There once was a time when a DIY holiday gift was somewhat unpopular and undesirable. People looked upon them with disregard, considering them to be the fruitcake of gifts. The kind few wanted to unwrap Christmas morning. Oh, how times have changed. DIY holiday gifts are no longer banished and forgotten, but coveted and showcased. Done right, they can become some of your most well-received gifts without breaking your piggy bank.
