My DIY Secret Santa Gift

I think we can all agree that a great DIY or handmade gift can mean so much more than the most expensive gift in the store. Handmade gifts are made with love and are personalized specifically for the recipient. Care and thought goes into the entire process, from the idea to the completion of the project.
