DIY (do-it-yourself) Projects The Ultimate DIY Holiday Gift Guide

The Ultimate DIY Holiday Gift Guide

Important Media (the parent company of Green Living Ideas) is composed of a group of writers and crafters and foodies, all dedicated to sustainable gifts all year-long. But at no time is this more important than the holidays, when the world is telling us to ‘shop until we drop’ and buy gifts for every human and animal we know.

The Ultimate DIY Holiday Gift Guide

But we think that the best gifts are those that are homemade or edible. These are often more eco-friendly, more heartfelt, and (if we’re talking about food gifts) definitely more delicious than anything store bought.

Over the years we’ve created a few gift guides, but here is our comprehensive list of all crafted, DIY, homemade, and edible gifts from our archives. Let’s get DIY-ing!
