I love a good DIY gift. It’s heartfelt, I know the person spent time on me. I also love giving them. they are often cheaper than a store-bought gift, I enjoy doing them. I stumbled across a round up of upcycled baby gifts that got me started. these are all gifts people can buy, but just by looking at the pictures i can see how to make most of them.
