Holiday DIY Gifts Ideas

The holidays are looking a little different this year, from organizing virtual family get-togethers and activities to most of us having a lot of extra time around the house with nothing to do on our days off. Even shopping is different, with so much of it taking place online that holiday shipping traffic kicked in early this year!

So if you’re looking for something to do and also need gift ideas, we have some crafty suggestions for you. Regardless of how near or far you might be from loved ones, these will make great handmade gifts that really show you care.
