With a little over a week until Christmas, I wanted to put together a really big list of DIY gift ideas for the holidays before it gets too late. Only 2 weekends left! How is that even possible?!

I may have gotten a little carried away though because I almost fell asleep putting it together. Ha! For real though! There are so many good DIY gift ideas on the list this year – 63 projects to be exact! So there will be no excuse for not finding something to make for a friend or family member this holiday season.

Alright, roll up those sleeves and open up that crafting drawer! Here are 63 really good DIY gift ideas for the holiday season! P.S. I’m also dying to know what your favorite gift you ever received is! I shared mine after the jump, and I’d love to hear yours too.

Okay, before we jump into the big list of DIY holiday gifts, I want to ask you: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE GIFT THAT YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED?! I’m truly dying to know! I’m always so curious to know what personal stories people share for this question. And I’ll even go first, so that you don’t feel intimidated.

Here’s mine… My favorite gift that I’ve ever received was one that Jeff made for me on my birthday. He’s probably going to be so embarrassed that I’m sharing this, but here’s the story… We’d been dating for about a year at that point, and already living together. Clearly, not the traditional couple around here. Ha!  And he hand lettered a little poster for me, that said all these really sweet things, with some drawings and doodles too. We met in an art class, so these kinds of things were especially fitting at the time.

He hung it on the wall after I went to sleep, so it would be hanging up in the morning. And it was the sweetest thing to wake up to. And by far my favorite gift ever. Now, it may not sound like much to get worked up over. I don’t think I’m doing it justice in describing, so that’s my fault. But I still think about it to this day. I kick myself ALL the time over the fact that I don’t still have it. I think it got lost in one of our many moves over the years. But I’ll always have that memory at least.

Your turn! What’s your pick for your all-time favorite gift you’ve received?! Let me know in the comments below. And while you’re thinking about it…

My favourite gift ever was a red hair dryer given to me by my youngest son the Christmas before he tragically drowned on holiday the next July aged 7yrs 4 months. That was 34yrs ago and I still have it and it still works, 🎅
