20 Handmade Gift Ideas

Last year I shared 10 two twenty one handmade gift ideas, so I decided to continue the tradition this year, but I added 10 additional gift ideas.

Handmade gifts are seriously the best.  They’re great for gift givers on a budget.  All of the gift ideas below are under $30, but most are under $15.  Handmade gifts are also awesome because the gift recipient will value the time, sweat, and hot glue gun burns you put into their gift.

GREAT inexpensive handmade gift ideas!
