Every year I like to tap into that creative vibe that many of us experience this time of the year. Get your imagination and crafting skills in high gear and make a few or all of the following home made holiday gifting ideas. It is always fun and surprising to the recipient to receive a uniquely crafted gift. Let's face it.
