The best gifts don't have to empty your wallet.

How To Get Away With DIY: Holiday Edition

If you haven't noticed by the endless repetition of Mariah Carey's rendition of "All I Want for Christmas is You" playing on the radio or the sudden shift from Halloween decorations to all things Christmas at Wal-Mart, it's holiday time.

...And with the holidays, comes presents. (Usually.)

I know from personal experience that buying presents can be a stressful and expensive experience. But fear not! I want to help you make some super cute DIY (also known as, Do it Yourself) presents for every single special person in your life with the help of the best source of information since the invention of the encyclopedia, YouTube!

For Your Mom:

I don't know about y'all but I'm a little obsessed with Lush bath bombs. I've only tried three different types, but every bath blessed with a bath bomb is surely an experience. The only problem that I have with them is that they're a little ridiculous at the price point for a one-time item. This video uses products that you probably have laying around your house. The only thing that you may have to buy is the oil you desire to make it smell nice. This video explains everything plainly and it's easy to follow. You'll have a snazzy galaxy bath bomb that I'm sure Mom would adore in no time.

For Your Dad:

Now Dads (or, guys in general) may be a bit hard to buy presents for. As long as you keep them in mind and put a little personal touch on the present I'm sure they would love it. This video has loads of ideas for presents that I would have never thought of myself. And, a good amount of them look super professional. So, they may even question if you did it yourself after all. You're just that good.

For Your Bestie:

These little special gifts for friends are so cute and completely stress free. If you're trying to find a last minute present then these ideas are for you. My favorite is the personalized CD mixtapes. If somebody gave that to me I think I might have cry. But, they're all so adorable and show that you're really thinking about about them and now just aimlessly trying to find something to give.

For The Bae:

Even though this video says that they're for a boyfriend, I'm positive that if you wanted to switch it around and give it to the girlfriend it'd be just as beautiful. Your significant other will adore all of the gift ideas.

...And your wallet will love them even more. All of these ideas have a personal touch to them that the bae will remember for a long time.

I hope these videos gave you some great ideas for some presents to give this holiday season.

Happy Gift-Giving!

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
