10 homemade Christmas gifts you will want to keep for yourself

It first begins with the removal of Halloween decorations and the trickling in of eager beaver shopkeepers stenciling snowflakes onto their shop windows. Then, the supermarkets start to slowly get involved, with their seasonal promotion shelves displaying advent calendars, selection boxes and bottles upon bottles of Baileys.

Soon after that, it is the battle of the Christmas advertisements, each trying to win our affection and stand as the klaxon ringing in the festive period. Christmas lights get switched on and illuminate high streets up and down the country, turkeys get pre-ordered, Christmas trees are decorated, and then all of a sudden, it is Christmas Eve - and you still haven't bought a single present.

The festive season is almost upon us, and we all know how quickly Christmas Day rolls around once it starts. Though the big day may still seem far away, we believe it is time to start thinking about gifts. You'll thank us next month.

So, now that your brain has shifted into present-buying-gear, why not try something extra special this year and make a gift? We know, we know, homemade presents can either go extremely right, or be a downright disaster. We are here to ensure that you avoid the latter, and receive a lot of Christmas love instead. But beware - these DIY gifts are so great, you may end up keeping them for yourself.
