Whether it’s for your significant other, friend, or family, they will love and appreciate the thought and time that went into these homemade presents. And as an added bonus, these are all fun to make!

This gift takes a little bit more time to put together, but is so worth it.

It’s been one of the most popular crafting posts on FierceBeyond50 and it’s not hard to see why.
