Homemade Christmas Gift Ideas

Courtesy of Klutz.

Christmas is always a stressful time of year. You want to get your friends and family really cool gifts, but you're usually a little strapped for cash. Well, instead of taking on a ton of extra babysitting jobs, why not make your presents this year? These gifts are easy to make, but they'll wow anyone who you give 'em to. Check it out!


Homemade Christmas Gifts: Clothing and Accessories

Clothing and accessories at the mall can be way over-priced, especially at this time of year. So, instead of heading to the Gap, try picking up a pair of knitting needles. Even if you've never knit anything before, you'll be able to pick it up really fast - just grab a copy of the Klutz Knitting book. It comes with knitting needles, a crochet hook, yarn and six really cool patterns. You can make your peeps scarves, hats or even a purse!


Homemade Christmas Gifts: Beauty Products

Need some ideas on what to get your mom this year? Why not throw together some homemade beauty products? Bath salts, face masks or even all-natural shampoos are all things that look impressive. You could even put together a little gift pack for your teacher or sister.



Homemade Christmas Gifts: Baking

For this homemade gift, you may need a little help from a parent. Dig out your favorite holiday recipe and whip up a batch of cookies or other treats to give to all your friends. This is a quick and affordable way to be able to give something to your whole class or sports team.


Homemade Christmas Gifts: Mixed CDs

There's nothing better than receiving a CD full of all your fave tunes. All you need is a few blank CDs (which you can find anywhere, from your fave music store to the dollar store) and your favorite tunes. For your best buds, make a CD that will remind them of a certain party or dance you all went to, or maybe a soundtrack of songs from this past year. For family, throw together a Christmas music compilation that you can listen to on Christmas morning!

well this is kind of a long story but ill try to make it as short as possible. so it all started about 4 years ago. this new boy came to my school. he was super cute and all the girls had a crush on him. at first i did not like him in a crush way but after a while feelings started growing. we started talking and he seemed to like me to. after elementary was done we ended up going to the same middle school.fast forward to this year me and him are in the same class. while i was in 6th grade i found my best friend me and her been bffs since then. she is also in the same class. ever since the begging of this year they grew really close. they are always talking and it seems like she like him and vice versa. every time they are together i feel this overwhelming since of jealousy and anger. like is she better than me or??? the thing that really gets to me is that she knew i liked him. omg i need advice like what should i do :mad
