I'm excited to present a post from one of my favorite sites, Stylelist Home.
The idea of a homemade gift might cause you to scream à la Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone, but we're hoping to change that stigma. Sure, homemade gifts can be a miss, but it's all about finding a great idea, which is where we come in. When done right, a handmade gift should be personalized for the giftee, making it more meaningful than any store bought item could ever be. From sentimental memory candle holders to colorful cross-stitch phone cases, we've rounded up a handful of amazing homemade gifts that your friends and family will love.
Memory Candle Holder: Turn your favorite photographs into gorgeous candle holders for your family and friends. Visit inspired ideas for the full tutorial.

Crossstitch iPhone Case: We absolutely love these cross-stitch iPhone cases. You need to purchase the Leese Design case from Purl Soho for $25, but after that you can sew whatever you want into the frame.
Scrabble Coasters: Scrabble tiles are a great for crafting! To make these playful coasters just glue the tiles to cork-board and seal the whole thing with modge podge.
