Why Not Use Your New Home Ec Skills To Make DIY Gifts This Holiday Season?

An abundance of time trapped inside, socially distancing from friends and family, has encouraged many to turn to DIY projects as a way to stay occupied. Earlier this year, this phenomenon led an embrace of the cottagecore aesthetic, a boom in new hobbies, and loaves and loaves of sourdough all over our Instagram feeds. Though you may not be creating as much as you were at the start of quarantine, you can definitely use those home ec skills once again as the holiday season approaches. Instead of splurging on presents for loved ones you haven't seen much of in 2020, why not pour your heart into homemade gifts?
Whether it's a basket of baked goods or handmade jewelry, DIY gifts are a great way to show someone you really care. Plus, crafting them will keep you entertained through this upcoming pandemic winter. Ahead are some ideas for presents to make with your own two hands and newfound artistic energy, as well as all the supplies you'll need to create them.
