50+ Inexpensive DIY Gift Ideas

We’re still discussing gift ideas today.

I hope you’re not sick of them.

Today’s gifts are also handmade but may cost a little more to make. Even then they are still Inexpensive DIY Gift Ideas and range from $5 – $20. Not sure about how you do things but I usually have a set number in my mind of how much I’d like to spend for each person. I’ve tried do each round-up this week as if you do the same thing… Gift Ideas for under $2, Gift Ideas for under $5, and this one.

I sure hope it helps out if you’re going handmade this year. More than anything I like seeing that there are so many amazing and creative gifts that can be made while saving money. :)

Hope you enjoy these ideas as much a I did!

    That’s a great idea. I’d love to get something like that myself. I have always favored multiple small gifts over one big gift.

    Can I just say what a comfort to uncover someone that actually
    knows what they’re talking about over the internet.

    You certainly realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    More and more people should look at this and understand this side of your story.

    I was surprised you aren’t more popular because you certainly possess the gift.
