied us all together as friends. Think BFF necklaces for, like, 10 people.
You can end up emptying your wallet pretty quickly around the holidays with all of the different people you need to get gifts for. I wish love was enough of a gift to give since there’s plenty of that, but unfortunately opening a box labeled “holiday love” doesn’t really thrill people as much as a present. Such is the sad truth.
That’s why I’m always down for a DIY gift. Actually, I like DIY gifts better anyway because they’re way more personal and touching than anything else. What’s better than a gift that says “I made this with my hands AND my heart”? Exactly, nothing.
So here are # DIY gifts that you can make for your entire friend group for the holidays!
