If you’re someone who loves to make handmade gifts for the people on your list at the holidays, you probably start thinking about and planning for those gifts early in the season! It takes time to make those special gifts, right?

I’m hoping it will inspire you in your handmade gift making this year and you will find a lot of happiness crafting these great ideas!
There are gifts for kids here, for women (think sisters, moms, friends), creative ideas for men (they can be way harder right?), and even neighbors and friends.
How many gifts do you usually make when you gift? Do you do all of them handmade or just some special ones? What are your favorite handmade gift ideas?
Let’s take a peek at these ones and get those ideas flowing!

Handmade Gifts for Men:
Ah, men! These may be the hardest of the handmade gift ideas to come up with-at least they are for me! One year I actually crocheted my husband an afghan.
